As the start of the football season looms, the annual Madden arrives on store shelves. This year’s edition is a bit different though. Of course most of what’s here is the same Madden fans are used to with roster updates, and even the newer Ultimate Team mode. The big addition, however, is a story mode following QB Devin Wade as he tries to make an NFL roster.
The story mode, titled Longshot, is much more than just some cutscenes shoved between regular games. It’s similar to the story mode in NBA 2K14 (and I assume newer entries) in that there are adventure game-like choices to make, but it’s far more in-depth than some dialogue choices between full games, and thus is much better.
