In addition, players can take the af2 circuit by storm by winning the ArenaCup then export their players into the AFL and set their sights on an ArenaBowl championship. The game brings back the excitement and experience of hard-hitting, high-scoring intensity of 50-yard goal line-to-goal line battles. Players can dominate both leagues by scoring at will and wreaking havoc on their toughest rivals with huge hits that send players into-and over-the walls. [Electronic Arts] Expand

  1. The Bottom Line is that even though Road to Glory is an improvement over last years AFL via feature set, the gameplay hasn't received the type of refinement that we would expect.
  2. But Arena Football Road to Glory does truly capture, in true EA Sports form, the real essence of indoor football that will offer the average football gamer another choice to select from if they want a pigskin alternative to both of EA’s other more revered football franchises covering the NFL and college football.
  3. There is no denying that Arena Football: Road To Glory has a bit more to offer than last year’s debut – but not enough really to warrant a second purchase for owners of the first game.
  4. The strategy is simple: run plays like Yo-Yo Post fade, score, repeat endlessly, rack up 100+ points, and win. [May 2007, p.83]
  5. An uninspired effort that does little to satiate football fans’ jones for a gridiron fix this winter. The combination of its eerie similarity to last year’s game with some framerate issues should dissuade all but the most dedicated Arenophiles from investing the $30 for this PS2 exclusive.
  6. It would be a shame if the decision on whether to continue with the franchise into the next-gen were based on the improvements from last year's product to this.
  7. There’s simply no reason to buy this game until EA Sports puts forth a more serious effort at making it playable and fun.

I don't understand why Matt L is saying it is a waste of $30! It is definetly better than last year, but it still has some graphic problems. At times the players look lke shapeless blobs, bit it is still a decent game once you get over that part. Expand

    Small notch above adverage,, fast game play is a plus but game does get boring after a season. Good game to put away and take out another Small notch above adverage,, fast game play is a plus but game does get boring after a season. Good game to put away and take out another day, graphics not horrible, but game mapping and design of extra features are horrible.. worth the 30 if you ask me. Expand

    Can't believe I just paid $30 for this game I thought I was making a good buy considering i love football games and have never played Can't believe I just paid $30 for this game I thought I was making a good buy considering i love football games and have never played one I didn't like. Well was I wrong this game is somehow way worse then blitz the league which wasn't anything great. The plays remind of those on Tecmo super bowl and the gameplay looks like it cost next to nothing to design. overall very disappointed and wish i could return the game but ill be trying to sell it at work on Monday.
