Summary: I thought for sure this game was going to be like the classic NES game. While it does have a lot of great things going for it, it doesn't hold up after all this time. I tried to play seasons, but it is arduous and really not as fun as the original. It has some good graphics, good gameplay, but it's "ok" at best now. I'd much rather get my hands on the original NES game. It's ok on the go, but definitely lacks the longevity of the original classic.
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.
