I made this point in response to those bending over to praise this incomplete game so i wanted to have it stand as its own topic. I respect all opinions but you cannot debate this edition being worthy of full price. I sat in disbelief last night once i tore off the plastic wrapping, fiddled through the CCM Coach Menu, and turned on my laptop to see the USER reviews (and opinions) here and other places on the web. I think the gameplay is great, by the way, but EA has really shown us what having the exclusive NFL license means. This is lazy. This is wrong. This game never makes it into production if other studios were allowed the use the NFL license. Here it is:
Anyone here that's saying "CCM is JUST LIKE" the normal franchise mode couldn't be more wrong. Here's a scenario:
Would any of you who happen believe that go to your favorite restaurant to order your favorite dinner (let's use spaghetti with meatballs and garlic knots) where you always paid $40.00 for the dish...and then they tell you that the meatballs, sauce and garlic knots are no longer included? But the price remains the same?
Would you be fine with that? No matter how great the semolina wheat noodles were, would you pay, blindy, and smile?
Sheep do what they're told, use your brain and don't view less as more unless EA was going to charge $20.00 for this "game" we have (about to be shipped back). It makes no sense to smile while someone is going in your wallet...and giving you less value for what they take back.
