update- Awesome Game!!! Worth Your Time
By SGT horn
Updated Review- Wow, I am surprised of how much the quality of this game has improved from when I previously had it on my phone. Before, on a normal rate it would take me a good 3 tries too actually get in the app! Now it hardly ever crashes... in fact it hasn’t crashed since I re-downloaded the game!! The only downside too this game is that every once in a while there is a connection timeout, but then again that maybe happens at most twice a day, on a bad day lol! Other then that, the game is great the GRAPHICS have improved soooo much! Also I love the new real time pvp mode!!! Definitely the best Madden Mobile ever!! I only hope it remains the same the remainder of this years version, seeing how much it improved has me excited for the new version next year!! I mean it will probably be even faster!! As of this point you’re literally playing Madden on a ps3/Xbox360 on YOUR PHONE!!! AMAZING, I really hope this game gets more attention, like when it was new and had SOOOO many players , because I guarantee they would be as happy as I am!!! GREAT GAME,
Worth YOUR TIME!!!! Amazing job devs!!!
OLD REVIEW- I used to play this game all the time, now all it does is crash. I really don’t wanna hit that X button (delete) but this is getting ridiculous!
I can’t even open the game, this happens all the time, not just after the recent update. Please fix the game.
YES AMAZING but 2 problems! MUST READ
Ok this game is always my favorite. i wanna get straight to the point on 2 problems i've encountered. One of them i've actually mad about the other is not to bad. First problem is on the 24/7 players stuff. So you can trade in players to get tokens for teams on the my items and click on the player. Ok yah that's not bad but what is bad is you try to do it more than 1 time u can't. there is a timer which is perfectly fine ok. but the problem is i can't find it anymore for the cowboys. i put in the 6 players after completing it 1 time and now i can see the set nor can i open it and claim it and i can't do it anymore for the cowboys please fix this for me to get 24/7 players. And the other problem is the Madden Masters achievement. yes they will take a long time. i can do the 750 live events, win league tournaments, win super bowl 5 times. But doing the math you have to get to gold tier in head to head 25 times. Well the season for head to head is 30 days. so how can i complete it if i can only get 1 collectibles every 30 days which adds up to 25 collectibles in 750 days. Please fix this so i don't have to wait a little less than 2 years to get this and get madden masters Tom Brady. Thanks for all who read this review. This game is awesome i'm still going to play it and still recommend it to people to download!!!!
Great game but with some frustrating and glaring flaws
EA... fix your game. Whenever I play all madden gameplay, and I throw the ball deep, the receiver gets bodied up and is unable to even get to the area where the ball is. I lose a down, and I waste stamina and tournament tickets on a busted play due to uncalled pass interference that is so obvious a five year old could look at it and say “that’s not fair for the receiver”. All madden gameplay is also nearly impossible otherwise, especially in tourneys where we have a limited number of tickets without spending hundreds of dollars on the game. When base gold linebackers can jump nearly ten feet high to intercept a lob pass that is intended for a receiver ten more away, or when a 99 overall lineman can’t block a base gold defensive end, your all madden mode has some obvious flaws. Now while I’m hating on you EA, I still recommend the game. Mostly everything else runs very smoothly and is entertaining. I do wish draft champions were available to play whenever we wanted instead of only once every weekend. While the graphics aren’t very good, I get that it is the mobile version and it is tough to add good graphics without the game being several GBs big, but why not when most people nowadays have phones with at least 16 GBs. Like I said, I do thoroughly enjoy this game, and it is very entertaining. But there are some glaring flaws that need to be fixed.
Good but worse than last year
EA has came a long way in making their game the best football game on the App Store, but there are three key things that EA needs to fix. First off, since they made overalls go higher than 99, auctions require lots of money. Last year, you could buy an elite for 20k coins, and now it’s around 100k. Auctions are my way of getting around 95% of my players, simply because it was quick, easy, an efficient to use. Because of this, I had a 92 overall team. Now, it is insanely hard to buy at least get an 85 overall player without spending half a week gathering coins then spending them all on one player. Then, there is the remodeling of the game. This is more of a petty problem, but I still don’t like it. They changed the uniforms, scoreboard, menus etc. when it never needed to be changed. Humans are petrified of change, and when EA does something like this, it just doesn’t feel right. It looks like it’s trying to make the game look a century ahead of real time. It doesn’t look good. Finally, there is trading. I know that EA has recently released a trading scheme, but it still doesn’t float my boat. Madden is based off of the NFL, so it needs to be realistic as possible. You should be able to trade players, coins, and collectibles among league members. It just makes sense to do so. I hope EA makes these changes to Madden. And if they do, this game truly deserves more than a 5 star rating.
Newest update with this league bank
Pass interference is ridiculous and the super human speed when your receiver is clearly open gets run down and smacked in the face. You can’t even match teams up that are remotely close to each other in head to head and forced to play them. I’m proud of the teams I so hardly work at getting just to see them get pulverized by outrageous plays. I’m sure my teams do the same to other players that feel the same way as I do when they realized there’s no chance as soon as your stuffed on every play. I love the game don’t get me wrong and play constantly just wish it was a closer match up with no glitches such as I truck he spins or ball hits a player and flies 20 yards and I’ve seen it fly all the way back to end zone one time at 50 yards. Just some things are getting unrealistic and your team you build just totally acts stupid sometimes for no reason. Other than that rock on its fun as hell. Again end of season and it’s bull how the match ups are. Even if you have better players pass interference and super human speed run down for an interception is ridiculous! You want a better game get rid of that, get rid of balls flying 50+ yards when tipped, get rid of no chance in hell match ups. You can’t even build your coaching staff up at a decent rate before the seasons up. Don’t get me wrong I love the game but everyone here knows exactly what I’m talking about!!!!
Awesome Game! But...........................
Alright, if I’m honest, this is by far the best madden mobile game to date, and I hope that they somehow get better over the course of time. Thank y’all for making this such an easy and fun game, but there has been a small little... not so much problem... more annoyance you could say. Alright so when the Christmas and New Year season on the game began to come to a close, I couldn’t complete any important sets, nor could I acquire any more snowballs and merchandise items for the sets, so I just let them be, until one day I open up my item inventory and see that there are like 50 items in there. So I think, “Hey, no big deal. I’ll just see if there’s some miscellaneous collectibles set I can put all these pointless collectibles in.” There’s not. So, I think some more: “Well these are virtually dead to me, so I guess I’ll just quicksell them for a few coins and get them the heck out of my hair.” Sure enough, I can’t do that either. So now I’m stuck here with like 30+ snowballs and 20+ madden merch items that I’m just staring at. If y’all could incorporate that sort of set in the next madden season, or just let me quicksell them for crying out loud, it would be much appreciated. Once again, I am very happy with this game and I hope y’all keep it up.

I love this game and I play it pretty much every chance I get. I love the fact that they give away free players for the super bowl and such. I just convinced a friend to get it just before the super bowl thing dropped and he complained that he wasn’t getting any good players then boom. He went from a 65 to a 74 in a week. I went from an 88 to a 91 in 2 weeks thanks to the pro bowl and super bowl promos back to back. The fact that they gave away an 85 player and a token every day was amazing because last year for the trial master you had to trade in the actual player, now since they gave you the player and the token for the set you can keep the player and trade in the token to get a 95 hb( who by the way is an absolute beast). I have almost no complaints. I only have 2. #1 why does the h2h master Tom Brady take 2 years to complete when you have a year to complete it. That’s the only section I have t gotten yet. #2 for the super bowl MVP why is it 12 elites. I have put all of my stamina towards the super bowl live events but have still only gotten 2 and am 5 towards a third. It’s like only the people who buy madden cash can get that set, I don’t so that’s a problem. But overall the best game yet. I love the training and the 1 minute stamina recovery instead of 10 minutes.
Please Read 😦
This is the absolute best madden mobile game ever! The graphical experience is better than ever. There are a few problems though. As far as penalties go, there are much too little. When playing season battle, I have seen my opponent team hold, do pass interferences, and dirty hits....They don’t get penalized for even a bit of it. Also, I think it’s rigged because in season battle I was winning and in the last 3 seconds the New England Patriots passed a Hail Mary, caught it, and took it for a touchdown! And the in the last 9 seconds of another game against the bengals they took a kick return for a touchdown and won it! And seriously, I mean common! It’s the bengals🤨. When do they ever do that anyway? Also this year when I started my new account, I got NO elite player! 😡 What?! They always give one free elite at the start of the season. Also, needs more events that award XP. It’s really hard to get XP. Not only that but it’s soooo much harder to get coins than it was last year. Also, my brother and I were in a league with our cousins last season. This year my brother and my cousin cannot play because they took it off of kindle fire. 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😢😢😢😢😢😢 Also, would absolutely LOVE ❤️ if you guys would put TV announcers like Jim Nance, Phil Sims, Chris Colinsworth, and Al Michaels. Please EA, fix these issues and put it back on kindle fires. I would appreciate it so so much.
Countless issues that have been ignored
Various bugs including a repost duplicate issue which messed up the market. Time boosters didnt work. Stamina boosters didn’t work on the last day of MF events. The whole dredzone maze was messed up on the last day. People bought madden cash and used them on various MF locker items but these items did not work as advertised. The ringleader events also don’t work/unlock. EA’s excuse for stealing our money is that they had to launch other games? So because you couldn’t meet your deadlines, it’s okay to put out a faulty product and take our money without giving what you advertise? Unacceptable. I’ve tolerated EA’s poor service the past couple years but this has by far been the worst experience. We have to file claims or communicate with EA’s incompetent outsourced workers whenever they mess up and lose our rewards or burn our madden cash. And even after hours or days of asking for proper compensation, there’s no guarantee you get anything back. Maybe 200 madden cash thrown in your face to cover the several issues they never bothered to fix. EA doesn’t care. They have a tiny team working on mobile and the members of that team don’t seem to care. They have bugs every time the release something new. They even have typos/incorrect spelling at times. They essentially submit rough drafts and don’t check their work but collect our money. Their community reps also can’t seem to take any criticism. This company is built with trash.
Not really a football game any longer.
By KS G-Dawg
Great graphics but it is much more of a video game now that happens to use football players instead of dragons. What do land mines in events have to do with football, especially when they only effect your players? And as has always been the case, EA seems to play one game behind the scenes that doesn’t match what is being shown on the screen. Your guy may have landed six feet into the end zone, but EA is still going to call you down on the 1. I even had someone invisible tackle me. Your runner often trips himself and falls down. Everything is still way too random and based on an algorithm that only EA can see to be about skill or a challenge. You might as well be playing something with puzzles and wizards as Madden Football. We used to have ways to make coins and upgrade players but now everything has become pay to play where if you want something, you had better bring the cash or you will be waiting a long, long time. Coins are hard to come by this year, so why would a pack with a gold player be 50,000 coins? The gold guy is worth no more than 4,000 to maybe 5,000, so who in their right mind would every buy a pack with the few coins you can get? Really everything boils down to H2H matches that go on and on and on. They have a few events and daily objectives but you don’t get much from those and I have not found one this year that was worth using Blitz coins to play repeatedly.
