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.)
bottom line- great game, buy it
Also, look at all these 1999 and 2000 reviews, who knew Amazon was around them am i right?

I like Backyard Football because it's an easy game to master. Yet, it is not so easy that it's not any fun. Read more
Backyard football, this one at least, is probably the best football game created for PC's. In this game you can create your team as if it were a draft, and play thru a whole... Read morePublished on June 17, 2008 by Jack the Lamb(ert)
