Madden 07 for the Wii is a great kick off of the sports genre. The game feels as if it was built from the ground up for the Wii rather than being a quick and dirty port for launch.

While the graphics are expectedly below that of the PS3/X360 versions, they are still pleasing to the eye, with sharp textures, environment mapping, shadowing, field of depth blur and and silky smooth animations. The licensed music is great, and the sound effects are crisp.

What really sets the Wii version apart, though, are the well executed motion controls. Passing, juking, stiff arming, tackling, kicking, pumping the crowd...all the actions that are relegated to simple button presses on other consoles are now effortlessly performed using the wiimote and nunchuk. This added dimension makes Madden more visceral and involving than it has ever been. The motions just make sense.

Football games have an inherently high learning curve. I've been playing since Joe Montana on the Genesis. The Wii makes football accessible, so you can worry about the X's and O's, rather than thinking about what triangle, square circle, L1, L2 , etc does.

Madden Wii has made football games appealing again. Even my girlfriend, who would never touch a football game previously, enjoyed the game.

Madden 07 for Nintendo Wii is an awesome game. It will take some time to get used to,once initial learning of controls is out of the way you will have a blast. Superstar mode impressed me. I think the way superstar mode is put together is perfect. I would recommend this to anybody who enjoys taking full use of the Wii remote controller and nunchuck.
