Pro Strategy Football 2021

Pretty decent Pro Football SIM.  Reminds me of Front Page Football 98 (which is high praise).
In early access but eminently playable.  Mods for various NFL/AFL teams and decades.....
even a college football mod.  Worth a look if you're into American football.

It's actually fully released, they didn't have any early access for the game.

In the past I was hesitant on this game because it wasn't as robust as some of the other football games, but for some reason this year it has really clicked.  I like it a lot and have played it quite a bit since released.  At first I thought I wanted to have all the bells and whistles of GM type games, but turns out I actually like it's simplicity.  Developer support has been great and for only $20, well worth the price in my opinion.

I've played & enjoyed the 2020 version (once I'd got the NFL league mod) so may well get the 2121 version for the updated teams & I think slightly better "action" graphics. The latter is the games only weakness IMO as whilst the 80's arcade style has some charm, I'd prefer a straight top down view with player names/positions like 2nd & Ten.

Heh, this is such a delightfully Groggy thing to say.   :notworthy:

Game looks great, for $20 how can I say no?  I tried to get into OOTP years ago but found it mind-boggling.  This looks a lot more manageable.

If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

If yer lookin' for the general, I know where he is...

But in 2nd and Ten, there is zero animation...just shows field position:)  ActionPC Football has top down view, names, etc and has animation (although maybe not always the best but very serviceable).

As for 2021 version of PS Football, they added names on the field for key players prior to the play so it has improved things a little.  I didn't play a lot of the past versions so I can't really comment how different anything else is.

Yes, that's all true, which is how I ended up buying PS football, as on balance I thought it the better game (even with the space invader graphics :)). There's also a lot more explanation of plays which for me as a relative newbie is very welcome. Adding names is definitely a plus.
