OS:QJB checks in with his final Madden NFL 25 next-gen video. Hopefully EA Sports will start showing true gameplay on a standard camera angle this week.
Is it just me or does this trailer look pretty terrible compared to NBA 2K14's Next-Gen trailer?
EA doesn't know how to develop realistic sports games in terms gameplay or player models
LOL, it's funny how they're all zooming showing his hair as if it were some crown jewel when it doesn't even look that good. Aside from that it doesn't look bad, just not as good as some other games. The grass/astroturf looks pretty good though
Microsoft is in Bed with the NFL & EA so no NFL 2k!
most launch games look bad when compared to NBA 2k14
too bad NBA 2K is only good on graphics, gameplay is exactly the same as the awful current gen version
Its looks weird. All the football players wear these big shoulder pad and motorbike helmets. Its freaking me out.
That freaking you out, freaks me out!
Lol, american football is a dangers sport. Some of these guys can bench 700Lbs! You really wouldn't want to get tackled by one, especially without protection.
I dont know where the criticism is coming from I think madden 25 looks really good. The animations look well done and comparing a football game that has 22 men on field at a time to a basketball game that has 10 is kind of apples to oranges. You have bigger fields environments and just a lot more things going on at one time.
The problem is Madden has no competition. 2K needs to find a way around all the legal stuff to be able to bring back their great football games.
The animations are OKAY. I wouldn't say that they are well done. However, these are legacy issues with the fact that they keep adding on to an engine that is beyond it's years. The foot planting and stuff is cool. But, it still looks a bit stiff and robotic. (looking at the entire player) This is all trivial if they keep the other legacy stuff in that has been a thorn in the side of many football gamers. I really, really want them to finally get it all right in one sweet game. It seems like every time they get something right, they screw the pooch on something else. PsylentKiller is correct in saying that competition would have made this a much better game by now.
I wish Sony could make an exclusive NFL game for PS4, like they do with mlb the show
its just you. it looked great and will look better when you actually see it on your screen in 60fps dont be stupid guys.
It's not a trailer and why are you comparing a football game to a basketball game.
EA is like Activision for sports games.
I cannot bring my self to play any madden, will not can not, last football game i played was nfl 2k5, that was amazing. I just get angry inside knowing ea would have lost the battle if nfl2k6 came out. The first time i seen a corporation shook from competition.
i tell people about that 2k football all the time. the graphics was amazing. the last version of it was only $20 bucks
Who in the blue hell is Bridges? Cuz he's definitely not on the Colts. lol
It's the YouTube commentator who uploaded the video's created player.
I remember being in awe the first time I saw madden on ps2 in 2000. Im not seeing that at all for ps4 madden. It looks so underwhelming which is weird for a next gen ea sports title.
^^THIS^^ It was the first game that I put in the system. The intro from Madden 2001 got me hyped. Then, the graphics that really, really took that "next-gen" leap. I was literally in awe of the look. The funny thing is, if you look at the graphics then and now, they have not changed so drastically. Sure, they have gotten much better and sharper. But, I wouldn't say it was the same change from PS1 to PS2 era.
The hair look stiff as heck. Truly embarrassing. When is the contract up for the NFL and EA?
The contract is up this year, if EA doesn't renew the license it's open season for any game company to make a football game next year. I'd love to see Sony bring back NFL Gameday, i use to love when you made a big hit with a defensive player you'd get the sound effect of loud thunder and a big a$$ lightning strike with the screen flickering on and off....that was so cool.
Microsoft is in Bed with the NFL and EA so no NFL 2k!
Okay...so I guess I am NOT the only fan of Gameday!!! Sure, it started to suck after a few of them. But, the originals were pretty damn good. As for the NFL contract, I keep hearing that the NFL is "asking too much" and the other is that it's just a matter of semantics before a new contract is signed. I just hate that because the sport on consoles has been stifled by this decision. Think of how much innovation there would be with competition between Madden and NFL 2K...forget that...think of what 2K would have done by now!!!
I'd like NFL2k back. But we all know the NFL commissioner will renew the contract. NFL is all about $$$. I still can't believe NFL and its team are tax exempt and only give 7% of products sold with breast cancer awareness money to the foundation.
@iceman06 Yea, NFL Gameday was the sh*t back in the day, here's to hoping it or any other football game come back not named madden or made by EA sports. About the NFL contract, also now that we're in next gen the games will be even that much more expensive to make on the these more powerful consoles and the price to keep the NFL contract exclusive goes up every year and sooner or later EA is gonna have to let it go and improve their own game instead of being scared of competition if they continue to lose money in this next gen with madden like they have the last 8 years in this current gen.
That has got to be some of the worst hair graphics I have ever seen! Looks horrible to me!
Slo motion looks nice, but something is off with the animation. I can't figure it out.
If ths game was good, there would be plenty of gameplay....but EA refuses to show this game, and to me that confirms that madden 25 is crap
Its the PS4 version that kinda crappy, those earlier versions shown at the xbox reveal looked bad ass. it said it was xbone, but now that i think about it, it was probaly on PC
NFL 2K where are you ?
some of that development team is on the nba game or used to be. talented group of guys. madden would have sunk and pulled a nba live. with their sorry lazy asses.
I'd like the Sony San Diego to bring back Gameday using whatever game-engine they have for MLB:the show.
I quit football games altogether since 2k5 was monopolied out of the football genre. E.A just killed it, and like the prophecy says: i will come back to the video game football genre when the 2kseries returns.
