Summary: We had never heard of the Backyard series and since my son doesn't really play on his DS I was hesitant to get it.....boy was I wrong. He loves this game (I hear they have all kinds of sports versions so I may have to check into others).
Summary: My 8 year old son loves hockey and loves this game. With the NHL lockout, there has not been much hockey in my house and this was a great replacement for all the fans in the house. It was an easy game for him to pick up and learn.
