Summary: THIS IS NOT A VIDEO GAME, first of all. And to make matters worse, EA didn't even bother to get permission from the NFL owners, so the names of the owners on this game are fictitious. Stupid. THAT'S NOT EVEN BILL COWER ON THE COVER! It's a cheap imposter...that right there should tell you something... Just another attempt by EA Games to squeeze a few more dollars out of the saps who are crazy about football.
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.... THIS IS EA SPORTS!! The same guys who've knocked it out of the park for years with MADDEN and TIGER WOODS. How, could it go wrong. Then, a friend of mine at Blockbuster warned me...
Summary: the most boring game I have ever played. Overly complicated. Absolutely nothing fun or interesting about it. Took all of the tiedious aspects of any Madden game and put them into one time consuming disaster. Save your money.
Summary: What a waste. I never even made it to the game. I spent 2 hours trying to find coaches and get a team together. Not near as much info as Madden's off season screens. You cant see more than one attribute at a time.Way to much "talk" on screen. Slow as hell. Madden's off season mode is great. They just needed this with some graphics and a few extra options. Too bad. Who wants to spend hours and hours to work thru an off season menu thats boring.
Summary: I really thought that this game would be better. I liked the interview system, but with the mind-numbingly long load times and time waster "office time" it was just too much. I took it back the next day.
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.
