Same as M15; the towel on Andrew Luck still doesn't hang correctly, in a true physics law manner, as well as the sleeves of jerseys not laying correctly as in the picture of Peyton Manning as he holds his arms out..It is like the uniforms have been over starched...

I am hoping for realistic physics this year; making size matter in a realistic manner to the laws of physics we understand and to which other games have been more successful in replicating...

Looks the same! Madden didn't look bad so can't complain...Hopefully they fixed the lighting during night/dome games.Also added a user defined camera

It's too early into this console generation for there not to be visual differences in the game from the previous year. It still has a cartoonish feel with how the jerseys look and overall colors.

For the love of God update the equipment. It's been 8 years and all they've added was helmets. Gloves are still from the reebok era and cleats colorways still aren't correct. I know the BIG issues with madden gameplay wise probably can't be fixed but equipment is an easy one

Nice to see they still have no cloth physics in the game... Jerseys look terrible specially in the one with Peyton around his arms.

Also have the CAM undershirt thing which looks like it was just painted on. No texture to it at all.

I don't expect them to update the engine, animation system in one year. And I understand not updating the tattoos. But I can't for the life of me figure out why they can't update the equipment. Especially when they have updated equipment in NCAA 14. They are still wearing Reebok. SMH.

Still no single arm sleeves (rg3/Nate Washington/earl Thomas), still no mouthpieces, still no new cleats (cams hightops, Jimmy Graham addidas) but I bet they still have all the old school helmets, cleats, Facemasks from the 50's

It looks like the colors might be a little more vibrant but I think it's just because all but one of the screenshots are night games. The Gronkowski shot still has that washed out look to it. Gronk's numbers are still gigantic on the front. Equipment is still a really bad joke from 2011, still waiting on those M12 team color cleats...



Overall not very different at all from M15. I wasn't expecting much in terms of a graphics upgrade but I would have at least liked to see more equipment added or, in some cases, fixed.

Huge fan....are we 100% sure that's actual screenshots of madden 16 ???? If so that's very alarming it looks exactly like madden 15

When will we get updated cleats and Gloves they still using same equipment from madden 13 ps3 I'm hoping to get new cleats and gloves with the ability to customize them with colors I know gameplay is key but these are things that's well overdue for years now can't keep buying the same game that look like previous year versions WOW us EA I wanna continue to support your tittle

They've had more than a year to implement a new engine - certainly enough time to provide new animations. After all, weren't we promised "never to see the same tackle twice" when the Infinity Animation system was rolled out for Madden 13?

I have hammered away at this point and will continue to do so because websites refuse to challenge EA on this issue as it relates to Madden. They'll hammer $20 games like RBI baseball but Madden is never challenged.
Those site have their pockets lined by EA or let it slide bc Madden was good back in the ps2 era. It's not just madden or EA a lot of big names get passes and high review score from websites.

Can't belive we still havnt seen those packer cleats!! Seriously just give us the option to pick a base color and an accent color for cleats (black,white, team color 1, team color 2) and while they are at it let us do the same for gloves.
 
# 13 howboutdat @ 05/14/15 09:14 AM
ok so its pretty clear , even to someone with perfect eyesight, there is about 0-1% difference in graphics from last year to this year. Now i know many are disappointed by this,including myself, but not surprised. So with that fact, since they obviously didnt put much time and man power into graphics, hopefully that means it was put into gameplay, testing, and making sure things actually work right this time.They have NO more excuses. Cant be blaming short dev cycle no more. This madden is getting a full dev cycle , so i dont wanna hear any BS excuses from EA, this game best be on point.Especially when your not even touching graphics , that = more time on gameplay , hopefully modes, and testing.

It's like when your boss comes back from a two week trip and you don't have anything new to show them. They are going to wonder what you did for two weeks while you were unsupervised. I feel that way about EA. I leave for a year after Madden 15 and come back to check on the status of 16 and there is no progress. What have they been doing for a year???? I may just have to keep 15 and not reward EA for the laziness they show year after year by buying 16. If MLB the show and NBA2k can get exponentially better year after year, then one would certainly expect Madden to do the same.
 
# 15 slashpg88 @ 05/14/15 09:46 AM
Ok Madden, we get it! You can make a pretty game and focus on the likeness of 10-20 key players.(Kaepernick last year, OBJ this year) why not focus on making the game better? We hear about your new key improvements but nothing that hasn't been tried in the past. Look at how games like 2k and The Show give gamers what they want. Where is the revamped MYPlayer mode to compete with other sports games? Connected careers is not the answer for a true solo story mode. I don't hate Madden, I just wish they did more than make things look pretty. That was cool in the last gen, time to get with the time and make a game because it's a good game.
 
# 16 JRT2006 @ 05/14/15 09:51 AM
When I'm at work and I get tasked with a project, there's an employee right beside me tasked with the same. Why? Competition. As long as two employees strive to be the best, they will attempt to beat each other out.

Since the purchase of the NFL license, there has been zero competition. As long as EA has no competitor, they don't need to strive for the best because they know there are millions of football gaming fans out there that simply.....have no choice.

Im not gonna say I expected a huge jump graphically this year from last but I was hoping to see up to date equipment at the least, If they cant get the players to play like they do in real life can they at least make the players look how they do in real life.

Peyton Manning is still not wearing his towel in the middle like he has since, what, 1994 while at Tennessee perhaps?

I'd love to hear their technical excuse for that.

This just looks like Madden 15. I see no difference. And it's not that Madden 15 looked bad, but the daytime lighting completely sucked (it looked flat and washed out), the colors were all off and dull on every setting of the game, and it looks like they've done zero to fix that based on the Gronkowski pic.

Plus, the texture levels just don't look high enough. But when you make a design choice like having 40,000 polygonal fans with decent detail and 3D grass that's always on, you're going to choke some resources. Why they abandoned their much smarter and more practical approach to those things from last gen is beyond me.

Oh, and about that other stuff you mentioned, I wouldn't hold my breath. I'd expect the game to play pretty much the same, as what you're asking for would be a huge leap that would be totally uncharacteristic of this development.
I agree with you on all points...
 
# 19 smiley3 @ 05/14/15 10:46 AM
What are developers working on then? I don't see them interacting with fans like 2k does and the MLB the show team does? They're just taking advantage of the exclusivity!
 
# 20 Trojan Man @ 05/14/15 10:53 AM
These don't look good.

The lighting, body models, and textures all are sub-par to me.
