I really like how playing in a dome and outside in Denver will help you kick the ball farther and when playing in the rain or snow it will hurt your accuracy and power. Also am interested to see how the "Ice the kicker" mechanic will work.

Love how the score ticker updates on games that were already played in online franchise games.

They're really getting in the mood with that Weeknd playing in the background aren't they...

A lot of nice touches in this years Madden though so far.

All the things I'm hearing absolutely makes me want to play Madden again, after a couple of years off. That being said, one of my all time pet peeves, with players instantly appearing in the huddle hasnt really been talked about. How is it, during a two minute drill, if I decide I want to go from 5 wides, to three wides a TE and my RB do I have that happen instantly? Or with 6 seconds and ticking, I instantly get my special teams in the game and kick a field goal? At this point I feel like we should be seeing players come on and go off the field. I mean dam, that was actually in the very first Madden!

yeah thats pretty huge for the online franchise people - who were basically touting it as a useless feature.
