    Way way to slow. Madden 10 I have to say is pretty sloppy on Xbox and Wii. The franchise mode is terrible and the gameplay is crappy, madden moments is pretty cool though.

    The usual detractors will claim nothing has changed, but this is as close to a revolutionary shift in direction that Madden has received in nine years. And it works.

    It's pretty standard. Not much different from all of the other games. The multiplayer is pretty bad because you will get disconnected from lobbies too much and it's not too enjoyable. I also don't like you can't play 2v2. The superstar mode is just horrible. My ego is always big headed and they will start you as a starter even if you're a rookie, which I suppose would be funner than notIt's pretty standard. Not much different from all of the other games.

My ego is always big headed and they will start you as a starter even if you're a rookie, which I suppose would be funner than not playing at all. It's just not really too realistic. It's an OK football game and probably the best for it's time, but not very good. It's a buy if you want a football game, but it's far from amazing. Expand

    Great game. Definitely better than 09 and the earlier games. Movement is good, the overall flow of the game is good. There is some issues with the momentum and how you can go for a tackle facing the opposite direction and it will teleport your character to the ball carrier sometimes. Great game overall.

    Madden 10 is over all the best madden ever, but playing against the computer in madden mode is a complete joke!!!!!!! wide receivers can't catch the computer intercepts almost ever throw!!! it totally ridiculous

    This is a very fun, fast paced, action packed game, but not your typical shoot'em action. It is very fun, but there are little features from the previous maddens that bring this down a little like just giving your character stats instead of playing the game and seeing how good the PLAYER is. The superstar menu is boring just like a regular menu and doesn't have the little things likeThis is a very fun, fast paced, action packed game, but not your typical shoot'em action.

The superstar menu is boring just like a regular menu and doesn't have the little things like personas or pro-bowl ballots. The multiplayer doesn't work either because EA is to cheap to keep anything up for long. I bet they're preparing to shut down Battlefield Bad Company 2' s servers down right now, which is still a really good game. Expand

    In my previous review, I bashed this installment. mentioning it was better than the Wii version, but not by much. I based that review purely on the Superstar mode, which I still believe isn't the best. But after playing franchise mode, I take back everything I said about the game. It really brings you back to the old Madden. (Old as in 2004-2008) It's very Nostalgic to long time playersIn my previous review, I bashed this installment. mentioning it was better than the Wii version, but not by much.

    Madden NFL 10 doesn’t redefine the series or innovate in any monumental way, but that doesn’t stop it from being a truly great football game.
  2. In the end Madden 10 is the kind of game that I am willing to look past the shortcomings because what’s good is really, really good. It’s worth putting up with the faults in order to experience what works.

    There's a noticeable focus on keeping you actively involved in the game and it's an effort that succeeds in spades.
