EA spent a lot of time on Madden 16 upgrading the passing game. In Madden 17 we saw a major emphasis on the defense, making Madden ratings matter more, enhanced realism and making it easier to play.
The new Madden 18 features we know about include new play modes, new play styles, target passing, coaching adjustments and graphics upgrades thanks to the Frostbite game engine that powers FIFA 17 and Battlefield 1.

Looks like I’m first. Another yet of promises and another year of exploits.
We already see the exploit and unrealistic passing they have already which to a degree lets you target the WR. I can see this making for some messy games because there is no INTELLIGENCE behind the feature. Just because you target someone doesn’t mean they will be READY for the pass. This game does NOT respect route running and timing.
Day ONE… no matter the video or what gamers who tell us differently with their canned disclaimers… I will show the SAME ISSUES continue to exist in this game and features is nothing more than a marketing tool rather than a true feature.
I’m posting videos from M17 now and will look for them to continue to exist in M18 and I will post them IMMEDIATELY this time around.
The videos will consist of Gameplay (the most important: Fake AI, Fake Physics, Predetermined tackles, etc… ), Playbook (creation, editing, settings, flow), Practice Mode, Commentary… yes commentary is not just about updating a players last week stats and status for this week to play, Game UI while playing (lots and lots and lots of bugs).
Having improved graphics and poor game play doesn’t make for much of an improvement.
