yes it is very basic. although its archaic design is memorable(reliving childhood tecmo bowl) the game could have benefitted from a modernization. come on guys we are in the '00 going on '10 you can do much better than copy and pasting an old NES port to the DS. the technology is better so step it up. do it again!!! only better!!!
The teams are college and controls are intuitive and it is a fun port of the NES title. However it is too basic and it would be nice to have NFL and ability to have timeouts and maybe reviews; worth a rent but at most a short term buy.
