Madden NFL 25 PS4 Review: Return to the gridiron

PlayStation Universe
19 November 2013
  • Summary: The running game is traditional, and NFL enthusiasts will dig into the experience with a gridiron fist. The common issues with past Madden games still linger, but the pros are beginning to outweigh the cons for the first time in a while.
  • Pros: Ignite Engine rekindles gridiron running game, More natural coverage reactions, Faster menu navigation
  • Cons: Madden issues of old return, Automation, Unnatural AI block shedding

An Ambivalent Anniversary

Game Informer
19 November 2013
  • Conclusion: Concept: The game features the second iteration of the Infinity physics engine and the return of owners mode Graphics: There’s not a lot new to see, and the faces and bodies of coaches and owners look odd and out of proportion Sound: Nantz and Sims are great to listen to, even if their comments and the context haven’t improved greatly Playability: I never felt comfortable when tackling, even after fiddling with the tackling assist and/or heat seeker tackle settings...

Madden NFL 25

Game Over Online
23 September 2013
  • Excerpt: It’s been a great generation of sports games. We’ve been able to experience so many fantastic innovations in the way of visual improvements, game features, and online capabilities. It’s also been very interesting to observe how different publishers have cornered the markets of different sports. 2K Sports, for example, has taken a firm stranglehold in the basketball arena (although EA looks to bounce back with the NBA Live series returning for a next-gen debut).

GamerNode
10 September 2013

Expert Review

PSX Extreme
8 September 2013
  • Excerpt: In examining this year's sports titles, one fact has become painfully evident to me: The interactive sports world requires the next generation of consoles if it's to take the next step in regards to immersion, realism and innovation. While it's true that significant progress can be difficult with an annual franchise, it's also true that one expects to see worthwhile upgrades with each new installment.

Madden NFL 25 (for PlayStation 3)

PC Magazine
8 September 2013
  • Conclusion: The venerable Madden monolith returns for a 25th season, and it's quite possibly the most realistic Madden to date and just as much fun as it was in 1988. Deep franchise and career modes and online gameplay options round out this excellent offering.
  • Pros: Improved Infinity Engine for more realistic physics. Engaging franchise and career modes. Fun for both rookie and pro players. Hundreds of new plays. Improved running game.
  • Cons: Idiotic commentary (as always). Occasional unrealistic player movements and collisions.

Madden NFL 25 PS3 Review

About.com
4 September 2013
  • Conclusion: Madden NFL 25 Image © EA Sports 2013 sports games are proving very hard to review. None of them have been awful but they’ve fallen into the same pattern – not aggravating fans to the degree that they won’t buy the PS4 version but also kind of leaving things the way they are until then. If you haven’t bought a fake football game in a few years, this will suck up your time in incredibly satisfactory ways. It’s addictive, as always.

Madden 25

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Take my review of last year's Madden 13 . Give it a roster update. Associate any players I named who've been swapped around like pogs with whatever their new team is. Axe a missed dangling participle or two. Tighten up the mechanics of writing. Maybe there was a misused em dash. Replace it in a way that is (probably) grammatically correct. Add some flourishes here and there. Some new puns, maybe. You now have my review of Madden 25 .

Madden NFL 25 Review (PS3)

PlayStation LifeStyle
27 August 2013
  • Summary: Mad, hen.
  • Pros: Infinity Engine 2 brings much needed improvements to the already successful first entry in Madden NFL 13, The much anticipated return of Owner's Mode has made it well worth the wait, Precision Modifier is a great addition, and will have you running the ball much more
  • Cons: Audio could still use some improvements, Should you just wait for the PlayStation 4 version?
