    This game has everything that was promised and even more fun than expected for most.

    This is a great sports game on Wii but a little bit more control in the gameplay department could have brought this game to greater heights. I'm going to start out saying the good points of the game. ...

    Madden 08 really puts you in the game, as you are supposed to. As soon as you play, people who have and haven't played 07, should look at every detail of the controls. I always start out with a good ...

    DO NOT BUY UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES

    Rated on August 14, 2007 by EmperorIng

    EA left out many features on the Wii, very buggy, very slow, and lackluster presentation. What happened to Front Office mode that I heard about? My Shrine? Franchise and Superstar are completely un...

    A game with a lot of potential but that ultimately disappoints. Coulda, woulda, shoulda. Rent before you buy.

    Rated on August 15, 2007 by ojharvey

    Flashes of new and innovative game play, moments of great design, a desire to want to love this game but I can't. I like it, it can be fun, but I can't quite recommend it to others when I know how go...

    Football with the Wii control scheme still offers a very entertaining experience, next year lets make it look good too!

    Rated on August 15, 2007 by MarioMellow

    Last year when I played it, I was in awe of how fun it was to play on the Wii. I overlooked the graphics and just figured they'd fix it this year. They didn't. Now I know the Wii isn't the graphic pow...
