A collection of sports games are available for sale at $26 from Walmart within Walmart's Black Friday week sale, including FIFA 22, Madden NFL 22 in addition to NBA 2K22. NHL 22 can be bought for the same price on Amazon. The discount is valid for PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch versions (if available) of each game which runs through November 28.
FIFA 22 is, in our opinion, one of the highlights of the sale with a score of 8 in our analysis earlier this year. It's true that FIFA 22 doesn't change much from FIFA 22, and we don't like the microtransactions included in Ultimate Team mode, but it's a lot of fun to play football games are well-paced and players' animations look excellent due to the HyperMotion tech.
For Madden NFL 22 We have rated it 7 in our review and called it "a recent milestone for the series" thanks to better and more varied AI teams, brand new features like Gameday Atmosphere and Gameday Momentum and a revamped Franchise mode that makes idle time between games more enjoyable as opposed to last year's.
We didn't write a review of NBA 2K22 or NHL 22 at the time, but both games have racked positive reviews from the critics this year. NBA 2K22 has the 78 mark on Metacritic and the general reaction is the gameplay is solid however it is hampered by microtransactions and technical issues for certain modes.
NHL 22, on the other hand, was received more negatively, with an average of 71 on Metacritic. As noted in our review roundup for NHL 22, most critics are high on the hockey but not so much on the lack of creativity. The move into EA's Frostbite engine gives NHL 22 an improvement in visuals over previous versions, however.
