EA games have gone from frustrating to unplayable lately (at least offline). Not only has the AI not improved, it seems to have gotten worse in many games. They basically make games assuming everyone plays online at this point. In Fifa and NHL, the CPU players just run/skate around with superhuman powers. They aren't smart, they are just super agile and can never be beaten.

The only mode I enjoy in any of the games is where you just control one player (be a pro or whatever they call it in the various games).
Yes. EAs sports games have gotten so bad in this area. There's not much attention given to the single player AI anymore. There has to be a way to leverage cloud compute. Have the sports equivalent of driveators. I used to be such a huge sim sports game fan but can't get into EA sports games these days.

Still like this service for the other stuff.

Battlefront 2 really does look amazing. Not sold on the campaign though.

Oh nice! Perfect price. Now won't be effected by high expectations and can hopefully enjoy it for what it is.
Thought the same thing but I got a couple hours in and I just don't find it interesting. Combat is solid, graphics are nice, but nothing else hooked me.

I still have the disc. I fired it up back when it first went BC, it's still kinda fun, it seems a bit cleaned up from the original OGXB version. I used to love this game, the level in the old mental institution was awesome, especially the bath/shower area, the destruction in there was great.

Madden 18 is dope!
It's the first madden I've bought in years, probably won't buy the next few either but I'm happy with Madden 18 as well.

I tried it a few days ago, it was ok but UFC games haven't been my thing. I played the strike only mode so there was no ground game but it still seemed like it was more complicated than it needed to be.

Don't sleep on NBA Live 18 this year. It's pretty dope. I bought that and Madden 18 a couple of weeks ago. Both are pretty damn good. I'm happy
