Madden NFL 10
Madden Nfl 10 for the wii is a great game. EA has made only a few errors on this one, and honestly it is a little better than 09. The camera angle is good, you still have the option to change it. 5 on 5 is still included, and just as fun as 09's. Huddle-up is a fun way to get together with a friend or two, as you have the ability to point the wii remote at an opponent and trip them up. Madden showdown is a great game mode with numerous options to turn the showdown into a wacky, fun football game. Road to the Super Bowl is great. It is somewhat like franchise only you can make it multiplayer. You still get to sign free agents and i think i remember that you get to trade your players. But, as always, there are a couple of downsides. The graphics for the field are great, but the graphics for the players are kind of awkward. And Superstar mode, I hate to say, is gone. GONE. But other than that this game couldn't get any better. I love it, even though EA needs to bring back Superstar.
Refreshing arcade style Madden, I Love It
Madden 2010 for the Wii was very refreshing right out of the gate, the graphics in my opinion are very entertaining, reminding me of more of an arcade style Madden. I have other systems as well and decided to choose the wii version this year. This game is not a ten finger pretzel wrap like other versions I have. I am loving the point and pass, it is so cool, and to make awsome moves as a runner or defense only requires shaking the Wii remote, and simplifying an otherwise complicated game to teach to new players. I have yet to try the party games or more than one person on a team, but my friends are anxious to try it out with me. I found some awsome cheat codes for this game and now have Franchise and Superstar mode, only making me love my decision to purchase this title on the Wii more and more. So if your ready for some football with more emphasis on fun, than realism, this would be a great title to own!
Madden 10 is a great game in sport history.
I got Madden 10 because I really wanted a new Madden game for Wii. I love it because in Madden Showdown you can put it on random or pick what settings you want. So if you eant a new Madden game this is the one for you!
I love the madden series, been playing it for years, but I am very disappointed with this one. The playbook is the same (please change it), The controls are great point and pass and low hits. But for the pass few years when I get to my 2nd season the game starts to malfunction, I can't save anything at all and the control starts to go wack. I have calld EA Sports numerous of times and they have never heard of this problem with Wii users. I also called Nintendo and they have never heard of it either. Both have told me to just start over and try again. Is anyone else having problems? By the way this is the second Madden I have been through since it came out and I have had the same result. Thanks for the code I really enjoyed it. It made the game better. If you are having any problems with the game please call EA so that they can work on next years game.
Would reccomend this for xbox 360 but not wii
It was fun at first, but it got old really quickly. However I like the xbox 360 version a lot. Needs better graphics!!! It seemed like when a defender got near the guy he just fell down (Which I hate because I make spin moves to get some more yards). I love the Madden NFL series but I was not satisfied with this game.
Don't listen to the haters.
It is AWESOME it is fun game for ANY football fan. graphics are the downfall the players look cartoony and some times you cant read the names off the players back.
I was stoked to go in and get this game. I was finally able to do it, got home, ripped it open, put it in and turned it on. That was where the excitement stopped. No Franchise mode which has been a staple of Madden since 98 on Sega Genesis, no superstar mode which I fell in love with in 09, and cartoony players. I realize I shouldn't expect PS3 quality from the Wii, but there is no realism to this game whatsoever. This reminds me of the old arcade game NFL Blitz without the fast-paced big hit action. There is also no John and Al, which according to some of the reviews is a good thing, but I feel it is a necessity of a Madden football game to at least throw in a few "BOOM"s here or there. All in all, I was quite disappointed in the style of the game. At least they have the new stadiums (Cowboys Stadium), but the rosters aren't even the Training Camp Day 1 rosters. This game leavs much to be desired.
Your Average EA Sports Game!
EA Sports has made tons of professional sports games that have exceeded expectations. I would consider this one of them. I own a Nintendo Wii and a Playstation 2. I usually get my sports games on Playstation 2 because I always considered Nintendo Wii as Mario and Sonic and games similar. My friend bought it for me for the Wii and when I played it, I found it awesome! Point-and-pass is a nice feature in this game and it allows you to either throw a bullet or throw a lob which you have to choose depending on your selected target. Also, the Wi-Fi feature is very exciting! You get to play against other Madden players. The only down side of this is the fact that if you don't have good Wi-Fi connection then the game will lag and even exit you from the game. Some down sides of the game? No "Career Mode" which I find very fun on my PS2 Madden Games. If this was added this would easily be the best game out there in my opinion. I won't get into detail about 5 on 5 mode which is fun, animation (which is a little different than your PS2, PS3 or Xbox animations) all the other features of this game. If you're on the fence on buying this game or not, I'd suggest that you buy it. You'll find it more fun than you thought you would.
Madden 10 is here, and well done.
I bought Madden 10 last year and was very satisfied with it. The overall gameplay and graphics are very good. Other than everyone looking the same, the physical attributes are accurate and well done. The game allows you to play as anyone of the 32 NFL teams from the Chicago Bears to the Minnesota Vikings. The teams include ALL of the 2010 NFL players. You can play a normal 11 on 11 football game or a quick-paced 5 on 5 game in pro bowl style. However, while the game shares great things, their are also negative charatersistics. In the game, the players move way to slowly. If the game was just that, I would have given it a 1-. The situation and superstar modes are very exciting and in-depth. So overall, I'd give it a 8.
Madden is back. It just doesn't feel very Madden-like
madden 10 isn’t a bad game by any means; it’s just a whole new breed of football game on Wii, and one that some players aren’t going to prefer over classic Madden. The new Showdown Mode is great, online is back (but virtually unchanged), Huddle-Up mode is a fun casual offering if you’ve got a non-gamer player 2, and having 5-on-5 mode everywhere rocks. On the other side of the fence, however, is a game that needs a lot of work. Road to the Superbowl is way too basic of a season offering, and while the multiplayer focus rocks you don’t have the ability to tweak your team, do trades, see week-to-week stats, or get anything more than the game-to-game experience of a full, half, or playoff season. Franchise, Superstar, and situational modes are still included, but they’re unchanged from last year and look ugly when compared to the new interface and design of Madden 10. The mini-games, online multiplayer, and Play Now experiences are retained, but it doesn’t change the fact that Madden 10 feels like it’s trying to wear too many hats with too little Dev time and disc space. If you dig the local multiplayer Wii scene, by all means give this one a try. For those looking for traditional football though, you’ll want to boot up Madden 09 again or invest in a 360/PS3.
