Arena Football: Road to Glory review

Not putting the AFL on the map just yet


  • Having all AFL/AFL2 teams
  • Familiar controls
  • Bouncing over the boards


  • Choppy framerate
  • Desultory arenas
  • Disinterested commentary

Against odds longer than those of the Arizona Cardinals winning a Super Bowl, Arena Football has somehow survived despite a hyper-crowded sports and entertainment landscape. In fact, it’s more popular than ever, as proven by a big fat television contract (now called by ESPN’s popular Mike and Mike in the Morning crew) and Electronic Arts’ exclusive AFL video game license. While still a blip on the radar in the grand scheme of things, its frenetic pace and over-the-top style has earned a spot in the sports conversation; all of which proves, of course, that Americans plum love their football.
