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.....I am Buying It For The PS2 and I Know I am Going To Have Loads Of Fun.....Its Just Too Bad There Wasn't Another NFL Head Coach To Follow..
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. I read through these reviews first, and I have just one thing to say: It's the attack of the ADD Generation!!!
Summary: I rented this game to see what it was like and have concluded that it is pretty much the worst game ever created! I'm sure this is a great simulation of what the life of an NFL coach is actually like, but come on! This makes coaching in the NFL seem like one of the lamest jobs in the world. I played for well over two hours and spent the majority of my time reading and trying to remember what I had read an hour ago.
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. This game is more about outsmarting everyone by building your team and becoming a successful coach in the NFL. The game begins with you creating your coach so that it may look as you choose for him to look.
Summary: After nearly 12 hours of game play I got my "first" team to training camp, before I noticed some problems. I saved often (that and the load screens took so much time) and backtracked with a few coordinator hires and did the draft twice. Finally, I realized that I could change my weekly schedule around (except for office time and meetings). This was a great feature for practices, especially more WR/DB drills to help out my rookie QB stats.
Good for Those Who Love Football, but Great for Those Who Also Love to Read and Read and Read

Summary: I'd been looking forward to NFL Head Coach since I first read about it several months ago. After maxing out my Madden skills, I found myself rushing through each season of my dynasty just to get to the draft and free agency. I loved seeing my team take shape year to year, patting myself on the back when my vision paid off and muttering when I had to discard my busts to the waiver wire.
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. I knew I was in trouble when I was interviewd for the head coach position of the Oakland Raiders and expected to be across the table from "The GodFather", Al Davis. But no, some guy names "Marquis" with a white beard. Not good.
