Madden NFL 25
Garbage, I wasted my money, dont repeat my mistake
Apparently immersion means different things to EA and everyone else. Still the same problems as last years where the sidelines are the same 70 people moving in unison, however in this game the on the field movements are just as not believable. Don't get me wrong, the on the field movements are great, players move fluidly, maybe too fluidly, seeing how it's a very common occurrence for DB's to complete 180 while a WR runs past them at full sprint and manage to stay with them. The AI is broken in ways I can't understand. For some reason receivers like to run towards the QB on 3rd down and run back behind the marker after catching the ball past the 1st down marker. Even the announcer AI is broken. It's like they were given 4 options. Praise QB, criticize QB, praise RB, or criticize RB. And the game doesnt keep track of simple things. 10 1st downs into a game, well into the 3rd quarter jim nantz says "And there's their first first down of the game". They don't even bother saying player names on the field anymore other than the big three (manning, brady, and brees). Not a good start for the madden franchise for the next generation. This is exactly what happens when there's no competition in a genre. A company makes a truly bad game and just says "Oh well, people will buy it anyway. It's not like they have any other options i they want to play a football game."
Madden 25 is Terrible
I've been playing madden since 2004 don't waste your money on this. On the Franchise we can't even view our players Season Records & Career Records. When their Franchise is over, how do we know if we want to release or resign them!? We sure can't go back and look at the film of every player.
The same with Preseason. After every preseason game we have to release 4 players, except week 3. On week 3 of preseason we have to release 8 players. How do we know who we want to release if they don't show us their records!? That's just stupid.
I love this game its one of two games I own for the Xbox One. The graphics are out of this world when you get on the field for the coin toss you definitely can tell how awesome the graphics are, every blade of grass is visible the players look so real. connected franchise is excellent I have played as a owner and coach to this point I think the whole experience is so awesome. I can play this game over and over again and never get bored no game is the same there is always a different gaming experience.
Dont Buy Game Freezes
Don't waste your money this game is defective. It will freeze and you cant play. Just check out the ea web site thousands of complaints.
They will not admit there is problem but they and don't care. There many time consuming solutions but none of them work. I have had the game replaced and it still freezes.
Its not that good
This game has ok graphics for next gen, not really a big step like other games. The gameplay leaves something to be desired as running mechanics are better, but passing is still shaky as on pro its too easy and on all pro the computer knows what your going to do, which tells me the A.I isnt more intelligent, just the defensive backs apparently have better hands the receivers which isn't realistic as when i throw it the safety sprints across the field to pick it off, so the gameplay still has plenty of work to do, and the new owner mode is pretty shallow and connected franchise as a whole is still not that good, Ea needs to get their act together or someone else make madden games, but this game is still fun with friends.
Amazing Game, Some Flaws and Downgrades
Madden NFL 25 for Xbox one is a generally good game. Pros: + Connected Franchise +Online Head to Head +Great Graphics +Great commentators +Good gameplay Cons: - No More free running - Stiff arm glitch -Xbox one crashes so i get losses on online matches
Great game but a lot of flaws
I really enjoy the game when it works. If youre playing against AI its fine. There are flaws like if I want to run and the gameflow is on, all I can pick is pass plays from the gameflow selection. I have to manually go pick a run play. Sometimes from a kick return you or the AI will get tackled over and over again by both teams. Eventually they go down but kind of weird. Also a lot of times someone will go out of bounds but the clock will still run. So nothing too bad their I suppose but needs to be fixed. My main issue is online play. Its almost always laggy to the point you can barely play, theres no way to mute the other player without going back to the xbox home. This can be annoying as you hear everything they say... Sometimes you get kicked mid game, or you cant even join a game itll keep saying cannot connect try again. I found out sometimes you just have to be patient when you do a search. Normally itll show a searching status icon and you go in a game or itll say try again. If the icon disappears, dont click search again just wait or it will kick you out just before the game starts. Very annoying. But hey, when you get a good game and theres no lag its a lot of fun. Building my team up and just playing against the AI is a lot of fun its probably my favorite game right now actually. I have dead rising and ryse as well. One last thing Im leery of is EAs servers got hit by DERP not too long ago by a ddos attack. I would have thought EA would have been more secure than that. Kind of lame no one could play for half the day because of it. So EA definitely has some serious bugs to work out
honestly madden is a great game all out but the EA servers will ruin it for u i was up 17-7 today and ea kicked me out of the game and i got the loss everyday since i bought this game ea kicked me out of the servers AT LEAST once unless you have the patience to keep clicking "connect to ea servers" every 5min i think you should save/spend your money on another game
If You Never Played Madden Before, Don't Jump In!
I love football, especially the Seattle Seahawks because that's my home team and I have always cheered them on through the good and the bad and have watch most of their games since I was like 7 or 8 and I'm 18 now. Yesterday I decided to buy my first copy of a Madden game and it was Madden NFL 25. My curiosity got the best of me on this one because I did not know what it was really like, and after playing it for a awhile I already got sick of it and everything in the game seemed to get really repetitive with all the plays. I'm not saying it was a bad game, it's just not for people like me, who like to mainly play first person shooter, action-adventure, and RPG games like COD: Ghosts, AC4, and Skyrim. To like this game I feel like you have to have been playing the Madden series for years to really appreciate this game. So if you read this and you are a gamer like me do not buy this game, and if you love the Madden series and are a die hard football fan than I would recommend this game for you. I will be taking this game back to GameStop tomorrow for in-store credit and maybe get a different game.
I've been playing MADDEN since 1989...MADDEN is always fun to play. This Next-gen MADDEN is no different than any other..."BETTER GRAPHICS" is always a plus. "GAMEPLAY" is where it's at and the game play is good enough for myself to enjoy. I have no issues at all. "SOUND" is phenomenal...!!! Next year's version will probably be excellent. I'm just a gamer who really enjoys MADDEN on any video game console.
