Madden 25 blogs for Connected Franchise and Owner Mode released; Hands off Impressions (Updated with Small Screens)
I really like what I see here, I wasn’t overly impressed with anything here, some decent changes, but nothing great. A bogus Madden 25 Anniversary edition of the game on Amazon didn’t help me get excited either. But today’s blogs definitely get me ready for a little Madden 25, and it is mainly because of one reason, the multi-player is back. That was one thing about Madden 13 that drove my ape[crap] about Madden 13, I couldn’t play it with my brother in multi-player, when in Madden 12 and all the others I could. I don’t know what portion of Madden 25 allows you to control all 32 teams but I do hope it is Connected Franchise AND Owner mode and not just one of them.
As I said earlier I am excited for the new menu’s I hope that it makes the mode more functional, because last years game was a giant mess, screen after screen and not being able to find half of the stuff you need to run the team properly. And the lack of a coaching strategy screen during the season was also confusing and really sloppy on Madden 13’s part. I guess they patched that in later on but I was already onto other games at that point, once you lose me I am not likely to come back, and Madden 13 lost my interest real quick.
Another thing that puzzled me was the the mid season contract extensions really ticked me off, I mean that never happens during a season, pre-season? Sure, but not during the season unless your the likes of Darrelle Revis, Maurice Jones-Drew or Chris Johnson but not mid season, it makes no sense. I think Madden tried to push the contracts part of it instead of sitting back and letting that get taken care of itself.
Here is a list of features that will come to Madden 25:
- Full 32 team control
- Imported Draft Classes
- A league Transactions Log
- New Commissioner Tools for Online Connected Franchise (at least this is how I read it from the blog)
As I said I love these additions, I think they make Madden from having me feel kind of low about Madden 25 to fairly excited about it. I might wait for the next gen consoles to get it though, either way if I pick up a copy I will review it with a critical eye because I was so disappointed last year.
