There are very mixed reviews coming in about Matrix Games’ Maximum Football. Reading in-between the lines (I don’t own the game), seems Matrix Games followed the artists formally known as .400 Software Studios business model. You release a broken game, full paying customers become unpaid beta-testers, and then you finally get the product that should have been released in the first place.
Sorry, been there and done that.
The good news is that folks are generally hopefull that when it is finally fixed, Maximum Football will be purchase worthy. However, with no financial model, I can only see this being used as a college or highschool simulator at best.
