From the kansas City Star
1.) Everyone is constantly turning the ball over. I played against my friend David four times — as the New Orleans Saints vs. the Chicago Bears — and we each fumbled and threw interceptions as if we were newbies. We’re not.
Then I played a solo match against the computer. Both my team and the other team — the Tennessee Titans vs. the Tampa Bay Buccaneers — fumbled and threw pick-offs four times.
That’s eight interceptions in a 20-minute ballgame of five-minute quarters. This is wildly unacceptable.
One time I dove to the ground without any defensive guy hitting me, and I fumbled while falling peacefully to the ground.
2.) If you are running with the ball, you can press a button to do a lateral. But if you accidentally press this button when there’s no teammate around you (fairly easy to do), you fumble. How stupid.
3.) There is a great “protect” button you can press. It makes you wrap both hands around the football while you’re running. This should keep you from fumbling. Yet I was jogging as a big fullback in open field toward a touchdown, with the “protect” button on, and a tiny little safety guy pushed me once.
4.) When a new series of downs begins for my offense, I’m given just over 20 seconds to scan through my plays, pick one, rush to the line of scrimmage, and snap the ball. This is absurd.
[i]Not that it matters, youve either drank the kool-aid or not, and no amount of glitches(08 apparently), rip-offs(06, 07), or complacency(05-08) will deter you. So, start your hondas, turn up the Limp Bizkit, and turn your ball caps around, the roster update arrives at midnight!. BTW is EA still using those cheerleader pics from 03?
