Sound, on the other hand, is something that seems to have gotten worse over the years. The commentary (done by Dick Enberg and Dan Fouts) is good, but always seems very out of place for what is happening on the field. For example, I had been running the entire game, and the one time my run was stopped, Dick Enberg made a comment about how I should start passing because the running game is getting me nowhere. Expect to question exactly what game the commentators are watching.
Let me just say this now and get it out of the way, I hated the music. I remember back in GameDay 2000, when the game would play a short clip of 'Respect' or some Van Halen song, just like at a real game. I loved this aspect and was really disappointed when I heard that they were replaced by badly done 'filler' music. What really ticked me off was that it became too predicable and repetitive. Yes, I know that all the music in football games gets repetitive, but when it's done well, you don't seem to mind as much.
