Madden 16 vs Madden 15: 10 Key Differences



Play the Ball or Play the Receiver

Play the Ball or Play the Receiver

EA delivers a new feature that makes it easier to play the ball when you are on defense if you need to come up with a big stop. After the throw tap B and then press Y to attempt an interception or a deflection. The video below shows one way we used this to stop a big play at the end of a game.

You can also choose to press A to go for a receiver stop. We used this to stop a player with inches to go towards a first down and again to hit a player right away in the end zone and force an incompletion.

With the option to choose and hints on-screen the player has vastly more control than in Madden 15.

    My son tells me the graphics and some of the news options don’t translate to PS3? If this is the case why wouldn’t that be full disclosure? He’s not happy!

      Tony, do your son a favor and go out and buy him a PS4, I can’t believe your dumb enough to think, that the new graphics and other options would work on an old console. COME’ON MAN !!!!

      None of the new features translate to the old consoles. Eventually, every hardware cycle reaches its limit. For 360/PS3 sports games, that was 2013. They couldn’t add any of the new innovations to those older versions, even if they wanted to. Hardware wont allow it.

        No wonder. I have an xbox 360 and my game looks nothing like the commericals, videos or pictures of the game. This is such bullshit. That is false advertisement. This is something that needs to be disclosed I wasted $60 bucks on a game that has barely any changes than my madden 25. I could have just updated the dame roster and saved myself the money. I want a refund but I doubt they will give me one. I bet I won’t even be able to play it either once I get an xbox one since I downloaded the game on the console.

          Bullshit? False advertisement? Why would people buy new gen consoles if the graphics look the same as the old 360/ps3? You sir are bullshit.

    All of you need to stop complaining. The game is still an advancement for the 360. I think that it is fun, and you are just one bored, spoiled, rotten egg. Carry on my friends.

    You can’t complain about graphics if you have a 360…graphics aren’t getting any better for the 360 anymore they are as good as they are gonna get. Xbox ones and ps4s are the real deal.
