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.
Summary: The Head Coach game had alot of hype. But it's not as good as you would think because they have the right ideas for the game but they didn't exacute them well. Like Madden does every thing perfectly from the free agency to the scouting. But for the head coach thing they have it so it's challengeing to do it.
Summary: I was so excited to get this, and I was very disappointed. It is really hard to get through, and takes forever. However, I believe it is a great start, and could become a great title in the future. I'd wait for Madden, and check out NFL Head Coach '07.

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.
