At the end of the day, Madden 19 is much like Madden 18 before it. The formula works, so I don't blame EA for not wanting to drastically change it up each year. However, as a result, I'm left wondering whether it's a waste for someone who really doesn't play most of Madden's modes to upgrade to 19 this year - and I would say that answer is no. If all you play are a few exhibition games with friends, last year's installment is perfectly fine.

EA has cranked out solid installments year-after-year, and this iteration is no exception. They’ve made strides forward on many fronts, including more realistic controls, new ways to interact with lineups in franchise mode, and several additional Ultimate Team experiences. Sure, there still might be the occasional physics quirk, but Madden NFL 19 still cements itself as the premier football simulation on console.

Outside of the visuals boost, Madden NFL 19 feels more iterative than last year’s entry of Madden did. The series’ dedicated and interested fans that buy the game yearly and sink hundreds of hours into its game modes shouldn’t have any major issues outside of some glitchy menus, but not enough has changed to make Madden NFL 19 a worthy entry for newcomers or casual players who picked it up last year.

A stunning return to form for the annual football franchise – and one of the finest all-round Madden packages in years.

It’s easy enough to recommend Madden 19 to sports fans, but if I’m trying to get someone new started, it feels like last year’s game is required reading to get the most out of this year’s entry.

Madden 19 returns the primary focus where it belongs: that moment-to-moment gameplay between the end zones. It’s only true stumbling point is the lackluster story mode that fails to recapture the magic of the first, but that's entirely offset by the new player handling that once again leverages the power of the Frostbite engine.

Madden NFL 19 is ultimately the complete Madden of the current generation. Necessary changes to gameplay and Franchise Mode make it feel fresh and the improved visuals help complete the updated experience. There are still some issues with gameplay on the defensive side of the ball, but having the Real Player Motion helps in adding new ways not only to move the ball down the field, but celebrate.

Madden NFL 19 is, in pretty much every way, less exciting than its predecessor, at least on a conceptual level. Last year’s game had a new engine and a completely new mode to boast. This year’s biggest selling point—Real Player Motion—definitely makes running a more viable offensive option. Otherwise, all you’re getting is part two of what’s becoming an unnecessary trend in EA’s sports-related telenovelas and a whole lot of advertising for Madden Ultimate Team.

Madden 19 doesn’t have earth-shattering features that draw me in. Some new features don’t shake out how I hoped they might, and other problems haven’t been fixed. But I’m still going to spend hours with this title for the way it captures the sport and puts me in the center of it with some fantastic gameplay moments.

Longshot: Homecoming may be short, but Tiburon’s teen drama is well-presented and well written, while Franchise mode includes some oft-requested features, like draft classes. Ultimate Team, meanwhile, continues to be a grind – but it’s an addictive one that’s made all the more compulsive by the roster of gameplay improvements made elsewhere.

If you’ve played Madden in the last several years, odds are you already know if you’ll enjoy Madden NFL 19. That isn’t to say the game does nothing new or better over the previous game, but it is very much another iterative game that will make you go, “Yep, that’s a Madden.” Whether that’s a good thing or not is really up to you.

The central problem here is that the overall game has also taken a huge step back. If you can get used to the running mechanics and deal with waiting for EA Sports to patch up some of the bugs, Madden 19 really is worth your time. But if you're, say, a Steelers fan looking to rush for 3,500 yards per season with Le'Veon Bell? You might want to rent this one first.
Kat Bailey — Aug 02, 2018
Madden 19 is a solid, if occasionally ragged, follow-up to last year's big transition to Frostbite. The improvements to the animation and franchise mode stand out, but Longshot: Homecoming feels like a step back from last year's ambitious introduction. The multitude of interesting but mostly subtle updates ultimately make this an entry that is primarily geared toward hardcore fans of the series.

For returning players, Madden NFL 19 does exactly what you’d expect, offering a fantastic rendition of the NFL experience with improved graphics, tweaked modes and other minor improvements. However, if you’re not a franchise devotee, 18’s introduction of the new engine, full training mode and Longshot’s superior first season makes it the better option for newcomers.

Madden NFL 19 is a sublime example of what can be achieved with a sports title. The "Real Player Motions" generates that feeling of not 'controlling' players, but rather living as the players instead. Seeing how lifelike all the players are within a match, and how they communicate with each other before and during plays, and then watching them seamlessly get into the next play, is freakishly uncanny.
Timothy Nunes — Aug 22, 2018
Madden 19 has the kind of defense that makes this game worth buying, and spectacular plays are more spectacular than ever. Uncomplimentary menus and peculiar gameplay simulations keep this year's Madden from being something profoundly special. Still, there's plenty here to feed the need for more football.

Madden NFL 19 es una entrega muy notable, que incluye importantes mejoras jugables gracias a las nuevas animaciones, renovadas opciones y modos de juego, y uno de los apartados gráficos más increíbles del género deportivo. Fútbol americano en estado puro.
Víctor Rosas — Aug 07, 2018
Al mismo tiempo, las mejoras en los modos de juego más importantes, Franquicia y Ultimate Team, garantizan semanas de diversión que se verán impulsadas por el inicio de la temporada regular y la interacción con la comunidad. ¿Madden NFL 19 es una experiencia tan satisfactoria como ganar un partido con un pase Ave María? Todavía no, pero está cerca de que eso suceda.
Pedro Herrero — Aug 17, 2018
Estos es principalmente porque reduce -aunque no drásticamente´- la profundidad en beneficio de la accesibilidad. No obstante, Madden NFL 19 se convierte en una de esas entregas de franquicias deportivas que hay que tener y si somos de los que de cuando en cuando se saltan alguna debido a las escasas diferentes, no será este caso con la iteración de esta temporada.
Netoman — Aug 05, 2018
Las repeticiones son agridulces. Sí, algunas te muestran datos importantes, pero en otras la cámara llega a estar lejos de donde está lo relevante de la jugada. Para ser un elemento visual relevante, el cuidado es menor de lo que podríamos esperar.Madden 19 es un gran juego de fútbol americano. En la jugabilidad básica es mejor y se siente mucho más intenso.

Il suffit de quelques heures de jeu pour comprendre le succès critique et commercial de la série des Madden NFL. Beau à se damner, accessible au premier venu compatible avec cette discipline, et doté d'un contenu inouï, le jeu d'EA Sports nous plonge dans le quotidien d'une franchise NFL avec un réalisme saisissant.

La modalità storia è un po' la delusione dell'annata (una realizzazione un po' troppo frettolosa), mentre Franchise e MUT fanno il loro dovere. Sul fronte online non abbiamo registrato grossi problemi ma dopo una serie di patch e aggiornamenti era il minimo. Da rimarcare poi il ritorno su PC della serie dopo una decina d'anni di esilio forzato: speriamo di rivedere anche NHL!
