Backyard Football '09 Hands-on Preview (IGN)

IGN has posted their hands-on preview of Backyard Football '09.

"Like previous Backyard games, there are a number of different fantastical fields to play on, including castles, fancy resorts and construction sites. Also present is a full set of player stats, along with other extras like in-game power-ups and special "Backyard exclusive" teams. For my game, Saling selected the 49ers and pitted them against the Melon Heads (a team created by Humongous). Then the Wii Remote and Nunchuck fell into my hands and the carnage began.

Clearly I was not in the zone because I was trounced by the competition. Regardless, controls for the Wii version are very straight-forward. During offensive plays, you can bring up small queues for which D-pad input to hold down, and then you just flick the Wii Remote to throw. Movement feels totally fine, though I did have a few issues properly selecting a receiver during a passing play. This could have been an isolated incident however and, as I mentioned just above, I was not in the zone."
