The obvious question is how RealSports Football compares to Intellivision's N.F.L. Football. Overall, the Intellivision game is still superior in graphics and game play. But the Atari game has a few advantages. For one thing, there is a one player version, something sorely missing from the Intellivision game.
Don’t expect to see any real teams or players either, it was a good few years before any official NFL games started appearing on home computers and consoles. A bit more of a game than some of the previous attempts at this sport on an Atari machine, but those expecting any realism need to look elsewhere.

Realsports Football does have a few noteworthy features. You can call an audible at the line of scrimmage -- which is pretty neat. You can also kick field goals, punt, and it's actually possible to block kicks. Still, its overall sluggishness forces this game to take a backseat to the primitive but far more exciting Atari 2600 version.

A one-player mode is included, but the brain-dead computer opponent is worthless. Realsports Football is playable between two evenly matched humans, but serious quality control issues make this one tough to recommend.
