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.
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.
Don't waste your money
It's cool that this game is the 25th anniversary, and there are some good features, but this game is so unbelievably frustrating to play. Being the 25th anniversary you would think the gameplay would be amazing, but there are so many glitches and it just seems like they took a lot of shortcuts making this game, not to mention I've never had a game freeze up my Xbox as much as this one does. The sideline grabs are so messed up: you can catch it 5 yards in bounds and it'll say one foot doesn't come down in time, then when the other team catches it clearly out of bounds it counts it as a catch. Also, the speed ratings are a joke, you can have a running back with 95 speed and he'll get run down in the open field by a defensive lineman. Really? I'm so disappointed in this game, wish I didn't waste my money on it.
Nothing to be excited about
Instead of worrying about who will be on the cover. EA needs to fix the GAMEPLAY and PRESENTATION. HALF TIME show STATS etc. O Line and D line interaction, RUNNING there's too many things to list that's wrong with madden. Espn Nfl2k5 wasn't perfect but it got most of the game of Football right. If fans want to give EA their money for a half way developed game every year then that's your choice. I would love to see a great madden game but its obvious that the crew at EA lack the passion and motivation to create a decent football game. If you're in denial look at the you tube videos then hopefully you'll stop wasting money on an unfinished product. You can agree or disagree doesn't matter to me. I will not buy another football game from EA until they can prove they can make one 06 to present nothing special.
lots to fix
well since madden 13 was the worst to date, there are plenty to fix. For starters please bring back the potential rating that was by far the best feature besides franchise mode. i know EA decided to keep connected careers, since thats the case have more options and not so limited with it. i like playing as a GM i liked franchise mode. Why not expand on the great features that were in madden 12 that made it great. For instance like the potential feature have something like A- or B+. Get more specific with or make it more realistic. such as have more commentary with stats from big players that are on your team that you control in franchise. just bringing back franchise and potential features would make this game twice as good as madden 13. Please EA fix this game and dont make another horrible one like last year.
Whats so madding about football?
It feels like only last year when the last madden game come out. isn't it amazing how fast this life feads. Ol wait it was only last year when the last Madden come out. This game is almost the same but with some small but appreated improvments to the physisic & animation. I wish EA did not make these games every year. A easy DLC update would be much better. The game is fun but unless your crazy about football or have not played a Madden game in a bit you might want to think about it before spending $60 on it. Easpechly with lots of amazing games coming out this Christmas season & most likely better Madden games coming to next gen systems soon. But if your a Madden fan boy you will love this game. It's fun football. Well God bless & happy gaming. Feel free to read my out reviews thank you.
Add more graphic details and more stuff
Since madden came out the 12th man has alwasy been treated like a nobody, so if EA could make the fans of the NFL madden game look more like fans instead of copies, that would be great. Because without fans sports and every type of subject that has people cheering and buying stuff disappears like thin air. Also EA what about having a helment camera point of view so we can see what the player see's in his helment. Another thing EA could add is what everyone keeps talking about is better team sideline graphics plus more equipment options for your player like a lip gard mouth peace and eye black so it gets the sun out of your eyes. Along with different kinds of facemasks on the helment and have the ability to change it's color to multiple different colors. Like have a white facemask on the Rams helment or royal blue, also like the dolphine green facemask or maybe orange , which might be cool to see the different colors look like on the teams. One more thing that would great to have is your player in superstar mode be in the waiting room in the draft and before that get combine workout days depending on what college your from as well as meet a NFL ledgend that has played your position on the day of the draft.
A good Madden game
I was impressed by this madden. Though not having franchise still bums me out, it has moved to the owner mode in connected careers. It is pretty much like franchise, fire and sign coaches/players, build new stadium/relocate, and you get to be the owner. Building a legacy is fun to do, something to achieve to try to become the greatest owner of all time. One of the things I wasn't impressed with was the games constant want to show stats all the time. It is nice once in a while but it slows down gameplay, especially in the red zone. As soon as your in the red zone, the game decides to show you your red zone stats. It just bugs be when its late in the game and i am in hurry up offense. Other than that, its a pretty good game. Definitely stands out from last years game.
I was playing franchise and two things happened in games that I did not like. The first was when was playing with the Carolina Panthers and I was playing Buffalo and Ej Manual literally threw the ball behind him he was looking right and his arm went right and the ball went left. The other thing was the next game against the Giants I was trying to run with Cam Newton and JPP was on the other side of the field and he went like it was on fast mode on instant replay. Other than that I do not have many problems with the game but their a lot of things that NEED to come back since madden 12 their has not been a really good madden game 12 had to many glitches 13 had okay graphics but not even 12 had a glitch like what I saw
