Madden NFL 20’ goes through the motions The quality of the “Madden NFL” franchise ebbs and flows. The stellar titles have broken new ground with gameplay innovations or visual upgrades while other releases have been content to stand pat and refine a formula that EA Sports has worked on for decades.mut coins “Madden NFL 20” falls in the latter category. The newest game in the series is more evolutionary than revolutionary as developers at EA Tiburon build on an established foundation of three phases: Madden Ultimate Team, Face of the Franchise: QB1, and the franchise mode. This time around, Madden Ultimate Team takes center stage and makes it easier to navigate one of the more complicated but deeply rewarding facets of the series. It stands out when starting the game and taking novices through the process of grinding and building a custom roster by picking up cards. The process has a fantasy football element as players construct teams that couldn’t exist in real life. By tackling missions and opening packs purchased through in-game coins and real world currency, they can craft a team in which John Elway throws touchdowns to Michael Thomas. The revamped mode makes it easier and faster to construct squads and upgrade players they already have. Everything can be done in a few button presses, improving the quality of life when sorting through the roster. It’s notable how Madden Ultimate Team has been pushed to the forefront while the Franchise mode — once the centerpiece of the game — has taken a back seat. Franchise mode remains mostly unchanged from previous years. Players still take on the role of a coach and guide their team through several seasons to the Lombardi Trophy. They’ll see young players progress into stars and older players regress as Father Time catches up to them. It’s how players can experience the core elements of “Madden NFL 20.” They’ll discover a game that hasn’t changed much in terms of gameplay from last year’s version. It’s still more accessible than previous efforts and the contests move at a quick pace. Meanwhile, EA Tiburon recommits to its groundbreaking story mode, but it moves away from Devin Wade and Colt Cruise from the “Longshot” story. This time around, players create their own avatar in “Face of the Franchise: QB1” and take the signal caller from college to the NFL. It’s not as polished or extravagantly produced as the previous narrative, but it does a good enough job of casting players as a once highly touted prospect who is buried on the bench in college. An injury to the starter pushes him to the spotlight during the College Football Playoff National Championship and puts him back on the NFL radar.Click Here
