Now that the NCAA football national champion has been crowned (LSU whooped on Ohio State), it’s time to look toward the beast that is the NFL playoffs. But today, EA told gamers “not so fast! Our version of the NFL is better,” as it has begun shipping NFL TOUR for the Xbox 360 and PS3. No offense to Madden NFL, of course….
In NFL Tour, complex controls are a thing of the past, as gamers can pull off amazing highlight-reel plays using only a few buttons in the fast-paced arcade action. NFL Tour is the latest version of NFL Street, basically, but with a new label and slightly “cleaner” vibe.
With real NFL players as teammates, players travel across the country to play against each of the NFL teams in newly custom-designed stadiums. For the first time in a football video game, gamers have a dynamic gameplay feature called “the Reversal System” that allows them to have complete control of the action when offensive and defensive players collide. With the Reversal System, players can use well-timed button commands to deliver a run stopping tackle or to break away from one.
The best part of the game, though, could be its price: NFL Tour is available for the PlayStation 3 (PS3) and the Xbox 360 for the low next-gen price of $39.99. If you’re interested, head over to Amazon to get it quick.
