  1. Controls aside for a second: the breadth of detail is stunning.

    It's good stuff, but rather than being intuitive it takes a lot of getting used to. Well worth a punt, though. [Feb 2007, p.84]
  3. The overall complexity of the game will immediately turn off the more casual players who were attracted by the control scheme. The hardcore Madden players will most likely prefer one of the more traditional console versions because of precision issues with the gestures.

    The pick-up-and-play impressions started out positive, but as I spent more time with it, the less I enjoyed the novelty and just wished I could play good football... It's all in the game on the field, and with a defense that's allowing old-school, Hail Mary money plays pretty much at will, this doesn't cut it.

    The developers should have spent more time fine-tuning the controls. [Jan. 2007, p.60]

The wii controls work well and all, but it wasnt nearly as fun as madden 06. I would suggest madden 08 over this game any day. Full Review »

    Makes the current football games much easier to play, and I like that. I think I'm starting to tire on the Madden game in general though.
