Positives: The biggest difference is the improved defensive AI and how they play in both man and zone defense. You no longer need a fast quarterback to have success and with the new QB accuracy system guys like P. Manning and D. Brees are some of the best QBs in the game representing their real life success. Kicking field goals has been very easy in years past so the new kicking meter that makes it more difficult is definitely a huge improvement.
Negatives: The crowd could use a huge improvement. From seeing the same fans every few seats to clothes that don't match the temperature overall the crowds in the game need a lot of work. A new feature that hasn't worked out smoothly is the new play calling system, the idea and concept of this system is nice, however it still has errors at a noticeable rate. Some of the issues that have harmed the games integrity in years past have returned such as gang tackling causing odd animations, too many dropped interceptions, and QBs breaking tackles left and right.
Final Thoughts: This has been my favorite madden to date up to this point, there is still a lot of room for improvement for the game in the future but overall is a very fun game to play and is one that all football and madden fans will appreciate.… Expand

Defense has been improved from what there hasMadden 25 has delivered in its jump from Gen 3 to Gen 4 with great improvements in gameplay. Defense has been improved from what there has been a lack of in past versions of the game and physics become even more realistic leading to a very nice simulation football experience. The one big negative to this game is the graphics, not that they are bad but for what was expected for Gen 4 the jump wasn't that huge compared to some of the other titles that jumped from Gen 3 to Gen 4 overall graphics are better than they were before but not a huge noticeable difference. Overall this is a great addition to the series and one Id recommend getting for any football fan and it looks like the developers are finally making progress and heading in the right direction definitely looking forward to future versions of this title to see even more improvements in graphics and gameplay… Expand

Presentation has taken a huge step forward in both detail and overall realistic look compared to BF3 and Gen 3 BF4. Online has been the greatest pleasure thus far with great maps and with more players in each round creates a lot more action. One big issue I have run into is the game freezing randomly or stopping due to an error in which you have to restart your game and I've had this problem more than once and in both campaign and online play. Overall a great game and one Id recommend and fan of shooters to have.… Expand

The presentation isThis is the best year of madden thus far there seems to have been a lot of moves in the right direction creatively. The presentation is phenomenal from the new physics system to pre game theatricals. Gameplay has improved from past years but there is still issues with coverage in both zone and man defenses. Precision modifiers have been a nice addition and the run game is better than its ever been which is what I enjoy most about the game. Overall a very solid game and something that I look forward to playing as my NFL football experience.… Expand
