NFL Head Coach 09 Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Okay, so maybe NFL Head Coach 09 is more attractive to the play-calling purists without on-field action. But what’s up with the last-gen visuals? It would seem that an Xbox 360’s DVD could hold NFL Head Coach 09 ’s code and statistical data, plus some snazzy graphics pulled from Madden 09 . Instead, NFL Head Coach 09 looks more like Madden NFL 2004 .

  • Conclusion: The Create-a-play feature isn't really necessary as most of the user-created plays don't work all that well in the games, and the online community is DEAD, not that it would be any better playing online in the first place. If you don't mind simulating for some decent gamerpoints and you think that's worth buying the game, then by all means do so.
