Title: 10 Yard Fight

Synopsis: Okay, I'll admit that I'm no football fan, but I don't think football is supposed to be like this.

Nintendo created this 'game' in 1985. If I'm correct this is the first football game for the NES. I guess one of the employees at Nintendo was a football fanatic and wanted to have a football game. So he kept pestering his fellow employees to talk to the big cheese and convince him to make a football game. My guess is that he finally got through to the guy while he was smoking a seven-foot bong.

Game Play:3
Somebody must've been really high to think you could play a terrible game like this. The CPU controlled team is very agile, but you're team is more slower than a 5 second old kitten. You will find yourself struggling to move left or right to avoid being tackled. I've only made it all the way to the other side 1 time. And that took a lot of effort. Itís like the CPU: Amazingly sluggish controlling.

Graphics:4
Poor. Very Poor. The ground where your playing at looks okay, but the players look like blue & red blobs. I don't think I have an eye problem either. A monkey on speed could create better graphics.

Music:?
Their really is no music in this game. The only sound effect I've heard is the cheering crowd. The cheers actually sound kinda lifelike.

Originality:9
This may have been a awful start for football games, but it was a start. Because it has spawned tons of really great football games for the PSX, Nintendo 64, and Dreamcast. And many more to come no doubt.

Overall:5
I suggest at least trying this game. If you dislike it then just keep it in your NES library. Some people may get lucky & beat the whole game

Best Cheats: Couldn't find any. I don't think games from 1985 had cheats or codes. Either that or the idiot who made this game was too stupid to make cheats.
