InformationGaelic Games: Football
was released on November 11, 2005 on the Playstation 2.
It was the first GAA simulation game to be released. The game featured the official stadiums and clubs but not the GAA
players as developers Transmission Games
never got the GAA Players Assocation license. The orignial was met with very poor reviews for the game being too hard, for its clunky controls and poor graphics. The game got a follow up, Gaelic Games: Football 2
, which was released on November 17, 2007 on the PlayStation 2. Again like the first game, Gaelic Games: Football 2 did not have the GAA Players license. This game was noted for being better than Gaelic Games: Football. It had smoother controls and an easier difficulty. Released around the same time as Gaelic Games: Football 2 was Gaelic Games: Hurling
which was also developed by Transmission Games and was released November 9, 2007 on the PlayStation 2. The game was the first ever hurling game which the gamer could control the players on the pitch. Like the other two games in the franchise, Gaelic Games: Hurling did not have the official player license. Gaelic Games: Football 2 and Gaelic Games: Hurling were also released in a twin pack in November 2007.
