Should you try Madden 21 on Xbox Game Pass?
Madden 21 has been the most divisive installment of the game ever. While modes like the debuting The Yard and Face of the Franchise got plenty of love areas like Franchise and presentation were left in the cold.
From our Madden 21 Review:
Everyone knows that the mode largely went untouched. I mean, there’s a reason why #FixMaddenFranchise became a thing that resulted in the higher ups at EA being forced into issuing statements promising an upgrade to franchise mode this season and beyond. The game’s franchise is more of a mid-year patch than a full mode update in a new game.
Sure, we get a nice pregame show highlight reel when you get into a game, but the fact that this is basically a copy and paste from last year with an updated user interface, at a time when Franchise mode has been on the hot seat for years within the community, is a slap in the face to everyone.
