I play this game and it is absolutely the BEST FOOTBALL SIM on the market bar none. The playbook is phenomenal, you get every player, and the realism isout of this world. Makes SOM, FOF and Mogul shameful (at least on the field).

Re: Action Football Pc

What is this game like as far as during the game are there actual player graphics? And does this game come with the real NFL 2011 rosters? Thanks

There is a field on the game play screen and you can set it to watch an X and O animation the play after you pick the play. Nothing like Madden of course.

It does come with the actual NFL Rosters (2010)but you have to download the real logos and if you want logos on the field there are sites to download them from as well.

I just downloaded this from the PC Action football site and I am enjoying it. Still have a lot to learn though. It does come with a digital manual and strategy guide which will be of some help.

They have a projection disk that comes out around football season which will include the 2011 rosters and new draft picks for the upcoming season. Keep in mind...although it has an animation chalk board, it is NOT a videogame like Madden. The focus is on realism and football strategy, similar to games like SOM. If you want realism, it is the best text football game on the field, bar none. If you don't like text games, you should stay away.

I play both SOM and APC, but have to say APC football is a much better game. It has so many more options than SOM football and plays great. Easier interface and, like all APC games you can customizeit to suit your needs. Logos, fields, photos, ballparks.

there was a post earlier saying that you have to "download" logos etc. This is true since they dont have the rights to nfl logos etc. There are a TON of sites out there where you can get these items from.

But as the person in the previous post said, this is a TEXT simulation with emphasis on coaching and team management. I am in 2 baseball and 2 football online leagues and have a ball. And one important area where APC has it all over strat is internet play. Its quick and easy to get connected and play a game over the internet

Yeah, nothing out there as good as APC football on the field. It is not really a GM game, but in terms of on the field, it is far ahead of everything else I've come across. I love it.

Pro Football Simulator has to be at worst at par with this game. The on field options may not be as good in terms of coaching but as a Manager game its at worst even. Can't pick each play, but you can set your playbook, set your strategies and watch the game with a in game 2d play viewer.

PFS has everything this game has and more. Custom playbooks, custom league formats, Fictional/Historical/Current Roster options.

The game also doesn't require you to buy a new version every year, and comes out with nearly monthly updates which put other updates to shame.

Well I can't agree that these games are on par with each other. In one game you are able able to pick your play and an another you can't. To me being able to call your own plays is a big part of a football simulation.
