Rated 8 out of 10 by sportfan15 The only Madden on wii u
Ok when I bought this game I wasn't sure what to expect. This game isn't as bad as some might say. It's no ps4 version but it was the effort Nintendo gave it to keep their company on top of the gaming world and keeping up with everybody. It might not be the best but is worth it I think.

The reviews for madden 13 on the other consoles are mostly sub-par. I do not understand why. Most people complain how there is not a "franchise" mode but there is. If you play your career as a coach it's just like a franchise mode but MORE in depth. I find it absolutely amazing how I can watch a movie or tv show on my big screen while playing a full madden experience on the game pad. The controls do take a while to get used to because the joysticks are above the buttons but after a week or so I feel like it's better. This version does not have the so called "enhanced" physics engine, well that isn't a bad thing. In the ps3 and xbox versions players are always tripping over each other, so bad that it's unrealistic. On the Wii U version you do not have to worry about that. My ONLY complaint is that the commentary is just not that good. I like how the did the broadcast booth thing but what the commentators say do not make sense at all. For instance, I threw a pass and lost about 3 yards. The commentators said that "It was a very good completion" ? That makes me feel like the quality of the commentating is going down because I loved it in madden 12. Overall I think this is a good buy.
Rated 7 out of 10 by StickyMick Good but not great game
Madden on Wii U is pretty good overall. The graphics look on par with 360 n ps3. One thing I like the most is it does not have that physics engine like the other systems. I had a ps3 and i couldnt stand tripping over my lineman everytime I ran up the middle or couldnt get around a block. That was very annoying to me. Not to say the Wii U could use some updates to the game there are some glitches but the others have them to.The Gamepad addition is awesome changing routes on the fly are pretty cool and the touch screen to pick plays is also good (even tho sometimes its a pain). Didnt like the motion controls with the wii so I'm glad they didnt include them in the Wii U version.
Rated 0 out of 10 by AngryLime Nintendo brings back exciting sports gameplay
I didn't get a single sports game for the Wii mainly because it was all motion control and there really wasn't any kind of online play; not to mention the graphics were out dated. Now with the wii U I will be getting sports titles once again from Nintendo. The graphics will be enhanced above other systems and gameplay will play similar to core gamers liking. It does NOT have the new physics engine that is included with the ps3 and xbox 360 titles but that really doesn't matter to me. What I'm looking forward to most is drawing out my receivers routes. The is going to be a game i'm going to look forward to having.

Rated 8 out of 10 by RABIDSQUIRREL Great Game and Awesome HD game for WII U.
Great Game and Awesome HD game for Wii U. Only problem was when the came was played only on the gamepad, Canton Team froze the system up and had to unplug power. Worked fine with all the other teams. I would still recommend this game!
Rated 3 out of 10 by kevinb2343 down grade from previous years
The lack of franchise mode is really a minus to this game. You can only play as a coach or a one player. You can not play as the coach and then play the game as players like in franchise. because of this, this is not worth the purchase
Rated 7 out of 10 by AJRMARTIZ RUSHED GAME
This game is okay. the game play is great but the framerate is bad. the announcers sometimes repeat themselves and they could have done better with the graphics. Also a few game modes are missing. Only get it if its a good price or wait for a new one!
Rated 7 out of 10 by Wiishootemup Good, not great
This is a solid launch title for Wii U but nothing better. There are a couple of bugs, and some things could be better, like the field goal kicking mechanism. It is good, but it could be better.
