Thing isit doesn't really add much to a year's game. In fact, besides this new mode, those updated rosters, and also what amounts to Madden 21 coins a on-field pruning tweaks (which could have been an easy upgrade to Madden NFL 20), it hardly brings anything new to the table. Madden NFL 21 does not do anything wrong -- but it certainly doesn't do anything truly new, either.
It is a problem, and one that just might have you performing a double-take at dropping $59.99 for the name instead of just saving up for a next-gen console.
Madden Ultimate Team, the obligatory microtransaction sinkhole, is competent. There is a fresh Be-a-Player mode, using a lead voiced by Tye Sheridan (Cyclops from the current run of X-films), and it's solid. And on-field gameplay maintains last year's X-factors and Superstar skills, which finally made the NFL's best players stand out somewhat from, state, Bo Scarborough.
Presentation: What I do enjoy and buy Madden nfl 21 coins my small positive remove from this match is your in-game demonstration. I am a big immersion guy and they've taken meaningful steps in this area. Pre game intros are nice and there are a variety of cutscenes in the midst of gameplay. User controlled parties should have yet to be marketed as a huge attribute but it's kind of pleasant as a little addition if it had been said as such. It is nowhere near 2K but it's much better than any other Madden on this particular console Generation.
