Since I first found out about Retro Bowl, Iíve been anxiously awaiting the opportunity to play...

Love this game and been playing it non-stop since it came out..

But, I ultimately want a couple tweaks eventually, even if they involve IAP, especially if it’s going to be long term enjoyable.

1. I do want to play defense eventually, even if it’s simplistic. It’s not fun to have the game come down to “needing a stop” and you have nothing to do with it and you just “lose” while watching the game tell you what happened. That sucks and happens a lot.

2. Play selection. I don’t need it for every down, but on 4th downs I’d like to have 3 plays to choose from (or something similar). It’s too critical. To their credit, you can see what the 4th down play will be before choosing to run a play or kick (punt or FG), but it’d be even better to have 2 or 3 options for the play.

3. I’d like to be able to kick a FG anytime I want. Sometimes you’d like to kick a FG on a 1st or 2nd down when in range to get the points and go kickoff and hopefully get the ball back while preserving clock (when coming back from 2 scores down).

4. I’d like optional controller support. The Dev tells me that’s possibly likely since they are making a PC port anyhow.

5. It’d be nice if you could call timeouts. Maybe you want to stop the clock or maybe you changed your mind on a FG/Punt/4th down going for it decision...who knows..

6. I’ve played a few seasons now and I do wish the AI had a bit more learning and variety. Far too often I can sit there and just throw endlessly to a RB out of the backfield who’s always wide open, for an entire game, and the defense never adjusts.

It’s a phenomenal base game that all should purchase and enjoy (you will love it) - I really hope they keep adding to it.

This just makes me wish we had a current gen tecmo game. Think of how great it could be with franchise mode, online play, etc*
