You’d think that indoor gridiron exploits would translate perfectly to a video game. Alas, EA’s second title in the Arena Football series, Road to Glory, is searingly mediocre. Borrowing heavily from the Madden engine for gameplay and last year’s Arena Football debut for everything else, it will be instantly familiar and accessible to folks who’ve spent any time with either franchise. Passing, running, and playing defense all make use of the tried-and-true Madden control scheme, down to calling hot routes, audibles, spins, and jukes. Unless you’ve been under a sports game rock these past ten years or so, you’ll be able to jump right in.
