Madden NFL 10 :: Wii Game Review
It's football season once more! EA is back in action with this year's Madden game for the Wii, featuring new gameplay modes that make this a true All-Play game!
Madden NFL 10 is the third Madden football game released for the Wii and it has come a long way since then. The latest version of the game has better controls, better gameplay options, and brand new modes.
"All-Play" is a Great Play
The most exciting feature about Madden NFL 10 is all the new extra game modes. There is Huddle Up, where a second player can help out the first player by knocking down opposing football players with the Wiimote pointer, and there is also Road to the Super Bowl, where all the players playing for the same team as they try to get through the season and win the Super Bowl.
The best new mode by far, however, is Madden Showdown, where up to fours players compete for points by winning matches and by betting points. The bets ensure that every game is exciting, even if you are not playing the match-up directly. As well, Madden Showdown games have fun and weird settings like "It's Alive", where the ball is still in play even after it hits the ground, and Invisibility, where random players go invisible at different times.
As well, the popular 5 on 5 game setting from the last game is now available for all modes, along with the regular 11 on 11 option, which goes a long way in keeping the game fun and dynamic.
Super Bowl Caliber
Madden NFL 10 does many things better than Madden 2009 and it is definitely worthwhile to trade in your old copy for this game. Most of the controls for the game has been improved, making the game easier to pick up and play, and new additions, like the extra modes and Calling Your Shots on defense, makes sure that the game remains deep enough for serious players while still fun for the whole family.
