Worthless, Mar 17, 2023
While the game NFL2K5 is pretty good, the accompanying guide (and the guide for the NCAA game) are remarkable for being so utterly worthless. The author(s) seems to have watched a couple of sports centers and then writes for each team that so and so is good, and so you should use play using these players. The actual plays themselves and the mechanics of the games are hardly dealt with.--Guys, how about, like, telling us what a cover two rotating zone is and why this is useful against certain offenses? Nah, you'd have to do more than skim ESPN sports center.
--Buy the game, but under no circumstance waste your money on these "guides".

Just OK, Aug 17, 2023
This strategy guide was just OK. It wasnt what i was looking for becasue it just gave general advice like 'try to recruit players that are interested in your school instead of those that arent'. It gave me a couple new ideas, but overall it was less than i expected.
