See how incredibly detailed it can be? There so much more to this game than playing football, but even that has amazing depth. I play "Dynasty" mode in which I guide my team through several years. Some years, on top of all the "general manager" and "head coach" duties, I'll actually play each game hands-on. Other years, I simply play Head Coach. I'll select the plays on offense and defense and let the computer take control. If you don't want to sit through each and every game, you can simply let the computer simulate your game completely!
The football game itself is outstanding. The crowd goes nuts when a big play happens. Cheerleaders and team mascots dance around. And hit a big play for a TD, you get to hear your team's fight song. It's really adds a lot of pagentry to the game that Madden simply can't do.
The controls are simple, yet brilliant. The learning curve can be a little steep for new folks, but give it a week and the controls will be like 2nd nature. In fact, if you've played Madden, the controls are practicaly identical.
If there is a down side, it's that the difficulty levels are too spread out.Read more ›
The answer is a resounding YES!
Nearly every aspect of last years effort has been improved, from the play-books (a huge improvement) and the # of playable teams. The biggest improvements come in the Dynasty mode, a great feature that allows you control every aspect of your team season after season. The main improvement is the addition of the sports illustrated covers, the recap the week's previous action. I swear half the fun is seeing if your team made any print.
Graphically the game make a few minor leaps in quality, more animations, and improved stadiums, but no earth-shaking changes are found.
Sound, always top notch in the series, receives a few tweaks that compliment and already stellar package. The voice over commentary is still good, but not great. I would like to hear more situational commentary then the general banter that comes from the announcers on a regular basis, but it still stands above the rest of the pack.
Gameplay is as tight as ever with a minor adjustments, on both offense and defense.
When it comes to the presentation, what was great last year, borders on just good this year. Sure a few touches where added here and there (locker room exits, cheerleaders with flags, canons etc.), but I was hoping that more improvements would have been added to heighten the atmosphere.
So are there enough upgrades to warrant another $...?????
Yes, I have to say so. This game is still light years ahead of the competition, but I hope EA doesn't get comfortable.
This game is a five star game, but in the end more upgrades should have been added so I have to pull one star from this great title.
FINAL VERDICT: 4 STARS ****, but if you purchase this game (and I do recommend it!), say good-bye to your life for awhile
