    With a few key adjustments to play-calling, frame-rate, and physics, it's possible that the Wii U could host the most interesting Madden version next fall. In the meantime, Madden's debut on Nintendo's brand-new system is good for a bit of fun but won't last for the long term.

    Suffice it to say, if you're a Madden NFL fan and you own a Wii U, this is definitely a title you're going to want to at least consider adding to your game library.

    Madden on Wii U isn't superlative this year, but I would keep an eye on this series; the potential is there, it just hasn't been fully tapped.

After renting this one (Thank you Albertson's Video) the first thing I discovered was the one thing that made this Madden stand out on the 360 and made it the best Madden in years, the animation engine is not here. Instead they used last years canned animations. After a few hours of play, I took it back and rented Tekken Tag instead. Pass on this til EA decides to give you the game you deserve or pick it up on 360/PS3. Full Review »

The ability to draw your plays is such a nice touch to the franchise. I had the chance to play just for a little bit and I had fun in that short time. Graphics are great just like xbox360 and ps3. Definitely check it out and see it for yourself. Full Review »

    The gamepad implementation is the best part of Madden 13. It changes how you scheme and play against other players. Lack of Infinity EngineThe gamepad implementation is the best part of Madden 13. It changes how you scheme and play against other players. Lack of Infinity Engine keeps this game from being better.
