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.
Summary: I bought this game for my 6 and 8 year old sons. They absolutely love it! They are big sports fans, so it was perfect. The game uses a set list of players, which switch teams and positions. You can even create your own team, players, and coaches. It was easy for them to pick up the game without any instructions. A perfect gift for any hockey fan!
Summary: I looked all over for this game for my sons DS and I could not find it at any store, so I was thrilled that Amazon had this...new too! They do not make many hockey games for the DS so my son was very excited to get this....he loves it and says it is a lot of fun!
