As for the rest of the game, it's a dud. I don't play mut so I can't speak to that, but I love franchise mode, however EA pretty much lied about that modes improvements, all of the stuff people complained about that they said they fixed, 95% of it is still there, and now there's a new problem, players retire early, without warning. How hard would it be to have a warning of player retirement? Or to be able to adjust contracts so the bulk of it isn't in the last few years? There's no hold outs either. And trades, despite EA saying they'd be harder and more realistic, it seems like they're actually easier and you can still only trade three players/picks at a time. Not to mention the decline rate for players is the same as it was last year, despite the claims that they fixed it, everybody's stats start to drop like a rock when they hit ages 28-30. The only real improvement to the mode seems to be realistic stats and sim results. I can go on, but I'll leave it at this, there's just nothing there, nothing to keep you busy, nothing to keep you invested, you set everything up, then sim, that's it, doesn't even have a new interface, it's just not fun.
I was also a big fan of draft champions, but that seems to be gone, unless it's a part of mut now, but again, I can care less about mut.
So to summarize, this game is basically a $60 roster update, and I wish I didn't buy it. Franchise mode is the only reason I buy this game, other than to play with friends, but franchise had virtually no improvements, if anything it got worse. Don't waste your time or money with this game. Just download the updated roster from the community downloads in madden 17, it will be the same as this game.
The story mode in this game, Longshot, is complete garbage. You never play an NFL game. Its basically just a poorly written movie with a few interactive moments here and there (only a few of which are you actually playing in a football game, and even then its highschool games...). FIFA's Journey makes Longshot look like bargain bin material at absolute best.
On top of all of this, the game just feels sluggish. It feels like it is never running at full speed. The only reason I'm giving this game 2 stars is because the game is still playable. I would only recommend you purchase this game if you haven't ever played Madden, NFL2K, or NCAA football, AND this game is on sale. This game is easily at the bottom of the sports-game barrel. Even if you don't like soccer, baseball, basketball, or hockey, I urge you to stay away and try one of them instead. They all have their flaws, but nothing that makes the game look as bad as Madden.
