Any surprises in the manual? Any mention of being able to play with the Wii remotes instead of the tablet?

Of course, the Wii Madden 13 manual says you can play online, so having it in writing is not proof of anything, and we won't know anything for sure until Sunday.

BTW, we all know that even the Xbox/PS3 people are not too pleased with Madden 13. Check out the best review of a video game I think I've ever seen

I got it earlier this week! There's no manual. Just an insert that says, "Access the manual online at https://help.ea.com/tag/manuals. Thank you for supporting our efforts to significantly reduce paper in our products."

Of course, when you go to that URL, the manual isn't available; in fact, there isn't even a Wii U section at all yet.

Can't wait until my console arrives next week!

Thanks for the info. Not very encouraging, though. So no one will really know what is in the game until Sunday.

And, yeah right, they can't even print that cheat-sheet they call a manual because they are so concerned about the environment!

Though I could see some advantage to having the manual available right on the gamepad while playing the game.

Just got it up and running. Yes you can use the wiimote and nunchuck instead of the game pad.
Yes there is online, when I first got on there were 20 users on. Graphics are up to par with Xbox/PS3

I'm loving it, especially since I can use my favorite controller with the wiimote/nunchuck

This is definitely the Madden that I'll be playing this year. MJALLDAY, how are the playbooks? Are they the same or different from M12 Wii?

I'll probably get it soon, but not immediately. I should have it by the end of the year, maybe as a present during the holidays or I might get the money together to buy it for myself. Madden is pretty much the only game I play.

Its a big step up from the Wii maddens. I am still getting acclimated to the new controls and play style.

Woohoo! Does it have point-to-pass controls, or only gesture controls! Either way this is much better than I expected

Thanks for making my day!

I'd wanna get it but I won't even have the funds to buy it for a while.
Also the infinity engine has gotten bad reviews so I guess EA accidentally did a good thing by leaving it out of the Wii U. Infinity Engine is referred to by PS3/XBox360 gamers as totally bunk.

I played the 360 version once and I liked the game The new engine is awesome in my opinion Tackles and animation are better than the pre-set ones. I think the people that are saying bad things about it, probably thought all the stuff would be fixed from the old stuff.
