This game doesn't look as good as its PS3 and 360 counterparts, but it more than makes up for that in fun factor. The Wii controller and controls allow you to become the quarterback, find the reciever, go through progressions, and throw the pass. This game has flaws, but its fun as heck to play. Give it a shot!!!

I started out playing this game thinking it was going to be awesome. The whole idea of actually passing the ball around with the wiimote was exciting to say the least. I didn't expect too much graphically so I wasn't really let down with the less than stellar look of the game. It is a step up from the Gamecube but that's a small step in my opinion. The game does offer some pretty fun multiplayer mini games but there isn't any online support so you have to have real friends. All in all the games control is pretty spot on. The passing game along with the running game is pretty fun. Although catching the ball and defense has a steep learning curve and the kicking game just seems broken. If you are a fan of Madden its worth the rent just to see how it works for you. I personally like it better on the 360 with a standard controller.
