Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Best Madden yet

This is the best madden yet. You have the franchise mode, create a player, create a team, and many other modes (all of which are a lot of fun). They also have a new skill level called Madden IQ, it puts you through a series of tests that will set the games skill level to your skill level; it will also update your skill as you play. Overall this is a better Madden than the one we all have came to know and love. 5 out of 5
