NFL Tour is the dream football game for somebody who can't handle the complicated controls of a Madden game. Everything in the game is based off of a simplified control system. For example, in the passing game, the B button switches the targeted receiver, and the A button passes it. The only disadvantage of the simplified control system is that when you get the feel of it, it becomes way too easy.
In NFL Tour the objective is to beat the other 31 teams. That's the whole deal. Each game is scored in a different way. Some games are won based on who is winning when time runs out and some are won when a team reaches a certain point total. Some games are scored by defense.
Very well done.
The only flaw in the game. To start, the announcer needs to have more lines. After you hear Trey Wingo use the same lines twenty times in a single game you'll turn the sound off and never turn it back on.
The difficulty of the game is way too easy and the game is very short. I rented the game and beat every team within three days, probably two hours spent on the game per day.
Overall Score (8.5/10)
A very worthwhile game to rent, but do not waste money on it.
