Madden NFL 09 on Wii!This football game is awesome! The best part of the game is that the controls are real simple. Football games can be designed horribly with controls that are more complicated that football itself but this game has perfect controls. For an easy to pick up Sports game this is great for your Wii Library.

This Game SUCKS!!!!This game is stupid. when you have a fantasy draft on franchise and when you go to play in play now the roster from franchise is on the teams roster. The only good part about this game is that you can challenge your friends in a trivia challenge. This game sucks on the Wii. The Wii plain out sucks too.

this could be better but it's fineThe madden 09 for the wiii was the third madden game for wii. The controls take a little bit of time to get down. Something i like in video games is the ability to make a team/person/whatever, but in this game, the only thing you can make is a rookie for the "Superstar" game. Even there, you can't choose what his hair or skin color, just his face. Also in "Superstar", my guy is a quarterback, and you can't be anyone but the quarterback (or whatever position your guy is in) unless your guy is injured or not playing. Also, you don't get to pick the play, and if your a quarterback, the coach seems to pick running plays a lot. The gameplay is okay, I can't see anything wrong with it, except that there a bunch of controls, (but you don't have to use all of them.) the sound is fine, i mean you hear grunts when you get hit or yelling plays out before the snap.Graphics are surprisingly good, not cartoonish like on newer versions, but not blocky like some of the older ones. I gave the lasting appeal a seven because there aren't many things to do, and the games get a little boring.I'd say though, if you get everything down, the game is fun. if you have a wii and like the NFL, get this game!

Stick with madden PS3/360Ok, heres some reasons why this game is not good. 1:The controls are bad. If you move the wii remote a little, then the QB passes it. 2:You really cant choose who to throw it, it just shows lights on whos open. Green light means open. Red light means covered. So you have to aim with your wii remote to throw it to. So if i move my remote to throw to the right, then sometimes it will go to the left. Making controls harder. 3:You really cant decide how high or low you wanna throw it. 4:The graphics are horrible. The PS2 graphics are better then this! This game is nothing to realstic! 5:When ever you get a Touchdown (TD), or Interception (INT), you have to shake your Wii remote to make your player dance. Which is really anoying and bad. 6:If your the away team and score a TD, or INT, the crowd will cheer for you which really poor. 7:On 5 on 5 mode, theres no pens. So you can knock the reciever down before the ball even gets near them everytime! So i dont reccomend this game for real NFL fans. This is really more of kids game, and bad. So, dont waste your money.

Hard to control, not quite worth the money'Madden NFL 09' is really just in with all of those games that are hard to control and are a bit overpriced. The controls are confusing until you play for a few days, although you can play as all the the football teams (go chiefs!) and all the players. There are also minigames you can play that are pretty fun too. All and all this is a OK game, just don't buy it if you don't usually watch and/or play football.
