Summary: This game should have been the best game ever for me, its mission is exactly what I am looking for. But the execution was beyond awful. Head Coach 09 is very good - still has some warts but closer to the vision.
Summary: I bought this product for my son who loves the game. However, I bought it used and it keeps freezing up in the middle of the game. I am not disappointed with my purchase in that I pretty much bought it for just shipping but it lends to the old addage "you get what you pay for."
Summary: All The Negativity ...This Game In My Opinion Is A Different Approach To What We Have Already Seen (Madden,and those older titles on older consoles) I Had This For The PC and I Enjoyed This Game It Has Glitches and Bugs But What Game Doesn't....
Summary: I've only had this game for a short while, but am buying a copy for my brother, as we're both serious football junkies. He's at the stage now where every game of Madden he plays is an 80-point blowout - time to move on.
Summary: I was really looking forward to this game because I play Madden in "sim mode" all the time because I like the strategy aspect of the game more so than I like the "video game" aspect. I was in for a big surprise, however.
Summary: Man was I excited about this game! I love coaching and I actually love all the behind the scenes things that go on. Motivating players. Hiring players and coaches. Watching budgets. Organizing practices. Calling plays. I was so excited, I very nearly just bought the game. I mean....
Summary: Head coach is a new game that is solely based around the life of a head coach. If you like strategy games and love football, this game will be for you. This game may not be for everyone though. It is basically the epitome of all behind-the-scenes tactics in football.
Summary: I see the game is getting crappy reviews. I got to say I have had a ball with it. Interviewing new coaches is pretty frustrating, and your Scouting Director is an idiot, that I will admit. I find it refreshing not to have to control the players during the game.
