As a longtime hardcore PC gamer, I surprisingly found this game to be a lot of fun with a nice simple interface. There are a couple modes to play from, starting with a Skirmish where you can play a quick game, or a season. There is also a multiplayer LAN-ONLY feature.
Starting with a season game, the interface first lets you choose which of the 31 football teams will be in the season (you are allowed to choose about 25 of them), and which team you wish to play as your own. Each division also has a CUSTOM team that you can choose. You can customize this team's name and jersey colors. The team names are limited to the selections they give you, but this is for the purposes of the in-game announcers.
Then comes the player selections, which gives you a very wide variety. There are all sorts of players to choose from, from African Americans, Asians, Latinos, and many more. There is also a player in a wheelchair to choose from! The political correctness of this game is deep, which is a good thing for children. There are also a group of kids based on real NFL players, such as Ricky Williams, Brett Favre, Drew Bledsoe, and Junior Seau. The only gripe I have is the low number of these NFL players, and the fact that they only had current players and none of the recent greats like Dan Marino. This is a small gripe that is countered by the ability to create your own player. Although it is a custom player, you must choose one of the default nicknames -- because the announcers will use the nicknames during the game. Choosing the players is a lot of fun and has some strategy. For instance, one of the players plays better if you have pink uniforms, and another plays better if you also choose her twin sister for your team.

(...) Background
Backyard Football is one of a series of sports games for your personal computer. Other titles include Soccer and Baseball. These games are targeted for younger players, and are therefore, fairly simple to operate. This particular game is advertised for children between the ages of 5 and 10. However, I enjoy playing this game myself, and I am a little bit older than 10.
The game loads automatically when inserted into the CD-ROM drive. The version I purchased did not come with instructions, but I found that I didn't need them. The game is set up in an easy to understand format, that is extremely user friendly. The options allow the user to change the settings on the game, and includes an option to switch from mouse to gamepad. However, I kept the setting on mouse, and found that it was extremely easy to use in that mode. The game begins in the "Clubhouse" and allows a "menu" of options that are depicted with corresponding pictures. To draft a team, you click on the picture of a clipboard. To check out the playing fields, you click on a pair of binoculars. To begin, you click "play football." You can choose between single games, playoff games, and full season.
The gameplay is extremely easy. The point and click ease of your mouse makes the controls very simple. After picking a team, you can begin playing a season against division rivals. Each game rotates between a variety of fields and weather conditions (which can be turned off in the settings). The games consists of four quarters, which last one minute each. You take turns running the offense and defense. The objective, like real football, is to score points, while preventing your opponent from scoring more.

Backyard Football 2002 is a great game. It's much better than the original. I recommend this game for ages 5-10. It has more NFL players and has better graphics. Make sure to find out about Backyard Basketball.

9 of 11 people found the following review helpful A Kid's Review on December 1, 2001
I have always love the backyard series. Especially football these games are for all ages. At least thats what I think. The backyard series gave me insperation to do my own games. Even though I am still 11 years old I like to program games.
I think that its cool that you can pick players from real football to put on your team. All the backyard characters have there own personality and its really cool to talk to them. Another good thing about the series is that the games are really cheap. I think it is worth the money and you will play it for a long time with out getting bord. But if you do buy it I would suggest putting it on the hardest level so it will take longer to beat the game.

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Monica on December 13, 2001
My 6 year old son enjoys the game. What he enjoys may not be what you expect. The game allows kids to choose pro teams and pro football players (as kids.) My son enjoys picking the teams as much as he enjoys playing the game. A neat feature is an ability to mold a player, picking build, sex, hair style/color and playing ability. This is especially fun for kids. Playing the game is rather cumbersome, however. The computer does a lot of the work. You really only play one player. Plays are available but do not make much sense to a young kid. A good game. We've tried some of the others, backyard baseball and soccer (not basketball yet.) Baseball seems to require the most input but it is slow. My son likes soccer the best. Have fun.
