    The Worst Sports Game Ever

    This is without a doubt the most difficult, ill-conceived sports game ever produced. If Nintendo was to be judged for only one game and this was it, I can only think the death penalty would be considered. In 10-Yard ... Read Full Review

    10 Yard Fight manages to suck you in, no matter how hard you fight.

    "10 Yard Fight" was the first remotely realistic American football game to ever be developed and released. It was first released in 1983 as an arcade game, but soon got ported over to the NES. The NES version was develop... Read Full Review

    This game would not be your best choice for football playing.

    Old Old School fun.

    One of the first football games I ever played and I must say that it was alot of fun. Although graphics wise it is nowhere close to being that great, the game itself had its positive attributes. Was originally an arcade ... Read Full Review

    A long-time fan of Irem's "10-Yard Fight" from the arcade, I was eager to play it on the NES. I was simultaneously impressed and disappointed with the results. In the arcade, "10-Yard Fight" pitted the player against... Read Full Review
