Not really. It has a few quirks that show up about 2% of the time, which is unexescusable on EA's part, but the games controls overall are quite good. It takes more time to learn than just a rental, just like Madden Wii.

Gee I wonder how many would be sold if they weren't purposely crippling the supply lines to retailers and holding back finished consoles? :rolleyes:

/sarcasm

Unfortunately, this has led to a lot of catalog mining. Previous-gen PS2 and Xbox games like Ubisoftís "Blazing Angels" and "Prince of Persia" were gussied up with Wii Remote controls and then shoved out the door to capitalize on the systemís momentum.

This is my major fear about the Wii. But...

After Ubisoft, Electronic Arts is the next major third-party developer to redirect resources to the Wii. Not only has the gaming giant set up Wii-dedicated development teams, but within the last month, EA has released no fewer than three Wii titles: "SSX Blur," "The Godfather: Blackhand Edition," and "Tiger Woods PGA Tour 07."

...this brings a little promise, even if it is EA and EA is the devil. :p
