    This is a pritty good game. shure there is nothing like a francside mode. but who really cares. this is a game you and you friends can play with some of your fav players that are now retired! It is sad though you can not pick more gold players or have no silver players and more gold and bronze players like the created teams. but that is all I have a problem with this game. but it really This is a pritty good game. shure there is nothing like a francside mode. but who really cares. this is a game you and you friends can play with some of your fav players that are now retired! It is sad though you can not pick more gold players or have no silver players and more gold and bronze players like the created teams. but that is all I have a problem with this game. but it really is only worth a rental because if you don't have many friends or if your friends don't like football it gets pretty boring. the only games that are better right now for the 360 is madden 08, and madden 06, 06 only because it is almost the same game but with a ok francise mode.

    No franchise mode. Enough said.

    This is BY FAR the best playing football game on the market. From a gameplay standpoint, it is everything you expect from a football game. All the little nuances are there. The players move and react like you would expect them to. The running and passing game are both spot on and some of the defensive glitches from 2K5 have been adressed and fixed.

All the little nuances are there. The players move and react like you would expect them to. The running and passing game are both spot on and some of the defensive glitches from 2K5 have been adressed and fixed. Where the game falls flat on it's face is features. What features? There are not many. Lack of a franchise mode, lack of a fantasy draft, lack of multiplayer season or franchise modes. It hurts. The graphics look good enough on an HDTV, but are not quite as polished as they could be. The animations are insane though. Every little movement has been captured and replicated. Overall, the game is entertaining. The gameplay is amazing, but the replay value may be lacking a little bit for some people. Expand

    At the very best, the July release date of APF2K8 gave Maddenites something to do while waiting for August 14. This is virtually 2K5 repackaged with some HOF's and some not so HOF's (Merrill Hoge for example). The 2K sports series have some Cult followers who this may bother, but one of their biggest complaints about Madden is the similarities between the games in successive At the very best, the July release date of APF2K8 gave Maddenites something to do while waiting for August 14. This is virtually 2K5 repackaged with some HOF's and some not so HOF's (Merrill Hoge for example). The 2K sports series have some Cult followers who this may bother, but one of their biggest complaints about Madden is the similarities between the games in successive years and APF 2K7 is basically 2K5 repackaged in many ways (Tackling animations, Play selections, running engine). In fact this game has actually taken a step back since 2K5, and its not just the lack of a NFL license. The graphics are average and the plays develop at a very slow pace. Add this with poor AI and weak playbooks and what you get is basically a pre-season football game - Alright for a bit, but not the real thing. Expand

    The game shines where we knew it would shine -- gameplay is pretty solid, though nothing better than what we've seen from other football games in the past. THe passing game feels too strict, without enough flow to the plays, but the running game feels spot on -- with a real ability to see and hit holes. The game, ultimately, feels featureless though and not polished.

The game, ultimately, feels featureless though and not polished. It reminds me a lot of Rockstar's Table Tennis -- a decent game, a good idea, and really solid gameplay, but with nothing to it past the solid gameplay... One major difference is that Table Tennis was a bargain priced game, at $40 when everything else cost $60. All Pro Football 2K8 would have been a great purchase at $40, but to charge $60 -- when the game is lacking every mode that other full price sports games feature -- is a ripoff. Rent it or wait for a price drop before picking this one up. Expand

    This is a solid game overall -- and without a doubt, All-Pro Football should continue building on this foundation. But if you were expecting 2K euphoria after two years on the sidelines, you'll be disappointed, as this one's got rust in many of the wrong places.
  2. With no franchise mode, Crib, or many amenities apart from nice stadiums, it’s the lack of connection with the league itself, not the fact that the NFL is missing, that is a letdown. Bolster this aspect and make some gameplay tweaks, and All-Pro Football will threaten Madden’s NFL more than the XFL ever did.
  3. All Pro Football 2K8 doesn't quite reach championship status, what with its lack of modes and other small items. However, it turns out to be an excellent start for 2K Sports' newest football legacy. Can't wait to see what comes around next year.
