Front Office Football Eight Review (PC)

Every year, gamers and sports fans alike, anxiously wait for the newest installment of EA’s Madden franchise to be released. The popularity of American football continues to grow, and sports gamers continue to search for every opportunity to get their football fix, which includes video games. The most popular NFL text sim to date is EA’s NFL Head Coach Series. Though EA no longer produces these games, a small studio continues to provide the video game community with a pro football text sim. Solecismic Software’s Front Office Football has been a classic among football fans for years, and continues to deliver with each new installment.

However, the question remains, how does Front Office Football 8, fulfill the football fans text-sim needs?

I'm honestly surprised that EA hasn't tried to buy Solecismic Software yet, and rebrand this game.

I played, and really enjoyed, this game about 15 years ago. Its funny that it doesn't look any different now than it did back then. It certainly costs a whole lot more now though. I would consider it for $10 like it was back then, but not the $30 that they charge now.

If head coach didn't warrant a reboot. That used Madden gameplay and such. No way they go "buy" something else.

The price is a bit steep, but the game is fun as hell. As for the graphics, the developer said he was searching for someone to invest in the look-and-feel of the game.

This was my first introduction to a text-sim game and I loved it. Very excited to give OOTP a chance this upcoming season.

This is the crown jewel of Sports Sims IMO.

I played the heck out of this in the 90s, I'm very glad to see they are doing good games still. I couldn't care less that the graphics aren't good or anything as I plan to run it on my work laptop, I will be getting this soon now.
