NFL Football

Genre: Sports    |     Year: unknown    |     Publisher: unknown    |     Developer: unknown
Game Review (written by Shannon) Added on: 08/01/2008
NFL Football is a late seventies fully licensed title that was converted from the coin operated arcade games for play on the personal computer. Konami was the driving force behind the original, while APh Technological Consulting created this version for release by Mattel Electronics, the toy gurus. It also saw action on the Atari 2600. This is a management style of game that also features some arcade style sports action.
Since NFL Football is a fully licensed title, the user can access all thirty teams that were in the league at the time of this game’s release.
Other realistic features of the game include the fact that calling and executing plays is timed, leaving the user only forty-five seconds to get the job done. There are a total of only nine plays available to the user, so selecting one should not be too much of a chore. There are running plays, passing plays, as well as the decisions to punt or kick a field goal. Also reflective of real life, the gamer can in cur penalties, which range in severity according to the infraction, such as delay of game and so forth. The “delay” penalty is one of the best ones to keep the pace of the game at a rapid clip.

unrealistic, as well. This does not detract from the game play, as long as the user goes into the experience understanding that NFL Football does not take itself too seriously or make an attempt to be a micromanaging simulation. The most obvious discrepancy within the program is the fact that each team is fielded by only five men. This makes executing plays very simple, but does not add any realistic factors to the game. The lack of play options can also be cited as an unrealistic element.
Beyond that, the user can play in four different difficulty ratings, including high school, college, semi-professional and professional. He can play in preseason games, regular season games, and the Super Bowl if he is good enough, or he can simply scrimmage and practice within his own squad. Playing a single season is still a fast paced option, since it will only consist of only a few games that are an hour in length, just like the regular games.
Overall, this game is simple, but that is what makes it good and so easy to learn. There isn’t going to be much in the way of frustration, and the user still has the fun of calling plays as the manager, and executing them on the field as a player. The learning curve is practically nothing, and most gamers will be enjoying this one just a couple of minutes after a download.
