Australian Gamer writes: "AFL Live is almost like watching the real thing. It’s fast paced, action packed and you have no control over any of it. With no tutorial, horrible instructions and unnecessarily complicated control scheme, AFL Live fails to live up to what should’ve been a revival of AFL games. Plenty of people will defend the fact that these local games don’t have the budget of the big EA titles, and they’d be right. Unfortunately, the problems with AFL Live have almost nothing to do with the production values, and everything to do with just being poorly designed."
