By M. Allen Greenbaum HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on May 14, 2000
Boys and girls (and their parents--believe me!) will love this fun, exciting football game from Humongous Entertainment. It features characters familiar from other "Jr. Sports League" series: Easy-going Keisha, lightening-fast Pete, and others of different ages, races, sizes, and abilities.
The action is fast and the selection of plays is great fun (you can also create your own plays!). Passing plays are the most difficult; you might want to encourage your child to focus on running, kicking, and defense, and help him or her with passing. (Our 5-year old eventually got the hang of the whole game). You can set 3 difficulty levels, play a league series culminating in a the "Super-Colossal Cereal Bowl" or play single "pick-up" games, play in preset or random weather conditions, and even make up your own player with different skills (it's fun to name this player after yourself)!
A few complaints: Once again, Pete Wheeler is the athletic, but intellectually challenged kid. I found some of his dialogue offensive--but it offers a good chance to talk with your kids about stereotypes. The compilation of player stats is good, but not as complete as the Baseball game offered by Humongous. A creative and fun addition is the inclusion of several NFL players (including Steve Young, Jerry Rice, Randall Cunningham, Barry Sanders, Brett Favre, and John Elway) as kids playing along with the Jr. Sports League cast. Now, not that I ever play this game, but I recommend Keisha on defense, Pete at running back, Barry Sanders at tight end, Annie as kicker.....
(I also recommend highly the Backyard Baseball Game by Humongous.)

This series rules! I like this one the best 'cause it has the most features and I love football. Also,you can choose from pro players and even make your own custom player! You can even change your playbook and create new plays! The only problem is they only have these features in Backyard Football. This game should have 10 stars!

Backyard Football is a very cool game. You can play a real NFL team or a made-up team. You get to play with real NFL players and/or with made-up characters. You can design your own plays or play with the defaults. It is one of the best games I have ever played.

this is a great game. i spent the whole night playing playing it, but i did not beat it. so when i got up in the morning i played the game and beat it with my team, the "silly rams". you can create your own team and make a draft.
bottom line- great game, buy it

This is the best game of my childhood. Humongous you guys need to make a new one and I'm not talking about the bastardization of the latest BackYard series. Boy that makes me cringe so hard.

Also, look at all these 1999 and 2000 reviews, who knew Amazon was around them am i right?

A Kid's Review on August 2, 2006
I own other backyard games like backyard basketball, backyard soccer, and backyard baseball but this one is the best!The cool things are you can make, and name your own plays, you can name, and make your own players also when the kids score a touchdown they do dances.Some of them are very funny!Another good thing is that the players have great skills, you can play with two people, and you can play with pro players.Bad things- no bad things!Anyone who likes baseball, basketball, soccer or any kind of sport would really, really, really, really like this game.Definitley a game I would recommend!
