I love football and football games. I own many versions of EA football games from Madden and NCAA. EA's games have always been worth playing/buying. They've always had their shortcomings, but mostly the pros outweigh the cons. This time, they really screwed up.

Unlike other reviewers, I don't think the game is boring. It's actually pretty much what I expected. The focus is on being a head coach, not a player, so I think it's normal that getting through the week takes longer than the game itself. Afterall, that is what happens in real life.

The problem that I have with this game is that it's so buggy that I just can't enjoy myself. Some major problems that I've encountered:

1) My OL players get plenty of pancakes every game. Problem is that after the game, the pancakes are registered as sacks and vice versa. So good linemen that I have (like Tarik Glenn of the Colts) drop from a high rating of 99 to 75 by season end because he supposedly gave up 150+ sacks when he actually had 150+ pancakes.

2) My QB (Peyton Manning) started the season with a high rating of 98 and ended with 80, despite the fact that he had a QB rating of 112, broke the TD pass record, and won MVP and best QB awards.

3) My WR (Marvin Harrison) started the season with a high rating of 99 and ended with 81, despite the fact that he led the league in TD catches and rec yards, and won the best WR award.

As you can see, the biggest problems are bugs with the stats sytems. Problem is, if this is a strategy game, then stats are more important than anything else. I put a lot of time/work into a game, and I expect to reap the rewards. Instead, I end up with players whose stats deterioate so badly that it doesn't matter what I do anymore.

I love franchise modes. I'm the sports geek that actually likes to pour over the Madden rosters before a game to plan my attack before taking the field. Drafting, trading, signing free agents...Bring it on!!
In this game, The interviewing coaches, adjusting my roster was fun, but at the same time, you can only make 3 changes to your playbook at a time. You are scheduled an interview with one assistant coach, but if you're not sure you want to hire him, and your next interview goes badly, there is no way to call them back for a hire.
I used the Rams. Finally playing a game, quarters are only 5 minutes long. Marc Bulger, (one of the better QB's in the league) threw 9 passes, 4 were picked...I was playing the Browns. The next game He was picked 3 times in 8 passes, and that was the end of that.
All that work, and the statistical players performances were completely random.
"Gameplay" is a joke, and no matter how much you train, player ratings fall, and guys like Peyton Manning get picked like a pop warner qb against my Rams corners, (for those who don't know, the Rams are weak at defensive back).
Extremely dissapointing, and a real time waster. What a shame, it really could have been great!

While playing Madden or my old favorite NFL2k games I usually spent as much or more time tinkering with my team than actually playing football. I was very excited about this game when i heard it was coming out. Boy am I disappointed.

The game is frustrating to say the least. It takes away most of the "freedom" that one gets from being a coach. I dont know what being an NFL Head Coach is like. But I promise you it is NOT like this game. Here are some examples of what really aggravated me

1. Ive been playing for 5 hours and have yet to even see a practice or a mini-camp. It has been long loading screens, boring menus, and confusing demands for 5 hours.

2. In that 5 hours I was forced to re-consider my COACH'S CLOTHING options about 7 times. WHY??? He is dressed fine. Let me skip this please?!?!?!?!

3. I did not have a D line coach. I tried to sign one and the game told me I couldnt. Yet the owner of the team was getting mad that I was not hiring anyone. The instructions and in-game tutorials are all-but useless.

4. The game forces you along a very boring and un-realistic path. Why force me to look at players I do not want? Why give me "office time" and allow me to do nothing but design plays and look at my depth chart? And why, if you want me to look at the depth chart, can I only shift two players around per day before you tell me I cant do anymore roster moves?????

5. If you want to sign a player or coach you cant until the game tells you you can. Even in the free-agency period, you can only look at three players a day. And if for some reason the game doesnt want you to talk to players or agents or whatever, YOU CANT. Even in "office time, which is supposed to be free time to do what you want.

The game and instruction manual tell you that you can improve the abilities "player ceiling" of your players through certain types of practices. The problem is that you can't if you actually play the practices. No amount of practicing will raise a player's ceiling. Player growth is essential to a career based head coaching simulation. The game has a number of other annoying bugs, that I can live with but I can't live with a game in which an essential component doen't work. Do not buy this game unless EA fixes it. The issue is so fundamental that EA had to have known about it when they released the game and chose to release a game that they know didn't function properly. To make matters worse there is no way to physically talk to a human being about this because they only provide email customer service. Tech support is answered by people for whom English is not a primary language and have never actually played or I suspect seen the game so they have no clue how to address the problem.
