Summary: I got this game off a Kindle special promotion and paid $5 for it! I wan't going to purchase this game, but for $5, I couldn't go wrong. The last copy of Madden I owned is Madden 12, so there may be some features in this version that I missed out on as I never played Madden 13. EA normally gives you a roster update and brings back some old features, so there's not much difference here. There's also better graphics which is to be expected.
Summary: Not that there is a lot they could've done on a already successful franchise. Some of the graphics seem rushed and really un-needed. But it's more of the same so if you like the franchise you'll like this game.
Minor Improvements still has flaws found in previous editions

Summary: While some tweaks made this madden more enjoyable such as the new precision modifier for offensive players and the precision passing for QBs. The biggest issue with Madden 13 was the absence of franchise mode and due to the uproar of this infraction EA put alot of effort into bringing franchise back although it is still not what the masses hoped for. There is still to much focus on the Player/coach/owner and not on just playing football games.
Summary: I bought Madden NFL 25 Anniversary Edition specifically for the NFL Ticket Stream as I don't play video games. I gave the game to my son and he has enjoyed playing it but I can't comment more than that on the game itself. As for the DirecTV Streaming, it is better than not being able to watch my team at all but completely sub-par! Week 1-Technical Difficulties all day.
Summary: Game freezes at the loading screen, don't buy it! My experience with Madden 25: I pick teams, the game starts loading then abruptly freezes. Based on research it's a wide spread problem with the game not any physical defects to the disc. EA sports will tell you that they are working on the problem. More likely they are laughing their way to the bank as people spend their hard earned dollars on a flawed product. Again, do not buy this game!
Summary: I bought my copy from Best Buy and so far there are no freezing problems on Ultimate Team or Connected Franchise(I am on the 2nd season, with no simulated user games.) There are just too many injuries on the standard All-Madden setting of the game even with players with ratings of 80+ on injury, stamina and toughness.
Summary: I ordered Madden this year because of the DirecTV Sunday Ticket -- that works perfectly for me on my desktop, Android table, iPhone and iPad -- no complaints at all. You can only use one device at a time however, you should know that already but if not you do now. For the value of this game because of the Sunday Ticket it's easily 5 stars. But I'm reviewing the game, not the value.

Summary: Normally I dont write reviews very often.But felt like I had to for Madden 25 Special Edition.If you get Madden 25 Special Edition,you get NFL Sunday Ticket for free that you can watch on a computer,tablet,phone but not for the Playstation 3. Which brings me to the main point of writing this review.The Sunday NFL ticket will not be on the ps3 this season.It will be on Xbox since the Xbox is officially with the NFL now.So if you plan to watch Sunday Ticket on your ps3...
