just got it yesterday and its pretty good once you get the patches for it. The 3d game part is actually quite good and a bit different. I just beat Auckland with Canterbury (NPC) so im happy.

Gpstore now has it in stock for like $80 if anyones interested

Didn't even know it was out. The screen shots I saw looked pretty crappy though.

Thats because its a management game. the graphics don't need to be good because you arent actually playing the game.

you sort of do play the game. Although i simulate most games unless the good teams are involved such as canterbury, auckland, otago, waikato and Wellington. When your playing each phase you have the 2 options of going with the forwards put in a crash ball in, going wide kicking it or going for a drop. there are also individual order you can give to one player to side step, fend, missed pass, switched pass, setup maul, grubber kick. Defence isnt much though you just chose what kind of defence you want to have. If your a Waikato fan you can buy Reihana back
. its well worth a look.

i very much recomend. the 'watching' the game part has quite a lot put into it. Ive noticed that when a player gets to the break down alone you see them rip the ball of the tackled player and also i got coat hangered by the fullback.

no player likeness. Roks is fast but theres faster. Steve Hanley i think it is, is the fastest in the game. and theres no special things for certain people. You sound like the kind of person that should leave this game alone and get WCR.

i like the managing aspects of the game.it sounds good.i play maddens franchise mode to build a team and a franchise.i dont sit thru the whole season and play all the games..only except the super bowl.and im more satisfied sitting thru the off-season managing the coaches and drafting new recruits to the team then playing games during the season.
so is this game for me then?

Wait till the next version - it will be much better.

This first version is full of bugs, player stats are far from accurate (especially the NZL ones!!), and currently it is too easy to win games (the AI needs major reworking).

full of bugs? um no
Stats are a bit off.
Its not easy when you play as a lesser team.

Oh and CHIROPRACTOR ive never played madden but from what you say it sounds like ud like it then. If your a person who is just after how the 3d game bit plays it wont be for ya. In the offseason theres not a hel of a lot to apart from scout renew contracts and sign players for team and academy and upgrade your facilities
