Take-Two Hardly Pleased By All-Pro Football Reception

Take Two, this just isn't your day. Or year. Despite having the very best intentions with their All-Pro Football 2K8 game (namely given Madden any, competition), things haven't gone too well. Yeah, it looks like the same old NFL2K game, but without the NFL teams it's fallen a little flat. Like, nobody's buying it. Prompting CEO and President Ben Feder to state during a conference call today that:

"We're not terribly pleased and not disappointed. We're watching closely and are going to react proactively when Madden comes out. We know we're in competition with them."

The story is too old to be commented.

I would have brought it if it was 25 bucks like 2k5 or at least 35. I mean this one doesn't even have the NFL license! DAMN YOU EA! DAMN YOU!

It does suck.
Paid $60.00 and it sucks.

Oh well.

This game is beautiful graphically. No disrespect to the legends in it but I want the updated rosters. That is the one thing that made me change my mind about getting this game. As much as I hate EA for milking the game every year, I just have to buy Madden every year because of the NFL license. There's really no other options out there.

What kills it for me is no franchise. I build a team with some overrated players and some no bodies, play a season, have to start over and build another team.

I wish there were no legends (except maybe as unlockables) that you just had a selection of players like in NCAA (yes I know they are supposed to be someone, but prove it), that you could build your team and then use drafting\recruiting to continue to make your team better.

Sure I may never get around to playing more then 2-3 seasons but it gives the sense of longevitiy and makes it easier for me to part with my $60. Now I am still undecided.

I was NOT impressed with NCAA 08 demo altough the 07 someone loaned me is ok. I expect no real improvements in madden although it seems better then the crpfest of 06. I feel that the only way EA will ever bring madden and NCAA finally into the next gen is if they get lower sales so I have a hard time justifying paying full price for those halfassed games. Thus I feel I should buy 2k....but since its missing an entire mode I again feel I am getting ripped off at $60 (though I am told by a friend who has it that the details that madden ignores are at least there).

I go back and forth trying to decide which to get. If my friend lets me keep NCAA 07 for a while I may just skip them all and pick up one of the hockey games to go along with all the non sports games I am going to get. Ironically which hockey game is going to be a tough choice since EA has competition they actually try to make a good game for that sport.

judging by the demo it had nothing on NFL 2K5.
