Looks like this game's main draw is its graphical features. You can watch your guys run around, customize their jerseys, the field, ect. Doubt it has the same depth that FOF has.
Not many reviews on steam, only 6, which is odd. I've never seen that few. For what it's worth here are the more detailed reviews.
Bandog says: "This is a close call for me.
I don't like that you can't simply rename your team or players in game. I guess it can be done with file editing, etc, but it seems to be more work than I want to do. The same goes for adjusting the stats for players. I don't really agree with a lot of scores the programmer gave to teams, and I should be able to edit these things in game IMO.
I don't like that this game thinks that teams switch between a 3-4 and a 4-3 based on down and distance. Most teams play a base defense of either a 3-4 or a 4-3 and then play most of the game in nickel. Teams require different kinds of players to run a 3-4 vs a 4-3, so this just doesn't make sense. I know there are teams that play hybrid schemes, but they don't switch to improve their defense vs the run the way this game implies, but more to disguise what they are doing. I remember hating this in the football games made 20 years ago, so maybe this guy was just trying to generate nostalgia. I don't know.
Still, I don't know of another game out there that can scratch the itch I had/have for this kind of old school football sim. I loved calling the plays and watching the action 20 years ago, and I still love it. This game is good enough IMO."
Dream Teams says "This has quickly become one of my favorite pc sports games. I'm what you would call a fictional leaguer. Just love creating fictional leagues, teams, and even from time-to-time players. PSF provides the customization to do all this and more. Plus the developer is looking into adding even more custom options in the future. If you enjoy customizing and tinkering with real or fictional leagues then I'd suggest you give this game a try. Especially if you're comfortable with editing or learning to customize graphics outside the game. And if not, there are several complete third party sets that are available, as well.
What sets PSF 2019 apart from it's predecessor is the level of customization. In this version you can customize teams, players, fields, matchup helmets, midfield logos, stadium walls, championship field and even sounds. I was able to create a complete 32 team fictional world that I call the Metro Football League (MFL). I thought PSF 2018 was a blast, but this version definitely tops it in terms of customization.
Want a quick glimpse of some of the things I've been able to do and are possible? Click on my profile and then locate/click the screenshot link. Hopefully it will inspire you to create your very own fictional football world."
Redskin Chief says "I absolutely love this game. This is a superb American Football simulation. The user interface is excellent and the attention to detail to plays you can call is amazing. You can send players in motion, blitz individual players, really anything you want. The whole game is so realistic. You can coach your team through as many seasons as you want with a great draft system to improve your squad and build a dynasty. You can even just watch simulated games if you want to. Another great feature is you can have unlimited leagues, edit teams and player names and attributes.
Willie_Dynamite says "This game has the potential to be the best graphical football simulator on the market. There has been a void in the PC football gaming community since the Front Page Sports Football Pro series met its demise in 1999. There are some great spreadsheet football game simulator on the market (Front Office Football and DDS) but none offer the graphical simulator that tons of fans would like. With a motivated developer and a great engine, this game has the potential to meet all sim football gamers needs. Easily modded and very intuitive. I can't wait to see the future of this game moving forward,"
