Jon of RealGamerNewz writes, "Final Verdict: There are some people out there who say “I don’t like sports games”, there are even some who complain that sports games are released yearly. To those people I challenge you to actually pick up this game either as a rental or purchase and find out how Madden NFL 25 is bringing back the classic feel of football video games being as much about the video game experience and gameplay as they were about football. You don’t need to have a favorite team or care who throws the ball the best where you come from to enjoy Madden NFL 25, and if you are a sports buff there’s no doubt that the massive roster, new innovations in Connected Franchise Mode, the Madden Ultimate Team system, and improvements all around in terms of realism; you’ll be satisfied with this title.
The only reason this game is not a 10/10 Platinum Game is because the current generation hardware is feeling outdated and at some points might be having trouble pushing the boundaries and keeping up with the innovations EA Sports has in store for Madden NFL 25. Overall, RealGamerNewz scores this game a solid 9/10 and it has earned itself an RGN Rating of Gold. This game is being advertised by EA Sports as a return to the nostalgia of Madden but with the most evolved gameplay experience seen in NFL video games thus far, and we are happy to report that is exactly what Madden NFL 25 is." 9/10
