Didn't they insist the game was changing this year? Well they lied. I didn't play 09, but this game isn't really different from 08. Oh, and you can't play online franchises if you don't have the code that comes on the manual for the game. That is unless you want to pay an additional $10 to get an activation code. That's just stupid.
The same problems exist. Your players get no rush, your offensive line cannot block. Your D-backs don't react to passes, however the AI's D-backs jump every route.
It's just a bad game that hasn't gotten any better.

This game while better than last years, doesn't seem a whole lot different than last years. I am beginning to think that no competition, EA just rubber stamps the thing, and sends it out the door. It seemed like passing was way to easy, running didn't really work that well, but better than last year. I turned off the fight for fumble feature, was crazy, and I never even won one, and I had like 4 or 5 in one game. Also it seems like the compute goes crazy in spurts, if your doing well and decides to score, there is virtually no way to stop it. So I'll be returning it, and be glad Gamefly helped me avoid the sixty dollar pit trap.
