Summary: Great game, true classic Tecmo. Only downfall is every team's players have the same #, for example every QB is #9, and editing the teams in a tedious process. Game also gets a little repetitive, but still very entertaining!
Pat, I think these people are here for a game of FOOTBALL!!!

Summary: I would like to start off by saying I'm not a Maddenite when it comes to football video games. Running a long season, tracking stats, trading players, these things are not what I look for. What I like is a simple, fun to play football game that I can truck through real quick, and this game gives me that in spades. Passing and running plays are simply executed, and the presentation is fast paced and enjoyable.
Summary: I expected Tecmo Bowl like it used to be. The teams would have established players with their own unique stats. These players would give each team a unique strength and weakness. That's how it used to be. These players would compliment the pre-selected plays and allow a chance to play, or replay, a season with the unique play that only tecmo bowl can create. This wasn't it at all. Every player on this game is "customizable.
Summary: Overall for the price a fun football game. My 8 year old and I have played this a lot this holiday. The gameplay is fun especially the easy play calling. Playing a Detroit Lions(edited the name easily) season and we're 13-2 thus far entering the playoffs. Yes there are no real teams, but come on, this a DS game. To me a DS game should entertain my pre-kids. Graphics are way better than the original NES Tecmo that we downloaded to wii.
Great FOOTBALL classic is back.....too easy to master

Summary: Plays the like the original TechmoBowl...too bad they didnt just reboot the "SuperBowl" version, but this has some upside....and some downside. The BAD: On a kickoff, you MUST run it out of the End Zone or it's a Safety. A major flaw for sure, so...just run it out. One HUGE flaw is when you are selecting the next play, you have NO IDEA where you are on the field! I mean how could they not catch this??
Summary: This is a Great game.This game is not less fun because its not NFL teams or players. Actually for all teams, I changed the names of the teams to the NFL teams, and i made their uniforms look like their team. Just for the Browns, cause their my favorite team, i changed all of the players names to the names of the Browns players. this game is tons of fun. it is just football and thats what i wanted.
Summary: When I was a teenager in the early-mid 90s, Tecmo Super Bowl was probably my most-played NES game ever--even beating out other personal favorites such as Final Fantasy, Zelda, StarTropics and the Castlevania series. TSB was addictive like crack, extremely fun as a two-player quick-fix with buddies, and had infinite replayability due to its season mode and stat tracking. I still own a copy for the NES, with a recently-replaced save battery.
