Take this image as a for instance. This is the pass block drill. Haven't gotten through it once without the quarterback running past the receiver I'm supposed to defend and throwing the ball backwards into me. Kinda makes it easy to defend passes
Only thing is, if the QB gets into the end zone the console locks up and you get sucked into the ground while being treated to the most lovely buzzing noise ever.
Long story short, avoid Madden 08 like the plague.
If you don;t need online play, Madden 07 wuld be better for budget conscious football on the Wii.
Will say though, that 08 is a slightly better looking game than 09, but 09 trumps it in gameplay.
Why couldn't EA have the same, slightly more detailed grass/stadiums on 09 as they did 08?
I kinda hope that the eventual Madden 2010 for Wii ditches some of the All Play business/minigame stuff (fun & nice features - but not needed for serious players) & gives us a more detailed football game.
Yeah...I could just get a 360 & Madden, but I do like the Wii controls for this game over traditional button mashing. Strip Madden Wii down to the core game & you could conceivabley have a football sim to really rival the "big boys".
