Rated 6 out of 10 by Moose lots of problems but better than '10
Madden 11 for wii has problems left and right. The awful graphics have been untouched; I don't know why but a lot of recent wii games have bad graphics. Plus you can get anywhere as a ballcarrier just by flailing around the wii remote, CPUs do that, too, once I needed four hits just to take down the ballcarier. FOUR HITS. And either Superstar is locked or EA has ditched all the good single player classic modes....except Franchise, which brings us to the improvements. Franchise is very cool and revamped in good fashion, but not everything is simple, after every game you control you face a decision that harms one part of the organization but helps another. But it's alright. Weather conditions are more diverse, and all the fun multiplayer stuff remains in the game. Auto-replay and analysis has returned, which is good. Pre-play menus are still here. Fun game+bad graphics, like last year, but overall better than '10. But this game is an atrocity for hardcore gamers.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Grayson508 Best Madden ever on any console
This is the best madden put on any console. Graphics and game play are creative and fun. Mini games are challenging with great local co-op. EA did a great job on franchise mode and weather during games. Madden 10 is also a great game, just 11 gives you weather and a few more options, that you can choose to have and can switch at any time. The interface is simple and straightforward. The music makes me feel like I'm tail-gating or in Gillette Stadium. Commentary is good. I like how they mashed nfl blitz with madden style. This is truly a gem. There is plenty of replay value. It's fun to be so involved in the game with the controls. A lot more creative then just holding a controller and button mashing the whole time, which I lost interest on playstation for madden games. Second best madden game on wii would have to be 10. Third would be 07. Fourth would be 13. Fifth would be 09. Sixth is 08. Last goes to 12.
Rated 4 out of 10 by McChillinHOmedogy PS3 Way better dont waste your money on this.
I got my Wii after 2 years of begging my parents. I was 10 At the time and knew nothing about video games. I had no idea the ps3 and xbox 60 had way better graphics, because all my friends had wii's so i wanted to be like them. Im in to sports but i am not allowed to play football so i like to play it in a video game. My friend had madden 2010 and chris johnson was like 88 rating. So i waited and got 2011 were cj was like 98. Well The game was kinda disapointing at first cuz the players looked just like the 2010 madden. I have to say the franchise thing is really cool, But it got boring after i beat it so many times and my whole roster was 99 98 97 96's. So then i was ready to play superstar made, well guess what it didnt have superstar mode!! R u kidden me?! So I saved my money and im gonna buy a ps3 its way better graphics and way deeper plus the racing games are actually good!

First of all, everyone is complaining about how the graphics need to look real in madden 11. Just so you know, the wii isnt capable of games with those high level graphics like 360 and ps3. Something with the hardware... plus, im pretty sure it wont be more "real", because, um... just look at the cover and compare it to the cover for 360/ps3... Also, people are saying that there needs to be franchise and superstar mode in madden 11, well... in madden 10, just go to cheats or codes or something (it might be under EXTRAS) like that and enter the following: Franchise mode: TEAMPLAYER Superstar Mode: EGOBOOST situation mode: YOUCALLIT Super Bowl stadium: THEBIGSHOW Pro Bowl stadium: ALLSTARS and ... you should probably just enter this one, because, well you'll see... Master Code (unlocks everything) emphasis on the "everything": THEWORKS
Rated 1 out of 10 by Jessica Gridiron Worst Football Game Ever
I wish Madden 11 for the Wii used the classic controller because the motion controls on the game are terrible. The controls don't always respond the way they should. There is a delay with the motions along with inaccurate passing with the gestures. The game desperatly needs the classic control and better graphics. Gameplay could really improve that way. The players look like cartoon characters, and the stadiums don't look very realistic either. The only good thing about this game is the 5vs5 mode. That is a great feature, except it needs the classic controls. I don't understand why a game like Madden could be this bad for the Wii. The announcers are the only thing that is truely good on this game. I will never get another game that only uses motion controls.
Rated 10 out of 10 by krusteak Great Game
one of the best madden games i have played i played it on the ps3 and not even as good the controls are great and graphics arent the best but the wii isnt made for hd games it does have good graphics the best i have seen on the wii i like the controls so much it makes you feel like youre in the game but i guess thats why the wii was made for motion it would an even better game if the wii fit was supported for this game i have bought every single madden game and they just keep making them betterso for any gamer out there this would be a great game for you if you dont believe me go buy it yourself and see why critics have rated it 8 and 9 just look up the ratings and you will see what i am talking about so this would be a great gift for anyone even kids
Rated 7 out of 10 by TKING So So.
Well I finally gave a Wii Madden a try now that there is franchise mode and I would give it a decent overall grade. Take into account you aren't gonna get PS3 or 360 graphics before buying. I would say that Wii version really needs to allow classic or Gamecube controller controls for those of us who don't appreciate pointing the remote when trying to kickback and play a football game. Other than that if you are a football fan then you'll find a way to get into this game...it is afterall Madden. I don't know why it is only getting a 5 star rating, might have to do with over expectations which are well expected. Considering this is a MADDEN GAME and a EA sports title you should expect something great......and I think we ended up settling for Okay.
Rated 3 out of 10 by jerbel189 Not very good
This game was horrible. I got a PS3 and a Wii and between the 2, not very good. i played both of the games at my house today, i got one for my PS3 and my cousin brought the wii version. The gameplay/controls were fun but everything else not too great. I would hope nintendo will make a madden that would be like my PS3's version, that way i will buy the wii version because the gameplay is fun. I thought madden 08 was the best madden for wii, but madden 09 all play was different, and i didn't like it. Madden 10 was way different from madden 09. But Madden 11 still seems like madden 10. I just hope nintendo could make a better version for the wii, but i thought NBA 2k10 was actually pretty good, but i hope they make a better madden for Wii.
Rated 0 out of 10 Madden 11 yes!
ok i personally loved madden 10 but in franchise mode i think when your done with your first year you should actualy put in those college players for now and the rest and the fansty draft i think you should like be able to trade draft picks. And the cartoons no . Also my friends say its a little to easy i simulated it and when 17-0 with m. stafford as qb and d sproles as hb. And the game settings that AI must go its basically a easy win i know people actually want a nice challeange in a game but not to hard llike a puzzle. But i love spotlight moments that is awesome i got the qb sack one before only 1 time so plz increase that because i love them so much
Rated 0 out of 10 by MonsterHunterManiac We want change!
I have always played and enjoyed the madden series, but unfortunately the only major platform i have is a wii. I was really excited to get my copy of Madden 10, but was sad to find that EA turned into a kiddy cartoon. NEWS FLASH EA, THERE ARE STILL SERIOUS GAMERS ON THE WII THAT DON'T WANT CARTOONS. Looking at this i can see that nothing is really changing. I'm not asking for like an Xbox 360 type of game, I just want to have some level of realism in the game, much like the last good Wii madden title, Madden 08. What would also be nice is the use of the classic controller/classic controller pro. Hopefully, Madden on the Wii will become realistic again.
