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.
