In John Elway's Quarterback, it's one player vs. the computer or two human players going head-to-head in single-game American football action. Select your team's home city (there is no NFL or NFLPA license, so there are no real teams or players) and then battle the opposing team for four 15-minute (accelerated real-time) quarters. Graphics are simple: one team has blue uniforms, the other team red ones. The human player gets control of the quarterback on offense and the middle linebacker on defense. The play perspective is top-down and vertical-scrolling. Choose from 9 offensive--mostly passing--plays and 6 defensive plays. Teams have 9 players each.
John Elway's Quarterback is an action-oriented football game. You have your choice of several different plays on offense and defense. On offense you assume the role of quarterback on passing plays and when and if the pass is completed you become the receiver. On running plays the quarterback runs the ball. On the defensive side you act as the middle linebacker unless a pass is intercepted or a kick is received, then the ball carrier becomes the the active player. The graphics are not terrible, but they are not that good either and each team is represented by only nine players. The game is easy to play, but unless you are a joystick manic, not very interesting. I rate it a 2 out of 5.
