Overall: Where do i sign up for football? I think if there going to make a game with so many things hidden and hard to figure out they may as well make a high school football game just as lame. Gameplay: Game play is same as all the latest on the Xbox 360 football games have been... downright sluggish.. interception in opponents enzone= opponent reciving a TD??? wow lets get some physics bact to the game. Graphics: Great visuals, but when i tackle a QB how about i see my player actually collide with the QB and not just him falling cause i am intending on hitting the Player. Sound: What happened to the crowed getting louder with a home team scoring a TD? All around the hits made noise and the QB said hike. Suggestions: Keep it in the box dont rush the release.
Overall: I expected big things from EA regarding this game. I wasn't expecting perfection but I wanted a good solid football game. A game much better than last years Madden which blew hot sloppy chunks. Was I pleased? Well, read on, read on......... Gameplay: It's football however it's not really football. I mean there's the tackling, the running, the throwing and the kicking and catching. However, none of it is done all too well. The juke moves are too slow, the throwing is awkward at times, the catching can be non existent, and all of my kickers suck worse than any Lifetime movie to a 18 year old boy. Yet there is fun to be had. Some of my better runs were stuff of legends. I completed a pass that I swear was Rice gettin a hot one from Young. It was that pretty! The animations at times show off what the 360 can do. It could have been better overall but it could have been worse. Graphics: Up close it's gorgeous. From a distance, the stadiums are wonderfully done. So no matter the angle, the games visuals are something to behold. Sound: The sound has been getting a bad rap only because it's missing that crowd noise element that would make the game and controller shake. I don't really miss it. The crowds are loud, extremely loud! It's music to my ears! Suggestions: Just try harder. Use the power you have and do it! The ugly truth, it beats Madden 06 for the 360 last year and that's it.
