Review: Madden NFL 13 for Wii

TechnologyTell
6 October 2012
  • Excerpt: I’m not entirely sure why Madden NFL 13 for Wii exists. I don’t think Electronic Arts does, either. The venerable franchise has always been a tricky release for EA as they simplify the graphics for the underpowered Wii (compared to the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions) and alter the feature set for the more casual Wii audience. EA finally got things balanced with Madden NFL 12 , and now Nintendo has muddied the field with the Wii-U.

Great pro football sim, now with concussion support.

  • Summary: Parents need to know Madden NFL 12 is a pro football simulation available for multiple consoles. There isn't much inappropriate content to be concerned about except for tackles, the animations for which often appear fairly violent. But the game no longer shows headfirst tackling and players who sustain a concussion in the game are not allowed to return to play.

Fun football sim gets facelift and expands ways to play.

Common Sense Media
5 January 2012
  • Summary: Parents need to know Madden NFL 13 is a sports simulation game reflecting professional football. Kids will see the same hard hits and tackles as they would if they were watching a live football game on TV. Parents need to be aware of the option to talk online via headset microphone with others (even strangers) in the X360 and PS3 versions. Finally, there is some consumerism in this game, with ample ESPN and EA Sports branding, and familiar apparel company logos, too.
