THIS GAME IS EVERYTHING I EXPECTED IT TO BE AND MORE. COMPARED TO THE ORIGINAL HEAD COACH FROM THE XBOX VERSION, THIS GAME IS EXCELLENT. IT MAKES YOU THINK MORE, AND IT IS COMPETITIVE. THE IDEA OF THE GAME IS TO BE THE BEST HEAD COACH IN THE NFL. THE GRAPHICS ARE GREAT AND THE REALISM OF THE GAME IS AWESOME. I HAD WAITED NEARLY A YEAR FOR THIS GAME, AND IT WAS WORTH THE WAIT. COMPARE TO MADDEN 09, HEAD COACH 09 IS BETTER WHEN IT COMES TO HAVING CONTROLLING EFFECTS OF REALITY VIA FANTASY.
It's a good game, but it gets boring. I used the Patriots and dominated, and after a day, it didn't get very fun. The Good: Create your own Head-Coach is awesome. Input from other coaches makes it more lifelike. Signing Free Agents is good, competition was added very well for free agents. The Draft. Being able to be fired made it more realistic. The Bad: Cutting players. The Draft(others put in too much info and if you don't like their opinion then they don't like you). Salary Cap, I know it's part of the game but it made free- agency kind of pointless. Game gets too easy, I had the Pats Offense storm up and down the field relentlessly, and my D was unstoppable.
Overall: B The minor mistakes took alot away from the game itself. Very Realistic. A few adjustments and it would have gone through the goal post!
At first this game looked cool but then oh no when I played it this game was one of the worst ever. I mean its ok but so many confusing things take the enjoyable part of the game and just throws it of the empire state building and when it hits the ground nothing is left but the most little microscopic particles. I do not recommend this game to anybody not even the head coach of the Colts.
