Ffs I just bought this, 2nd hand for alot more (mad) , good find
Last played Madden 19 so can't comment on last years effort but your right it's the same with every EA sports iterations with some slight gameplay and graphics tweaks. Interested in seeing the PS5 upgrade though as that made FIFA 21 a much better looking and playing game imo anyway.
I haven't really seen much change since NFL 2021, it's the same rehashed game every year with a minor change and a new high price tag and all your microtransactions reset back to ZERO is you play Ultimate Team (which I don't). Didn't this game lead to a giant outcry of fans wanting the NFL license taken away from EA due to it's broken nature very poor change from 2020 to 2021 with 2020 assets still in the game, of course all the fault EA won't loose the license it will never happen. But I do choose the vote with my wallet and never give EA a single penny. If I do purchase these it's usually second hand just or play a friends copy through game pass.
I don't agree with the usual EA in game monetisation but if you don't get dragged in to all that they still make decent NFL sports games.
Better yet, vote with your wallet and don't buy this at all. Don't give EA a single penny.
