All Pro Football 2K8 Review (360)

We have just posted our All Pro Football 2K8 review. Find out what Terry Crouch had to say about it.
"Never have I been so conflicted about a game before. Let me get that out of the way up front. All-Pro Football 2K8 has some seriously impressive things going on under the hood. However, much like NFL 2K5 before it, it also has some seriously eyebrow-raising curiosities as well. There are moments while playing APF2K8 where I would replay a particular play over and over, marveling in the realism and how authentic all of the interactions appeared. Then, a few plays later, I'd watch a strange animation completely take a defender out of a play, resulting in something that felt very canned and inorganic. Such is the nature of APF2K8. One part beauty, one part beast, but still worth a look if you like football."

Re: All Pro Football 2K8 Review (360)

Nice. I spent 2 hours building my team at the beginning, too. I think the graphics are great in snow and rain, but awful in non-weather due to 2K not utilizing the lighting techniques that made 2K5 stand out graphically (see 2K5 afternoon games at Texas Stadium or day games at Ralph Wilson stadium with overpassing clouds!)

Perhaps, 2K had some programming hurdles that prevented them from using it this time around, but nevertheless it really makes day and afternoon games look unimpressive :-(. And the grass just looks bad outside of weather games.

This is a solid review!

Re: All Pro Football 2K8 Review (360)

I think the reviewer does a very good job with this review. My only gripe is in relation to how $60 should buy more game given the comparison that NFL 2k5, as perhaps the most collosal bargain of a buy in the history of gaming, once retailed for $20. I think given the reality that 2k5 was so undervalued, it is a bit of an unfair comment. Madden, as a response, had to drop it's drawers to compete and I've never heard a reviewer suggest that their $60 should have bought more Madden in the Exclusive Years since.

I think that 2k8 is a real challenge as a review prospect. I think that Mr. Crouch did a great job of it and made valid points in balancing what 2k8 offers as a title. I don't know that this is a game for everyone, especially those hard-wired into NFL licensing, or those more casual gamers, who aren't into the more creative applications provided by this game. Crouch does a good job of conveying that.

I look forward to reading more of his work here

Have fun....................
