    Mutant Football League is fast fun and easy for casual fans to get into. It's also incredibly violent and full of cheesy horror puns. In some ways it's everything I wanted it to be while simultaneously leaving the door open for improvements. My only gripes are that it's occasionally repetitive and can be frustratingly unpredictable (for those who hate huge game swings from dirty plays and being consumed by stadium hazards). Still, Mutant Football League is great fun!

    Yes, it's vulgar, it's crude, and it's often profane. Be that as it may, Mutant Football League is probably the best football game available on the PC today.

    Perhaps it's fitting that Mutant Football League is a little rough around the edges and has some punishing characteristics. The game is brash, self-aware, and best suited for an older audience. The carnage inflicted is thoroughly entertaining and strategically the game gets better as its nuances become better understood. With "Mutant Football League," the dirtiest trick of all was making fans of the original wait 24 years for the sequel.

    It lacks game modes, it lacks some replay value and it has some of the most frustrating elements in an sports videogame to date. And still it's the best football game recently released on PC. Plus, you can equip your QB with a shotgun. Beat that, Madden!

    Mutant Football League brings back visions of the over-the-top arcade sports games of yesteryear, but its lack of mode depth makes it tough to recommend to anyone beyond nostalgia seekers. Should Digital Dreams build a more engaging infrastructure around the bloody gridiron action in subsequent updates, the game could deserve a second drive, but after reading the field of play on this fourth down I advise you to punt.

    I am enjoying this game more than any football game I've played since ESPN NFL 2k5. As a base game itself it's really good and I'm surprisedI am enjoying this game more than any football game I've played since ESPN NFL 2k5. As a base game itself it's really good and I'm surprised they decided to spoof pretty much all of the players on all the teams, as I was expecting just the bigger named players to be named and then generic players for the rest.
    Now, I am actually playing the beta version of the game on Steam that includes the Dynasty mode, and it is fantastic. It starts your team off with 40/100 stats across the board and you need to build the team up through playing experience, Free Agency, Trades or whatever else to get them to the Championship game by at least the 3rd season without ending the season $25 million in debt. You have to manage player salaries, costs for resurrecting players, your playbook, player stats and upgrades (very deep on this one). It is also quite challenging to start out on Normal difficulty in Dynasty, as I just managed to win my first game 11 games into the season (now 1-10), although I almost won a game before that but the winning FG got called back due to the other team having bribed the ref, and then I lost in OT...
    It is a ton of fun. Without Dynasty mode I'd probably give the game an 8, but with Dynasty mode (that seems to work just fine in the beta) I'm giving it a 9, and am looking forward to some planned updates the Devs have mentioned, like possibly being able to customize your team, as well as the new upcoming stadiums, teams and player types.

    The game is a lot of fun, reminds me of the old mutant league football game, its definitely worth playing if you've been waiting for a game like MLF.

The fun factor is high, and the morbid sense of humor and blatant (legal!) cheating that made the original game so unique. Computer AI is challenging but beatable. The graphics are solid, with the stadiums being unique and well-detailed. Controls are very good; a game controller is strongly recommended. Expand

    The best American Football game on PC right now. MFL's gameplay and graphics are on another level in comparison to it's competitors on steam.The best American Football game on PC right now. MFL's gameplay and graphics are on another level in comparison to it's competitors on steam. If you have played the NFL Blitz games, you will enjoy this game. MFL feels like a return to arcade style sports games. If you're looking for an American Football game on PC that isn't just a team manager sim, then MFL is your best choice. With a good amount of content already in-game, alongside more free content coming in later updates; Mutant Football League will become an even better game throughout 2018. Expand
