Madden NFL 17 Achievement List

By Mark Delaney, 5 months ago
People often use Madden as the poster child for stale annual series, but last year Tiburon and EA Sports quietly released one of the best Madden titles in years. Heavily focused on fixing all aspects of the receiving game, including defending it, Madden NFL 16 set the bar high for the series moving forward. Now Madden NFL 17 returns with the logical change of focus on the running game. Highlighting the differences between big bruising backs like Eddie Lacy and the smaller speedsters like Ameer Abdullah, this year's Madden looks to provide the most faithful simulation in the series' history of carrying the ball out of the backfield (and hopefully much further).

Attention has also been paid to defensive assignments. Madden 17 introduces new front seven roles meant to make your AI teammates smarter. If it works as intended, the dominant defenders of the league will find their gaps, play the initial movement off the ball correctly, and give opposing offenses nightmares.

Many past Madden titles have had easy achievement lists, although more recently they've moved toward more difficult unlocks, with some becoming either very time- or money-consuming, too, depending on how you play Ultimate Team. What do you think of this year's list?
