Summary: I ordered this particular game as a Xmas gift for my grandson.....his request. I found out--after Xmas---that the game that was in the case was not the right one...it was a Hockey Game. This was a disappointment. So now I have to purchase the game again. This is the only time I have been disappointed.
Summary: I bought this game to do a career mode and bring up a player to draft into Madden 10. Just like I did on 08. But this version is awful. It now is changed to a "road to glory" mode where you have NO control over anything. An imaginary coach calls plays for you and you do what it tells you. I have watched my team punt in the red zone, and then we were on the 50 with 16 seconds left and down one possession and the coach says we're gonna run a draw up the middle?!
Summary: NCAA Football has been my favorite game for years, but this year's game just ruined it for me. While EA only marginally improved graphics and gameplay, the completely botched rosters make NCAA 10 WORSE THAN NCAA 09. In NCAA 09, you could count on reasonably accurate rosters, even for teams that weren't top 25.
Summary: Please don't buy this game. It's not worth the toll it's going to take on your sanity, blood pressure, game controllers that you'll want to throw, etc. Like other versions of this franchise, it has it's good points and bad points. I do like it better that last year's version. But that's not saying much because I hated the previous version. The biggest thing I hate about this year's version is that it cheats.
Maybe this has gone on a little too long now. Not the game itself, but EA's disregard for those who buy it year after year.

Summary: Look, I love the franchise. I've picked it up like a loyal lad every single year it's been available. Like so many others, every year I have some small amount of misguided faith that perhaps the serious issues that have plagued the title in the past have been addressed. Like so many others, every year I find myself disappointed once I realize that behind some fluff, the same limitations, bugs and flaws are still present. I suppose that's not entirely fair.
EA...If it's in the game, we'll charge you more...

Summary: **I deleted my original review so that I could give a more accurate star rating after further play (original star ratings were 4 stars for fun and 3 stars for overall)** I will start by saying that the base gameplay is fine. It usually is minus a few annoying glitches, but the glitches have never made the game unplayable. EA Sports has pushed me to an every other year update purchase plan due to lack of ground breaking features and addons.
