    You can see what I hate about it there. CJ looks 6'5 and 280lbs. He moves like he's that size too.

    They did well with the creation system, how you can pretty much make anything- but the plastic looking guys and lumbering stiffness in runningbacks/wrs/etc is hard to accept.

    It's more of an acquired taste. There are no players to take seriously so you should just have fun with it.

    My only real problems are the camera angles. I can see what they were aiming for, but there should be options.

    The AI is REALLY stupid on punt returns. I had a 4th and 27, and about 3 or 4 roughing calls later (yes, the same possession), they ended up inside their own 20 and kicked a field goal.

    I also got screwed on a wide-open lob in the endzone. The guy just dropped it. And there's no user catching to stop it, it's all a crap shoot on when they'll catch the ball.

    This looks horrible. Madden must have spoiled me, because these players here look like garbage. I'm all for a second player to create competition for EA, but this is a joke that only children would play.
