Play Time (Jan, 1992)
Teilweise leidet die Übersicht unter dem kleinen Display, doch die Animation nach einem Touchdown ist mit das Beste, was ich bisher in Sachen Präsentation auf dem Game Boy gesehen habe. Tolle Musik und realistische Soundeffekte runden das Vergnügen ab. Tecmo Bowl ist gut spielbar und macht auch in Sachen Motivation nicht so schnell schlapp. Wer das Regelwerk von American Football nicht kennt, sollte es vielleicht lernen, sonst versäumt er ein tolles Sportspiel.
Tecmo Bowl is fun to play and should be enjoyed by anyone who likes football. Despite the lack of plays per team you can still have a good deal of fun for a while.
Joystick (French) (Dec, 1991)
Doté d'un graphisme quelque peu sommaire, mais qui a l'avantage de permettre une action assez rapide, Tecmo Bowl est une bonne simulation qui pourrait avec des améliorations techniques bien se situer si elle était réalisée sur des machines un peu plus performantes.
The new version has all the smooth, fast action of NES TB, with the same teams and rosters. Each team has it's own talents and specialities, based on the abilities of the players. There are three modes: One player, Two Player (using a Game Link) and Coach mode, which allows you to choose your own formations. Ready to try your hand? It's kickoff time!
For some reason, football on the Gameboy just doesn't sound right. This cart is good, but nowhere near the NES version. The fact that you can use all of your old codes from the NES version really adds to this cart, but despite some nice play, the remains too slow for me.
This would be fab if it wern't for the haphazard defensive plays and too-tough cornerbacks.
