  1. While it certainly lacks in the game mode department and the presentation can be a bit disappointing at times, the games plays great and does a great job of bringing us a good sense of what Arena football is all about.
  2. The passing game is tremendously fun, and that's where the bulk of the action happens. The job of video game QB becomes a lot easier when you don't have to worry about complex coverages in the secondary.

    Priced at a frugal $29.99, Arena Football is a fantastic way to cure those post-Super Bowl blues thanks to the numerous spectacular plays you will witness every game. This game is really, really fun.
  4. While the game doesn’t contain all the bells and whistles of its NFL counterparts, the game makes up for it in gameplay.

    The tackles in the game—some of which can literally send players flying into the bleachers—are the most vertebrae-jangling hits we've seen this side of a roller derby.

But on the positive side I was very impressed with the graphics, gameplay, and that you can control any man on the field. Most of all I love ironman football! Full Review »

    I am a HUGE arena football fan, so the rules of the game I was already aware of which most likely gave me an advantage to madden junkies.
