While the concept is great the game is not. First off the passing is terrible. Everytime I throw it never goes to the receiver I wanted or its intercepted. The graphics arent bad but there is no crowd and the announcer's are terrible. The main problem was whenever I was winning in the 4th the other team would always go for an onside kick and the ball would go 2 yards and the kicker would run on top of it and no one would pick up the ball. My players would just circle the kicker but never get the ball. After a few minutes the kicker finally picks up the ball and then on the very next play the game freezes. This gets pretty annoying so I might not play the 09 version.
