THE GOOD: The things i like about this game is that you can have BIG hits and they are realistic. Also the announcers dont get annoying like on all the other games.
THE BAD: Some bad things though are that every catch HAS to be a Great on which isnt the case. Also when your opponent is running downfield you cant see your guys and dont know where they are. they should have an arrow atleast.
SUMMARY: Although realistic they over exagerate on the big plays and playmakers. Also you have no control on the price when you want to sign a new player and/or the amount of seasons you want him
THE BAD: not enough to do in the first season of general manager and I really dont like how you can't control any other teams in the trade mode (sometimes i want to boost some of my fav teams without beeing them and it wont let me i have to trade from my team not only for me but the other teams as well)
SUMMARY: this game is really good much better gameply than madden 2003.but ti could be so much better--like making the options avalible in the second season of the general manager mode avalible in the first you know like 2002? and i really hate how you cant control any other teams in the trade mode that sucks---and why cant there be a mode where if a players contract runs out you make the contract offer???????? this is a part of beeing a general manager isn't it??? but over all the realist game play makes up for the many of the flaws of the game
