Madden NFL 25
I WAS EXCITED TO PLAY MADDEN 25 BUT I TRIED TO PLAY ULTIMATE TEAM MODE KEPT FREEZING I TRIED MADDEN 13 IT WORKED PERFECTLY SO IT IS NOT MY PS3 IT IS THE GAME
Madden 25 for current gen straddles a thin due to it being a transition year for the series. You have to make enough changes on current-gen so fan who pick will not be upset that they are getting the same game with new roster and a new game cover. At the same time, you have to work on next-gen Madden enough, so it does not seem like the same game with better graphics. The line of what you can do for same title different platforms is tough. With that being said Madden 25 is most definitely and upgrade from Madden 13. The biggest change is in the run game. Madden 25 introduces Run Free, Which is an arsenal of new moves, plus having to actually plant and cut and read your blocks to be successful in the run game. Also Madden 25 addressed the over powered passing system that was introduced in Madden 13. They toned it down, and all passes have to be made with in reason. Madden also touched up the infinity engine, so there weren't as many weird hugging moments and blind runners on the field.. Overall with the additions to owner mode, and the rejuvenation of franchise mode, Madden 25 is a must buy for many fan of the Madden football franchise, casual football fan and/or someone who just want to pick up and play the most current football game that doesn't have next gen yet.
Waiting on a football game where you can call the plays and let the players on the field execute or struggle based on talent, skill and chemistry. Basically, I don't want to play the game I want to coach the game in career mode or coach mode.
I've been play Madden Football most of my life, and this has to be the worst one. I have yet to finish a game without my starting running back having a season ending injury. every time I run the ball no matter who it is there done. The new modes are dumb and I see no reason for them. At least the runner don't fall all over themselves like the game. Like I said, they just get hurt all the time. Not a fun game just stick to 2013.
First of all the online play is so laggy that it hurts to play. Then when I try to play offline like on connected careers the IA defense is ridiculously unrealistic. Between the D already knowing and jumping the routes and then them jumping 10ft sideways for an INT. And it doesn't even matter if I put it on Rookie or All-Madden. But other than that everything else is pretty cool.
GOOD JOB EA
This game is amazing. Way better than past maddens. Owner mode is great, and the running game has improved a lot. The option is easy to run and you get a lot more realistic games. There even was an unessasary roughness call
Same as Madden 13 with current rosters
First off its a shame the screenshots this and other sites use for this game are for the NEXT GEN system, not PS3; If you purchase this title you are wasting $60 for a roster update and a game that is hard on the eyes...literally...if you haven't purchased this title already just update the roster for your most current owned version of Madden and you will be ok and can spend your money on something worthwhile...EA really needs some competition, so maybe they can put some effort into the new versions of this game.
This is a good game.
This game is good, but EA could still do much more to make this game great. With that said I rate this game a 8.0.
Sad 25 anniversary___
We miss Madden 12... fun, creative, competitive, addictive, close to reality (nearly a simulator)
The last two versions of Madden are destroying a reputation gained in +2 decades, and without a competitor!!!
"Connected Franchise" is a feature that real fans don't accept; EA staff don't insist please. Is very limited compared with the pure "Franchise" mode of the previous versions.
I can't understand why spectate mode (CPU vs CPU) disappeared in the last two versions. This is a feature that added a lot of fun to the season, because is possible to let the CPU play any game front of us, and not only be tied to one team and to have only results and statistics from the other 31 teams.
EA STAFF PLEASE MAKE A GAME WITH 32 TEAMS INSTEAD ONE TEAM ONLY. Just enable spectate mode again.
Connected Franchise & My player is trash
The graphics are very good, but the connected franchise mode is totally a miss. I elected to try the online my player connected franchise, I practice every week in an effort to increase my xp points so I could earn a starting spot but the computer player increased much faster than I did. I was on the Browns for goodness sakes. Wen through a whole season as a backup with 85 rating. Cant trade yourself until the end of season Tried to be an owner and manage the team I was on but unable to do that. Tried to wait until free agency to get a new contract with 85 rating, didn't. force to retire.
