Madden NFL 08
It got me hooked to Madden
I started playing this game one day, since I have always been a football fan. And it was amazing. It never gets too easy, it's fun for everybody, from hardcore to party gamers (out of all four categories I put casual). The graphics are okay, pretty good for a Wii game anyway, and I thought it was kind of funny to see players walking through each other every once in a while during uncontrolled play. I got every other Madden game after this, up to 2013 since that's the last one they made for Wii. Buy this if you're collecting all of the games in the series, are looking for a different stlye of Madden (only 09, 07, and this one have the style, since they changed it for 10), or simply don't want to or can't pay for the expensive new ones.
THIS IS AWSOME
i got this today and it is good the only thing i dont like it no creating features but overall it is better than 09,11,and 12
Great for its time
This game is spectacular for its time. Great gameplay. I wish they would have put the same modes in the other newer ones.
Most Frustrating Game EVER!!!!!!
The rating of "1" is being generous. I wish I were still within the 7-day return window for this game!! This is by far the most frustrating game I have ever played due to the terrible controls and poor timing. I do not recommend this to anyone who has ever played Madden on any other console. If you have, you probably are used to precise timing between controls and players. The lack of precision in this game will raise your blood pressure every time you try to throw a late pass and get sacked for a huge loss (which will happen almost every time drop back to pass). I've played several Madden games before on Playstation and Xbox, and the experience is night and day compared the Wii version. The advanced motion control is somewhat entertaining only as QB since you do make throwing motions to get the ball down field; however, the lack of precision timing will ultimately lead to a lot of sacks and interceptions. Defense is frankly a waste of time. Just hope the computer throws an incomplete pass or runs into your defender. Once in a while you can get an interception, but mostly you'll have a group of DB's standing around with the ball landing between them. It seems to me like EA made this game for Wii simply to keep with their tradition of putting games out each season for all consoles.
This was my favorite wii game by far last year. Its a little old now, as i perfer madden 11 and soon madden 12... but i think it was the best game from 2008 to early 2010 for wii as far as sports.
after this year madden started to go down hill on the wii and i just want to know what happend
Best Madden Game on Wii
This is by far the best Madden game, and probably the best sports game on the Wii yet. When people think of sports on the Wii, they think stupid controls and childish graphics. These graphics are stunning compared to the newer childish graphics of Madden 10 and 11 on the Wii and stand up to the Madden games on Xbox 360 and PS3. The controls are awesome and realistic, especially when running the ball, and it is fun to play defense in this game. In most other Madden games on all consoles, defense is boring, but this is exciting. The ratings and season mode are cool and addicting and multiplayer is great. Also, they have mini-games such as 2 vs 2, which is very fun. I have this game and Madden 11 on Xbox and have played Madden 11 on Wii and this game stands out. This is a great game, especially for groups. I would suggest getting this game.
Good sports game for wii
This game is not good for people who have played Madden on the playstation or xbox most of the time but it is good considering other sports games for the wii.
Better Than 10
this game is way better than 10 the grafics in that game stink. the only down side to 08 is that the rosters arent updated.
Best Madden Game For wii
okay most people may not think this but honestly this game is the least 'cartoony' in the graphics compared to 09' 10' and 11' . the game is fun if you like football and are a finatic but if you are into having a game to play alllllll the time and not get bored then this might not be the game for you . but if you think about it just about all games eventually get boring even cod . so to sum it up i personally love this game and i do get bored sometimes but who doesn't
