The play now feature of Madden remains pretty much the same, except graphics, and some parts of the game-play have been extremely improved. A new feature called pro-tak allows up to 9 man gang tackles, and harder hits. The graphics are more realistic, but not so much if you don't have an HDTV and a HDMI cable. Certain things about the game can make you very annoyed. Such as excessive referee cut scenes, like a discussion of if you made a touchdown, or the first down.
Over the years the franchise mode has been stripped down. Such as removing the radio, newspaper, etc. Although, the in-season scouting feature is an advantage, considering it lets you get a sneak peek at what your potential drafts picks are like.
Being able to start a fantasy draft with NFL HOF players is pretty cool, since you can draft players like Barry Sanders, Joe Montana, Dan Hampton, Chuck Bendarik, and so on.
The superstar mode of this game is definitely the biggest let down of Madden 2010. While being able to "Cheat" and create a perfect rookie, then selecting to play as an NFL rookie is neat, it loses it's substance after a season or two. Essentially all you can do anymore is play games, and look at your ego and popularity. You can no longer go to the barbershop, get a tattoo, go to the training facility, check your messages, go on your fan site, and if your want, be in a movie. Those are the little things from older versions of Madden that made the superstar campaign great.
Overall Madden 10 is a solid game. While it has some nagging problems, and some old ghosts that the creators should bring back, new enhancements make the game pretty fun to play.
