Well the game is finally here, came out on sale today! Let's talk about it in this thread. What do you like/dislike? Talk through career modes and online play and whatever else you wanna discuss about the game :D

I'll have a little look around tonight, see what it's like.

Waiting a few weeks on it, drop in price and find out whether it's good or complete shower like AFL Live 1 and 2

Pretty much this, but I also don't have the console for it. I'll probably play it with a mate who gets/has it and then work out if I really want it or not.

played a few normal games hten started a career as be a pro

one little thing i noticed was i decided to be a FF for Essendon
so it automatically put Joe Daniher in the reserves and i cannot swap him in even though mitch brown is CHF

so seems sioly so if you went say RR for cats then it could kick danger or selly out seems silly

Seems to be one of the biggest complaints I've seen about the game. Should really have made sub-AFL levels - WAFL, VFL, SANFL, NEAFL (and their reserve sides) - and have you play for one of those until your skills/form warrant AFL selection, rather than jumping straight to starting in the AFL team. Don't even have to program the sub-AFL levels with real players and/or teams to avoid licensing and all that crap, just make up teams and competitions to play sub-AFL - e.g. if you are drafted by Freo you could play for the Mandurah Lightning or whatever. Like really how much time/effort/money would doing that have used as opposed to having the stupidest thing in the world and having you instantly start at your position no matter what.

MLB the Show does this really great - starts you off in Double-A competition (third level) after being drafted, then as your skills and form improve you get promoted to Triple-A (second level), then eventually to the MLB.

technically if you want you can start in TAC or VFL

Seeing as Don Bradman Cricket starts at club level with made up teams surely they could've done a state league comp for this. As it's the same people making it (I think?)

Seeing as NHL, NBA and Fifa havent got the greatest Be a Pro systems, you cant really expect the AFL too.

So theoretically that would make the game play more like AFL Live 2
