You'll enjoy the revamped combine with more drills, fewer forced storylines, and the ability to receive real-time feedback on your player's performance.|
|Cross-Platform Play (Cross Play)||Madden 24 introduces cross-platform play, allowing gamers on different systems to compete against each other.

Crossplay helps expand the player base and offers more challenging matches against users from various platforms.|

↖ 5 Worst Things About Madden 24
|Lackluster Presentation||Madden has historically struggled with the presentation, and Madden 24 is no exception. Despite minor improvements in player interactions between plays, the game needs a comprehensive halftime show, updated announcer crew, and branded presentation for prime-time games.|
|Limited Customization Options||Customization options in Madden 24 remain limited. While franchise mode has seen updates, the absence of create-a-team, create-a-play, and create-a-fan features could be much better. The promised additions, like custom equipment and tattoos, have yet to materialize.|
|Restricted Superstar Mode Positions||Although Superstar mode returns, players are still limited to a specific set of positions. The absence of options like kickers, pass rushers, and offensive linemen diminishes the mode's appeal. This limitation needs to be addressed to offer a truly versatile Superstar experience.|
|Neglected MUT Draft Mode||The MUT Draft mode, once beloved by players, has been left unattended for years. This mode's potential for engagement and fun has yet to be explored, unlike similar modes in other sports games. Players are yearning for updates and improvements to revitalize the MUT Draft experience.|
|Delayed Cross-Platform Play for Franchise Mode||While cross-platform play is a positive addition, its absence in franchise mode at launch disappoints players looking forward to more active leagues. The delayed implementation aims to ensure a smooth experience, but the wait may be frustrating for those eager to engage in cross-platform franchise competition.|
