Don't waste your time on this game, who ever decided to fixed what was not broken from the last app to this update really screwed up royally. It's not a true NFL represention of the games and no real rewards for actually finishing all the unnecessary match up to unluck all of the playoff games to Superbowl. I like the old app much better than this new updated app.
i dont know if its something with my phone or the game, but the game wont load up at all. it shows me the ea sports screen but then immediately takes me back to my home screen with no explanation. i just got this so i could play on mobile but now it seems i cant??!!
So it messes up during the super bowl event for a lot of people and then the update happens and its good but then it starts messing up for me again. it only loads to around 40 something then kicks me off the app. Im getting real tired of going through this and its messing up time needed for the events. like can you either fix it or give me a solution
Countless issues that have been ignored
Various bugs including a repost duplicate issue which messed up the market. Time boosters didnt work. Stamina boosters didn’t work on the last day of MF events. The whole dredzone maze was messed up on the last day. People bought madden cash and used them on various MF locker items but these items did not work as advertised. The ringleader events also don’t work/unlock. EA’s excuse for stealing our money is that they had to launch other games? So because you couldn’t meet your deadlines, it’s okay to put out a faulty product and take our money without giving what you advertise? Unacceptable. I’ve tolerated EA’s poor service the past couple years but this has by far been the worst experience. We have to file claims or communicate with EA’s incompetent outsourced workers whenever they mess up and lose our rewards or burn our madden cash. And even after hours or days of asking for proper compensation, there’s no guarantee you get anything back. Maybe 200 madden cash thrown in your face to cover the several issues they never bothered to fix. EA doesn’t care. They have a tiny team working on mobile and the members of that team don’t seem to care. They have bugs every time the release something new. They even have typos/incorrect spelling at times. They essentially submit rough drafts and don’t check their work but collect our money. Their community reps also can’t seem to take any criticism. This company is built with trash.
Game is fun to play but the fan awarding system is the most unfair in any game I've ever played. Beat an opponent rated 200 points better than you, gain 1200 fans. Lose to team rated 200 points better than you and lose 3400 fans. There is absolutely no rhyme or reason to it. The more you play, the more you don't get credit for winning and the more you get punished for losing. It would be an awesome game if it was just fair.
Bugs, Glitches, and Matchups
Oh man! Where to begin with this one. I want to play this game. I really want to enjoy it. However, I can’t due to three rage fueling problems. This is obviously MUT like on counsel. You start out with an absolute garbage team. Might as well have tennis players on the field. The game forces you to play repetitive challenges to chip away at getting halfway decent cards to upgrade your team, of course you could drop hundreds at a slim chance of something good, but hey go for it if you want. Now for the actual problems that need a fix immediately. Like I said before you start out with a garbage team. The ranked is anything but that. You get matched with people who have 500+ more power than you and Ovr all 15+ or better cards than you. It doesn’t end there. At least 3-5 times a game you can’t throw the ball no matter how many times you smash your screen. This happens in ranked and in the challenges. Continuing on when you think you have your opponent beat they rummage up 150 or more sometimes extra points out of nowhere to steal the win. This could be from the opponent taking a dump on your crappy team due to mismatch. From the controls not working, to heavily unbalanced matchmaking to constant game glitches, it makes for an awful experience. It’s not enjoyable to spend hours for one lousy card that won’t make a difference with the rest of your team in the 50s ovr all. Once these game breaking problems are fixed I might play it again.
2/10/19 - I just want to play football! The latest update makes me do a dozen useless things, but I can't play a football game against the computer like I could before the update. Every year this game gets worse. Who's running the show over there? They should be fired.
Was good but has gotten progressively worse. extremely hard to get top players. huge money grab. now it crashes constantly. contacted support weeks ago with no response or fix. many people are having the same issue. it is broken and EA has lost a very active player as a result. very disappointing after all my work to get to an 88 overall.
Not really a football game any longer.
Great graphics but it is much more of a video game now that happens to use football players instead of dragons. What do land mines in events have to do with football, especially when they only effect your players? And as has always been the case, EA seems to play one game behind the scenes that doesn’t match what is being shown on the screen. Your guy may have landed six feet into the end zone, but EA is still going to call you down on the 1. I even had someone invisible tackle me. Your runner often trips himself and falls down. Everything is still way too random and based on an algorithm that only EA can see to be about skill or a challenge. You might as well be playing something with puzzles and wizards as Madden Football. We used to have ways to make coins and upgrade players but now everything has become pay to play where if you want something, you had better bring the cash or you will be waiting a long, long time. Coins are hard to come by this year, so why would a pack with a gold player be 50,000 coins? The gold guy is worth no more than 4,000 to maybe 5,000, so who in their right mind would every buy a pack with the few coins you can get? Really everything boils down to H2H matches that go on and on and on. They have a few events and daily objectives but you don’t get much from those and I have not found one this year that was worth using Blitz coins to play repeatedly.
To new players: Any review posted before August 15th 2018 was for the old madden. Madden overdrive is a complete overhaul and unlike previous editions of Madden, they just decided to keep the hundreds of thousands of reviews for the last 4 years of madden. They took out the football simulation feel of the game, not that it had much of one, and replaced it with an arcade game. It has that old Blitz football feel, with none of the fun. Countering opponents with “overdrive points” feels more like a task than a feature. They only have 2 packs that can be opened with their in game currency at the moment, unless you want to buy the $40 starter pack they display to you after a loss, they also have less, and more, expensive packs that you can pay for to get that sense of pride and accomplishment. Sets are gone, you now have to grind events to receive tokens and banners, and wouldn’t you know it, you can’t even grind events without blitz tokens, which you can spend on grinding events or buying packs that aren’t great. Overall I think they’re trying something too ambitious, people play madden for simulation, they want to build teams of their favorite players and score touchdowns to win games. If this was a stand alone game it might get an audience, but it seems more likely it will just alienate their existing community by completely making the game pay to win, and frustrating users to the point they have to spend money to even have a chance.
Great game, but some game breaking glitches
I’ve had a blast playing this game since it came out, but recently I have found a bug that has literally made the game unplayable. After finishing my drives in a championship overdrive match, I decided to play a season game. Quickly after entering the game, the score glitches to the score of the championship overdrive game, and it ended when my offensive drive did. It forced me out of the game. That was strange, but it wasn’t game breaking. After this I entered another championship overdrive match, and then another with no wait time between games. At this point I decided to leave the app and play it again at a later time. 20-30 minutes later, I checked back to see if any of the players I put into the auction block had sold, only to be horrified by the app loading me in, and immediately kicking me out due to an “unknown error.” I tried exiting the app and re-entering, I tried doing this with and without WiFi, I tried powering my phone off and on again, I deleted the app and reinstalled it, but nothing worked. If this bug doesn’t get fixed, I will never be able to play Madden Overdrive again, and the worst part is, I’ve been playing since Madden Mobile 25 and never before had I encountered a bug this bad. My team is currently sitting at an 89 overall, and depending on what happens with this bug, it may stay like that until Madden 20.
game is fun and i could play it all day. if it would let me even play, it worked well for a while and all of a sudden everytime i tried starting a match it would close up, this cost me about 15 losses already, its not my connection cause ive tried everything and my phone works fine. i would like to get this fixed, ive spent money in this game and i'd hate for it to get ruined cause its really an incredibly fun game. ill update my rating once the game starts running well again
This game used to run completely fine. I'd get the occasional network timeout but generally pretty good. Now, however, the game crashes whenever I try to play any event. I've even changed the quality ro "very low", something I've never had to do before and it still crashes. Sort it out, now.
Love this game but there are a lot of issues...connectivity is poor the game will freeze on a loading screens frequently enough to be an issue... the game was just updated and it’s horrible so much worse then before. In overdrive players with 65 speed randomly get boosts to 125 speed on both sides of the ball. Also if u are beating someone badly out of nowhere it gets super easy for either party and they catch up... there’s not enough player options everyone I face has high overall aaron Donald, Barry Sanders, Deion Sanders, etc. everyone just has the exact same players lame. My game froze during the new blitz tournament so I lost and lost a ticket contacted support they blamed my WiFi no help. Also when bidding in an auction I’ve had the high bid and then just kicks u out and and u don’t get ur player no matter what the case. And when in play the game will be laggy jittery jumpy, not all the time but frequently. That being said it’s an addictive fun game but it comes with its frustrations. Also u cannot view ur whole playbook and u cannot practice those plays or at all u just have to learn in the game. And there are certain run plays that only work once the second time the whole entire d line breaks free and gets ya other plays it will never ever happen needs work easy fix... I guess I have to add to this post since it’s the only review u can get.. I had some great things to say now but I must refrain due to the circumstances
EA, You guys scam a whole lot and have a lot of issues. Ea ranked worst company of the year
The head to head is garbage fix it because of the fact that there is an overal difference when there should not be and that it makes no sense that a defensive player can pick a ball when they are facing another way also the fact that you guys made upgrading is terrible for head to head because a normal fat guy like dt de cannot run that fast and gives there defensive unfair advantages and also that only a certain kicker can hit the ball right at the 1 yard line is stupid like who made that idea and the stupid head to head system makes defense way to op and is dumb because I lose half of my game to some scrub using a budget beast team and they only have like a 100 overal when I have 115 so I’m really annoyed and you guys deleted the gift system which is dumb because of one retarded YouTuber did some dumb things does not make it far for us also Christmas was a big scam I though it was going to be amazing I only got like 1 elite player out of 6 elite presents wth. And also you’re stupid only 20 pro packs a day is dumb because it use to be fun know it is not because we can’t get unlimited pro packs and that’s only because you guys want money cause I know EA is ranked worst company of the year because all you guys want is money but some people enjoy it and have fun but since you got rid of all this stuff now it is not.
EA what are you doing!!!!!!!??????
EA you have seriously made this game so frustrating and not enjoyable to play anymore. Everything about this game this year has been a mess!!! Everything and I mean Everything!!! From the live events to upgrades and completing sets. The games graphics looks nice and that’s about it but the actual game is trash. The overdrive is so incredibly inconsistent that it makes you not want to play it. My team is 1500 team power and when I play a team who has only 800 team power they tear me up. Plus 5 or not it doesn’t matter cuz the games are fixed from the beginning. EA got caught using A.I. Bots in overdrive!! Come on man that’s so shady. EA controls the auction house so you can’t make any coin unless EA seems fit!! Why!!!!! You have to pay real actual money to get anything in this game!!! The live events give you the lowest amount of collectibles to complete sets it’s ridiculous. Player stats don’t mean anything this year. Like I said I’ll get beat by terrible teams with nobody legit and I can’t do anything to them. It’s crazy. Everything about this years madden mobile has been a disaster!!!! EA you messed up big time. There was nothing wrong with the last years version. I’m so upset with everything about this game anymore. Who is developing the garbage on this game. There have been so many things that are wrong with this game it’s terrible. What is EA doing??!!!!
Glitchy to the point of being unusable
I’ve played this game for the past two years and loved it. However, with the latest update, EA has sucked the joy out of playing by eliminating most of the features I enjoyed (e.g. real head-to-head matches that were based more on skillful play and play-calling and less on the ability to run plays quickly; the ability to practice the game in season mode; and setting game plans to trip up opponents). They also eliminated the ability to choose the difficulty of the defenses you play against (i.e. all-pro, all-Madden, etc.), and seem to have ratcheted the difficulty to the equivalent of all-Madden for everyone. Most of these changes could be gotten used to in time, but the app CONSTANTLY loses connection to the EA servers and automatically logs out (when it actually manages to log-in in the first place). This has happened in numerous critical moments for me (e.g. playing LVL drives; in the middle of Overdrive matches; and when trying to bid/sell players in the auction house). This has cost me opportunity to advance in the game as well as real money. I should note here that each time the app has crashed for me, I was either on WiFi with a fast connection or on cellular data with strong signal available. At this point, with all the problems, coupled with the loss of features available in previous versions, I have no desire to continue playing.
The app keeps kicking you off and constantly having to reload the app. gameplay is good but passing to the receiver icons could be integrated better. maybe with small receiver icons on the lower part, or vertically on right side of the screen because your fingers block the field of view when trying to pass the ball.
This is supposed to be a realistic football game
Why would you ever limit plays especially to 2 its a joke you have removed almost every last bit of realism this year overdrive is dumb enough it’s arcade fantasy football not madden football in the nfl you don’t win unless you get in the end zone but because people who aren’t good at the game can’t compete with us real players they complain and you make it so they can get badly out played and still win then they start complaining they can’t compete in lvl so you limit plays to make it easier on them it’s ridiculous in real football when you find a good look on a play you go back to it in your game you can’t why wouldn’t you just bring back not all but just the frequency counters so you can’t call them back 2 back but in a long drive can go back to it every 3 or 4 plays or if you don’t want that how about a timer like you have on scrambling (which is stupid too why can’t I run wit my qb whenever I want) so you have to wait a few plays your making a lot of people who are serious about the game and have been playing for years upset and quit because to us it sure seems since the end of last year you’ve been catering the game to those people not the ones like me who have given you thousands of dollars and take it seriously and are actually good at the game and we’re all about sick of it
The should've never change the madden mobile style. This overdrive is horrible. If you don't spend money. It's going to be a CRAZY grind to get the players you want. I miss the seasons and the players in the auction is overpriced. Also, The controls are wierd. I like to swipe up to get a boost for the reciever to catch the ball. They changed it to a tap. I just don't enjoy playing the game anymore. I'm going to have to look elsewhere! 🤦🏽♂️
What happened to the good days?
I am an old time player of Madden, I used to love this game to death and would grind on it. But now, it’s ruined. Last season wasn’t to bad, but this is just awful. No more sets, no more season mode, players go over 100+ overall making most elite players expensive, the game is more confusing. How much to I have to search just to find a event? Why can’t they all be in the live events page? Also it’s so much harder to get good players now, I swear I have to grind for 3 weeks to get a 88 overall elite players, like why? And why does the events always give me terrible rewards, oh I just need 400 more of this terrible item along with 3 other really rare things to get a 90 overall player, it’s not like I have a limited amount of stamina, I don’t care about the stamina limit, but make the events actually worth doing. This is the worst year for Madden Mobile by far. I swear a 1990s 8-bit game would be better than this. I doubt this will ever be as good as 2016 again, that season was gold. Wasn’t impossible to get a elite player and the events were easy to find and actually gave good loot. Since this game has become complete garbage I have moved over to your other game, FIFA Mobile, I hope you don’t ruin that game too. That’s about it for this review. Fix your game EA, it’s at its worst point.
I used to play the old Madden Mobile to the point where my parents almost disowned me because I was on my phone all the time. This new version of Madden has totally turned me off of playing it that I am actually referring to games of lesser value to satisfy my enjoyment. The graphics are amazing, better than any seen on literally any other app. However, the game never loads properly for me, there is no legitimate season mode for those who don’t want to play online and want to play a normal 16 week season with playoffs and whatnot, and it is super impossible to get players unless you farm coins from events. I’m a casual player and fan of football, but when I play this I don’t feel happy. It is always too hard to get a pass to a wide open receiver with no pressure, and it just ends up making me frustrated. It’s always too hard to pick up 10 yards on an outside run with an 80 OVR offensive line, 80 OVR running back, having a huge hole with nobody in front of you, and playing a 60 OVR team. You only get 2-5 yards because some corner on the other side of the field comes and tackles you. It’s unrealistic and it’s not tailored to casual fans anymore. It’s almost too complicated for something that’s supposed to be fun. Disappointed in what it’s become and wishing it were back to what it was.
This game is absolute trash now. 2016 was great, 2017 was tolerable. 2018 jumped the shark. I had 31 people in my league, this new season 10 have left and at least half of the remaining are “last played” 1+ week ago. We have no activity on our chat any longer which used to be packed with comments and our league survival and lvl were always played / passed. Now we can’t pass easy because nobody plays. Live events are way harder, the packs for coins are garbage. They removed sets but gave you banners (still seems like a set) but you need so many different items and things are buried where you can’t find them...I don’t know what anything is for half the time. No descriptions on live events. The only way to know if you’ve played is to see if it costs blitz tickets or is free. But hey, you don’t need stamina anymore-you need blitz tickets. Not sure how that’s different. It’s like the car dealership telling me I don’t need cash anymore because I can buy with gold bars instead. Overdrive could’ve been good but instead it’s a who can make the higher power team and chuck bombs the fastest. That got boring after two days. I’m so utterly disappointed in this game I don’t even play and I’ve spent waaaay too much time playing this on the past- at least that has stopped. A sad end to what was a great franchise. I’m making like Craig David and #ImWalkingAway
So much potential.. obvious game scripts.
This game could be good if it didn’t pre-determine the outcome of PvP games before they’re played. I understand the argument they might make is, “The other team just has better players”, but no other player can make my player glitch so badly that the game is no longer fun. I made Cam Newton my Captain and he constantly throws the ball 20 yards over the receivers head, even if they’re open. If it is indeed one of the few times he doesn’t overthrow, the receiver drops the ball 8/10 times. It just isn’t fun. And, if y’all are making a joke about Cam's accuracy, it’s definitely at the expense of your game. I understand the game is supposed to get harder as you go along, but make it equally hard. Yes. I might play another, better team than my own; but I should be allowed to make plays against that team to try and win. Not have to watch my team completely forget how to play for a game. Also, you need to do something about the tapping to throw the ball to your receiver. A lot of times it doesn’t read the tap and there are some plays that you really can’t use because the WR you need to tap isn’t even on the screen (WR screen and bubble screen plays). Really just way more frustrating than fun. If you can put out the product you promote, maybe I’ll re-download. But this is far from what you say it is.
Used to be great
This game used to be absolutely amazing before the overdrive update, but right now it is trash. The ai is janky and the movements of literally every single player isn’t good. You have last updates really good players like in the 100 overall category feeling like they are barely 70 overalls. The focus on pvp is atrocious to those who are the casual gamers like myself who just want to test out their play styles on npc teams, I would give this game a four out of five if they still had season mode however they took that out along with everything that had made the game great. This year with the legacy events that I can use my old team it’s not even fun because it feels as if they are just like the team I have right now, just complete and utter trash. This is not okay. The reasoning behind giving it a two out of five is because the graphics are significantly better and the pvp is moderately fine. I would not recommend this game AT ALL and I am only holding out in case they decide to update the game and bring back everything that made this game great before. Edit: great so they brought back season mode. In the complete wrong way! I loved how it gave you a twist of new teams each season but this makes it utterly impossible for the newer players, good job on bringing back season mode but making it worse then everything on the dang game
EA has built a reputation over the past few years of being a very poor company who doesn’t care about its customers. I can almost assure you that most of these 5 star reviews are written by devs. That being said the game has been the exact same for the four years since its release and EA has made it a blatant pay to win title. Worse still is that it is more of a pay to have a chance to win. Their offerings are so lack luster that any sensible person would know to avoid their packs. You never get your moneys worth. They charge the same price as a full retail triple A title for a few meaningless cards. This has of course lead to coin buying from third parties and ban waves which also hit innocent members of the community without resolving the issue. They left behind tons of cheaters and the market now reflects Chinese coin prices rather than actual card rarity. EA banned my account after a dedicated 4 years of play without even having the professional courtesy to give me a proper reply. Rather I received an automated message and my case was “resolved”. They actively took steps this year to kill of the game. I have personally taken a full on boycott of all EA titles and products. Do yourself a huge favor and avoid the lie that this is a free to play game. It is a true mess that represents perfectly the state of affairs at Electronic Arts. AVOID THIS TITLE.
Should be called madden MasterCard
Either get your credit cards out now or don’t even bother downloading this.... it’s a great game well the concept is great anyway this year is the worst yet but it’s still good in concept but anyway this is more of a team building game than an actual football if you like opening packs and build a team it’s for you if you like playing real football games it’s not the have gotten rid of just about everything that is realistic football and replaced it with made up crap called overdrive where you can score 10 tds to your opponents 4 and still lose yeah Ik makes sense right so yeah it’s pretty much a team building game and one that if you want to be any good at you need to be ready to drop at least a few hundred dollars it’s always been that way but more so this year than ever it has been made into a total cash grab so much so even half the “program” players don’t even have events that go with them they are purely store based and must be payed for in real money and that’s what this game is so if that sounds good to you then you’ll love it if you want to play realistic football close the App Store save the few hundred you’d end up spending on this “free” phone game and go spend 50 on madden for a console you’ll have a real game for way less money
Banned For No Reason
I've actually enjoyed playing this game for the past couple seasons. However, after putting in 2 months' worth of work to build my team this year, I received a notice that my account was permanently banned. After looking up how to contact customer service on their website, I sent an email in the proper suggested format stating my case. I waited for about a week and a half and received nothing back. I decided to send a second email, and almost immediately received a response. According to the email, they had "thoroughly" investigated my case, and decided not to remove the ban. I had apparently committed a violation under the category of "Promote, encourage or take part in any activity involving hacking, cracking, phishing, taking advantage of exploits or cheats and/or distribution of counterfeit software and/or virtual currency/items." As much as I enjoy playing Madden Mobile. I am not nearly tech savvy or even pathetic enough to take the time to cheat on a phone game. EA was clearly too lazy to look into the mistake that they made with my account. Anyone who spends enough time playing this game knows there are blatant cheaters and can easily point them out. Maybe because I don't spend any real money on the game they could care less about my issue. I just wanted to warn people before they put in the time and effort
Glitchy Bugs Horrible
NFL mobile has really outdone itself this year I mean when you play the game it is so bad because it has countless bugs and various glitches like when you try to throw the ball at your teammate they will most likely not even try to get the ball like EA has not put that much effort in the game like nba live 19 it’s he same from last year just graphic updates for nfl mobile last year was better than this year ea fix your game cause it is so horrible no one can catch a freaking ball in this game and then how are you going to put someone up by 200 points in overdrive mode by just 1 mistake you made how mostly the game is over then this is why ea is going to have a bad year this year and 2k is going to have a better year like ea just don’t care cause live 19 is live 18 the same thing just without nick Howard and that’s sad at least 2k got a new storyline every year you guys have the same story every year no exaggeration either in nfl mobile there’s so many bugs it’s rediculus like when I throw the ball I expect someone to try and at least try to catch it not just keep on running and the glitch is so bad that another person just run pass my player and he’s on the other side of the pitch come on know say you put so much effort but really didn’t do anything ea fix your game.
If i could give no stars I would. There is NO SEASON MODE taking away season mode was a favorite to most people to play and also taking players off my team that have taken me a long time to collect and all the hard work for nothing that’s not okay. Graphics are good but it’s not worth restarting everybody profile and have to start with scratch with nothing to help get in return such as if you had an all elite team you should at least had the option too keep a third of which ones to have for the next season not just take away everything everybody has spent trying to get taken away for absolutely nothing including myself. We get it we love updates for graphics but it wasn’t worth starting over for a new season without getting something in return and for it to be glitchy. Live events isn’t the greatest place to earn quick coins and collectibles unless you go through every little thing to play and earn the reward. Please do all of us a favor and return some of our hard work that we have earned that’s all we ask for because some people spent actual money on the game to get these collectibles, player, etc.. And it would be nice to play our favorite and best players that we had in last season to play the new update.
Worst game ever
This game is not worth downloading. It is by far the worst Madden game ever!!! IF I COULD GIVE THIS GAME NO STARS I WOULD!!!! Let’s start off by saying that over drive is really garbage. I mean the amounts of “pressure” give you very limited chances of winning a game because they literally come one right after another for example you give up 135 points for not being able to rush for 12+ yards however the blocking is complete horrific. It’s like you’re trying to control the running back and a lineman at the exact same time. Also the touch mode is terrible because even when you’re clicking on the receiver the quarterback will hesitate to pass the ball (it’s not my phone I have a brand new iPhone X that works perfectly fine with every app on it). Even when you click on a receiver the q.b will sometimes pass it to a player you didn’t even choose (for example if I pass it to a receiver my q.b will toss the ball to my TE). Also, the packs option is very much useless. It’s way too much money to buy a basic pack that only gives you 3 players and honestly 2 silver players and 1 gold player is not worth 30k coins. This game is solely focused on users spending their real money just to get a good team. Will definitely uninstall the game is changes aren’t made.
They should have kept it the same
I didn’t download Madden Mobile for a state of the art experience. I already have Madden 19 on Xbox for that. I downloaded madden for it’s crappy graphics and easy to beat game modes. I came to win 64-0 in every game in season mode and to win the Super Bowl with ease. I came to earn Coins and Madden cash like it was nothing and build a 115 overall team. I came to screw around with my friends and see how many times we could glitch out the game. I came to play a crapp (crap app) because it was relaxing and easy and something to pass the time. Now I have to scavenge for players and pay to win (which I refuse to do)! And on top of that, I don’t have any of my previous data saved. And if we’re talking the new “improvements” It’s awkward to move in the pocket and to run the ball. It’s new game mode is terrible. And on top of all that. The game run like a 2005 World of Warcraft server. It’s crashed almost every time I log in and randomly deleted my score in overdrive when I was winning!!!!! Log story short, apps aren’t supposed to be experiences. They’re supposed to be fun, easy, and yes sometimes glitchy games to play on the go. Not this. Anything but this. So EA, you’ve already screwed enough things up, don’t keep digging your own grave
This update took the game in a horrible direction. The game now feels too fake and doesn’t focus on football anymore. The game used to be madden everyone loved where you drew cards and made a team from them and then played in either a season against bots or real players. Now there’s no season, you can’t play defense and anything you’ve had before is gone. This game in my opinion just took a dive off a cliff hoping to land safely but ultimately went splat. The funny thing is that they kept all the old reviews so it still makes them look like a good game and people are going to read these reviews thinking they’re downloading one thing but in reality it’s a whole other game. Should have kept the the game like it was and revamped the graphics and what not maybe add challenges or whatever but getting rid of what makes madden awesome to replace it with this is just a slap to the face for all the players out there that loved the old game. Be cautious when downloading this as it’s not what you will expect. If you’re a new player then perhaps you may like it but anyone who has ever played madden before is gonna think this is a joke. Should of released this as a desperate game or made this a mode. Bring back seasons, please don’t do this to your fans
Warning : EA is Taking Our Money
This is a warning to adults and parents. This game is designed for one reason. To make money. I mean droves of it. I got burned bad and have spent hundreds and hundreds of dollars “paying to win” and got hooked and it’s addictive and dangerous. If kids are asking their parents for credit cards or whatever to play it’s very very dangerous. The game screws you over too so you have to spend more money. It’s really obvious. Please be aware. The game is fantastic it really is and if played the right way it’s fun. The problem is it’s not fun if you get tackled before you can move and it order not have that happen you need to spend money. This is the most incredible idea videos games have ever had and it’s contributes to ruining my life. I’m lucky my wife saved me. This is a good old genuine F YOU to EA Sports and I mean it from the bottom of my heart. It’s absolutely stupid what they will give you in packs if you pay money and what you need to pay for a couple of cards to flip over is unbelievable awful. They are scamming people worse than anyone in the world is scamming people but people think it’s cool because it looks flashy. This is a dangerous problem . Stay away .
Worst Game play by far!!!!!
I have been on MM for two years now and each year it keeps getting worse in terms of game play! This year by far has been the worst. There is no use in getting game plans as they do not work even when the counter is 100% teams are still getting big chunks of yardage. I spent The 2.5 million coins on game plans and still teams that their ovr’s are lower than mine run all over my defense like nothing when the play is even countered at 100%. Another big problem this game has is dropped wide open passes! I know that sometimes a player will drop a wide open pass, but this app takes it to another level with dropped passes. I was playing Head to Head game and in 3 drives, I had 12 dropped passes! Two of those dropped passes was on consecutive plays by the same receiver. Overall this game gets very frustrating cause it glitches so bad that computer controlling the defense makes players do things that are impossible to do. EA Sports has had many complaints about the game play that they just laugh at you and say we are trying to work on the problems! Which is not true like I said they laugh at you when asking about problems with game play, because people keep pumping money into this app for crappy game play.
A Completely Beautiful Mess
Madden Overdrive paints a pretty picture with new graphics and a new game mode... that they entirely messed up. I’ve played their mobile version of this game every year, even spent a little money, and I am thoroughly disappointed. The wide receivers play the ball like corner backs and the corner backs play it like wide receivers. I have never seen this many interceptions in one on one coverage. The 91 overall Cris Carter plays like a 75, the lag is insanely bad and you lose the overdrive game if you disconnect before it even loads. This years variation makes the pay to win scenario even worse with the new power feature. If you have a higher overall team you are guaranteed a victory as it gives even more overalls to the opposing line up if your power is higher than your opponents. At this stage in the game that means that no money spent people simply can’t win. Another terrible issue is elite quarterback inaccuracy. There are far to many under-thrown and overthrown balls from elite QBs. I could go on and on but I’ll end it here, it’s improvements will be worth it if they fix these issues, if not... it is not worth the download. I do hope EA sees these criticisms and fixes them very soon.
Like it but glitches
I really like this game and I'm actually good at it but ever since the game launched there is this one glitch that drives me crazy and for some reason never has been fixed. It happens a-lot and i actually quit the game for a whole year because it kept driving me insane and since i returned i have noticed it still hasn't been fixed and i lose a lot of overdrive matches because of it. The glitch is when i click to throw to someone who is wide open with nobody covering him and then when i click to throw to him it throws to someone with more than one guy covering them and almost always resulting in an interception or completely behind the line of scrimmage resulting in a loss of yards every time. Ever since i got Tom Brady he tends to want to throw an interception every other play. Doesn't even throw it close to the receivers and its both Tom Brady players i have that do it ( 91 ovr and Captain ) my guys are wide open a lot and he some how always manages to screw it up. I want to know how the best quarter back in the nfl does that. All my elite players drop the ball every time when they are wide open if Brady can manage to get the ball to them. EA needs to fix these but i doubt they will
Ik this isn't getting to reviews but listen up. With this whole domination thing, you guys are idiots and must be begging for money because you removed the "shut out opponent" event and now it's only "make a comeback" because you are too afraid of people getting gronk early. Which is funny because now 50,000+ have 3 gronks because you were able to get him by trading in a bronze trophy yesterday. The game is already corrupt. P.s for the people who didn't get gronk you won't now because of the domination being 95 ovr teams. And then on top of it, you need to wait at least 7 seconds to throw the ball away. The boys don't. And they can scramble too. Like, are you serious? AND you should have people enter a message that has blurred letters or something because that bots are insane. There is no such thing as sniping in this game. Even pro YouTubers are complaining. This game is even worse than the old season. Fix it EA, because you are LAZY and only care about people's money. You disgust me. Edit for madden 17-18: Yes it's madden time again. This game is much better than the previous ones, but the issue is crashing. Please fix the crashing issue! I was in a head to head game and lost because the game crashed and automatically forfeited me. Please fix this!
It keeps getting worse...
The game play keeps getting worse each year, especially head to head and lvl matches. A lot of the physics are just off - kickoffs that hit the ground and bounce backward, defenders that sack the QB or deflect/intercept a pass from 3-5 yards away from the offensive player, and pass deflections that fly 10 yards into the hands of waiting defenders. Those have been standing issues since the beginning. My favorite additions this year have been the defenders deflecting passes if they’re 3-5 yards from the receiver when the ball arrives and the extreme increase in dropped passes. In 2 drives, I had no fewer than 5 drops by wide open receivers rated no worse than 85. Almost seems like Madden decides who it wants to win each matchup ahead of time and adjusts the play accordingly, so that even if all the right decisions are made, you still get shut out. That said, the redeeming quality of head to head is that you are matched up against active players and can play all 3 drives without having to wait for your opponent to play. If only we could open multiple packs at once after having to win a live event at least 10 times to have a chance at anything useful...
Don’t believe the good reviews, they are for past versions
I have been playing madden mobile for years now (since 2015), and while past versions have been amazing and fun, this latest installment, called overdrive, is not great. Now, the part of the old games that I always hated was H2H mode, and they finally did something about that by putting in this overdrive mode. Which I like when it works! I have been playing the new version for 3 days now and of the 20 or so overdrive matches I have played I have lost connection to their servers around 8, which counts as a loss... And this server connection issue isn’t just in that mode, while playing live events and even just navigating around in the game... The constant connection issues is driving me crazy!!! As for the rest of the game, if they had just replaced H2H mode with overdrive, and didn’t have all of these connection issues I would have given this game a 5 star rating. But they have made everything revolve around overdrive, and have made all events so difficult that the game is just not fun anymore... don’t bother downloading at this point, until they put out a significant update to fix all of this.
I was an original player since Madden Mobile the better version everyone liked instead of overdrive.I have a lot of complaints about this game.1. It always says along the lines of NETWORK TIMED OUT then I go to another game and it’s perfectly fine you just made overdrive wrong by a lot.2. I “lose connection” and I’m on a challenge it makes me pay for it again restarts all my progress and then I lose and have to pay to redo it.3. You removed your whole juking system if you do the stuff in Madden Mobile in overdrive for juking you’d just get tackled by a person from behind or the person your trying to juke because they have some sort of targeting system so they can’t be juked basically.4. Also I can’t find a setting to get rid of all your music playing which can get very very annoying just like I “lost connection” 5. Also the lag is just unbearable I can’t even move a yard before the lag stops me. This is becoming the worst game you could possibly get like fortnite doesn’t crash as much what are you doing.!!! I liked Madden Mobile more by a lot because it never I mean never had any of these problems such as “losing connection” or not being able to juke. :( I am very disappointed.
Worst Update In Gaming History
Let me start out by saying that I’ve really enjoyed playing Madden Mobile the last several years and when I heard here was a new update this year that wound bring the graphics to a whole new level I was pumped! But then I downloaded it and played it for the first time on the release date and - while the graphics look awesome - I am still stunned that EA has managed to completely destroy one of the best sports gaming apps in the history of mobile. Madden Overdrive is a complete train wreck. There’s no other way to spin this. They’ve completely sucked all the joy out of the game. I can’t play it for more than 10-15 minutes because it’s taken boring to an all-time low. I gave it another try today after not playing for well over a month. But nothing’s changed and I’m about to uninstall it from my phone and go back to the game I’ve been playing instead: MLB Tap Sports Baseball 2018. It has some issues of its own to iron out but the bottom line is its fun. Fun. It’s also a serous cash cow for the developer, Glu, but it succeeds on the most basic levels because it’s fun and challenging. Maybe EA will remember that someday, but it may be too late by that point to save it. Worst. Update. Ever.
Fun but EA is a JOKE!!!
The game can be very fun don’t get me wrong but EA has proven to the community that Money is all they care about. Not fair play! This game is much more limited than in years past and is even further focused on spending money and micro transactions. I understand it’s a business but they could at least have decent customer service for the issue they have if they are gonna be so money driven. Their customer service is literally the worst you will find in all the world. Game has a ton of gameplay flaws and EA has failed to release an update to fix them. QB immediately throws the ball to the left as soon as its snapped. AI is off. Receivers slow to 10 speed as soon as they catch the ball and with the info coming out about EA using a dynamic difficulty adjustments to make sure you actually lose/win based on your record. This company has really showed their true colors over the last 2 years and will continue losing loyal fans who have helped create such a huge following for years. I just wish the NFL could take away their exclusive licensing agreement and give it to a company who is actually worthy of it. EA is NOT!!!
EA doesn't care about customers, just money.
I've been playing this game since it came out two years ago. I would not recommend this game. At one point, madden mobile crashed literally every time I used it. It could be a few minutes in to a game or as soon as I open the app up. Issues like that happen constantly and take weeks to resolve. EA sports doesn't care about how much their customer appreciates this game, just that the game is reaching the largest audience possible. That way they can make the most money as possible. There customer service department is extremely rude, unhelpful and not based in America so they know nothing about the game. After all this inconvenience, how does EA repay their loyal gamers? With nothing. At least in the past they would throw in a free pro pack. Recently, a tremendous number of players were unfairly targeted. The company stole their coin from them and prevented them from buying and selling on the auction house. This issue is still not resolved after weeks. I wish EA would read this and care enough to do something about it. Knowing this company however, I'm sure even if they did read this, they wouldn't care. Unless I sent them a check that is.
Good game but used to be better
I used to Love this game, but not so much anymore. Still a good game but somewhere along the way it lost two of its most important aspects of the game. First, sets. Getting rid of sets made NO sense at all. The only thing you can do with excess players now, is trade them in for training points, which all you can do with is train players(which I don’t mind) or trade them in for more crappy excess players, unless you spend a crazy amount of points. I just don’t see what the game added by getting rid of sets. Second, a real season. Before, you had a schedule and played ai created teams, which I liked and you could actually see your progression. Now they still have a “season” but it’s really just a big live event. You still play ai created teams, but there isn’t a schedule, which isn’t so bad, but it resets twice a month. So unless you commit crazy time to it, your not going to get anywhere and the reward? More crappy excess players and the cycle starts again. A ok game and has added some things I don’t mind ( I really loved the draft tournament) but it could get better by taking a few steps back.
Madden has always been fun. There have been occasional glitches in the game, or exploits that have made the game unfortunately very easy to ‘win’, and going into madden mobile 2019, I had high hopes. On the offensive side of the ball, Ea has done a fantastic job of fixing glitches, but in their attempt at making the game harder, they accidentally made corners overpowered. Delving into replay footage, if one watches a cornerback try to make up yardage on a receiver, they’ll notice how that corner immediately speeds up and mostly makes a play on the ball. (For reference, your defensive corner will not speed up, meaning any deep shot attempted by the cpu will 95% of the time be caught by the opposing receiver.) Besides this though, offense is fine. Defense however, is frankly trash. Again going into replay footage, we see how there are consistently blown coverages by your linebackers not being ushered by you. Also, the cornerback problem I’ll dub as ‘cornergate’ also exists. Lastly, the CPU’s receivers are guaranteed faster then yours. I tested all of my thoughts with a 65 overall team against the 65 overall New York jets. I’d love to see madden improve by buffing defense and nerfing the cpu.
Madden mobile is ruined
What a down grade. The point of madden mobile was to kill time and not be taken too seriously. This game is 10x as difficult. Opposing teams complete every pass and get 5-10 rushing yards every play, your passing plays are 50/50, either one guy is open and you get decent yardage or nobody is open and you’re forced to throw an interception. You can no longer choose whether to truck, juke, or spin, the game chooses for you and almost always gets it wrong. Opposing players refuse to go down and can shake 3-4 tackles in a single play, while your player will trip over nothing and go down or fall down from running into your own player. Sets are gone bc they were “too confusing” and they were replaced with some system that has a different currency for every type of challenge, yeah because that’s far less confusing. Simple events are harder, took me 6 tries just to get 30 yards in 5 plays. I tried 9 times to stop my opponent from making 2 completions before I gave up. Ridiculously hard and confusing, tackling physics are all messed up like in madden 19 too. I’ve played madden mobile for 4 years, and they really ruined it this time.
Overdrive is a bust. Please change it next year
I love madden mobile and would play it for a few years now, and after this year I’ve stopped playing and do not plan on coming back until overdrive is out of the question. The fun has been taken out. I enjoy the real time games but it does not always run very smooth. I also do not like how many aspects of previous maddens have been taken away. Many problems I have found involve matchmaking pairing people with unfair teams, defense being completely and ridiculously too strong even when they are significantly worse than the opposing offense, and one of the things I have a problem with personally are the price of packs and the odds of pulling something good. It seems like the only way to get a good thing out of packs are to buy the limited time packs with money out of your pockets and that frustrates me personally because I do not like constantly keeping the same players on my team. Anyways, I can’t give them a 1 star because I still like some things about madden. I just hope that they see that madden overdrive is not the right path for the future.
Update: Yeah, still garbage
I was gonna wait until this end of the NFL season to upstate my review, but I think I've seen enough. This year, Madden Mobile got what was in my opinion a game improving update. I was very impressed with the new version, season mode was more fun, leveling players was an enjoyable mechanic, and what seemed to be easier access to elites was awesome. I was very ready to update my review to four stars, but then the issue of the coin market happened. It should be said that I don't spend any money on this game, and that I don't believe I ever will. This is especially true seeing the outrageous prices of the in game currency. However, this never bothered me much. People were buying it, good for EA. But then people started buying coins illegally for much better value, and EA's reaction to this is mind-numbingly idiotic. They first put a limit on pro packs, one of the best ways of gaining money. This didn't bother me too much, but what happened next is ridiculous. EA went on a banning spree, banning accounts that didn't even break rules. They are trying to fix an issue by getting rid of their audience, and it's the stupidest decision they could've made. I'm disappointed.
I’ve been playing madden since it came out. And this has to be the worst madden mobile game I ever played. Especially the overdrive. I’m always matched up against team who are twice as better than mine. For example, if I have a 600 team power I’m usually matched up against team with 900 or over team power. This is totally unfair because no matter how hard you try the other team will end up scoring more points then you. The mechanics in this game is HORRIBLE. The opposing team ALWAYS grabs my receivers and sometimes they will even climb on my receivers preventing them to catch the ball. For some reason almost all the players in the opposing team has 99 speed. A DT who was 5 yards away from my 87 Antonio Brown somehow manages to run and catch up to my player. There are so many times I’ve rage quit because of horrible gameplay and mechanics. Also, madden overdrive is completely PAY TO WIN. The live events are pathetic. You can barely get one good player off a week of playing the event. There aren’t enough packs to buy by using coins and there aren’t enough ways to get coins in the game now. As much as I play madden and I loved this game before. I’m really disappointed.
This is it for me
They have made this game worse each season. I almost bolted last season because you basically had to spend some serious money to succeed, but stuck around. Thought it couldn’t get worse, but it has. Now you still need to spend money in all these complicated goals and programs, but having better players and a higher “power” rating actually means nothing! Their “Overdrive” event is central to game play and getting opportunities to get better players. But there isn’t any correlation between the level of your team and having any advantage over lesser teams the higher you climb in the rankings. When you get higher up, you will get destroyed more and more by significantly lesser teams. And I haven’t even gotten to the glitches that haven’t been worked out a month later: like throwing the ball to receivers nowhere near where you pressed on the screen and other sensitivity issues, not following basic football rules like forward progression and pass interference, and not crediting you with achievements for gaining a certain number of yards or more despite getting the minimum number of yards required. DONT GET SUCKED IN, YOU WILL BE DISAPPOINTED!!!!
So last years game the rewards for the super grind achievements were ok. I honestly think they could have been a little better, but this year is absolutely awful. I mean 2,000 coins for 10,000 Points!!!! That's outrageous. The amount of time it would take to get that many points - you probably could have made well over 2,000 coins from just playing the game. And it's not only that achievement. If you get a team with an overall of 99 (which isn't possible right now) you still get 2,000 coins. Please up the rewards so those who actually grind the game are rewarded appropriately. Another problem is the crazy long tutorial. I'm sure people who just started playing the series are already got bored and probably not gonna touch the game again. The graphics are intensive and slow the game. Next is interface it's beyond complicated and requires so much digging to get place to place. Last years was by far the best in my eyes. It was super simple to get around and provided access to everything from the slide menu. Please improve the game. It feels as if it DEVOLVED
The graphics are awesome but the fun has been taken out of the game and the opposing players are overpowered and the game is now to difficult to play. The game is not fun anymore and I will be deleting my acct. after I post this. You have taken the fun out of the game and I’m telling you this so you can evaluate weather the advice your getting on game concept from the developers is where your focus should be. I have lost almost my entire league because they don’t want to play the game, and I have had more than 90 people come and then quit because they don’t like where the game is headed. If your intent is to make money from the game by making it impossible to get anywhere except by paying to play your in the right ballpark but if you’ll lose all your faithful by taking the fun out of the game. I have 20 left in my league and they are all quiting today. Thanks for all the fun I’ve had playing your game, but it’s time to go I hope this helps in further research on why people like to play your game. Maybe the research guys should actually play the game so they can get an idea on what makes it fun and challenging. Signing off SSG Michael Hagberg U.S. ARMY
Again I'm rating this low because it's not realistic. Throw a pass and 90% of the time it will be intercepted! Lower levels play as good as higher levels. Don't spend any money on this game because you'll play as good as the ones who pour money into it. Don't try to fill sets honestly because the game will give you some low value trophy or 100 coin after beating a challenge. Pathetic! This is a week later, I was wrong about percentage of interceptions, 90% way too low more like 99% in head to head games! New week and same ol crap! Throwback blitz pack 10 x and no blitz pack just silver trophies! Rip off! Do not spend any money on this game! Play is fun, as long as you don't try to pass or gain items from challenges! Pathetic! "Earn a chance" that's carnival talk for better luck next time! "Sucker born every day" Well new day same c.r.a.p! Earned another level, stamina refill 100%, NOT! Had 23 before new level reward, had 23 after! Not 100%, this is not first time! Guys contact these crooks and get them to give as NO LONGER WILL I SUPPORT GAME OR LEAGUE THAT DOESNT RESPECT ME AND ALL VETERANS OF THE USA! IM DELETING APP OFF OF ALL DEVICES AND PASSING SAME ALONG TO MY KIDS AND GRANDKIDS AND ALL WHO WILL LISTEN! NFL IS DEAD!
When I play head to head matches I can't juke truck or spin over anyone It makes it hard to maneuver players also when playing the games pairs you up with higher overall players which I find unfair that gives the opponents the advantage also I don't understand the cool down after scrambling it doesn't make any sense in desperate times that people need to scramble you can't because it takes 5 seconds AND the next play to be used again also make catching the ball more realistic some of the throws would be on point but they will still miss the throw it's really irritating that your trying to get a higher tier on a tournament or in head to head but something always hinders you from doing so and lastly can you please do something with the offensive lines because when a defensive player tries to get to the quarterback it seems like they give up and stop blocking when it's not even like they did a swim move or something which ultimately leads to you being sacked and losing 5-15 yards on a crucial play or drive thanks and sincerely TEC
This game’s a waste! Pushes in app purchases! Will constantly crash until you so! Don’t waste money on this games. There’s quick ways to build your team up without making any in app purchases. Build your team through events, overdrive and auctions by bidding for low 70s players first. Slowly stack your team with all low 70s in all positions. Then go back to playing events and overdrive to build your money and winning packs. Then start bidding for mid 70s-high 70s. Slowly post all your low 70s players to auctions. Make sure to check the average amount your player is bidding/buy now is going for and post that player for auction around that price. If you continue this process your overall should be in the mid to high 80s. And will gradually keep moving up. Remember doing events and playing overdrive helps out a lot. I’m telling you though, you will start to see the this app act different the more you play and improve and not make any purchases. It will crash more often and cause you to lose against teams not worthy of sharing the same field with you. Hopefully whoever plays have better luck than me !
Nice money pit, EA.
This game is the dung of existance. I was smart and did not spend my money on this money-hoarding trash. I'm surprised EA spent the extra money to make this game, considering that money is all they want. Be intelligent. Don't fall for EA's tricks and lies. You get one stamina per minute. You have to wait an hour to get enough stamina to do an event. The events presented are absolute garbage and are hardly possible. Certain moving parts of the field slow you down when you walk on them? That’s totally how football works. The only way to get good players is to give your cash to the Fourth Reich called EA and watch them make another cancerous game out of your cash. I have spent hours upon hours on this game. I had an 86 overall last season, all elite players. I got them by grinding. Grind for hours or spend your money, or waste your life waiting for your stamina to recharge because EA has completely run out of ideas and has decided to use the process of mentally manipulating their players by giving an energy system so that one of your defected brain cells actually cares that this tumor of a game is taking up part of your device. EA is over.
New season degraded game
The new season update unleashed a new game mode, “Overdrive”, which quite bluntly feels broken. Its a real-time, highly competitive 1v1 game mode that really pushes the necessity of EA’s pay-to-win model, by giving extra bonuses to teams that already have higher stats. Beyond that, they put in a mechanic called “pressure” that requires the player to do a little challenge, and if the player fails, their opponent gets points. Too many times have I been told to do a passing play after I have already selected a run play, or a PA pass after I have selected a short pass, etc. Too many times have I been told to get a run play of 3+ yards when I’m 2 yards from the endzone. It’s nonsensical and unrealistic to even attempt to pass all of these “pressure” challenges, when some of them are straight up impossible. Lastly, matchmaking in this competitive game mode is obscene. I’m not even in the top 100,000 of players, yet i’ve been matched against players in the top 10,000. Even in the top 1,000. The difference in team strength is astounding. Why even bother playing the Overdrive mode? EA built the entire game around that one broken mode.
Please give us back Madden Mobile
Not happy with the changes and all kinds of issues with this version. It seems the graphics became more important than the game play.. but hey the grass stains look great on the players. Now if I could only get the defensive player I choose to go where I want instead of the d assignment he is assigned. Sometimes the HB chooses its own path instead of going where you tell him. You can’t play through a season, or win a Super Bowl. Sure you can play a full game in live events if you want to kick off in the first and third quarter IF the app doesn’t lock up zoomed in a piece of the stadium. Oh and start an overdrive match and wonder what is going on as you wait for a minute before the countdown starts to begin play. Set completion is highly confusing the way it is set up now. Passing is an absolute joke.. if you can even do it before you get sacked because your qb can’t hardly move to scramble around the pocket.. he sticks like he’s magnetized. So you can see I’m thrilled with the chance. First update you have needs to be to go back to madden mobile.
Matchmaking and internet problems
Okay let me start with this is a great game and I’ve played since season 2 and loved it until now, no sets? No regular season? Wierd level elites? What happened? Matchmaking is killing the game further. In blitz tournaments I always face a crazy player with a +5 overall. I can easily take a +1 overall but I get an OP enemy and get swept. also I get so many network timeouts during matches. Why should internet dictate who wins?!? I’m in shock of how bad they ruined the game. I love season 2, season 3 was bad but now unacceptable and then there is now. I consider this “EA’s first major failure.” How in the world did you think it was good to take away our game. Plz fix it before it’s too late. The first day overdrive came out I was so excited then in the first 5 mins I was shocked in how bad it was. I even thought it was going to go back under matainence for a few days to fix it. I just want madden the way it was before when it was fun and I enjoyed spending money on that one, overdrive heck no. Plz EA I’m speaking here for thousands of players who want our game back to glory.
Problems that still haven't been fixed throughout the entire madden mobile game
I've played madden mobile Since the beginning and yet EA still fails to fix easy problems. First the matchmaking in this game is horrendous. You could be could be 20 levels lower than your opponent but I guess that seems like a good matchup to them. Second their pay to win game has become even more pay to win because you basically can buy packs anymore unless you plan on stealing your parents wallet or wasting all of you'r own saved money to buy one pack for $5. Finally they ruined the sets you were able to complete that gave people all their money in the game. They took away one of the most fun ways to enjoy the game and put in some crappy set choices that are almost impossible to do unless of course you spent your real hardworking money. The gameplay as well needs some work as a 99 speed wide receiver can't outrun a 75 speed defensive back but EA made that work somehow... EA has worked hard to make this game even worse than before because they are obsessed with money and don't care about their madden community.
Negative Reviews in Most Recent
not sure yet
Used to be fun, back in like 2015 when it was hard it was fun, (aka when it was just madden mobile)
it kicks me out everytime....this needs to be fixed ASAP!!! your game sucks ea
Another game that’s rigged to try to make you spend money. The previous iteration of the game from like two years ago you could make a lot of trades and work your way around the fact they start you with terrible players. Well after redownloading the new version of the game I see that they’ve sured up that loop hole. Want a couple of good players, on your team— gotta buy them. Oh and then there’s he buy the limited super hero pack that your players turn into automatic bums after then promption expiration period. At least start the game off with the correct rosters or even a beginning draft. Not just bum-Ize the team because you picked it. I mean an entire team without one superstar to start is unrealistic, your star player starting will be 70 ovr. The same issues as previous version. The computer knows what plays you call. For instance if you use field goal defense as a blitz for a run the computer calls audible but if you use field goal formation but the one that tells your team to play zone(fake field goal defense) the computer will still run the ball. Tried this multiple time in multiple games just to see result. The field goal defense should trigger an audible on a first down always but the computer obviously knows when your going to break up into a zone and feels comfortable running. Which also is apparent that the computer pretty much will have the right defense for any play you run semi-often. The only weakness when playing a more talented computer team is to randomize as much as possible your play calling. The more random and less used the play will almost always be successful in hilarious proportions. The game tries to be pretend that cpu is gaining intelligence as you play but it’s actually just pretending not to know your plays when you call random but gives it self away the moment you use any particular play too often. Once you’ve acquired a decent team the whole game becomes a joke as it’s ridiculously easy— As it is anytime your playing a team of similar strength. Want impossible game face harder opponent, want easy game face lesser opponent. Want a challenging but sometimes winnable game, well there is none. It’s one way or the other.
SCORING IS WAY OFF FOR WINNER
I just played against the Dallas Cowboys and spectacularly lost with a score of 618 to 357! Every single time I made a TD, the Cowboys got a HUGE post in score points! I’ve only been playing for days, but I’m pretty sure that this is SO wrong! I WON THE GAME AND IT WASN’T EVEN CLOSE!
I can’t even control the players
This game is awful
The reason I rated this game 1 star is not because I’m a hater because I was winning in overdrive mode by 237 points then it says I got disconnected from my internet the game ended and I still won by 97 points but it said I got disconnected so I lost and got demoted.
So I was playing and I was just about to block a fg and it teleported to a other player fix it
At least once a day I’ll be in the middle of a game and the app shuts down and I have to reconnect my account through Facebook in order to play again. I get it’s free but its almost unplayable when you spend all that time going through a game only for it to not count for anything.
FIX THE GAME
Look madden I have been playing since von Miller was on the front of the app but you guys ruined the entire game and the graphics bring the old madden mobile back plz plz plz I and many others would appreciate this plus you look on YouTube and there is no madden mobile video and if there are then they just open packs PLZ FIX THE GAME
Unrealistic matchups , pay to play that allows opponents to score on every play and we won’t even get into the blatant interfering by the AI Still trying to fathom how someone score 500 points in a span of 30 seconds
I used to play madden mobile all of the time.. I loved it! It was a while however since I touched the game. I’m on a road trip for 10 hours so I decided to give it a try again. Playing this ‘new’ version of madden mobile was terrible. I don’t know what has happened to the game but all I know is I will never, NEVER re-download/play this game again.
Horrible app. Purchases never go thru.
Do not get this app. I have tried to purchase madden cash and I never get the cash. I make the purchase and the transaction goes thru and the Madden cash never is put in. I call the app and they say it is iTunes fault. iTunes says it is the apps fault. Don't bother with this crappy game. The is a waste of time and money.
Great, so long as you keep your power lower.
Bought some packs like an idiot and now the game play is terrible. Losing overdrives like crazy. It’s not a bad game though so long as you keep your power relatively low...below 1000. Resist the temptation to build your power to high if you want to enjoy the game.
What a joke
Every time I play I get cheated, EA Sports cheats the game players!!!! These people are the lowest of the low. Stop stealing people’s time and money
The old madden was way better it was more of an actual madden game or that’s how I felt
When I get the ball and at end of quarter I have to kick off .And pass interference call are ridicules . Finally out of bounds are also off the charts!!!!!!
Kind of annoying
I have liked playing this game overall. Sometimes it can be a bit irritating. I get matched up against opponents over 1,000 points. I have a little over 500 points. Can you change it so I am matched up with opponents that have around the same amount of points as me?
This game has a major issue
The name of the game is overdrive and so you would think it would be an enjoyable fair experience however it’s not. The majority of the time you are paired with people ridiculously above your rank or below. Then there’s the issue with the “pressure”. This ruins anyone’s game because star challenges are redixulous along with the opponents reward for you failing. In the blitz tournaments it make winning near impossible when you are faced with pressure plays every two to three plays and your opponent doesn’t get a single one. EA, Fox your garbage game with the money your making from having a pay to win game.
Ea fix your game bring back season and let People go against their own rating this game is horrible
Put seasons back in
16 and 17 was the best in my opinion this game is ridiculous in the mechanics
I hate EA SPORTS
My 101 overall Tyreek hill fumbled on a 70 yard catch by the 75 overall bills
Glitchy and just trash now
I sacked the quarterback and the football when floating to the runningback
The game won’t load
I have downloaded this game multiple times on my iPhone se, and each time it won’t let me get on. As soon as the game loads up it kicks me out, I don’t know why
Yells matchmaking need improvements 👌
Fix bug or network
I love madden finally got use to the changes but now I’m wondering why stats are stuck every time play the new event Team of the year nothing changes not money badges the only thing the changes is what you earn from the 2 events you play the get badges for the other events on top of that when it was working I got 2 elites ad they never showed up ... if y’all could fix this that would be great and bring back the madden cash wheel there are a lot of poor kids playing this game and can’t afford a opportunity to get better players because they can’t afford to ...let alone even the thought of spending what EA wants for a packet just t get some none guaranteed players is just un real .. thanks. #BringMoneyWheelBack #fixTeamOfYearBug
This game was 1000x better before the update that changed the whole look of the game.... Madden mobile was the best until this update
Long time player, worse year
I honestly think that this year was bad. I mean, they got rid of season battles, camps, the worst part, the stars, it was really bad how they added good player both there card and superstar, what I would what to see something new, injures. Like if you have two fullbacks, one of them get hit hard, the others full back can play. I honestly think I have seen better years then this year. I really hope they improve next year
This game gay
This game is pretty bad. If you want to get good you have to pay for stuff. And you’re always playing people over two times better than you so you really have no chance at winning and getting game stuff
Madden 16 mobile
First of all, madden 16 was way better. What’s this Overdrive crap. I decided to buy the 30 starter pack and never recived my items and very upset take such a lob. Time for them to reply on support
Worst. Game. Ever.
Terrible in every aspect, made by a bunch of EA rEAtards... You can’t throw passes, bc everything gets intercepted, and that’s when the QB actually throws the ball instead of the usual just standing around waiting to get sacked. Oh, and don’t expect your offensive linemen to block anyone; they instead just stand around and watch defenders blow past them to tackle you, that is if your own team isn’t tackling you first. And their “Overdrive” gameplay is the worst aspect of the entire game - so many real-life living players quitting, that those EA rEAtards have started creating fake accounts and computerized teams to play against... and unfair opponent matchups who are FAR BETTER than your own rating - so you get to enjoy being annihilated by hundreds of points... sound like fun? Then enjoy - otherwise, stay the hell away, for your own sanity’s (& wallet’s!) sake ... P. S. What’s with the fake reviews on here?? Submitted by EA rEAtards, I’m sure... oh, & the SUPER-outdated ones, from last year and beyond...?? Be smart & discerning when reading thru these reviews, is all I can say to that... P. A. T. H. E. T. I. C., you EA rEAtards ...
SOME THINGS I’D LIKE TO SEE IN THE FUTURE
I really want to see madden mobile
Trash trash trash trash trash!!!!!!!! No consistency to this game. Uneven matchups.
What a disappointment
Been feeding this platform my guac for years. This version is cool but the crashes the loses (forfeited games) when you were just trying to start one (never even played) and the new SKY high prices seem to be wasting time and $$$.
Madden 2018-19 is awful
All of the other maddens were great until this overdrive nonsense. This years madden is completely awful and I would not recommend to anyone. Need to go back to the old game
Great game! But glitches are getting to much
I love this game, no but lately there has been so many glitches. My qb keep running into the line and falling! It’s so annoying!
This is the barest game I have ever played in my entire life ea. Fix your game please because I had three seconds on the clock and you guys did not let my hick the ball.so that is my reason so please fix your game.😡
CAN I HAVE MY ACCOUNT BACK I SPENT SO MUCH MONEY OR ELSE I CALL POLICE
Overdrive is trash
I have been playing Since 2016 and loved the game from then till now and here’s why: First: you guys took out the best part season mode and think you can replace it with some multiplayer where I can’t even play on defense Second: you guys messed up the live event system I miss the old map where you could pick your live event and now the live events are just straight up stupid Third: the coin system in this game is ABSOLUTELY TRASH it is so hard to come by coins and that makes the auction (were I used to get ALL my elite players from) not useable. So ea I’m not gonna play your bad game until you fix it
Old is better
Me and my friends think that just plane old madden mobile is way better than madden overdrive because like NBA LIVE is not like the overdrive so please bring the freaking season back to madden please...look at this and think real hard and also you can get better players easier.
Please fix this disaster of an app .......UPDATE..............2-12-19..................UPDATE.................. It’s still crashing which cost me 11 straight games in overdrive and all of my tickets in Tournament blitz so i have to ask you this question.WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO FIX YOUR APP? I’m getting real sick and tired of having to sign back into the game 50 billion times..Fix this app already.
Matching system needs fixed
Whenever I play any multiplayer game mode I’m always facing someone that is a lot better than me and I can’t win any matches. This mostly happens with rank or blitz tournaments.
It looks like your staging it
I looks like your trying to demote me on purpose and my opponents always get captain bonuses it I don’t! I didn’t get it one time this year please update the game this is not fair!!!
Will EA ever listen to us?
Please fix this game
First off please make copy and paste the simple, fun template from madden 16 or 15. That was when the game was fun to grind and open sets such as the large quicksell (with one quicksell from 1,000 to 1,000,000) along with gathering auctionable collectibles for sets. Keep the improved gameplay though. Also please make the auction house great again. The bot makes it impossible to have fun on this game. If you don’t want sold coins just ban people who have suspicious purchases. Please fix this game.
I miss the old madden mobile
Go back to the OG days of Madden Mobile. It was fine when you just came out with new players every season. I miss the old season mode and the old challenge rewards. I don’t like having to level up players I just like getting the new ones. Go back to the OG madden mobile days. PLEASE!
This game wouldn’t know what balanced is if it slapped them in the face. All it wants you to do it pay for all there in app purchases and everything you do you need to have a super good team to do it. I recommend never downloading this game just to help you for your sanity and future.
Most confusing madden game yet
I’ve been playing madden mobile since 2015 and I always loved it but this game is by far the worst out of all of them. I can’t even figure out how to play it or what is going on. EA is doing way too much with this game in my opinion and I hope they can go back to their roots next year.
Laggy trash game that makes no sense. Pass to wrong player all the time. Players run around players they are supposed to block.
