Opinions vary... Mine is that this game is fantastic. I have only played a few games and I can already tell that EA did a great job fixing alot of what bothered me about last years game (which wasnt alot). D works, you can get pressure on the qb, if you call a good D you can get off the field. The chess match is back. On O if you work the ground game and dont give up it can and will pay off, passing the ball is more like real football. You cant just throw the same few patterns all game long...you better find the open guy or your going to be punting alot or throwing picks. Power backs work as do speed backs, but an elite power back this season will mean something. Does 10 have some problems? Sure...Is it better then 09 imo yes.
