Madden 22 sliders and best options for a realistic game

Madden 22's sliders are key to creating the perfect NFL game that suits your tastes.

Madden 22 sliders let you customize your matches to suit nearly any playstyle.

They’re ideal if you’re new and need a bit of help learning the ropes, but it’s also the best way to create a realistic game of NFL football. Here’s how to do that.

Madden sliders adjust nearly every aspect of the game, from how easy it is to land passing plays to setting quarter length, customizing penalties, and more. Most players use sliders to create a Madden experience as close to a genuine game of football as possible, but if you just want an easy match, they also let you make an impossibly good team.

How to adjust sliders in Madden 22

You can only adjust sliders from the main menu. Navigate to the gear icon, then choose which settings you want to adjust.

The only important one here is the game style. Simulation is best if you want as close to a real NFL experience as possible. The rest, such as game length and fatigue, depend on your style and how much time you have at that moment.

If you want the most realistic game, though, here’s what we recommend.
