Different isn't always good.

Good - collisions are way better than any EA football game, more difficult to score than most football games, league and team creators are pretty cool, drafted players are actually good (unlike Madden). TROPHY HUNTERS - I played for one evening played about 12 games before i sent it back and got 15 or so trophies. You can easily earn 5-10 for playing 1 game.

Bad - a lot is bad. the playbook is ridiculously small and random (one down you can select run and be given 4 tosses, the next down 4 dives), its nearly impossible for the CPU to score on you. I was winning 5 minute games 17-0 consistently. the controls have good ideas in them, but don't respond well and the passing is such a headache. you can't alter the controls by defense or offense, its either all backbreaker controls or all madden-like controls, can't throw on the run, if you tuck the ball as a QB you must run (ridiculous).

If you are looking for an arcade style football game, blitz the league is much better than this.

5/10 and that's pretty generous.
