Here is your chance to play football without getting hurt. Unnecessary Roughness puts you in command of your chosen team in an effort to win the football season. With Al Michaels giving the play-by-play and a 3-D rotating camera that gets you out on the field, this game is a classic.


Unnecessary Roughness DOS I guess I got a little anxious.
Unnecessary Roughness DOS The coin toss. It's amazing how the snow hasn't covered the team logo at all.
Unnecessary Roughness DOS LA receives it.
Unnecessary Roughness DOS Ooh! Blitzed the QB!
