The running game is noticeably smoother and X-Factor traits make superstar players actually feel like a force to be reckoned with on the field, and while there are still problems that linger with animations, it’s safe to say that EA Tiburon is making large strides in the right direction. That said, I’m running out of patience for the Franchise mode to receive some revitalizing updates – it’s still fun after all these years but Madden 20’s Franchise doesn’t feel substantially different from Madden 19’s.
At this time in the console life cycle, we’d expect games like Madden to be at their largest and most feature-rich, trying everything they can and retaining previous work before shedding it all at the launch of the next generation. And Madden NFL 20 simply isn’t that. Perhaps we’re past that now, with new hardware not meaning a full engine rework and development teams considering other factors in their decisions. However it got here, it’s a distilled, slightly faster game that focuses on ironing out its rough spots rather than introducing anything that could cause new ones.
Madden NFL 20 remains solid from a fundamental perspective, and the addition of X-Factor abilities is a welcome change. However, the usual litany of bugs and a lackluster single-player story mode prevent this entry from taking home the Lombardi.
