Many fans found the Madden American Football series' transition to the last generation a little jarring. Electronic Arts has, however, learned from its mistakes in taking its series from the PS3 and Xbox 360 to the PS4 and Xbox One.

The result is a game with a visual upgrade, as well as a number of tweaks on the field.

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman is the cover star this year and, appropriately, a renewed focus has been placed on defence. When a player takes control of a defender they'll see a cone representing their field of vision and be able to make a call as to whether to make a conservative tackle or go bigger to force a fumble. Likewise, the defensive AI has been upgraded and the best players won't be easily evaded.

On the offensive side, plays can now be sorted by personnel, scheme or even concept. Novices can even get advice on what plays to run based on their history and the tendencies of their opponents.

Connected Franchise mode returns, enabling players to join a team as a superstar player, coach or owner. Madden Ultimate Team is available again, with players building their own squad based on collectible cards.

Madden NFL 15 is a solid transition to the next generation of games hardware that builds on the strengths of the franchise.
