Madden NFL 25
It's Madden? What more?
It's great, Its fun and its madden? Online play is the best part. Franchise is way better and big improvement from last years madden. So if you like franchise mode and online play this game is a must have!
Madden 25 is great
This game is awesome if you like football. This is basically next gen gaming on a current gen console. This is a great game I for sure love it.
I had this game for a day so far and it would be the only game i have that is the best i would strongly want people to play the game.
deciding to buy it? Don't.
This game is a huge let down compared to the past madden games, the running and tackling mechanics are so unrealistic, the players stats are a tad bit off, Online is insanely glitchy, buggy and laggy, I admit that I do regret buying this game. NCAA easily got the upper hand on this one, and I hope madden can do a better job next time
Madden 25 is definitely the best madden game game play wise, but it is not as good as i hoped. Maddens overall game has improved but the setup and time it takes to load is annoying. If you have all the Madden games, get it. If it is your first Madden game, don't.
Much didn't change.
There's only so many things you can do to sports games to make them different. im not saying its the same but its not a major improvement.
Stop Comparing it to Before
This game is down right fun. I can't think of any other madden, since 2005, that has had such great graphics and more importantly GAMEPLAY. People continue to complain that this game is "not much of an improvement; looks the same; just roster updates". Well let me tell you something, they are right, haha. But seriously, this game does look the same except for a one notch improvement in graphics, very little. The presentation is cool when you choose a prime-time game cause there is a cool black guy saying stuff about the team. There are a few annoying things in the presentation though. Every time there is a flag, the refs talk to each other for much too long; and it doesn't even let you skip it! Lastly, talking about presentation, WHERE IS THE SOUNDTRACK! I don't want to listen to some weird orchestra song. It's like the song you hear on NFL Redzone when the channel is off-air. I mean I love classical music, but there song isn't even good, AND IT JUST REPLAYS OVER AND OVER. They put music in the stadium, but that's only 3 seconds of the song cause they are too cheap to buy the rights to some music. The game modes are pretty cool, but it has it's problems. The connected franchise is hard to play online cause there are so many leagues but they only have like 5 people and you never know when they will advance the week so you may be stuck waiting to play your next game. The offline mode is pretty cool though. You get to set your prices on fries and jerseys and all of that cool stuff. It's like the original franchise mode except with financial duties. Where the game shines is the GAMEPLAY. The running game is crazy good. Before it was hard to gain 2 yards rushing, NOW YOU CAN SCORE LONG TD's. The passing game is pretty similar but the user catching has improved which is enjoyable. INJURIES ARE VERY BAD IN THIS GAME! Every single game I have at least 3 injuries, usually 1 which the player can't return. WHAT IS THIS! That's not realistic at all. I am turning off the in game injuries because it is just too much. Everything else is pretty much the same. Commentary in this game has improved a lot... oh wait, no it didn't. The commentating is almost exactly the same except for some little facts like "the falcons lost to the seahawks in the playoffs blah blah blah". I miss Gus Johnson. I think they should give you multiple commentators to choose from, that would be cool. Get Chris Collinsworth in this game too, he was the best. "WHERE ARE MY BLOCKERS, WHERE ARE MY MEN, WHAT'S GOING ON!?". I love that guy.
THE BIG QUESTION, SHOULD I BUY IT!?!?!?
Depends. I am the guy who buys madden every year for roster updates. This year, I bought it for not only the roster updates, but also the improved running game. If you want these things, get MADDEN NOW!!!!!
Not so bad yet not so great
I really have mixed feelings on this year's Madden installment. While the graphics are nice, the return of owner mode is a huge addition after it was removed last year and the ability to import your draft class from NCAA 14 is a plus (though there is a downside to that) this year's game feels and plays just like last year's Madden. The AI still makes far too many stupid mistakes which takes a lot of fun out of the game. Importing your draft class like I said is nice but there are many glitches that comes with that it loses some of its appeal (player's race is changed and sometimes they are in two consecutive drafts). It is fun for a bit but it does lose its appeal pretty fast.
My rating for this awesome game is a 10 because its Madden Ultimate Team! If your gonna get this game thats awesome. A reason MUT or Madden Ultimate Team is awesome is because you can buy packs make your team verse other online players and hopefully make it to the SuperBowl! Theres also auctions you can buy players with coins you get from winninng games! GOOD LUCK!!!!
Best Madden game of all Time
I have been playing madden since it came out years ago, this one by far is my favorite. They really did a bangin job on this game. I love playing it.
