i guess no sports games on the Wii can look real?

dude, is it just me or does everybodys legs look SUPER skinny..?

so lame, last year's looked better

Posted by AndrewB

Uggg... the art style makes the graphics look worse than way back in Madden 2000. With the super-deformed characters, I actually prefer Madden 2000's graphics. At least then you had the comical shoulder spinning and ball "physics."

Lol. Wii games/commercials are so awkward.

I don't see how making all the players look deformed in the upper bodies will help sell copies. For some reason EA has been adamant in making sure that all the Madden games on the Wii after the original 07 were getting worse and worse. This just looks ugly. Guess no new madden for me this year.

I'm seriously starting to get mad that I fell into the Wii bandwagon? Seriously, this is our next Madden title? Not only are they all deformed, but doesn't it looks like its got even worse collision detection.

That looks awful.....

Is it me or did madden 05 for the xbox look better than this.  I know the wii is underpowered but this is just sad.

Amazing graphics I must say.

lol, games on the Dreamcast looks better than that.

I don't understand all the hate on this.

I think it looks fine (though maybe a little bland) and I'm glad they're doing something with it to seperate it from the 360/PS3 versions.

Really, if you want a realistic regular Madden, you would be better served playing it on the other consoles anyway.

Another shining example of why the Wii is a phail.

It looks like EA gave the character creation to a bunch of 12 year olds and told them to move the sliders as much as they could in a minute

Thank god they didn't do this to Tiger Woods 10. I'm still going to buy Madden 09 for the Wii when it goes down in price.

I like how psyched the crowd was in trailer, so there's a good point to the game.

It's not sizzling enough.

Posted by LordAndrew

The controls should be enough to separate it from the other versions. It's worked in the past.

Bang Camaro is sizzling.

Bang Camaro?!?!
whoa, my mind has just been blown...

Anyways, I like what they're trying to do with stylized graphics and simplified controls... but I think it just doesn't work nowadays...

We've come far from Tecmo Bowl... and people expect a certain quality... even though Tecmo Bowl is, like... the shit.

I agree, I don't understand the hate either. Well, actually, I do understand it. I feel like they are actually starting to put effort into making the Wii titles unique, and doing a pretty good job of it at that. In addition, with motion plus, it could really turn out to be a winner. However, the people who don't own a Wii and chose to buy a 360 or a PS3 over the Wii, which was their opportunity cost (assuming they only had enough money to buy one console) in respect to having to accept that they passed up the advantages of the Wii to enjoy the superior graphics on the other consoles, respond to this by saying it sucks and it's inferior just because the graphics style is different. In turn, they are ignoring the potential of motion plus and unique controls for this title. This is so they can justify their purchases of the current consoles they own, done in an attempt to avoid buyers remorse.

If you own a Wii, I don't know what to tell you. Maybe be more tolerant of different art styles and don't judge a book by it's cover?

Anyways, looks pretty good, might be worth checking out! Looking forward to see how responsive the controls will be. In addition, I actually think this is a good graphics style for the Wii. A more cartooney look is easier to pull off and requires less resources, while still remaining relatively pleasing to the eye.

@LordAndrew

True, but the normal graphics just look pretty bad on the Wii.  At least these seem to look clean.

Posted by Haethos

graphics look terrible (as usual on the wii) and the gameplay looks like madden 2005. not interested at all

Posted by JCrothers--defunct

Posted by Media_Master

No.

@ Renegade

Motion controls are not better than a standard controller unless you're not actualy a gamer eg. my sister

@nail1080

I don't recall ever saying that. In fact, no, I did not say that at all. Thanks for bringing up a completely invalid counter-argument, awesome work.
