    Tecmo Bowl Throwback is exactly what it claims to be, and it freshens up the classic version of the game without completely changing it (read: ruining it). Publishers working on remakes of older titles would be well-served in taking a page out of Tecmo's book in keeping the changes minimal and the nostaligia-factor high.
  2. Tecmo Bowl Throwback manages to achieve what it set out to do, delivering a nostalgic trip down memory lane, while adding a fresh lick of paint and an online multiplayer.
  3. There’s definitely a bit of lag when playing online but it’s also a big bonus and certainly the biggest addition to the franchise in question.

    The fact that you can switch visual styles on the fly is great, but it seems to handcuff what the rest of the package could’ve presented. The modes are lacking, despite the fact that the gameplay (regardless of HD or non-HD visuals) is wonderfully nostalgic.
  5. While Tecmo Bowl Throwback definitely scratches your nostalgia itch (if you have one), it's just plain and not very fun in the long run in this day and age.
