The hardcore Madden fans could be focused on Franchise, Madden Ultimate Team, and online modes . The game's exhibition mode allows players to enjoy a leisurely game that can be tailored in a way that is very flexible. This isn't the case if players want to experience the feeling of being in a playoff game. The only options available to players can be to participate in an exhibition or the Super Bowl. It's a wonderful option to let players play or simulate NFL playoff games like the Wild Card or a conference championship.
The NFL loves to celebrate its history every chance it gets but it's odd that the league hasn't been pushing for the same legacy to be incorporated into the game. Yes, some football legends are part of the game as part of the Ultimate Team mode. However, players are only permitted to play with the 32 current NFL franchises that exist currently.
EA should allow players can dress for classic teams of years past like the Dallas Texans or even a really old school team in the Canton Bulldogs. While there's always a lot of critique from the Madden fans about various aspects of the game. However, one main problem that has been an issue for fans has been the mechanics of offensive lines.
The linemen in real football must adjust their blocking style based on the game. However it's always been the case that offensive linemen play every down the same way. While Madden NFL 21's transition to the next-gen version saw some improvements , it remains an important part of the game that has to be fixed.
