  • Summary: worth it. Totally faithful to original. Happy to have brad muster and neal anderson in the backfield again. when they fix the online drops and get a ranking system going this will help. Wish they had the option to have online season play with friends.

  • Summary: Good for a walk down memory lane, especially against another person. The game has the same fun and addictive quality that old school Tecmo Bowl has. Newcomers to Tecmo Bowl might be put off by some of the game's football inaccuracies though.

  • Summary: A lot of people that review this game obviously did not play the original Tecmo and Super Tecmo Bowl......This new bubblegum version of the game is crap and is a disgrace to the original. First off you do not even have the same original teams you had in the original version...
