Action! PC Football
Action! PC Football is the most comprehensive stat-based football game on the market. Action! PC Football is designed to challenge your mind and not your fingers. Play results are determined by lineups, play calls and strategy rather than joystick skill and dice rolls. You’re the coach with hundreds of strategy options available! In Action! PC Football, players are rated using every available published statistic as well as expert subjective analysis. Each player performs as he did in real life with amazing statistical accuracy. Action! PC Football also includes extensive player, team, and league statistical reports.
Play games head-to-head, over the internet, or against the computer. Relive past seasons as the coach of your favorite team; draft teams and play games in a league; let the computer manage all of the teams and watch the results; or set your coaching preferences for a specific team and let the computer play a season with your coaching profile. Any way you play, you’ll love the statistical accuracy and strategy Action! PC Football brings to your home computer.
Action! PC Football is a detailed, comprehensive, and challenging football simulation game, yet is so simple to play you may never need to refer to the manual.
To call a play, the offensive coach simply clicks on the name of the play such as "sweep left" or “short slant”, and then clicks the ball carrier or primary receiver. Plays may also be called by first clicking on the ball carrier or intended receiver, and then choosing from a list of available plays for that player. In addition to having manu basic plays to choose from, the offensive coach also has the option of toggling between one of 13 pre-saved platoons (3 tight ends, 5 wide receivers, full house backfield or any combination possible). The offense also has a list of options that can further enhance the play. These options include shotgun, roll-out, play action, run counter, head out of bounds, and many others. You can even read the defense and call audibles at the line of scrimmage!
Defensive play calling is flexible and customizable. The defensive coach selects one of 16 platoons (4-3, 3-4, nickel, dime, etc. ), and calls a defensive play (basic, run defense, pass defense, prevent, or goal line defense). On any play, a coach can also set pass coverage style and depth, aggressiveness, defensive line play, run keys, double coverages, blitzers and many other options. The defense can even use deception tactics such as showing or disguising a blitz in order to protect against audibles, or to lure the offense into bad audibles.
Once both offensive and defensive plays have been called, the computer generates both a play result and a radio style play-by-play description. Every factor that affects real life results is built into the game formulas. On any given play, these include player ratings and statistics, strategies and play calls, field position, wind and weather, home field advantage, and player fatigue; just to name a few! Penalties, injuries, and replay challenges all occur with realistic frequency.
On special teams, choose kick off deep, kick away from the primary kick returner, squib kick, or onside kick. On punts, choose to punt deep, angle the punt, pooch punt, or fake. The return team may try to block the punt, return the punt, call for a fair catch, let the punt roll, or guard against fakes.
With our video chalkboard, you have the option of watching your play results with ball movement as well as complete offensive and defensive player movement!
