Summary

A good conversion of a horrible game.

The Good

The software engine is excellent - I'll give them that. But other than this, I truly dislike this game. The music is also quite good, and the AI is decent.

The Bad

I really hate the sport, and I think a computerized conversion is even worse than the real thing. The controls are horrible and the players look disgusting.

The Bottom Line

It's a great game if you like the genre and the sport, but personally I'd stay away from it.
