A Novelty at Best

This game has it's moments, but it is a Novelty at best.

It's strong points are in that this game is everything and more of what us Madden fans want in a franchise.

The bad part is, it's not in Madden.

I only played through one season and an off-season when I rented this title. The preseason and regular season was pretty fun. Decided what to game plan against the opponent, creating my own plays (I made a couple that always got me that first down in the clutch), and gave me everything that I wanted when it came to micromanaging. But once the off-season hit, the micromanagement became too much for me. Way too many options with RFAs, draft picks, trades, and my GM kept wanting me to cut key players. Heck towards the end of the regular season he wanted me to bench Peyton Manning in favor of Jim Sorgi!

So I found the game to be entertaining for my franchise fix. It had a complexity level that I, an avid football fan, could not grasp with one play through, which was enough for me. Heck, I don't know everything about the salary cap, tat's too much work for a game.

Final Verdict, a good novelty game tat I'm glad I rented, but I only kept it for two days.

the game play was ok but not for me, the best feature is being able to create plays and then export them to MADDEN 09 other then that not my cup of tea.

This stuff should be in Madden

This game is okay I guess... The offseason stuff is AMAZING but I just can't stand watching the computer play... They mess up and do too many dumb things. If the offseason stuff was in Madden... OH WHAT AN AMAZING GAME IT WOULD BE!!!
