Madden10 is an okay if you like to just do "Quick Play". If you are like me and like to do the "Franchise Mode" then you will be very disappointed. It's not even like it has a bad Franchise mode, IT DOSEN'T HAVE ONE AT ALL. The game has a season mode, which isn't much fun, if you play poorly they "bench" you and you can't even play the game. the graphics are terrible, all the players look like they are wearing shoulders pads that are way to big for them.
As a longtime Madden player, first on early Nintendo and up through the PS2, I was anxious to put the franchise to the test with my new Wii system. I found the graphics more cartoonish, I found less playing options (could not find a Franchise, or season mode) and the other gaming options (5 on 5) were almost compelling, but they were not what I enjoy Madden for, which is football. At best, I found the controls awkward, and at the worst I found them unresponsive. I was able to hook up online for a game with another player (this was easy and cool), but could not get my quarterback to throw the ball. My 9 year old son, was frustrated by the way in which you could not help but watch what play your opponent was setting up. Executing audibles, or line adjustments often times ran out the play clock. In the end, I was disappointed in the game, but thankful for GAMEFLY, which lets me try before I buy.
