Games: play football as an unsuspecting person

Austria is a stronghold of American football. Only German teams have managed to win the Eurobowl more often. In the last two European Championships, Austria came in second place and only had to admit defeat to France and, narrowly, Germany. So why not turn to “Madden NFL 22”, if only to try this strange sport like an unsuspecting person?

A quick first game is overwhelming even at a simple level. The endless possible combinations appear at the bottom of the screen. What would be good to choose is not really revealed. At the top are icons that are a mystery. Attempting to escape the rushing crowd fails miserably, the known “FIFA” dribble combinations have no effect.

Fortunately, there is a training mode. Little by little you learn the technique of the game: find the correct combination game, the pass with the precise time, the correct block, the most promising defense. Compared to “Fifa”, the concept is completely different. If the ball is played in attack, watch four or five runners at the same time, assess who is most likely to escape defense, and then pass the egg to them at the right time. It seems that everything is going incredibly fast. But actually the game is much slower than “Fifa”. If you play football based on “Madden”, you feel like an American on the German highway: everything is going too fast.

Best seller in Germany

“Madden NFL 22” is currently being criticized by American critics. But you probably have to have sucked football on your breast milk to understand the bad reviews. For others, the attraction is not just learning to play. With its various options, it also ensures the best entertainment. You obviously see it that way in Germany, where the game is currently number 1 on the sales charts.
