What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Madden NFL 25 is a sports simulation that tries to model all aspects of pro football from play calling to running, passing, defending, and tackling to team management. There isn't any controversial content built into the game, but be aware that kids who play online with a headset microphone can engage in voice chat and might hear profanity and other inappropriate words or discussions.
