If it comes out for 360 I'm down.

I got every other kinda football game!!

- Madden 06 360
- NCAA 2006 (they better write a BC patch for 360)
- ESPN 2k5 (ditto)
- Blitz The League (double ditto!)

(tied NFL Street but just couldnt get into it)

well, the promotional advertizement for this looks cool, but arena football is pretty lame. so i can only imagine that this game is just a second rate madden.

I dunno, I had season tickets last year to the Everett Hawks and I hafta say it was pretty damn cool. High energy, fast paced, high scoring games. Thats pretty much what got me into arena football.

It looks pretty awesome. Plays OK (if you like Madden-ball, ESPN2k5 is STILL a better engine!). It lacks all the extras though ... no mini camp, drills, franchise stuff, etc. I dont miss all that too much, but true Maddenites bitched hard that they removed it all. On a HD TV it looks KILLER!!!!!! I saw 360's at Best Buy the other day, 30 or so .... spendy but worth it!!

Well its not bad. I would say that out of 5 stars Id give it a 3.5. It has the same refs voices as in Madden. The gameplay is very similar to NFL 2K5. Very arcadish, if you will. But for the price it aint too bad.

It sure as hell aint Madden though.

I do love the fact that late hits are encouraged.
