waste of money.
on 6 December 2003
great graphics, great sound, incrediably indepth, everything you could want from a Gridiron game.
However, it is entirely IMPOSSIBLE to defend, and when some poncey team like Amsterdam Admirals can wallop your Buffalo Bills team 50 odd nil... then you have restrain yourself from pulling out your own hair.
I bought this game because I really liked the old madden games on the MEGADRIVE, and despite the natural improvement in graphics and presntation I was happy to find it still played in a very similar way. Except that is, for the DEFENDING... which was easier in the old days. It is just about the only flaw in an otherwise perfect game. I'm afraid to say though, that it is a massive flaw... like playing a footy game and the programmers having forgotten to include a goalkeeper.
Pish, big dissapointment and I will be returning my copy post haste.
