Madden NFL 15 Looks Practically Petrifying on the PS4

Posted by Sammy Barker

If looks could kill

It’s that time of the year where this editor starts panicking over who’s going to review the latest American Football game. While our UK-based office is brimming with footy fanatics, the majority of this team has a fondness for the wrong kind of beautiful game, and that’s likely to cause problems when Madden NFL 15 touches down.

Still, maybe our disinterest in egg-shaped balls may prove positive after all, as EA Sports’ latest non-soccer sim looks practically terrifying in this brand new trailer. The footage is designed to demonstrate the quality of its next-gen player models, but Carolina Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly looks anything but impressive in this clip.

The game’s due out on both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 on 26th August, meaning that we’ve got several months to solve our reviewer dilemma. Moreover, it will give the publisher time to pick a cover star, with the firm planning some form of ESPN poll over the coming weeks. Our vote goes to that one guy with a helmet...

I've owned Every Madden since 2000 so I could review it if you NEED someone to do it. But in all seriousness, I'm expecting a big leap from last year's game. I got it for PS3 and PS4 and to be honest there wasn't much of a difference except that the menus ran smoother

I do understand how the character model could go into the uncanny valley for some but it's not creepy at all to me.

Just putting it out there- as an American and good patriot, I love me some good ol' football. The last couple of Maddens have been lacking in some really important modes so I hope they rectify the issues.

I loved the Madden games right up through 2005. Starting with 06 it seems the series has been on a steady decline. As a huge NFL fan, here's hoping the new gen brings a return to form for Madden. If not, I hope something happens so 2K can make a comeback.

@Gamer83 couldn't agree more. I have been playing Madden since the Genesis days, and the last great Madden game was '05. I would even make an argument for '04 since the addition of the "hit stick" isn't that big of a deal to me.
