    From app presentation, to CCG elements for players, and plush gameplay that will last for hours, Football Heroes is more than a “beat ‘em up”; it is a major leap forward in the mobile sports genre and a testament to what can be achieved with great development and patience.

    Football Heroes is a fun pigskin game that offers a continual stream of great moments, though it’s held back by unintelligent computer opponents.

    Football Heroes is a great game for football fans, or arcade fans allowing for some hectic action on iOS that makes for a worthwhile download.

    While Football Heroes is hardly the next NFL Blitz, it is a fun little football romp to play when taking a break from Madden. It's worth a trip to the end zone.

    Football Heroes has a good game of football at its core, but some of the missing features are killer.

    I love this game, and I'm not even a football fan. Definitely a throwback to Tecmo Bowl and classic arcade/sports games. Really polished, cool customizations (create your own team logo!), and super easy to learn controls. And the price is awesome (free!). Expand

    This game is great fun. Exactly like Super Tecmo Bowl with power-ups. You don't have to like football to really enjoy this game. Not sure why it took so long to make a great football game like this on IOS and it's free. I believe the developers have only scratched the surface with this one and it will only get better. Online play will make this a must have game. Expand
