Re: Arena Football: Road to Glory

Do you guys think this is worthwhile to purchase if I already have last years version? I like AFL, but am not a huge fan.

Another question, for those that have the new MVP and this game, does AFL have more changes than MVP as compared to their prior year games?

Thanks!

The slowdown was annoying at first, but it doesn't happen quite often which is mind boggling. I'm glad that we have AFL as an alternative to Madden and Blitz. I do hope that next year AFL moves to the next gen hardware as this game is begging for that upgrade.

I think that the arenas received a bigger upgrade as we have more players finally falling over the walls when they crash over them. Another cool thing is crashing into the walls and bouncing off of them unlike last years game which was limited to these animations. There is more lighting effects like you mentioned DOA + more spotlights.

Some additional comments:
-No commentary is a negative imo which could have helped with the atmosphere.
-No 16:9 or 480P
-Playbooks appear to be expanded, but not by much. Plus they are organized so horribly that you would think EA didn't know a thing about football.
-Trash talking, Fighting, Shoving, and Tackling players after plays returns from last years game. This I'm disappointed about since this isn't the XFL.
-Cheerleader show at ½ time.
-Menus while cool, have that arcade look to them. AFL is not an arcade game, so I wonder why EA chooses to do so.
-Coaches are in this year as you see them on the field. (I don't remember them in last years game).
-Like DOA mentioned at GF, you can’t play AF2 alongside with AFL which kinda sucks.
-Champs sponsors Sports Player of the Game.
-Pause the game at anytime and receive some very cool Tutorial 101 information.
-BC on the PS3 with no problems.

Overall, if you liked last years game than spending $30 for this years game is well worth it.

Yes, unlike MVP'07.........Arena is worth the $30 with all the new features to season mode + enhancements to the gameplay.

Re: Arena Football: Road to Glory

I think that the running game has been adjusted as I was alble to run the ball a few times without hitting a brick wall, unlike last year.

Re: Arena Football: Road to Glory

Sounds good guys. I hope my local Blockbuster gets the game in the next couple weeks for me to try out (I rented another game tonight)

Since it's not a full priced title I think I can scrounge up the money if I like the game enough.
