Madden NFL 21 also received the lowest average user rating in Metacritic history, with a game rating of 0.3. This is half the size of Warcraft III: Reforged.

Players complained en masse about technical bugs and a notable emphasis on Madden Ultimate Tournament with microtransactions. Social networks even launched a hashtag calling to revoke EA’s license for American football simulators.

Madden NFL 21 is available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, and is due out on PS5 and Xbox Series X later.
