It’s great to be a fan of American football these days, with more choice than ever before when deciding upon which game related to their favourite sport will suit them best. There’s already been the likes of Madden NFL 21 and Maximum Football 2020 releasing recently, but now Axis Football 2020 is ready to add another instalment of gridiron action to the Xbox One market.
Axis Football 2020 comes off the back of a rather disappointing outing last year, with Axis Football 2019 failing to produce enjoyable gameplay and lacking on the presentation front. Fortunately, this newest entry into the series promises to be massively improved in regards to the gameplay, including the likes of catches on the run, smarter line blocking and AI, and a whole lot more. Furthermore, it’s expected to feature animations during the action and will incorporate some new stadiums.
The real strength of the Axis Football games is the Franchise Mode and while it hasn’t dramatically changed this year, there are a couple of fresh start-up options which enable random rosters and unlimited funds to be put into place. Amongst the other additions are the inclusion of two-player Coach Mode locally – no online multiplayer though – and a stat tracking system for all football players’ careers within the league.
Should you hold the opinion that Axis Football 2020 is the American football offering for you, juke your way over to the Xbox Store and pay the required fee of £24.99. Do you reckon it’ll be able to outdo the competition this year? Get in touch and share your thoughts by leaving a comment below!
