Madden NFL 17 is sure to bring much debate about the direction of the series, but let there be no doubt the game has certainly planted itself as a serious contender for more casual football fans' hearts.

This year, Madden has added several new features that basically hold any newer user’s hand to virtual pay dirt. From the way the new auto-running moves function to the continued increase of on-screen feedback, Madden is working very hard to win over new fans' hearts while simultaneously deepening the love from existing fans with more and more simulation depth.

Owen Good from Polygon has just posted his hands-on impressions of NASCAR Heat Evolution with quite a few interesting details. Check it out and post your thoughts. The game releases on September 13 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.

Quote:
The previous editions of NASCAR-licensed games, developed by Eutechnyx, had drivers racing on rails and accelerating or braking within them. "This is a very racy AI," Wilson said, mentioning that the EA Sports games had three AI lines that all drivers adhered to. NASCAR Heat Evolution has none. Drivers should drive where they would in that situation in a real race.

"You just always knew where they're going to be," in earlier series, Wilson said. "We really wanted a race at Talladega, in our game, to pack up like in real life."

That also means the potential for a Talladega-class wreck. I didn't see many AI driver errors, much less ones leading to a major pileup.

If you are like me and you don't look at the controls before diving into Madden -- you probably have had the QB take off and not known how to slide at the end of the play. This may have ended fine for you, it may have ended very poorly -- regardless you don't want your QB taking too many hits in football.

This year, to slide with your QB you have to hold both triggers (LT and RT) down and push x on Xbox One or square on your PS4. When to slide is all a personal preference, but I would recommend trying to avoid any big contacts with your QB since they're more prone to fumbling and an injury to your franchise QB isn't a good way to win a Super Bowl. QB slides will help you avoid the hit and keep the yards.

I'll admit to being someone who read about Madden 17's "Play The Moments" (PTM) as being something gimmicky that I probably wouldn't touch. I have never trusted the Super Sim engine of Madden, and I like to play out all of my games in their entirety. But, I wanted to check it out anyway as it is one of Connected Franchise Mode's (CFM) new features for Madden 17.

What I wasn't expecting was that I would actually really like the feature, and plan to use it in my solo CFM.
