Mike Stubbs: "There are issues in Madden 16, but ultimately the on-pitch action and the game modes on offer present what is easily the best Madden package of this generation so far. Draft Champions is not only a great mode on its own, but also removes the first irritating hours from MUT, which itself is still going strong. The changes to franchise mode make it easier to play and not the database crawl that it once was, and the new goals system offers more depth. The important thing is that Madden 16 is great fun and not at all frustrating to play. The load times are a big issue but are ultimately more of an inconvenience than anything."
