Summary: This game is alot of fun for my 6-year old and I to play. It teaches the user how to use design plays (offense) and counter plays (defense), time management, and learning football's rules. My only problem with the game is that the graphics are disappointing, it loads slowly, and the game "sticks" occasionally and has to be rebooted.
Summary: My grandson played Madden NFL 10 all the time and wanted something a little more challenging. The graphics are better, but for a six-year old, is a little bit harder for him to play, but he still loves it.
Summary: This Wii version is quite cool and provides simple gameplay and controls. Graphics and overall gameplay look a little dated (as compared to the 2K series), but overall we preferred this to the 2011 PS3 version.
Summary: I recently purchased the game for my 9 year old brothers. I have noticed the graphics are a bit cartoony, but I guess Wii is for kids. It pales in comparison to the xbox or ps3 versions, but is fun in its own way.
Summary: It's not a bad game at all. But, with the Wii graphics (which are cartoony) I think it would be better if they made it more of an arcade game and less of a serious game. Now, don't get me wrong. I'm a major football fan. I think this game on the ps3 or on a pc is good. But, while I like the Wii it's hard to translate Madden as a realistic game. I also have to tell you. EA Sports just phones these games in.
Summary: Madden 11 for wii has problems left and right. The awful graphics have been untouched; I don't know why but a lot of recent wii games have bad graphics. Plus you can get anywhere as a ballcarrier just by flailing around the wii remote, CPUs do that, too, once I needed four hits just to take down the ballcarier. FOUR HITS. And either Superstar is locked or EA has ditched all the good single player classic modes....except Franchise, which brings us to the improvements.
Summary: Overall, I like my older version of Madden better. Madden 11 is entertaining, but not as engaging as previous versions. It seems much more simple and definitely more "cartoony" than even other Wii versions of the game.
Summary: Although I've been playing video games since Pong, I've never played a Madden game until Wii Madden 2011. Going into it, I had lowered my expectations for the graphics compared to the other consoles, I was hopeful that the gameplay would make up for it. Unfortunately, that didn't turn out to be the case.
Slick new facade, but really nothing to write home about under the hood...

Summary: Well, at least this one isn't as disappointing as last year's utterly misguided release. The new franchise presentation looks good, but they cut out several of the tasks that have traditionally been part of franchise mode, including scouting and testing potential draftees and using the training camp mini-games to build up the attributes of a few players every preseason. Also, as far as I can tell, you can't change any player's position at any time for any reason.
