Madden 2010 News Post



June 22, 2009—This year, Madden NFL 10 arrives on the Wii with breath-taking visuals that will captivate both seasoned veterans and new comers to the franchise. Completely redesigned and built from the ground up, Madden NFL 10 epitomizes what fun looks like on the Wii, delivering the most social and dynamic experience from the franchise to date.

Invite a friend over to play co-op in Road to the Super Bowl or gather a group at your party to play Madden Showdown. Get together with friends and crown a “King of the Couch” during your pre-game tailgate party or during halftime. Quick, exciting game modes ensure that anytime is the right time for Madden NFL 10 on the Wii.

MADDEN SHOWDOWN

Madden Showdown is a 1-4 player tournament. Enjoy classic 11-on-11 football or experience the thrill of playing 5-on-5 in this quick, customizable competition, as you and your friends go head-to-head in an effort to become the next Showdown Champion.

There are three major feature components to Madden Showdown:
  • Game Changers
  • Prediction System
  • Spotlight Moments

Game Changers
The rules of NFL football have remained largely the same for many years with little to no deviation. Game Changers allows you to change all of that with a click of the Wiimote. Users can mix and match between eight different options, each placing a unique spin on the game.
  • All Passing Plays
    o If three yards and a cloud of dust just isn’t for you, then turn this option on and never look back.
  • All Running Plays
    o You’ll be pounding through the tackles and running for daylight on every play if you choose this option.
  • Fumblitits
    o Everyone gets a bad case of the butter fingers when you turn this option on.
  • Invisibility
    o Keep your eyes peeled because you never know when the player lined up across from you might just disappear!
  • It’s Alive
    o You can thank your coach for drilling the concept of “keep playing until the whistle blows” into your head, because in this mode the play might not be over when you think it is.
  • Random
    o Pick this option and you’ll never know what you’re going to get from one game to the next.
  • Tug of War
    o You only have one play to advance the ball before turning it over to your opponent, so make the most of it!
  • Turbo Mode
    o For those impatient types, this option will finally get the game of football caught up to your speed.
Prediction System
Winning on the field isn’t everything. The prediction system gives you a chance to predict the outcome of three different categories per game. To top it off, you have the option to risk your points in order to get ahead. If you win, it will positively affect your ranking in the tournament. If you lose, your poor decision-making could cost you the lead or dig you into a deeper hole.

You will be asked to predict:
  • The Winning Team
As well as one of the following:
  • Coin Flip
  • First Team to Score
  • First Quarterback Sack
  • Last Team to Score
  • Longest Field Goal
  • Longest Pass
  • Longest Run
  • Most Extra Points
  • Most Field Goal Attempts
  • Most First Downs
  • Most Passing Attempts
  • Most Passing Completions
  • Most Passing Yards
  • Most Rushing Attempts
  • Most Rushing Yards
  • Most Sacks
  • Most Tackles
  • Most Time of Possession
  • Most Third Down Conversions
  • Most Total Yards
  • Most Two Point Conversions
  • Most Yards After Catch
  • Overtime
  • Total Combined Points
Spotlight Moments
Experience the drama of game-changing plays with Spotlight Moments. During critical situations, cameras move in tight and gameplay slows down to allow you to influence the biggest plays of the game. During these moments, micro-games are created that allow players of all skill levels to experience and influence the game’s most crucial moments.
  • Open Field Tackle
    o Break or shake a tackle for a big gain.
  • Battle for the Ball
    o On the deep attack, battle for possession of the ball while it’s in the air.
  • Sprint to the End Zone
    o Beat the defender to the end zone for the touchdown.
  • Sack Attack
    o Buy the QB more time to throw by avoiding incoming defenders.

They're actually already with Disney (ESPN).

Overall, this looks like a pretty fun game to play. I just don't think that this is a game for the Hardcore or SIM gamers.

Considering people who only buy the Wii version of Madden are probably not hardcore fans or are 7, This mode will appeal to them. People who only have a Wii are not hardcore gamers, therefore they will not want to play a hardcore Madden.

My GF bought me a Wii for christmas and the only time I use it is when she spends the weekends at my place or when I play some gamecube maddens or ncaa's. I had madden 09 on the wii and it was just too hard playing a football game with 2 controllers in your hand.

Nice pics and info. I am thinking of getting madden for my little nephew wii he just bought. I might try it out myself. But I am getting 360 version as my main version.

Obviously most of the posters here haven't actually played Madden on the Wii. While it does incorporate modes that are clearly family-friendly and, (gasp) non-hardcore, the more hardcore advanced options are still available if the player wants to use them.

23.5 million Wii's sold in the US to date versus 17 million PSP's. There's your answer.

The game looks awful. Too cartoonish looking.

They oughta show this after the final whistle:

Agreed. There are the "kiddie modes" for sure, but there's also your regular franchise mode and pretty much anything else you'd find in the PS2 version of Madden. Madden on Wii actually plays a good game of football once you get used to the control scheme.

If I decide to get rid of my 360 and go with a Wii, I know I'd get this game, or at least some version of Madden (I think 07 might be the best).

Did I say "cartoonish equals awful?" How about not putting words into people's mouth. I could've gone into greater detail about more reasons it looks bad but had no interest in it.

Anyway, If I wanted to watch cartoons, I'll watch cartoons; Not buy Madden.

Even my 7-year old makes fun of how terrible this game looks.

wow, nice 7 year old.
nice traits of basic manners and respect he has.
we wonder why kids are out of control these days.

when i was 7, i disrespect, i get a mouthful of palm skin.
these days it gets chest puffed on a video game message board.


in any event, the people complaining bout that madden on wii sucks and that they wouldnt play it, weren't u the same ones bailing out on 09 and 08 on the ps360 versions and heading back to play the 'better' ps2 version, which is the SAME engine as the wii versions.
 
# 14 boooey @ 06/23/09 02:10 PM
I think that game looks really fun.. at least those devs didn't just put out the same ole Madden game for the Wii, which they easily could have.

They know their audience, and they actually tried some new, fresh, and exciting things to make the game more enjoyable, and not get boring so fast.

I like it!

Those EA devs seemed like a cool bunch of guys too.

Wow...Since when is a kid not liking a video game "disrespectful?" or not liking a video game "is out of control."

Too bad you had to get abused to remain in line.

Pretty judgemental post considering you don't know a thing about me or my family.

Seek a higher level.

This thread has turned into another argument.
 
# 17 skudplayr @ 06/23/09 02:41 PM
Oh, and my ex had Wii and she bought me Madden 07 on it. Never really played it since I had 07 on Xbox1 as well. Wii was just really confusing with regards to the controls and it felt less realistic than old gen madden. Graphics weren't special either.
