Critic Reviews for AFL 23

AFL 23 is inconsistent in its attempts to emulate the most complicated sport on the planet. It jags six points by delivering arguably the best gameplay we've had, but doesn't make the distance in serving up a complete, robust package.

There’s more work to do with AFL 23, and I’m expecting regular patching for a few weeks yet.

That’s a ridiculously low bar to cross, I know, but once Big Ant have brought in the final features and refined the mechanics to fully realise their vision, this will be a truly impressive representation of one of the most iconic parts of Australian culture.
