    Neat Idea; however, not delivered very well. Downloads take way too long to make this title enjoyable. Not worth it. You will be bored.

    This is quite possibly the worst "game" I have ever played. Take away all the gameplay from madden and add some more menus and spreadsheets and you have this pile of crap. Even if you like the idea of making decisions, this is too much and there is no reward for doing well. Absolute rubbish. Not even worth the bandwidth used to download.

    As it stands, NFL Head Coach will appeal to die-hard fantasy football fanatics and Madden franchise mode junkies, and to little else. Still, that's all EA ever wanted.

    Overall, the unique approach of NFL Head Coach makes this game a smart pick for football freaks and sports gamers looking to add some analytical and intellectual flavor to their library.
  3. Still, while Head Coach is ultimately an imperfect football-management simulation, it is also, almost in spite of itself, a frequently fun one. Those with a penchant for serious football management are most certainly going to find things to like about it.
