NFL (video game)
|Series||National Football League|
|Genre(s)||Traditional football simulation|
Multiplayer (up to two players)
This game was the first since NFL Football - released in 1979 for the Intellivision - to get an official National Football League license. Intending to loosely represent the 1988-89 season of the National Football League, the game uses the teams and play formations of that particular era while avoiding usage of the players' names, due to a lack of an NFLPA license, which was given to Tecmo's Tecmo Bowl.
The player could play one of four options, either Interconference, AFC and NFC game or the Super Bowl (specifically Super Bowl XXIII). Along with the option to choose a package to play during the game, players can directly control the entire team at once. This game was one of the first NFL video games on a gaming system. The game employs a side-scrolling system for the actual gameplay and allows players to assign handicaps to a human opponent that is not equally skilled as they are.
