Summary: Jury is still out on this game for me. I've owned the game for a week now. Created my own coach and it gives you a rating on the level of difficulty for that particular team. You can start in the 2008 preseason or being at training camp. I always elect the offseason.
Summary: This is a very nice game for the PS3. However, if you're looking for amazing graphics, or light gameplay, I wouldn't recommend it. The major downside for me is that it is a VERY hard challenge. I mean, frustrating hard, not rewarding hard.
Summary: When I saw the features list for Head Coach 09, I got excited. Most of this stuff (that they refuse to put in Madden for some reason) is great, and I think this is the most realistic and truest to life Football game made. That being said, It has major flaws.
Summary: You really must be a die hard football fan to enjoy this game. I can see the potential for a limited crowd to enjoy this, but it requires quite a bit of patience and dedication to become fully involved.
