UTC's Corey Andress has posted his early Madden NFL 25 impressions of the Run Free running moves, improved run blocking and more.
I also noticed a few new animations, including seeing the defending linemen push offensive linemen back. What felt so good about the run blocking was the fact that you actually feel rewarded by staying behind lead blockers and waiting for holes to open up. It was noticeable from the very first game I played. It was also great to see blockers think the way they should. Intelligence on the line has definitely ramped up. Screens were really effective if played against the right defense, so fans of teams such as the Redskins and the Patriots – who have a ton of screens in their playbooks, should feel a lot more at home this year.
