  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.

    I know I want more moves and I pretty much have given up playing against the computer, but when a friend comes over, this is one of the first games we throw in to play. There's just something about Tony Romo running up the side of a wall and leaping into the end zone for the game-winning score while Rodney Harrison whiffs himself into a face full of plexiglass that I can't get enough of, even if it's the only time the Patriots lose all year.
  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.

    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
