This is a very good game that really helps the wii. The graphics are much better than I expected them to be(They don't compete with the PS3 but better than the PS2) The controls in this game are very well aligned, I think that passing, running, ect. are very very well a ranged. Although most of the features in this game are pretty much the same as on the other consuls the controls are definitely better. Also the fact that the loading and saving in the game is lightning fast compared to the other systems, that makes it that much better.

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.
