"Backbreaker Football looks amazing and the animations are topnotch. But you'd expect this of NaturalMotion - which provided the animation engine for GTA IV."

5.0 out of 5 stars Game's great, your phone might be a problem though April 5, 2011
Verified Purchase
It's not so much a football game as it is a set football based mini-games. The graphics are very crisp and the controls are smooth. My only gripes are the giant intro advertisement for the console version of the game, and as a non-sports guy, I'm not sure how long this will hold my interest, but your mileage may vary. Also, apparently this doesn't run properly on some phones and tablets, so do some research before you hit "buy". Works great on Galaxy S though.

5.0 out of 5 stars wow!!!!! April 5, 2011
By Neal
I'm in love with this game!!!! So graphics are perfect and its plays really smooth. I didn't experience any lag what so ever. I would recommend this game. Download it now, you won't be disappointed. Don't listen to all the other comments, they must have crappy low-end phones. I have a Galaxy S phone and a Nexus One it works for me.

Always enjoyed this one. Fun and simple concept, which gets challenging as you progress through the levels. Great graphics and sound. Used on both Droid and Droid X without issue.

4.0 out of 5 stars good time waster April 5, 2011
By A Customer
all in all I think it's a good time waster. it's not football per se but you'll just have to try it to find out. using on a droid x. I also don't understand why an app has to have a low rating just cause it doesn't work on your phone. it happens. get over it.

This version NOT for Tegra 2
I hope more people read that before they give the app a 1-star rating.
