Rated 0 out of 10 by Moose Look EA, lots of things need to happen here.
I'll start with saying that Madden 12 was fine. But too many things were left out. First off: Superstar. Can they please at least try to bring that back? Don't they know everyone loved that? Second: Graphics. I don't know who enjoys the cartoony graphics, and they need to stop. Third: Enhance Franchise mode. The bidding system was fine, but you can't control the year length. And the create-a-team thing was in early versions like 07, why did they take that away? Correct me if I'm wrong please, but I think PS3 and Xbox have that. Also the Draft is not good anymore, and they should also take away the fact that if you have a single bad year, you're on the hot seat. And there's no training camp or preseason. All in all, make this game a little more like the PS3 and/or Xbox versions, and for goodness' sake, the graphics are awful. The gamecube versions have better graphics.

I got this years Madden on Release day 8/28, I couldn't wait. I had such big expectations for this game that I kinda forgot this is still a Wii game... With that being said, the Game Play is solid. The same old basic tackles are gone and have been replaced with more realistic tackling. It flows very smoothly along with the New Commentary. The Graphics (though being Wii Graphics) are pretty good. The lighting effects (Sun Light & Shadows) are impressive for Wii. The one thing I absolutely am outraged by is the fact that there are NO SONGS AT ALL in the new game. Previous Maddens have featured good songs from notable artists, but now you get nothing... Also, there is no longer Online play (Does Feature Roster Updates). So Overall this game has some upgrades from previous Maddens on Wii, but does have some notable setbacks. Now Go Buy this Game!!!
Rated 0 out of 10 by Matty The next generation of football to be told
I'm going to say it once. I am a big fan of football. I'm especially a big fan of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. I won a superbowl with them against the Chicago Bills in Madden NFL 2005, and in Madden NFL 2012, I won four superbowls against the Oakland Raiders once, the New England Patriots once, and the Denver Broncos twice while using the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Now I know some of you might start saying, "Oh! The Buccaneers suck in real life," or," I'm rooting for the Buccaneers to not win another superbowl against the Rams or whoever they faced off against in 2002," but I don't care. I'm still going to play as them, even in Madden NFL 2013. Now Madden has progressed since the time of the NES to the time of the 3DS. I have Madden NFL 2005 on my Gamecube, and I have Madden NFL 2012 on my Wii. I wasn't in the time of the NES. In fact, I was born in January 30, 1998 in Massachussetts. I'm still rooting for the Bucs cause they drafted one of the best players over to their team, and I think they have a good chance at making the Wild Card division and going into the playoffs. I evenn think they might win the Superbowl. But still, I'm lokking forward to getting Madden NFL 2012.
Rated 6 out of 10 by maddenfan555 its no nfl simulation but fun
I own madden 07 and 08 for wii. If you want nfl sim game for the wii 07 is your best considering 08 has some serious in game camera glitches and is basicly a slightly higher resolution 07 with less gameplay options, music, mini games etc.. that being said madden 13 has much better gameplay than both of them with slightly less cartoonish game models than 12( if u played 12 u will apreciate the model changes however slight they may be). The game has no online mode and its menus and overall accomplishments are much less spectacular than 12. The gameplay is virtualy the same with new announcers which get old and repetitive real fast. The games value is in its casual 11-11 or 5-5 modes great for pre-game partys.i
Rated 5 out of 10 by CLAXP Good early on, Long term not so much.
My first Madden for the Wii and overall I like it. The graphics are what you come to expect, and the gameplay and flow is good. Only thing I don't like is that there are to many "incompletes" that should be interceptions. Franchise is nice but I like to play football, I don't want to sit there and count money, ticket prices, etc. so a "season mode" or "ultimate team" would've definitely boosted this into a solid 8. Also, the mini camp, why not have the features for all types of controls. That's just being lazy. I personally like the classic so that's a big one for me. I'm having fun with it now but I don't see myself playing this a month or two down the road.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Dave74 graphics
the only thing i think that they need for madden 13 is better graphics, thats all i want !!! The free agent bidding gets rid of the days were you can sign a free agent for a one year, no signing bonus and trade him for a first round pick so it makes it more realistic, and you can't control the amount of years your signing him for so thats not that cool, so some times i want the free agent bidding and sometimes i don't want it. But the most important thing for me is the graphics even if they aren't totally realistic i just wish they weren't so arcade looking!
Rated 0 out of 10 by DunlogginDragons2 dont try to make it cartoon
don't try to make this game cartoon like 10,11,and 12. its okay if its graphics are bad as long as there not purposely cartoon. also bring back the hall of fame version. for we only ( until its confirmed as a good choice.) make a mode where you can create a whole team ,create the jerseys,stadium,and players individually like they were made in create a player in 2012. then allow those teams in the play now quick play. for on-line play make it so it counts as a loss if you quit.
Rated 1 out of 10 by 0617 I HATE IT!!!!!!!!!!!
Madden NFL 13 on the wii is GARBAGE!!! I played it at my friends house. It was worse than the gamecube. Ill tell u what EA needs to change. 1. Graphics (They've been cartoony since 10) 2. Franchise mode ( The ONLY Madden 13 with franchise mode but i dont think if u have 1 bad year your on the hot seat) 3. Road 2 the super bowl. (Love the multiplayer game but i dont like the benching) If you're looking for a good madden on the wii. Get Madden 07,08 and 09.
Rated 0 out of 10 by mkathol158 looks better than 12
Look, 12 was o.k. the problem with madden with wii is that they get one thing really good and the rest is terrible. Like madden 11. graphics were amazing, but the gameplay was terrible. Like madden 12 the gameplay and celebration and hall of fame was amazing, and then the graphics were like cartoonish. I'm just saying, why cant they get everything amazing. But ya i am still sycked for madden 13.
