    Doug flutie's maximum football is a great first step in getting another football game on the market Madden has been completely disappointingDoug flutie's maximum football is a great first step in getting another football game on the market Madden has been completely disappointing and we need some type of competition. They listen to their consumers and obviously they're a small company so it's not going to be the best product when you first start but it's a great first step. Would recommend Expand

    Needs a huge overhaul and a lot of updating and fine tuning. Gameplay is kinda trash, but the recruiting and the customizing it what I haveNeeds a huge overhaul and a lot of updating and fine tuning. Gameplay is kinda trash, but the recruiting and the customizing it what I have been craving for 7 years. Certain aspects are hard to understand but being made by 3 people in Canada speaks volumes to how far we have come. That it has come down to 3 people in Canada to give the people what they want in a football game. Full control. Fix that gameplay and depth chart issues, and they could be on to something. Expand

For me, I like those previous listedIf you’re in to the customization and recruiting part of college football, this game may be for you. For me, I like those previous listed parts and the actual football part of the game too. The equipment is cool. The game play has so many glitches and errors it’s hard to play. The playbook is the worse playbook ever. You never know what coverage you are in. I have yet to figure out how to make my DBs give a cushion. When the ball snaps they automatically go forward and leaves the receiver wide open. The LBs line up 7-8yds deep every play. They hardly every fight off blocks. NCAA 10 gameplay is a 1000 times better. I truly couldn’t careless about how many people they had/have create this game. I’ve tried 4 different times to play a full game through and I can’t because the game has so many glitches. They have a depth chart issue. The playbook has a limited amount of plays and looks as if a 10 year old drew the plays. I could go on and on. I was not expecting much from this game, but It didn’t come close to what I was expecting. I wish I could claim my $30 purchase as a charitable gift to the creators. My list stopped at 30 things wrong with this game and I wasn’t out of the first half. They have made some updates to the game as of 10/4, but it’s still a 4/10. Again, if you just want to customize and recruit, this maybe the game for you. Expand

    Many fans of this game (or fans of anything that even has a 0.1% chance of eventually competing with Madden) will immediately let you knowMany fans of this game (or fans of anything that even has a 0.1% chance of eventually competing with Madden) will immediately let you know that this game was made by a team of 1-2 people. While it is not easy to make a game with just a couple people, that shouldn't excuse the fact that this game has launched with a $30 price-tag despite being inferior to mediocre mobile games in many aspects.

    The actual on-field gameplay is atrocious, receivers will run into each other and rather than bounce off or get around each other, they will simply continue running into each other, defenders will sometimes not tackle, but just stand still while the carrier continues to run into them. Actual US college rules have not be correctly implemented, as fumbles can be recovered and players will still run the ball despite being fully on the ground as they picked up the ball.

    As for the management/dynasty features, the menu navigation is somehow awful as well. If you go through the game's menus for an hour, almost 15 minutes of your time will be spent waiting for the constant auto-saves to waste 10-15 seconds at a time. It seriously saves every time you return to the main menu of the dynasty mode. Also, there isn't a settings option on the main menu. Hmm.

    In general, there are countless design choices that will make one wonder if the developers have ever played a college football video game (or a football game in general). The controls are needlessly un-intuitive in every regard to the point that simply trying to pause the game puts you at risk of accidentally leaving the game. No need to worry about backing out of a game with an online opponent though since after three years the series still doesn't support of any online connectivity whatsoever.

    TL;DR - This game is awful and for numerous reasons that don't have to do with a small dev team, but a lack of some combination of common sense, talent and care. Even disregarding glitchy gameplay, the actual design choices used are almost always needlessly different from accepted norms. Also, it doesnt even feel like a college football game. At all. Bye

I always thought a game had to at least be at a certain level of quality to be sold on live/psn, but obviously not. And enough of the '3 man team' excuse. That does NOT excuse such a terrible game in all aspects(gameplay, graphics, sound, menus, goofy player models), especially when they actually RAISED the price of this year's game to $30, when it wasn't worth $17 from last year's game.

    Horrible ai, dumb offensive lineman are too dumb to block defenders, wrs STOP before they catch the ball, hardly any interceptions/fumbles, bad play art, which the wrs don't even follow sometimes, dumb players celebrate oddly, and in the wrong situations. Saw a terrible example of this where a player ran the ball for a yard, got up and strutted as if he had a 60 yard run.

    This is a terrible, terrible product.
