Mini-games are worthwhile and 5-on-5 Mode makes you feel like you are playing NFL Blitz and its especially fun with multi-player. One thing I miss is the old Nintendo64 version has an In-Helmt camera view---I'd love that again, though I haven't been able to find a mode like that yet.....if its there or not. My one pet peeve about this game is that you can create a profile and set your preferences for play calling, pass control, etc,....but when you power up the game it will stick with the defaults unless you explicitly load your profile which only happens when you choose an online game or perhaps some other ways.....if you jump right into the mini-games or the 5-on-5 it is unclear how to get back to the preferences you always want.... Its worth mentioning that I do like the call your own shot buttons THOUGH you have to be careful when playing people online, because they may have found plays that are almost indefensible, especially if they have powerful teams...There was one guy who threw wide out swing passes to Chris Johnson who would always make at least 20 yeards a play. Anyway, I had been needing to buy a Madden for my Wii, and I'm glad I will forever be able to choose a Viking Team helmed by Brett Favre with Adrian Peterson and with DE Jared Allen. I couldn't ask for better bodies to play virtual football in!!!
