10-Yard Fight is yet another sports game in Nintendo’s mini-series of NES games. Most of them are bad except Ice Hockey.
This one plays pretty decent, and I prefer the top down view verses the horizontal view of something like Tecmo Bowl. Except it’s more like a Tiger handheld sort of game than a legitimate football title. For some reason you only play offense, if your pass is intercepted you go 20 yards back, and once you score it starts over again.
They had some good ideas, but they kinda flopped in the long-term. It’s aged quite a bit, but at least we can look back and say “well at least Madden took some lessons from it” or something.
Score: 4 out of 10
