Summary: Madden and I have never been friends. I don't hate the game, football just isn't my sport and the sport I do watch, I don't play the video game for. I've been exposed to football and Madden because of friends and family. My best friend and was an avid Madden player and Washington Redskins fan. My girlfriend is also a big Redskins fan. My family falls squarely on the side of the Carolina Panthers and they're constantly asking me how the new Madden will turn out.
Summary: : Madden NFL 25 may not quite be the ultimate next gen experience, and may not be the most accessible or original game in the world, but it is a solid game of football that’s absolutely packed with content, and that’s reason enough to give it an easy thumbs up. There’s a ton of options to play with from jump, and the game generally looks and sounds great, though the visuals don’t quite meet the next gen expectations one might have going in.
Excerpt: Madden NFL 25 on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 is a tremendous game of virtual football. The gameplay was sharper than ever, the presentation was fresher than ever, and the 25th anniversary touches made it a wonderful ode to the series. The funny thing is that as good as the game was, all it did was whet my appetite for what the PS4 and Xbox One could do to make it even better.
Pros: Overhauled graphics and environments make this a worthy next gen football title., The atmosphere of football has finally been captured, even the crowd seems as real as ever., No lost modes like in previous next gen Madden titles, every mode on the PS3 version is on the PS4 version.
Cons: Commentary still needs to be improved upon., Would have been nice for an upgrade option for those that purchased the PlayStation 3 version of the title.
Excerpt: Since the days of NFL licensed electric football, people have been trying to replicate the pro game in their living rooms for ages. Back then people had to use their imagination quite a bit, but thankfully for today’s generation we can plop down on the couch and fire up our favorite video game consoles to do just that.
Summary: A superb and detailed imitation of TV football, an occasionally exciting gameplay experience, and what can feel like an exercise in monetisation from EA.
Pros: Excellent player animation and physics. Detailed simulation of watching the big game. Playing offense can be thrilling.
Cons: Confusing to newcomers. Microtransactions are crass. More geared towards fantasy football management than actual gameplay. Defense plays itself. Snickers Really Satisfies™, repeatedly, in every game.
Summary: Madden NFL 25 n'est pas vraiment l'épisode anniversaire que nous attendions, et apporte finalement assez peu de nouveautés. Néanmoins, le gameplay se montre toujours aussi accrocheur, et apporte quelques nuances de jeu agréables par rapport à l'édition 2013, notamment au niveau des courses. Sur PS4, la réalisation technique ne progresse pas outre mesure, difficile donc de conseiller cette adaptation si vous avez déjà parcouru le jeu l'été dernier sur PS3 ou Xbox 360.
