Madden NFL 15 Overview (Synopsis and Features)

The biggest name in video game football returns for another season of gridiron action with updated rosters, improved presentation, and a new emphasis on defensive options and control in Madden NFL 15. Players can now deploy an expanded set of pass rush maneuvers, make use of new man- and zone-coverage schemes, and use the new tackle cone to decide whether to execute conservative or aggressive tackles. Other new features include pre-snap movement and block shedding techniques along the defensive line, a new playcalling system, and more realistic passing accuracy and catch animations.

Game presentation has been altered dramatically, with dynamic new pre-game and halftime shows, and six new pre-snap camera angles designed to evoke the feeling of classic NFL Films productions. The Connected Careers and Connected Franchise modes return to let games guide players or teams through seasons of online or offline football action, and Madden NFL 15 also aims to help players hone their basic skills with the expanded Skills Trainer, and the new Gauntlet mode. The Skills Trainer now includes lessons in strategy as well as technique, and in Gauntlet, gamers take on 40 different challenges, including boss battles. The Ultimate Team mode also returns for those who like to mix card collecting with their football action.
