Conclusion: A very good first outing after a long absence for the 2K Football franchise, but it feels at times like they didn't study up on the improvements that Madden has made during that time. Either that, or they just made their game a little more unique than we are used to, and it all feels "wrong" in a sense. Good game, but it will either need improving or some getting used to before it becomes a household name.
Excerpt: So many football video games, so little time. Here are reviews of the latest releases to help you choose the game that’s right for you. The big dog in football is Madden NFL 08 from EA. Sure to be one of the best-selling games of the year, it’s loaded with real players, real stadiums and all the polish, including commentary by legendary coach and sportscaster John Madden.
Pros: Good, solid football simulation with enough options to keep fans playing all year. Wii version has Al Michaels commentary., Great gameplay, interesting team selection process., Solid gameplay, excellent tutorial, tons of teams and stadiums, good play-by-play commentary.
Cons: Wii controls are disappointing. PS3 version is known to have technical problems., Sound problems with commentators, disappointing graphics., No real complaints.
Conclusion: So for the hardcore 2K football fan, this is a must and for casual football fans as well. Visual Concepts has a rich history in sports games, and I’ll bet anything this game will be no different. Although it seems a bit shallow in the single player department from what I’ve seen, the online features look to more than make up for that.
Conclusion: It's worse than the old Blitz that I played on the PS1! And that was on the easiest setting which I was trying to use to get a feel for the game. All-Pro Football 2K8 was the biggest gaming disappointment I had experienced in years. Don't let the prospect of playing with Hall-of-Famers persuade you. Stick to Madden or Blitz .
Summary: It?s good to see 2K back in the football game, and even though they?re hands were tied they managed to deliver a solid game. If you?re a die hard football fan and you want up to see your favorite team play, you?re going to have to go down the Madden road, but if you?re looking for an alternative, or you?re a long time football junkie who likes the idea of playing with the legends of the sport, this is the game for you. It?
