Mutant League Football Offers Modern Day Lessons for Developers

What does Mutant League Football have to teach modern day software companies? Operation Sports Wil McCombs explains how Mutant League Football still offers lessons for sports game developers today.

Quote:
"Had AP2K8 completely committed to a single gimmick, it would have carved out an identity, and therefore a niche in the marketplace. It should have tried to be ONE thing Madden wasn’t, rather than nearly everything Madden wasn’t. Had it done this, we might be seeing an All-Pro Football 2K9. In my humble opinion, the game would have been best served to play the nostalgia angle, and be a "Golden Age of Football" type game. Nobody wants to play a sim with a fictional league, especially when Blitz: The League is doing at least an admirable job at filling the arcade football void."

Mutant Leage Football... what a great game. My favorite player....... Bones Jackson. An incredibly skilled and speedy running back. Although he was kinda fragile. If u haven't played it... ur missing out..

Yeah, that game was epic. I loved that you can pay off the ref and use the Demon Goal in the hockey version. Both games were great, though I think we got more play out of hockey because it's so damn awesome seeing a bunch of chainsaws and bones floating around on the ice for your use should you need them. Hah, those games had a great sense of humor also -- I downloaded them in ROM form fairly recently and was dying at some of the 'dialog'.

Are we to consider PES customization options a gimmick then?

I for one love fictional sims. OOTP Baseball is a such a blast to play fictional leagues with. I love APF as well.
