    NFL Rivals is a great arcade football game that will always put a smile on any football fan's face. If you've enjoyed the Backbreaker series, or you can't get enough NFL action, this is definitely a title to add to your iPhone's collection.

    If you're not burned out on the Backbreaker franchise, and the addition of the NFL license intrigues you, there's really no reason not to give this a go for some old fashioned violent football fun.

    Both visually strong and effortlessly old skool, NFL Rivals is an addictive arcade take on American football.

    Teaming up NaturalMotion with the NFL was a stroke of genius. This is a developer with a proven track record for football fun, so it's really a win-win scenario for everyone involved.

    So if you enjoyed the Backbreaker Football games and simply want more of the same action, you're free to ignore the team-based meta game. But for die-hard NFL fans it provides an extra layer of interactivity that gives you some extra incentive to keep playing. After all, we can't let those Patriots stay on top of the rankings forever.
