IGN: "The largest addition that's been made to this year's game is a new feature known as Family Play, one which obviously takes its cues from the Wii's All-Play mode that's designed to simplify the gameplay mechanics. The concept is to make the game easy for casual football fans and newcomers to compete against the computer or another player by condensing the controls of the game to four basic game inputs. Regardless of what side of the ball you're on, Square makes a player dive, triangle makes a player catch and X makes a player perform a special move. Only Circle is different based on offense or defense (you spin on offense, while you change players on defense). Along with this basic control scheme comes a number of changes to the traditional gameplay."
