    I actually thought it was really good.

    I haven't played madden since the '05 edition i believe (with ray lewis on the cover), but I played a bunch of games, it got pretty easy to score, so I checked out some sliders that made the game pretty close to what the... Read Full Review

    Madden 25 a disappointment

    They put this out in a hurry and it shows. Little things are just poorly done. Here's a short list:The wind is backwards. Whatever direction it say it is? The ball will react the opposite way.You can't REALLY save a... Read Full Review

    Same game, same issues...

    Not much difference from last year, although the entrance is cluttered with features I doubt that many people actually use or play. I read reviews prior to buying, not one mentioned horrible replay camera. The reply ca... Read Full Review

    I thought the reviews were a bit biased.....

    I see alot of people aren't to impressed with this new Madden, I however disagree. The glitches people are reporting are numbed to myself, I haven't had one. The game is like any other Madden, sure the gameplay gets repe... Read Full Review

    Madden 25 falls one yard short of a touchdown and had to settle for a field goal.

    If you have not played a Madden football game in several years like me I think for the most part you will be impressed with the game. I would venture to guess if you purchase Madden every year you may be in for a letdow... Read Full Review

    Don't waste your money.

    I'm going to start just by saying I buy Madden games for franchise mode and for gameplay. So I'm only going to be talking about those parts of the game. To put it simply, Madden 25 gameplay-wise is completely broken.... Read Full Review

    No MAJOR improvements over last year but overall it's a fun game and the best in the series nonetheless.

    Let's just get the cons and the expected out of the way. No, they didn't reinvent the wheel or completely re-imagine the control scheme for Madden 25. No, there aren't 10 new gameplay modes (granted there are a couple ju... Read Full Review

    Madden 25: More of the same, and that's not a good thing.

    There is no excuse for how bad this game is after all this time. No different than the last one I made the mistake of buying (2010), and the "under the hood" improvements do not add nearly enough to the game play to just... Read Full Review

    25 Years of Madden

    So I've was happy to hear that EA was finally bringing back owner mode after it's been absent for a couple of years.This game does get better through the years, but at the same time it still needs a lot of work. The gra... Read Full Review

    Better Graphics - Same Irritating Gameplay

    It seems as though this has been the trend of the Madden franchise for the past 15 years. Honestly, I think the graphics are the best yet. The game feels very realistic in how the players move and feel with the exceptio... Read Full Review
