Ah, Tecmo Bowl. We have some very fond memories of you, namely getting together with the cousins and other relatives on holidays and racing upstairs to the NES so we could throw the virtual pigskin around. Those were good times.
And when Tecmo announced that the series was making a comeback, we found ourselves to be cautiously optimistic. Sure, we had hoped the traditional approach would return, but when things are revisited so many years later, there's a danger of losing what originally made the source material great. Thankfully, that isn't the case here, and we feel that Tecmo Bowl: Kickoff is not only a must-have, but also could very well be a cheap ticket back to the wonderful days of our childhood.

I don't know what's wrong, but this post is making both of my browsers crash and close unexpectedly. I finally managed to "recover" my tabs and mashed the stop button before that embedded youtube clip loaded. Please fix. thanks.

wow, this game looks sweet. Sure you could run an emulator and play the original Tecmo Bowl, but this will have updated players and teams. The graphics also look sweet.
Brings back memories.
