The game would be better if there were an online multiplayer mode -- or at least support for local wireless play -- but even as a single-player football game, Madden NFL Football delivers the goods. Between the tight controls, smart A.I., 3D graphics, and multiple game modes, EA Sports' latest pro football game is a blast for fans of the sport. The optional Arcade mode makes the game faster and more exciting, but purists might want to stick to the Classic mode for a truer NFL experience. Drawing offensive or defensive plays on the touchscreen with a stylus pen or finger is great for those who want more depth, but those who'd rather spend more time on the field can opt for the GameFlow feature that automatically selects the best play for the situation. In short, this game is a treat for football fanatics who scooped up a new Nintendo 3DS system.
