Ratesports APF Franchise Thread

I'm going to start a APF 2K8 Franchise with the Ratesports season file shortly and I wanted to make a thread updated weekly.

Special thanks to Ratesports for providing the file. I've logged hours on your files and you Sir have my upmost respect.. If you all don't know already give it a run. Its not perfect but the gameplay, player movement, and passing game is still the best available..

I'm rolling with the Broncos, Legend difficulty, everything default except human catching is going to be bumped up to 30.
9 min quarters, accelerated clock on, EQ off, and all penalties at default.

For what its worth, I am not an APF Legend player but decent. I started playing about 2010 and I'm still learning the game..

Back with week 1 in a bit.

thanks for reading...

Re: Ratesports APF Franchise Thread

Week 1 MIA @ DEN

Man.. what a defensive slugfest. the Dolphin offense was putrid and mine was worse! the cpu brought a good pass rush and did a great job of disquising their coverages, I couldn't run the ball and struggled to get first downs.

If it wasn't for a generic T. Holliday taking a KO 94 yards for a touchdown I would have been in trouble.

Next up Buffalo Bills

Franchise? Intrigued. How does that work when there's only a single season mode? Absolutely made no sense why 2k simply didn't program it to where legends would simply retire after so many seasons leaving generic generated players to take their place.

This is one game for why I still have my PS3. Recently grabbed an xbox 360 slim to play NFL 2k5 with updated rosters.

Splurge on the 360 version of this game for 2 bucks.

I can actually whip that out tonight for my 360 slim, I think. My buddy offloaded a bunch of PS3 and 360 games at my place that he no longer plays. I am quite certain xbox 360 APF2K8 is in there somewhere. Apparently, one of the drawbacks to getting married for him was less time for video games.

Still, I thought the 360 version is also a one and done season? If there's actually multiple season/franchise mode for the 360, then I pretty much have my football fix covered with my 360.

EDIT: Nevermind, apparently I don't have APF2k8 for xbox360. I think it still might be with my buddy. If I do get it, is there a franchise mode, or a definite way to get franchise mode going?

There is no franchise mode on 360 or PS3. They could've at least gone with a story mode like Blitz did. 2K really blew it there. Still the best playing football game ever made though.

Re: Ratesports APF Franchise Thread

Week 2 Buff @ Den..

what an Awesome game and totally different from week 1.

My offense if improving as I'm starting to get some timing down on the routes but its tough. Manning seems to throw better to the right side of the field. I need to run the ball more Lol

I like to user control the safeties and a few times I got caught in the wash or out of position and CJ Spiller went into full Beast mode and made me pay.

Early in the fourth I was in a cover 2 and got caught looking in the backfield, Manuel stepped up in the pocket and delivered a perfect 55 yard lob to Johnson for the score. Johnson high stepped in to the end zone Lol.

The cpu is playing well imo... they make me pay when I'm out of position and attack the area in my defense where I'm most vulnerable. Manuel took off a time or two..
