I picked up this game as I loved american football games and I wanted another after getting bored slightly with Madden NFL 08. The game is great fun but not as good value for money as the EA series that comes out every year.
The graphics are very good but not as good as Madden or other games the Playstation 3 can offer. This doesn't matter much as the game is still very fun. The soundtrack is rubbish and the game has many framerate problems. The game also crashed very often.
The game is great with multiplayer and is very short and snappy, you can pick it up and play at any time but isn't the best for hardcore american football fans.
The game takes more skill than Madden to score so is more rewarding when you finally score a touchdown. It is very hard and the controls are also very hard to learn.
This game is very good for anyone and is really easy to play. However, it does have a little bit of slowdown. This game is great for even the most casual sports fan. It is available on the cheap no making it a good purchase for fans of american football.
I am the first person to poo-poo american football in general and certainly the fact we have an annual NFL release in the UK. However i just think this game is massive fun. When you have a few mates round you can get this game fired up on the PS3 and have some short, sharp and exciting games. The small pitch means space is touch to come by and therefore takes skill to get yourself in a position to score. You don't have to go through the rubbish of taking three and a half weeks selecting which play to use, you just pick it up and go. Compare this to FIFA street which is football's equivalent of the game and you have complete opposites. On one hand you have a quick and fun to play game that still takes skill, on the other you have a complete load of rubbish. Even if you are not an NFL fan you can enjoy this game.
