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: 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: 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.
Summary: First Head Coach game for me. Interesting game play. Interface and menus load way too slow. No tutorial. Incredibly difficult to meet the owners deadlines. During the game you are ask to make risky calls in situations where you would never take risks.
