I'm on the fence with this game right now. Part of me likes it. Part of me despises it. I do think the series has a lot of potential but they did miss the mark with the first edition. Keep in mind that this game is intended for sports sim fans. For sim fans there has never been a good football sim and this game at least gives us a little hope that there will be one eventually. If sims are not your cup of tea then stay far away.
The actual in-game play, playmaking, stratgey, etc. is pretty well done. The problem which someone mentioned above is that this game is incredibly bogged down when you're doing all the office tasks. You can sim through this stuff but the simming doesn't work all that well and it definitely needs more options so you can fine tune it. What really kills the game IMO is on top of the bogged down non-game tasks the interface is brutal. So not only do you have to drudge to countless mindless tasks you are going to end up fighting with mouse/controller to do it.
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
