Madden NFL 25 is not a terrible game, but it is not a great game either. There are some weird quirks that occur during the game that greatly bother me. For instance, I blew out a team 43-7, however, the news article presented in the game referred to it as "a close one". Moreover, how many times do I have to hear the Black Eyed Peas song every time I commit to a practice game? The game also does not appear to understand the concept of "end of forward movement".
The game is ok, but not "next gen". It's also not a huge step forward in the franchise. This is a definite rent, but I would not recommend to buy.
