Madden 2010 Gets AFL Legacy Pack Today

AFL football>EA will release yet another Madden 2010 video game update today. The AFL Legacy Pack download is now available for Madden 10. The pack pays tribute to the AFL and will integrate classic AFL presentations and uniforms into Madden. The download is available on Xbox Marketplace and the PSN store.

I have mixed feelings about these Madden add-ons. On the one hand, I love the aggressive approach to this year’s Madden game. EA has already put out a couple of roster updates and now this pack. On the other hand, I firmly believe that you should only have to pay once when you buy a game. There is no reason that this pack couldn’t have been included in the already $60 I paid for Madden.

The press release from EA says – Available on September 24th, the comprehensive add-on brings the heritage of the AFL to Madden NFL 10 with all-new 1960’s-style presentation elements. Referees don the orange striped AFL uniforms, official AFL markings and logos decorate the field, and more – all while featuring a retro football card-like user interface and classic film grain broadcast camera.

The pack also allows you to play all eight original AFL teams. The teams will be donned with their AFL uniforms. Current teams will be altered to represent their AFL originals. The Buffalo Bills, Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs (as the Dallas Texans), New England Patriots (as the Boston Patriots), New York Jets (as the Titans of New York), Oakland Raiders, San Diego Chargers and Tennessee Titans (as the Houston Oilers) are all given a makeover with the AFL pack.

The press release also says that pack will be integrated into the offline franchise mode. So if you have the Chargers and the Titans playing during the season, you will see the game presented as an AFL game with uniforms, refs, etc. Players can select AFL uniforms anytime offline or online for their respective teams.

I am probably going to pass on this useless AFL Pack. I can tell you something I would spend money on. EA could make millions creating a pack that allows you to download true NCAA rosters into your franchises. While the option is available, the only way to get true rosters is to pay $20 online or sit there and meticulously do it yourself. I would even go for an additional NFL historic team pack like the old games used to have.
