NFL Head Coach Review (Xbox)

28 September 2006
  • Conclusion: EA In the end, NFL Head Coach is a decent game but it certainly isn’t going to appeal to everyone. It all really boils down to how much control you want to have in your games. If you don’t mind sitting back and watching the AI play football for you, and you also are a fan of the deeper micro-management aspects of simulations or RPGs, then NFL Head Coach will be right up your alley.

The Armchair Empire
7 August 2006
  • Excerpt: Every big sports fan has these thoughts at least once in their life of rooting for their favorite team: What would it be like if I was the head coach? How hard could it be to run a team? Well, Electronic Arts has the game to answer those questions with its new NFL Head Coach, the first real football “coaching” simulation. EA’s Madden series has one of the best franchise modes around for any sports title.

The Gamers Temple
1 August 2006
  • Excerpt: Sports management sims have been around for quite some time for PCs, but until now video gamers have had to settle for the franchise mode in their favorite sports games. With the release of NFL Head Coach, video gamers can now have a true sports sim to call their own. You’ll need to negotiate salaries, sign free agents, draft new players, and put together a winning football team.

NFL Head Coach (Xbox) Review

10 July 2006
  • Summary: What a let down. The only words of encouragement that I can offer to you people, is that this is the first game of the franchise. And that it can only get better from this point. Right?

NFL Head Coach Review

21 June 2006
  • Excerpt: Sports-management simulations aren't exactly a hot item among North American audiences these days. Some of the more dedicated sports fans have taken to any of the assorted menu-based managers available for the PC, and in Europe, multiple publishers have turned their popular soccer franchises into successful management simulations on both the PC and consoles, but over here, most fans have been satisfied with a new franchise mode in Madden every year, and little else.
  • Pros: Dozens of hours of gameplay to be found in the career mode, a solid, easy-to-navigate interface, good use of the Madden engine for on-field action
  • Cons: Heavy emphasis on micromanagement is going to drive some people crazy, on-field artificial intelligence gets wonky in spots, motivation component is entirely unpredictable, multiplayer is not fun
