For its fourth appearance on Wii, Madden NFL 10 offers a revamped presentation and new modes of play. Stylized athletes feature exaggerated shoulders and other cartoon-like features, while "spotlight moments" take a cinematic approach to the action with dramatic camera angles and slow-motion movement emphasizing key plays. Once again the star attraction is the distinctive control scheme, which uses gesture-based motions for throwing, running, and catching. Coaching your team can be as simple or as complex as you want it to be, with three levels of playbook settings.
Returning from 2008's game is the ability to assign routes on offense simply by pointing the Wii Remote to different areas of the field, only now you can use it for your defense as well. Team up with a friend in the new "Huddle" co-op mode, which has the second player aiming a pointer to block, trip up a receiver, and contribute in other helpful ways. "Road to the Super Bowl" lets you work together with friends to guide your favorite team through a 16-game season, while "Madden Showdown" is a four-player tournament mode with a choice of five-on-five or 11-on-11 games. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
