  1. NFL Tour doesn’t go to cartoonish extremes, and its self-imposed limitations send some long-term potential off the field on a stretcher, but the smooth play and slick presentation keep it a worthwhile sport.
  2. Single player's weak, but multiplayer's great. [Apr 2008, p.87]
  3. It's still fun to play, especially when you play online. Overall, though, this Tour will leave you less than thrilled.
  4. NFL Tour is really a game without an identity or purpose. You won’t feel the same visceral excitement from a round of NFL Tour as you do when playing NFL Blitz.
  5. So while this game may flaunt itself as the grand successor to the NFL Street series, it only falls flat on its face before it hits the turf. What you’ve got instead is a hyped arena football game with some poor choices in atmosphere and fun.
  6. This is one of the worst football games I've ever played. If you crave arcade action football, go pick up one of the original NFL Street games.
  7. NFL Tour isn’t just bad. It’s other-worldy bad...It was my hope that in this case less would be more, but unfortunately less is less. We are left with a completely boring and terrible game that I think could be justification for the NFL to revoke the license.

    This is one of the best games I have ever played! Where are all the bad reviews coming from. Play it before you judge it!

    Awesome for what it is....simple, exaggerated unadulterated fun in the name and spirit of NFL Street and Tecmo Bowl.

    Garbage, from its 'roid-raging cover athlete to its inexplicable control scheme to its bizarre inclusion of television (un)funny man Jay Mohr.Garbage, from its 'roid-raging cover athlete to its inexplicable control scheme to its bizarre inclusion of television (un)funny man Jay Mohr. If you complain about Madden's seeming lack of innovation, one needs only look at this game to see the dark side of "innovation". Expand

    This is almost a non-playable game. They have the NFL license, use it! This is Madden's physically and mentally impaired step-brother. This is almost a non-playable game.

    Where'd the street go? In past EA Big offerings, half of the game was playing in cool, bizarre locations (On top of a Skyscraper? Where'd the street go? In past EA Big offerings, half of the game was playing in cool, bizarre locations (On top of a Skyscraper? Abandoned warehouse? Third world country? Awesome.) But now they play in what I can only describe as a hundred-yard open air hamster cage. Player voices are gone, walls are barely used, there's no reason to play defense, create-a-character is no longer worth your time, and the premise is boring. The goal of the game is to sign a document. That's neither extreme or Xtreme or at all motivating. And an announcer that talks about how annoying announcers can be is no less annoying. In the second half of the first game I played, I had already heard all the regrettable garbage this youth-savvy commentator had at his disposal, and immediately turned him off. As if the developers predicted this, there is a separate volume switch for the announcer and ambient noise, so you can hear the crowd and muted geneRock without your host Mr. Sassypants. Expand

    Why bother EA? What a craptastic title and an absolute waste of time.
