"[The Yard's] commitment to allowing players to risk on every play is a breath of fresh air for a game that so often chooses to focus on some aspects of football that only hardcore fans may enjoy," says Anthony Nash in his Madden NFL 21 review.

Madden NFL 21 originally launched for $60, but Madden games tend to go down in price over time. With only two days left in this year's NFL season, you can grab the game for 50 percent off.
