As both a sports and games lover, it was fresh experience that felt like a quick two or three hours when in reality it lasted somewhere between five and seven hours. Most of the performances are top-notch, except certain star player cameos who phone it in. All the characters are believable and act exactly as you would expect real people to act, and they all have understandable motives.
The writing is absolutely superb and Madden Mobile Coins instead of dumbing down the nitty gritty of football plays, formations, and strategies for wider audiences, they aim this at people who know and love football and test your knowledge. Everyone likes to use the "By X, for X" cliche, but this mode truly feels like it's "By football lovers, for football lovers." If you have any interest in football, the game is worth picking up (or renting) just for this mode alone.
Most of the MUT 19 Coins experience is exactly what you expect, but the twist is the new exceptional Longshot mode that proves sports can be an avenue for video game storytelling. Turn off false start, offensive holding, and instant replay; raise catching ability through the roof; and stay away from the slimy Ultimate Team mode. Do that and you'll have a good time with Madden 18. Go Bucs!
