This game had all the makings to be a great one, but of course EA messes it all up. The online dynastys are constantly down and will sim games over that you have already won. It is worthless to even play online dynasty. The defense is impossible. D-line gets absolutely no pressure, even a 99 overall defense! This game is loaded with glitches that ruin the overall experience for everyone. Ea needs to get their act together.

I think pretty much every football game is the same besides the graphics and maybe sometimes they change the franchise mode. And this game is no other. I mean you cant really change the game that much because theyve pretty much already perfected it since they make a new one each year. I thought a cool thing about it was you can make the crowd get loud when your on defense and you can make them quiet when your on offense. I dont know if that makes any difference but its kind of cool. Live is pretty good. But unless you dont have a football game with you i dont suggest you buy it unless you really love football. Also i kind of like madden better so unless you like College football i suggest you try madden. I suggest you rent it but dont buy it unless you dont have a football game from 08 or 07.
I gave this game a 10 because of just how much better it was than last years version. Everything that had a glitch in the 2008 version has been fixed in this new version and it plays a million times better. The graphics were the first notable thing to me. Everything looks more polished than last year. Also i like how u are more involved in this one for instance when u call a timeout u can actually tell the players to focus on a certain aspect of the game also after u score a td u can run to your mascot and celebrate with him. Also the playcalling set up has benn made much more usable when playing with friends on the same tv. u dont have to highlight the play u want to use. Overal i was just blown away with the difference this year.
