This has to be one of the best Madden Games I have Played. All the controls of Wii work flawlessly together and they make sense. I feel when I play that the game is way more action packed and you are just zoning out anymore. You actually feel like your in the game. It's hard to sit down and play because you just want to get up and move around. This is a great Madden for first timers and for the people who didn't like other Madden games because they where way to complicated. It's really easy to play this game. (Once you do the training I might add ) You will pick it up fast though. The game is lacking one thing though. Graphics. But as soon as you pick up the stick you forget all about that. You'll be way to wrapped up in the game. The graphics are better than Playstaion 2 and Gamecube but not even close to Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. I feel like the hard core Madden Fans will not like this game because it is not as in depth as the other Madden games in the past and it's harder to audible and hot route and move the line around in the time given before the snap. Maybe I am just too slow though. I would definatly give this game a try. Can't wait for 2008.
I am a casual gamer and I had high expectations for Madden on the Wii. I had Madden on the xbox and it was an intuitive, simple, and fun. I have also played Wii Sports and thought adding some hand motions would make the game even better.
Madden on the Wii was not fun and simple. The startup menus force you to create a profile before you can play a game. This took a few minutes longer to get setup, when I just wanted to one click into a game. Once I got into the game, It took a long time to figure it out and had too many options to really get a quick easy game in. If you aren't a die hard football fan or hardcore gamer, this game probably isn't for you.
So you will want to pick this one up alot of fun and a new take on the genre of madden football. The controls are fun and creative and after a few minigames you will be rockin the house... Sadly though they really crapped out on a few small things.. Like no little opening video before the start screen.... Such a small thing to ask for but I'm asking for it. You also wont find yourself bringing it to a party and having noobs to the Wii (but love madden) just pick it right up and play it.. Which hurts the game considering multi is so much fun with football games.... But those become minor blemishes to this exellent game RENT THIS ONE FOR SURE!!!
