Madden NFL 25
Draft Risers and Fallers/Combine/Analysts
Ok i wasnt too happy with Madden 13, although it's always a great game. What i would love for you guys to do with this game is bring back the combine. now the whole points a week you use to scout players is good but how come we cant have about 5-7 combine a week and about 7-10 a year for each prospect so we can see if they live up to the numbers the get and see if they can rise up the charts or if their over hyped players. Lets get creative people! its the 21st century for god's sake! where are the REAL NFL Draft analyst in these games? Mayock? Kiper? Clayton? Rapoport? Brooks? lets get REALLY intune with the NFL.
Possibly the best sports game!
All of the past madden games made it near impossible for a running back to get 100 rushing yards in a game. Also, returning a kick for a TD was never seen in the game. Madden 25 solved these problems and still kept the good ole' passing game as well. Now, instead of focusing the team on receivers and a quarterback, the half back and run blockers are equally important. The Ultimate Team mode is infinitely playable and Connected Franchise lets you and your friends battle it out for a whole season instead of one game. The only setback for this game is the in-game purchasing. You will sometimes get matched up with all-star teams online as they spend hundreds of dollars on the game. This does not make them unbeatable though! All in all Madden 25 is most likely my favorite sports game I have ever played and I haven't even tried all of the modes.
Oh yeah, there are several training camp things to do to learn all of the moves and tricks in the game. Plus, you get rewarded for completing them.
I would love to see NCAA imports come back! If any one reading this is like me, one of my favorite things about the two games was importing players from NCAA into Madden. Seeing players progress while in college then move into the NFL; watching some players become legends, others first round flops was the best! Recognising players you see from college in the NFL and being able to draft, play as or against them was awesome! Bottom line they need to bring back the imports.
This game cheats.
Context: I was playing franchise with my friend and I had a 9-1 record. We were in the same division and we had the same record, but I held first place in the division. It was a very intense season... The Problem: It was week 11 and I was playing against the Patriots for my 10th win. The game had gotten to be tied at 31-31 with 2 minutes left. I had possession of the ball and managed to get it to the 19 yard line with a minute in the clock to spare. To ensure the win, I ran the ball to get rid of the Patriots' timeouts and score a field goal to win the game. However, when the Patriots ran out of timeouts with 30 seconds to spare and it still being second down, the game automatically went into simulation and denied me the opportunity to score a field goal. A GAME WINNING FIELD GOAL. Instead it immediately went into overtime, where I lost with the Pats scoring a field goal.This game cheats. It lies. I feel betrayed. This is by far the worst Madden ever created.
I miss the old Madden
I miss Madden 07, here's why: I miss how you could control your whole organization in franchise mode. I miss the mini games like: two-minute drill. I miss fantasy draft. I miss superstar mode. If madden is able to bring all of those features back, it will be the greatest sports game of all time. Bring back the classic Madden!!!
The running game is way better than years past and the physics engine runs much smoother...the connected careers mode is also an improvement! Graphics are very good and the gameplay in general is very realistic.
More weather effects
I'm an old school Madden. Since Nintendo! I know the tech is out there. I want to see more mud and dirt on uniforms when playing in bad weather. What about the nicks and cuts and all the real pain that is happening out there on the feild. If you want to be the best ! Deliver the BEST! GOOD LUCK
ON ALL THAT!
Can't wait... BUT..
Don't get me wrong, I love my Madden games. I love all my sports games. But I really hope that Madden 25 is nothing like Madden 13. I do NOT like 13's Connected Careers.
I don't like how you have to be the coach, I wish you could stick with being the GM and hiring your own coaching staff.
Also, there was no Pro Bowl... What's up with that? Then the offseason was very limited. You couldn't remodel your stadium or relocate... In my opinion, Madden 13 was the worst! And the only reason I still own it is because of Ultimate Team.
In conclusion, Madden 25 will hopefully be better overall that Madden 13. Or I'll go rebuy Madden 12
Madden 25 ?
i can't wait for the game at first was confused when it said pre-order madden 25 on xbox but then noticed that it is its madden anniversary game title. i actually thought the game overall was really good including connected careers but everybody has opinions. although they can fix superstar mode and other parts of franchise mode if they do it will be the best madden to have ever come out
Why I didn't like Connected Careers
Again, my opinion, but.
I personally did not like being the coach. I liked controlling the whole organization with stadium upgrades and relocation, and staff hiring and firing. I also believe they should add Defensive Assignments back in because I may not always want my number 1 corner on the opposing number 1 receiver. Also, a practice squad would be and interesting add so you can keep young prospects that may not be good enough to play on your 53 man roster yet.
