‘You’re the quarterback in this amazingly real football game!
Enjoy realistic grid iron action as you move your team up and down the field to victory! Run, pass, kick, punt you call the plays in this true to life football game. Play against the computer, or against a friend, for hours of real football action. The sights, the sounds, and the plays are so real, you’ll think you’re right on the fifty yard line! ‘
 
HOW DOES THE GAME LIVE UP TO IT’S EXPLANATION/BOX ART? (2/10)
 
The cover of 10 yard fight is an actual screen shot of the game. So it gets a point for showing you exactly what you will be playing.
The back explanation is a huge lie. This game is no where near a real football game. I mean at the kick off your receiving team is standing in a rectangle in which your receiver (in the middle of the rectangle) catches the ball and you head upwards towards that 6 points.
 
 
 
 
HOW IS THE GAME PLAY? (1/10)
 
The game play is just awful. Sometimes when you hike the ball to early you are instantly downed. So if you don’t wait for your half back or other player to run passed your quarterback before hiking the ball you are screwed. Now, that doesn’t sound too bad other than it takes about twenty seconds for him to get passed you. And sometimes you just randomly kick the ball for a field goal or punt for no apparent reason.
The character models are all the same guy just colored differently which isn’t anything new on nintendo and it doesn’t lose points for it, but the hilarious thing is all of their tackle sprite action looks like a screwed up version of frogger jumping across to his goal.
 
 
 
HOW DOES THE GAME LIVE UP TO IT’S GENRE? (1/10)
 
This is easily the worst football game I have ever played in my life. And, the fact that it says that I will feel like i’m on the fifty yard line is just bull crap. This game feels like i’m playing a strange version of football that doesn’t know what it is.
 
 
 
THE ‘GAME OVER’ ALL? (13%)
 
The only reason to play this game would be if you got it for less than a dollar for a good laugh. There are so many other football games on the nintendo that are better. Well, all of them are better. Just stick with the Tecmo Bowl or Super Tecmo bowl.
