Madden 22’s face scans are a disgrace to the Philadelphia Eagles
A few weeks ago, EA Sports dropped the latest version of their Madden franchise, and it’s safe to say nothing has changed with the video game giant. EA hyped up Madden 22 as a changed game, but there are several game-breaking bugs and aesthetic issues early on. I was able to check out Madden 22 on a free trial through Xbox Game Pass, and when I saw the face scans, I couldn’t believe my eyes.
Jason Kelce, Fletcher Cox, and DeVonta Smith look almost unrecognizable in these images. Now, I get there are a lot of players in the NFL, and sometimes you can’t get every face on the roster right, mainly low-tier players. But these are some of the Eagles’ most popular players. EA can’t even get the faces of the best center in the NFL, a top defensive tackle, and the Heisman winner?
On top of all of this, they want to charge $70 for the full version, a $10 increase from previous years. If these were issues that were just under the helmet photos and the gameplay was good, it’s one thing, but let’s take a look at new head coach Nick Sirianni.
Sirianni looks like Gabe Kapler, as many have suggested on Twitter. On top of that, we have an upside-down NFL logo covering his hoodie, stretched wording covering his sleeves, and his sweatshirt appears to be backward. How do you mess up a game this badly?
Luckily, 2K is getting back into the football scene, and Madden was at its best when they actually had to try when competing against other brands.
