For the first time, players can put themselves in the shoes of sixteen former Heisman Trophy winners to re-create their accomplishments. The twists are that each challenge takes place in the present day and you can put any of the players on any team. Want to take Ohio State legend Archie Griffin to archrival Michigan, cover man Barry Sanders to Oklahoma State, or Tim Tebow to Florida State? No problem.
An added dimension is the inclusion of several hours of video featuring each winner’s story, interspersed at various points throughout the season. During your campaign to capture the Heisman, you’ll hear them talk about different things that impacted them during their college careers, adding an element of story and emotion to a mode that could otherwise feel much more mechanical.
The list of players is interesting, ranging from recent winners like Robert Griffin III, Matt Leinart, and Mark Ingram, but also reaches back to players like Tim Brown, Herschel Walker, and Jim Plunkett. Others include Doug Flutie, Andre Ware, Charlie Ward, Carson Palmer, and Eddie George; the variety of players and styles should provide plenty of interesting moments. We’re definitely excited about this one.
