Awesome gameplay, but pretty easy.
The controls are difficult if you haven't spent much time playing video games but once you learn them it becomes a really fun game.
One annoying thing is that the running plays almost never work unless you use Pocket Protector. You almost always get sacked behind the line or gain minimal yardage. I like to stick to passing plays, regardless of what John Madden thinks, although the Ask Madden option is usually helpful.
