Summary: I bought this on a whim as a silly gift for my husband. Little did I know it would keep him entertained (especially during the NFL lockout when he thought there might be no football this year!) for month after month after month.
Summary: No, this is certainly not a competitor to Madden. But it is a fun, intriguing game. The graphics and controls really are top-of-the-line, but it is made like to look like a cartoon game and has terrible commentary. But it is fun and enjoyable, and if you get it cheap, it's not a bad purchase
Summary: I received this game for Christmas and am pleased with it. You can play at a level which is for you, and when they say Hard, they mean HARD. I play this all the time. But I dont like how you cant customize your custom players hardly at all and Chuck calls you a boy or a girl depending on what...
Summary: My 5-year old loves this game. He tried his hand at Madden and gets frustrated with calling the plays. These plays are simpler and offer guidance for him. His favorite part is that he can beat my husband with trick plays.
Summary: I bought this game for my 6 year old, since he really wanted a football game to play with his Daddy. He had asked for Madden 2010, but I thought that Madden would be too difficult for a 6 year old so I went with this one. He loves it!
Summary: I bought this for my brother (age 21) for Christmas and he really enjoyed it. It's a good game for a lot of ages because of the difficulty settings. On easy you don't really have to select which players you want to throw the ball to, just make the motions with the Wii remote.
Summary: I purchased Backyard Football 2009 for Wii to give to my niece(age 11) for Christmas and she could not have been happier. My nephew(age 13) couldn't wait to play the game with his sister! From what I understand, this is a great game and it even appeals to teens.
Summary: Grabbed this game as a Christmas present for my 6 year old nephew. Now we can't snatch the thing away from him. The colorful graphics and action filled plays keep him coming back for more. It's easy to play and builds hours of fun.
