View Full Version : Q: Ea Sports Head Coach

06-13-2006, 03:43 PM
i saw that ea was releasing a head coach game, does any one know what this game is about?

Well, it's a 3-D sports management game. You create a coach and then build his career... on the practice field, draft day that sort of thing.

I might be buying that instead...if Madden is just another roster update

Not to open a gigantic can of worms, but I dare anyone that claims all Madden does is roster update to go back and play a previous version and see if they have any fun.

it's basically the same as what gaming companies have done for futbol manager games for years...just EA ripping off another idea

Is This Game Worth It?
For 30 Bucks yeah... for 40 bucks no. It's fun for a while but can pretty boring pretty quick.

What all do you get to control?

If your getting it for a console its not worth it. If you getting on PC its probably worth 30 on PC.

I say PC because there are tons of bugs in the game that EA should have fixed. If you looking for realistic stats PC is the way to go because you can mod the game. On console is only 5 min games= no realistic stats.

On console the game gets too easy because the default difficulty is on All-PRO and you cant change it!.On PC you can mod the game and put it on ALL-MADDEN.

Overall if your a die hard football fan where you find your self skipping MAdden season and going straight to the off-season to fix up your team this might be the game for you.

I have the PC one and I got to control:
- Make playbook
- Make a play
- talk to player agents to discuss FA,RFA,DRaftees
- Talk to qb coach, CB coach etc all positions.
- Edit depth chart
- Edit cloths
::Training Camp::
- 1v1 rb v LB
- WR v CB
- OL block
- Off v DEF (non Contact) and Contact
- QB skill
The draft was pretty cool. You should have scouted player and then you go into your notepad and check whose still available. You can make draft trades as usual. You get 5 min to make a choice. The AI gets like 45 sec. Once a player is picked Mel talks about them saying their weakness and strengths.

hmm you cant control PLAYERS!
all you in the game is call plays, audible, send motion etc. and a special thing called motivation & strategies. You can tell certain player what to do ex. for a LT I put Follow block and bounce out, and use your talent. If I had a huge RB I would put Charge in hole.

The more you practice plays during the week the more likely they will work will in the game. They are called money plays. The higher the % a play is the better chance you will execute it will.

EDIT: P.S. Its taken me like 4 hours just to start the season. Thers lots of off-season things in here.

This game includes GM moves right? Drafts, signings, trades, etc.?

Thanks for the reviews guys, probably going to try and get it for PC.

If you get it on PC just remember to put it on auto save, because there bugs that turn up that can ruin your game if you manually save it. I heard of one where in week 2 you team changes automatcally and you cant play the team you picked. You would have to restart all over again. This is one HUGE bug that is getting people upset. For others they havent even gotten a bug at all. luck of the draw I guess.

heres what im talking about. Someone broke it down to explain the the bug is

I bought it and I thought I would love it but man is it boring!

Ya Ive been hearing many get bored of it, or they can play it for a few minutes and switch off and switch back on. This game wont have you looking at the screen all day like madden does.
