I got my hands on a free copy of Madden 25, put it in the ole xbox and fired it up.
I was automatically reminded why this once great game now blows.
It is 95% fluff and bloat. From the transitions to the commentary to the play calling. It drags on my xbox like no other game.
If you are talking pure enjoyment in gameplay, I had more fun playing NFL2k on Sega Dreamcast.
Please NFL, bring back competition and ditch your EA Exclusive License nonsense.
