    I think that this game should have more players like Daunte Culpepper, Randy Moss Torry Holt, Deuce Macallester, Preist Holmes, and Cris Carter.

    Absolutely beautiful game!! They say that it has a "kiddy" appeal, but I'm 42 years old and I love it. It's all I play all day long!

    The peppy game exudes plenty of personality, and young fans will love the smart game play. [Sept 2002, p.163]
  2. Granted, some of the three-dimensional effects are very nice, but at times, the game looks like a title in the Lego series, and not the carefree, cartoonish game that has become so enjoyable.
  3. Although Backyard Football may work for a seven-year-old, few others would get much enjoyment from it. Lacking serious refinement in most areas, the “cute” style of gameplay wears off quickly and leaves few reasons to come back.
