The reviews of this game have not been pretty

I'm not sure they're looking for what most tecmo gamers are looking for, though.

That's exactly what I've thought while reading each review. I think it was the 1Up review that starts out talking about how this game isn't to be mistaken for a simulation game like Madden, then later dings the game for not having features we've become familiar to having in games like Madden. *boggle*

Looking at the scores, I was afraid I'd be disappointed. Reading the text of the reviews, it just solidified that this is exactly what I wanted the game to be. It's Tecmo Bowl....that's what I wanted.

Exactly.

That 1UP review contradicted itself several times. I also didn't understand what he meant by not knowing the down & distance on 4th down plays? I mean, even if that isn't displayed on the screen (which, to be fair, is a little puzzling if true), shouldn't you have an idea of where your team is on the field and how many yards to go for a 1st down?

The comment about not ripping off big plays also is laughable. Everyone that's played Tecmo knows that the defenders always have had ridiculous closing speed and that's why the zig-zag running became so popular in the game.

Re: Tecmo Bowl: Kickoff Media Update (Gamespot, IGN)

The text of the reviews makes it seem like its exactly what I was hoping. Classic Tecmo Super Bowl. I cant wait to see some creative rosters. I was thinking of making franchise divisions(for example, the NFC East would be the 86 Giants, 91 Giants, 00 Giants and 07 Giants).
