Anthony Nash of The Koalition writes: When Madden NFL 18 released last year, it was a breath of fresh air for a franchise that had grown pretty stale. Not only did they improve upon the visual aspects of the game, but its Longshot mode, and the inclusion of a full-fledged story mode, in general, signaled a much-needed change that Madden was willing to do what was necessary in order to shake things up. Though sports games as a whole will never be able to truly change – you can’t exactly completely reinvent the wheel when you’re a football game – they can still improve and add things that will keep players more engaged. Does this year’s iteration, Madden NFL 19, do that? It’s a mixed bag, but the answer isn’t as clear as we’d like.
