It's prime football season, and it seems Gameloft's looking to take advantage of that with the release of NFL Pro 2013, one of only three fully NFL-licensed complete football experience games on the Play Store.

Presumably looking to take on the likes of EA's Madden franchise, NFL Pro 2013 claims to be the only free-to-play football simulation (kind of a niche, am I right?) currently available. Compared to last year's version, you're getting better graphics, a brand-new team management system, and a rather interesting first-person play mode (not sure how that's going to work out).

Considering we're using both free-to-play and Gameloft in the same sentence here, expect to start forking over cash to advance at some point or another. Economics aside, though, the game's visuals look genuinely impressive, and while the screenshots don't exactly say much about gameplay, Gameloft is known for turning out some of the highest quality titles on Android, so I'd set my expectations fairly high. Given their experience with soccer (read: real football) games, I'd guess the team management system is pretty robust. That said, I haven't had a chance to try it myself.

But, it's free, so you can! Hit up the Play Store to grab it now.

    Two big releases from Gameloft today. Not bad.

  • William

    Not compatible on my Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Hmmm?

    • William

      Just a update, now it shows that it is compatible.

      • Chinedu Adiele

        what update did you make? please respond as soon as possible! thanks

  • Andrew Coffman

    Not compatible with Sprint Epic Touch 4G (although I'm not surprised), not yet available on Amazon for Kindle Fire.

  • aNYthing6

    Yeah, not compatible with my S III. Something is wrong.

  • Iggy

    I love the fact that the author of this review has yet to try it out! Not trying out PRIOR to giving a opinion = FAIL in my opinion!

    • aNYthing6

      Where do you see a review? Where do you see an opinion?

      • Iggy

        This guy has clearly set up this article as a review....he has analyzed the quality of the simulation, the graphics, etc....he doesn't need to state "review" for it to be one. Isn't that what this whole website is about anyway...to give opinions about emerging technology???? Just saying.

        • ScottColbert

          Yes, I'm sure none of that info would be in a press release or description on the play store. Sorry you can't tell the difference between news and a review.

          • Iggy

            It's not news...but whatever. Apparently, no one else that follows this website passed English class. And apparently no one has a sense of humor, either. Double FAIL.

          • Ootytooty

            uMad brah?

      • RockMSockMNY

        Agreed. This is clearly an announcement for a game, not a review.

    • GazaIan

      Wow, this is why I love the Internet. Dumbasses like you are everywhere.

      This is not a review. If it was a review, it would actually say "REVIEW" in the title, and the article would actually be a review.

  • TweetrGuy

    "one of only three fully NFL-licensed complete football experience games" Did you make that up on the spot? This game is not fully licensed, if it where it would include the actual players names.

      maybe they ran out of geebees to store the names in

    "...and while the screenshots don't exactly say much about gameplay, Gameloft is known for turning out some of the highest quality titles on Android..."

    I'm sorry to say this mate, but you live in an alternate-reality.

    • http://twitter.com/misterE33 Mr E

      Gameloft takes a lot of heat for some reason, but they really do put out some of the better games on Android. Maybe it's not saying much, but still. They do put out derivative crap too, to be fair.

  • fundun

    Sure. It runs on the Nexus 7 but not compatible with Transformer Infinity. Damn you Gameloft!

  • dg

    Just ran thru the tutorial on my galaxy s3 and it seems pretty good so far but am disappointed that rosters are not updated. 5 weeks into the season! My team is the Chicago bears and no Brandon (whatever his last name is gonna be) Marshall

  • Corvell
