    You have to pay for just about every play. You have to pay for medium and long passes. You have to pay for defence. You have to pay to use each and every Playbook. If you want strategies you must pay. Whenever you take your turn you are presented with plays and playbooks that you are told you have to pay to use. Unless you want to play free using all short passes and no strategies you must pay. Worse than world of Warcraft. Zero points from me. You spend all your time wondering what you have to buy just to play. This is both greed & in app purchase gone totally out of control. Thank Apple for this tragedy. Its like having to pay a $ each time you want to move a piece on a chessboard. What on earth has this world come to. Shameless greed. $10 for the game OK but in app purchases if you buy the complete set will cost you over $200. That Gameloft stoops so low makes me honestly feel very sad for them. Where is their sense of justice and fairplay? Games need a regulator. This is madness.

      Gameloft is a good example of why some people choose to pirate instead of buy.

      Modern Combat 3 costs $7 but they still want more money once you start playing the game.

        Never a good reason to pirate. Just buy Madden NFL 12 or Shadowgun or another game without in game purchases if your against it.

    It's a little late in the season for a "NEW" American Football game, isn't it? Don't make me pay for something that is released with 2 weeks left in the season.

      There are always the playoffs, but you're right, it's way late this season. Kind of like when the MLB app came like 3 days before the final game.

      • JayMonster

        Actually, in all fairness, the MLB app was out earlier... They just lowered the price to something reasonable at the end of the season.

    Gameloft does it again...

    takes a solid game and destroys it with in-app charges that will empty your wallet.

    there certainly should be a cap on what you can potentially spend on an individual app.

    Madness does not begin to describe the insanity behind $200 to have a full featured game.

    sad when a game that had a chance to take the mobile reigns from Madden just falls so hard and so fast.

    Thanks Gameloft (Not.)

    After reading, apparently you CAN win in-game cash so you don't have to pay-to-play, unless there are certain plays that MUST be bought with real cash, as I've seen in some games.

    Unfortunately, it appears people are running into crashes as they get into week 2, preventing them from moving on and winning more in-game cash to get more plays.

    I'll probably hold off until they get the bugs worked out, if ever.

    But still, it would have been nice to have an option to either get a pay-to-play free version, or else pay for a full version without the need to pay-to-play.

    The in-game purchase movement amongst some of the more talented developers of fun games (Com2Us is extremely guilty of this as well) is incredibly annoying. You can't wipe your data; you can't upgrade your phone (without serious attention to backing up the application at the exact right time); you can't get a replacement phone after yours becomes lost/damaged and keep these in-game purchases because they're part of the app data. That's not buying; that's renting. Make a good game with a demo free version and a well crafted paid version. People will pay 10 dollars or more easily for something reliable. Nobody wants to shell out a pile of bucks for something that they can lose just hitting 'clear cache'.

    Some in app purchases will stay with you if the developer put the effort in and saved what you purchased to your gmail.

    I bought the extra levels in Cordy and every time I have moved to a new phone and wiped my device upon first launching the game it detects my purchase and opens the extra levels.

    Unfortunately most developers don't do the extra work and store that info. I wish Google made it a part of the system so in app purchases were stored by Google and automatically restored upon launching the game.

  • Dei

    I got burned badly by 9 Innings baseball. I paid 8 dollars to get rid of the ads that made the game nearly unplayable - and then switched phones. Installed the app; ads again. Contacted the dev, was told I was out of luck and would have to purchase again since its part of the app data.

    I told him no thank you, I'll go on the internet and badmouth your money-grubbing garbage company for eternity instead. I try to stay honest.

    There is a regulator. Its called: Your wallet. Nobody is forcing you to buy the game and there are other football games available in the market. Yeah, I agree its pretty shady on GameLoft's part to trick people into thinking "Oh free game!" and then trying to smack them with every charge available once they've downloaded. Just don't buy this crap and hopefully things change

  • Jaymoon

    While it's easy to just say "well don't buy it then", these warnings are necessary.

    If everyone is unaware of the greed in this game by Gameloft, they would just as easily see a free game and download it.

    I applaud those that are giving me a heads up about what kind of game this is. I now know to avoid this game, not recommend it, and warn others if it comes up in casual conversation. "Free" or not, I'll be passing on this one.

    Don't give Gameloft the satisfaction of "one more download". Avoid downloading and show them things need to change.
