6 / 10.0 - Madden NFL 20
Aug 1, 2019

Madden 20 is a game that will divide fans right down the middle. Fans who love MUT and have been getting the attention for all these years, will come back and really love what they have. Fans of modes like Franchise and Superstar may feel like enough is enough, no matter how great the action on the field is.

The Gear Club Unlimited series could be a top-level racer and dominate that scene on the Switch for years to come. But until they find a way to make it feel more than a large-scale mobile game, it’s impossible to recommend to anyone who isn’t desperate for a handheld racer not named Mario Kart.
