Madden NFL 07 Review

There was a new console released recently and, to no one

The look of Madden is essentially the same as the Gamecube version. The visuals are far from clean and lack punch in their appearence.

The controls take the game you

In what I hope was a conscious decision by EA, Madden feels a bit ‘looser’ on the Wii than in any other version of the game this year. It seems like the game is playing on a bigger-than-standard field, allowing what seems like more time to get things done. Along with the looser play, the game seems a bit faster as well, only adding to the fun of the control and the gameplay. It
