Madden NFL 23





Madden NFL 23 


I am thankful I had the money to purchase a copy of Madden NFL 23 on the Xbox Series X system. Did you catch the live stream I did of Madden NFL 23 on Rumble? If you missed it then just look for it in the videos section of the Family Friendly Gaming website. By the time this issue publishes it should be on at least one of our video sites. I took the Buffalo Bills and absolutely stomped the Philadephia Eagles. I had some fun playing Madden NFL 23 but also noticed some strange quirks in the game.

Madden NFL 23 asked me what I wanted my offense and defense to focus on. I selected run inside and stop the short pass in the first half. I then selected run outside and medium pass in the second half. I could not get outside runs to work in the second half. The inside runs worked great though. In fact I could almost always get a first down and many times a touchdown with a run up the middle. I was on rookie difficulty so that may have something to do with it. There are many different jukes and moves that can be done when we have the ball.

The big promotion surrounding Madden NFL 23 is Fieldsense. Honestly Madden NFL 23 did not feel much different to me than other recent Madden video games. It is very difficult to get through your blocker when you are on defense now. I did shove my blocker into the quarterback a few times to disrupt the plays. Quarterbacks in Madden NFL 23 sometimes throw nowhere and miss an open receiver. This can be frustrating if this happens on a third down and you would have easily gotten the first down. Running with the quarterback is still pretty easy - even for twenty to thirty yards.

I am not a fan of the menu layout and setup in Madden NFL 23. It is a pain to find some things because one area looks like the right spot but is online only for example. Controversial content from the NFL uniforms and fields is replicated within Madden NFL 23. There is no option to play the Washington Redskins within Madden NFL 23. It is a shame that players are denied that choice. If you like all kinds of new controls then you can turn on the skill based passing. I failed that tutorial miserably and stuck with the traditional controls.

Two family members can compete against one another in Madden NFL 23. There are numerous NFL teams to play against. Madden NFL 23 looks good and I actually enjoyed the commentators. The offensive music has to be turned off one song at a time which is so lame.
