When it is Madden it's not necessary to be concerned about drama in locker rooms or establishing a new culture or even really care for the limit on salaries. So on this week's Madden simulation, we're creating Beckham a Lion, and we're playing Detroit against the worst team of the NFL (according to Madden) which is the Houston Texans, in a desperate effort just to see this damn team beat a rival, virtual or otherwise. If you'd like to be a part in the fun, head onto our Twitch page at 10:30am on Sunday mornings to stream.
A number of annual sports titles cost just $26 at Walmart in conjunction with the retailer's Black Friday week sale, comprising FIFA 22, Madden NFL 22, along with NBA 2K22. NHL 22 can be purchased at the same price at Amazon. Discounts are available for PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch versions (if available) of each game and runs until November 28.
FIFA 22 is arguably one of the highlights of the sale that scored 8 points in our evaluation earlier this year. It's true that FIFA 22 doesn't change much when compared to FIFA 21, and we do not like the microtransactions available in Ultimate Team mode, but it's a lot of fun to play football and matches are well-paced and the player animations look great through EA's HyperMotion tech.
As for Madden NFL 22, we gave it a score of 7 in our review, and described it as "a new high point for the series" because of improved and more diverse AI teams, brand new features such as Gameday Atmosphere and Gameday Momentum and a completely revamped Franchise mode that makes the downtime between games more interesting than the previous year's game.
We didn't review NBA 2K22 or NHL 22 as such, but both games picked good reviews from critics this year. NBA 2K22 is sitting at an 78 rating on Metacritic, and the overall response is the gameplay is solid but is hindered by microtransactions and technical issues for certain modes.
