Repetitive Commentary ruins an already average game.
At first this game isnt that bad. You will play it, and if you like the typical EA Sports Big games, there is some fun to be had, for about 2 hours, maybe. Sadly, this is a huge backwards step from NFL Street, that was around before the Xbox 360.
Free Play/Exhibition or NFL Tour mode. Your 2 main options. NFL Tour mode has you make a player and put it on your favourite NFL licensed team. You play through a season where you play 38 games against other NFL teams and all-star teams. Theres like 9 stages, each with different rules, but none are fun nor very creative. Some are just frustrating. At times its mind-blowingly easy, and at times gametypes make you want to rip hair off your scalp to entertain yourself more. You CAN (and probably will) beat this mode/game running 1 offensive and 1 defensive play. Free Play, you can play a game of your choice with your rules, your teams and whatnot. Basic stuff. Lastly theres the "mini-games". One-on-one rushing (redzone rush) and Smash & Dash (Possession). They're not too fun, but the achievements give you a small taste of them. Bare minimum single player here.
Yes, it deserves it own section of this review. Earlier, I stated this game was alright for a few hours, but a full 10 hours is unbearable. If you have mute on your TV, use it! So at first, the commentary is both witty and funny. Hearing the same comment every 5 minutes, they quickly get old. They make fun of their own game, and the wittiness doesnt last after hearing them every kick-off. This part of the game took it down 3 notches, from an already low place. I praise the person who can actually play full volume for more than 5 hours.
Doesn't really exist. There's potential to play with 2 controllers, but there's no online nor leaderboards.
Easy list here. Folllowing a guide, they will take you around 10 hours. The first 850 take maybe 2 hours, and then you have to play an incredibly stupid and long tour for the last 150. Nothing Unique, but not terrible either. You'll experience the whole game getting the achievements.
There's probably a bunch of other games I'd rather play for gamerscore that you can complete in 10 hours, but if you can pick this up for $5, it isnt too bad, if that's what you are looking for. If you are looking for a fun football game, with much more arcade style, you can satisfy a craving, but you should probably take a look into Blitz or Backbreaker, which are only a little better.
