Towards the end of 2004 a terrible announcement was made. EA locked up the NFL license exclsuively. It was evident how they put less work into Madden NFL 06 and 07 than the other titles. NFL 2K5 was great and the competition made Madden great that year too. 2K convinced many to buy NFL 2K5 with its $20 price. T.O. was on the cover, he’s changed uniforms (Dallas sucks) and 2K Football disappeared because they couldn’t make a NFL football game.
Well today 2K Sports announced All-Pro Football 2K8!
Recommendation for 2K8: Don’t put a football player on the cover, bad things happen to athletes on covers of football games.
