Good game for playing with a friend(take it from an 11 year old). It gets kind of boring without someone to play against because like half the game is two player mode. The best thing to do alone is probably 5 on 5. You pick any 2 teams, choose one to control, and they give you 2 receivers, 1 lineman, 1 quarterback, and 1 halfback. That is pretty fun and all the players have big heads. You can't lose by yourself; it is so easy. The best thing to do with 2 people is Party Mode. You can have this big tournament and pick lots of mini-games and compete against a friend. I would give it an 8.8 out of 10. Get it if your looking for some random game. The bad thing about it is there isn't all that much action. You throw the ball and snap it, but that's about it. If your one of those people who have a Wii so you can move around, this isn't the game for you. Pretty good game overall.
I'm a Madden junkie. This just isn't representative of Madden. It could be a children's throwback version. The controls are insulting. The graphics have degraded 10 years. If Madden ever becomes a legitimate Wii game, it didn't happen in '09.
