Madden 25 is a great addition for madden(the new running game, interception mechanic's, Connected Careers) and of course the return of owners mode.
I'm a just get down to the cons which actually aren't much, the sideline, crowds, and coaches are a bit polished but again not very realistic(the crowds literally have 3-4 motions and that's it, a of course no headset on coaches), A LOT of glitches which i find amusing but still not a nice things, and of course your going to have to swap up the sliders to get a realistic type of feel to the game.
Alright enough of the negatives on to the positives, the running game is BEYOND improved including 30 new motions and moves in your arsenal. The actions/motions of WR catches, interceptions, etc are very good, very similar to real life situations. NCAA draft classes are also back!. Offline franchise(nothing more to say but never should have left), the "my career" is actually pretty fun as long as you don't use the points most of the season(i made a RB and put him on the dolphins and we actually lost to teams better then us and it wasn't easy running for 1000+ yards as a rookie). And of course Owner's mode which is probably the best mode of this game(even though i LOVE franchise mode) i mean literally you have so much power and so many customization's with the team your with it really gives you an awesome experience.
Overall i know most people would say stuff like 'oh its just a M13 dlc" "its just madden 13 with some new paint" well your very wrong this madden nukes the HECK out of madden 13 and makes it looks like its predecessor(duh), from the first madden in 93(aka Madden NFL 94) to Madden 25(aka Madden 14) the game has taken leaps in a kitty pool to be one of the most successful sports franchises in the world.
I'm proud to say Madden 25 has exceeded my expectations and i definitely am looking forward to future installations in this Hall of Fame worthy series.

It's Madden 25 and it's not much different than the past 10 Madden games. This was the first one I played in like 4 or 5 years thinking it would have been a lot better. The graphics are the same robotic player movements. It's just the same old game. Not impressed at all. What happened to the cool NFL Blitz type graphics?
