NFL Football is an action oriented game based on the popular sport. It is played in real-time so you have to think and act fast. In comparison to other arcade sports simulations, there are relative many coaching options.
It is officially licensed by the NFL and you can choose between about 30 teams. Playing modes are preseason matches, practice and a full season. Because there are only 30 teams a season is not very long.
A faithful translation of a fun arcade sports game (a rare event in itself) by Konami, NFL Football is a fun football game that offers a good balance between coaching and action without taking itself too seriously. As an official licensee of NFL's professional football leagues, you can select from a number of well-known teams (e.g. the Broncos or 49ers) from both the Western, Central, and Eastern Divisions, for a total of over 30 teams. You can play a preseason game, practice, or create a new league and lead your team to the Super Bowl.
Despite the game's origins on the arcades, there are more coaching options than other arcade-oriented games of this ilk (for example, Data East's Monday Night Football), although less than full-fledged simulations of the sport. One of the game's best features is that the game is played in real-time-- you only have 45 seconds, for example, to choose offensive/defensive play tactic. Make no move, and the referee will call "delay of play" and you'll suffer a 5-yard penalty. This real-time emphasis keeps the game brisk, and requires all decisions to be made quickly and decisively. The graphics, as one would expect from Konami, is top-notch, and "icings on the cake" such as substitution, replay feature, and drafting, are handled efficiently and in a user-friendly manner.
With an average "season" lasting only a few games long, and lack of in-depth managerial options, NFL Football is at best a fun arcade-oriented football game that doesn't pretend to be a serious sim-- perhaps owing to its heritage as a coin-op game. It's a great introduction to the sport for beginners, though, or anyone who is bored with the likes of Monday Night Football or longer football sims. Recommended!
