David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said, "We're very happy to bring you such a major update so soon after the initial release. Thanks to the hard work of the Maximum-Football team, this update not only addresses the vast majority of outstanding issues, but also shows a glimpse some of the ongoing improvements that owners of Maximum-Football can expect."
Maximum-Football gives players total control over every aspect of a team, from drafting and training camp to play design to setting the very rules of the league. Primarily a coaching and management game, Maximum-Football is a robust North American Football game where you can change nearly every single aspect of the rules and features.

Utilize the robust play editing system to create your own playbook specifically tailored for the team you drafted and trained in the pre-season. Compete in player-run leagues and discover if you have what it takes for a championship ring.
It isn't just managing every aspect of a team though, Maximum-Football also features fully functional 3D coaching and arcade mode where you can watch the action or take the controls to run, pass, block, and tackle.
