As EA was preparing to release Madden 22 in the weeks prior to launch, the conversation was about new features in the game . From new player classes in Face of The Franchise to a revitalized chemistry format within MUT, EA was playing buzzword Bingo in the lead-up to the launch.
While some of the brand new additions to the series are welcome however, some (such such as Home Field Advantage), seem long overdue. Other additions (such as Superstar XFactors with additional Superstars) build upon the foundations that are already in place. Overall, though, there's a lack of any tangible difference between last year's show.
At launch, the game was plagued by bugs, and a lack of attention to details and particularly showed Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa throwing the ball with his right hand, regardless of the fact that he's one the few QBs who are left-handed in the league.
Moving past all of these glitches, bugs and the like, the new features within Madden 22 are fun, but do not add much to the basic gameplay of Madden. The mood EA is trying to create with many of these Home Field Advantages is wonderful, but the simplest bugs , like the fans in the crowd wearing different uniforms to the ones they're holding reduce the overall experience of the football sim.
