From Gamespots review....... "The game's create-a-player mode lets you edit a number of preset faces, but it doesn't approach the level of depth found in other EA Sports titles, such as Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2005 or Fight Night Round 2. The presence of a create-a-player mode seems odd, especially when you consider the game only includes three main modes: quick game, tournament, and practice (the latter of which includes some decent training exercises). Tournaments include the Super 12, European Trophy, and Lions Tour, as well as the Ten, Six, and Tri-Nations tourneys...and, of course, there's the World Championship. Lack of a franchise or career mode means you probably won't use your created player much in the first place, however." Since there are no Franchise or Career type modes, all I ask is this. Is there really any use for making a created player, other than recreating past greats?
