Run for it!

After a few attempts to create next-gen visuals on the Wii, Electronic Arts has finally come to its senses and has given the latest version of Madden NFL a light-hearted visual sheen.

The new shots show the unique caricatured players, which the developer promises will boast amusing animations and exaggerated movements.

While some fans will accuse EA of 'dumbing down' this long-running series, we quite like the new style and think it looks a damn sight better than previous titles, which basically looked like the 360/PS3 version 'downsized' for the less powerful Wii.

The game is due for release in the US this August.
