They really improved the defensive AI in this version of Madden, and people have been saying the general gameplay is improved.
Take your team all the way in Madden NFL 17 and put yourself at the center of your team’s Championship run in Franchise mode, delivering all-new ways to play and more decisions to make. Driven by the most balanced gameplay yet, the deepest commentary in Madden NFL franchise history, along with fun and fresh ways to play modes such as Ultimate Team and Draft Champions, Madden NFL 17 is the most complete Madden…ever.
GAMEPLAY: Ball-Carrier Feedback System: New prompts and path assist help identify defensive threats and recommend special moves to elude any defender.
Pass & Rush Counters: Simplify play-calling on defense. Think you know what your opponent is going to do, but don’t know the defensive formation to stop it? Decide to defend the pass or run and let your defense do the rest. Featuring the most realistic defensive AI to date, grounded in current NFL strategies, all-new “Gap Play” puts your defenders in the box, in position to stop the run up the middle, while your zone defense delivers on pass coverage.
Special Teams: Welcome the excitement of special teams back to Madden NFL. The ability to ice the kicker matches the challenge in today’s critical field goal attempts, while new elements of risk and reward through trick plays and blocked kicks can now change the outcome of any game in one play.
Madden NFL 17 was priced at $60 at release, so this is a significant price drop.
