5-0 out of 5 stars Another awesome upgrade to the already great series!
I have seen and played many demos and have read tons of reviews on this product.

I have been a fan of this Junior Sports series since the very first original Backyard Baseball came out. I own 2 of the 3 baseball editions, both of the football versions, my brothers have both of the soccer editions, and we also have Backyard Basketball.

From what I've seen and read this is another great additon to any of your collections of these games. The gameplay is smooth, the graphics are stunning, there are EVEN MORE gamplay options than in BYB 2001, the MLB kids faces are very believable, the players ability to play is slightly exaggerated but hey, that's what makes it so fun.

Being a big fan and player of baseball I follow the majors like nothing else. For that reason I noticed the ratings (Running, Pitching, Fielding, and Hitting) on the players to be slightly off. But if that's the only problem, that's an extremely small sacrifice to make when buying this game.

This game is worth every penny you spend on it. I recommend this game for fans and non-fans of all ages.

The levels of difficulty are set very well for people that play it. I do wish though that they would add an extra "Major League" level of play for us older guys that are looking for some challenging opponents.

I haven't tried online play yet but I'm sure you would find some more challenging people to play against.

This series is getting better with every game and should soon become one of the top sports games on the market. I hope that soon they will expand their games and come out with Backyard Baseball Pennent Race Edition Expansion Pack that will include the new hot rookies in the majors. Who knows? Maybe it's not that far off from now.

In closing I want you to know that this game does not have the new backyard kid design. The new Backyard Hockey has new kids to chose from and absolutely stunning visual effects. I recommend that game also for the Backyard Series fans.

Oh yeah, one more thing, HAVE FUN!!!

Sincerely,

5-0 out of 5 stars Baackyard basketball 2004
I think this game is really good. People say this is too easy but i am 11 and I play on hard mode and I lose sometimes It is deffinetly better then the first backyard basketball because the originial only had two pros and this has ten. This game has good pros and good pro selections but they could have had better people as well like Steve Francis, Baron Davis and Kobe Bryant. Some of the people in there have not very good attributes like Tim Duncan has no outside shot but in real life he is a good outside shooter and Pau Gasol has no outside shot but can make all of the three pointers he shoots. Making a shot is very easy from outside but inside shots are kinda difficult. This game has the same graphics and gameplay as Backyard Hockey which I like the gameplay but the graphics i don't like. I would reccomend this game for 5-12 year olds and if you want the ultimate team I would pick Tracy McGrady, Dirk Nowitzki and Tim Duncan as starters and reserves Yao Ming and Paul Peirce. Other than the bad graphics and the choosing of the pros and pro's attributes this is a very fun and good game.

From the makers of putt-putt,freddi fish,spy fox and pajama sam comes backyard sports.It's fun but you buy it on software,that's where it gets **** instead of *****.Humongous FORCES you to do their setups BEFORe you can play your game.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Baseball Game Ever!
This game is great and a little challanging! The menus are very simple. There are 2 modes that you can play on. A single game mode and season play mode. In single game mode, if you want certain players on your team you have to get them quickly because your opponent can get them before you do. A cool part of single game mode is that you can play tee-ball and watch a demo! On season mode you pick your players first so you have all the players that you want. Each player has four ratings, Batting, Running, Pitching and Fielding. There are three game levels. (Excluding tee-ball mode) A way that makes the game challanging is that there is pluses and minus'. Pluses make them stronger in a rating and minus' make them lower in a rating.If you want to play season mode I reccomend you first play some single games and watch some demos. Also you should start at easy level and work your way up to medium then hard. Heres a tip. Never get Sammy Sosa and Barry Bonds! They get tired to easily and get lots of minus'. A very fun game!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great game and to me fun to play!
This Backyard Soccer 2004 has my favorite players here.Like Brandi Chastain,Tiffity Milbrett,and Cobi Jones.This is a fun game to play,but the hard level still a piece of cake.You can make your color of your team,but the promblem is you have to choose from some choices instead of naming your team.That's my kinda suggestion.I won the game a hundred times already,but I love it and I keep on playing it!I think this is a 4 star rating for one reason why 4 stars,Way too easy! ...

Amazon.com Review

Infogrames has improved upon an already excellent franchise with Backyard Baseball 2003. We hope this software doesn't become a victim of its own success: the Backyard Kids are getting so good, it's only a matter of time before they start demanding astronomical salaries and brand-new stadiums.

The pace, strategy, and statistics involved in baseball make it a sport that translates easily to the computer screen. In Backyard Baseball, players can play pickup games, launch a tournament, have batting practice, or just watch the computer play its own game. Options are initially overwhelming, but add longevity to the game as well. Twelve different game fields each exert their own unique influence over play--balls bounce crazily on the gravel lot, while homers are rare in the fenceless field. Games can be tweaked to add errors or include a visible strike zone; even field chatter can be added or eliminated. A wide selection of hits, pitches, and stance possibilities at the plate keep players strategizing, while the occasional power-up or wild pitch serves as a reminder of baseball's unpredictability.

The creative team outdid themselves with character development in this software. The Backyard Kids are quirky and three-dimensional--the research done on the real players was exemplary as well. For example, did you know Randy Johnson of the Arizona Diamondbacks listens to Rush in his spare time? Go figure.

Backyard Baseball 2003 will keep both young and old baseball fans engaged for a good long time. Consider it a way to fill that long wintry gap between baseball seasons. (Ages 7 and older) --Anne Erickson ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Your Hot Wheels track comes to life in Hot Wheels StuntTrack Driver 2, an action-packed adventure that beats the socks off mostNintendo racing games we've tried. Three-dimensional graphics make this gamerealistic and very cool; slinging mud and dirt while making death-defying jumps,and wicked mid-air rolls and twists in some of earth's hottest all-terrainvehicles gets our vote for one of the most enjoyable activities ever to grace aCD-ROM.

There are six challenging racing courses that kids can master, from dodginggiant turtles at the beach to racing in eerie tunnels in a Jurassic Park-likesetting. It's serious business as kids wrestle the arrow keys, mouse, or gamepad (for the ultimate experience) to beat the clock and earn coin power-upswhile keeping crashes to a minimum. Once kids beat the records in the four mainracing courses, they'll qualify to compete in the ultimate races: two secret,hidden courses loaded with challenges. Once you've unlocked the secret courses,you're just a green light away from world fame on the Hot Wheels Stunt Trackcircuit.

Don't be surprised if, after playing this game, your kids get out their old HotWheels set and start setting up an obstacle course in the living room. Filledwith rip-roaring adventure and fast-paced play, this racing workout is hard tobeat. Kids can also design and build their own virtual courses and take a joyride in more than a dozen Hot Wheels cars and trucks. This CD-ROM is a must forkids of all ages, including adults who've got the need for speed. (Ages 5 andup) --Tina Velgos ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars it's very fun to play!
When I played stunt track driver 2, I was thrilled. When you play it, you can win a variety of cars, and you can try to open the two tracks that you can play if you open them in the championship.

5-0 out of 5 stars Color me happy!
Not only has my 8-year-old son had a ball with this game, my husband has, too! Software was easy enough for my son to install unaided and learn to play without assistance. The game is easy enough to figure out but very fun to play! Highly recommended.

3-0 out of 5 stars A huge disappointment
I've had the original Stunt Track Driver for almost two years. It was a good game because you raced on tracks throughout the house using a huge track layout you could never afford. It was also a fun game and incorporated tricks into the racing action. Unfortuantely Stunt Track Driver 2 doesn't live up to the expectations. The first problem is the graphics, they are more detailed than in the first game but these good graphics come at a big price. The game has a very low frame rate thus making you feel as if there is no sense of speed. Also, when you are in the middle of the race, the game sometimes pauses to load sometimes when in a turn or when you are in mid-air causing you to crash (this happens most notably in the Beach level and sometimes in the Garden level). But the graphics aren't the biggest problem of the game, the major problem is the huge difficulty of the game. I consider my self a hard core game player and have been playing games for over twelve years. It took me three days to beat the original Stunt Track Driver. I figured it would take even less time to beat the sequel. I was very wrong. In the championship mode, you are given 1 minute and 15 seconds to finish the first course. Even if you don't crash once, you won't finish the course within the time limit. You have to do huge combos of tricks at each and every jump to even have a chance of finishing the course within the alloted time. After I fianlly beat that course, the second course is even worse! The Garden track has turns that are hidden meaning you have to memorize the track to know when to turn without crashing. I doubt I'll ever beat this game. If, I, myself can't beat this game then what chance does a five year old have of even beating one course? If you don't have the any Stunt Track Driver game, buy the first one, it is less money and a whole lot of more fun. If you do have the orignal Stunt Track Driver, I reccomend Rush 2049. It has crazy jumps and a stunt mode and is a great game. And at least you know you'll be able to beat the game.

5-0 out of 5 stars Still Hot
Hot Wheels expands their interactive collection with yet another highly entertaining game about the die-cast cars we all grew up with. This game is especially entertaining for children as the race the cars on the computer as they do with their own tracks at home. It is also fun for the adult in bringing back memories and having a quality racing game. ... Read more

Never face another rained-out ball game with this stunning simulator just for kids. Backyard Baseball 2001 lets you manage your own team through sunshine, hail, and hurricane. Whether you want to enjoy a single pickup match or maneuver through an entire season, this game will let you put the players you want on the field of your choice before pitting them against the toughest young players the Major Leagues have to offer.

Play in Backyard Baseball 2001 can be as simple or as difficult as you want it to be. While it is definitely useful to know a few simple statistics about your team members, it is not required. During play, batters may choose between power hits, line drives, bunts, and grounders as they try to hit the fiendishly clever pitches of the opposition. Once a hit is made, players direct runners from base to base. Unlike the earliest baseball simulators, where many decisions were made by the computer, this one puts the user in control of everything, encouraging a good sense of baseball tactics and discouraging rash play. (Stealing bases with a player who is not a good runner, for example, is a quick road to an out!) When pitching, players select from a menu of pitches and then give the pitcher a target within the batter's box for their throw. A hit transfers play to a wider view of the field, so you can direct the ball to whichever base the runner is headed for.

Backyard Baseball 2001 is an upgrade of an earlier game, and players familiar with the original Backyard Baseball will find that it is very similar in design and structure. Your favorite players (and their color commentators) have been carried over wholesale from the first game, complete with the same signature animations as they come up to bat. At first glance, in fact, the program may seem like it hasn't been spruced up much at all. However, the newer game allows players to join Major League ball teams, such as the Toronto Blue Jays, or to create their own team names and uniforms. Players may recruit or play against youthful versions of current sports superstars, such as Mark McGwire and Tony Gwynn. They can even create customized team members to shore up weaknesses in their outfield or custom-tweak an even deadlier pitcher. Another very welcome upgrade is Internet play, which takes the players on the virtual road, pitting them against teams managed by other players online.

The game design in Backyard Baseball 2001 is absolutely stellar. The interface is easy to use and entertaining. The eight ball fields each come with advantages and disadvantages to be puzzled out and exploited. Players themselves come from a pleasingly multicultural palette with a good age, gender, and ability mix. This game also carries over and expands on the original Backyard Baseball's zany sense of humor: a drinking-box gauge shows how much "juice" the pitcher still has, the patter of the commentators is pleasing and surprisingly nonrepetitive, and successful play is rewarded with power-ups for both pitcher and batter. These power-ups are hilarious--a hot pitcher can throw Fireballs, for example, which literally burn as they zoom past the luckless batter. Batters who do manage to hit these special pitches earn the right to try Crazy Bunts, which carom randomly around the field, or the (literally) Screaming Line Drives.

Young baseball enthusiasts will love this program, which combines entertainment and sports education in seamless combination. So put your team together, suit up, and play ball! --Alyx Dellamonica ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars THE BEST BASEBALL GAME OUT THERE, EVEN FOR GROWN-UPS!
If you want baseball on the computer, get this game. Backyard Baseball 2001 has 31 Major League stars as kids (2 from the Reds, 1 from each other team) and 30 other players that you can pick for your team. You can play as any MLB team or pick from a list of custom names. You can even create your own player! But the most surprising part of all is that on Backyard Baseball 2001, Frank Thomas is an amazing pitcher (even better than Randy Johnson and Curt Schilling). In fact, he is so amazing, I pitched a perfect game with him once! The only downsides of this game is that you can only pick 9 players for your team (no subs) and that there are some players that you can't pick for your team that other teams can pick. This game is so good, maybe I'm even gonna start a BYB2K1 webpage! Get this game. It's worth the price.

5-0 out of 5 stars This game is a must
Backyard baseball teams up with Major League Baseball and The Major League Baseball Players Association to bring real-life baseball pros to the neighborhood baseball diamond...as kids! They have players from Mark McGwire to A-Rod,Ivan Rodriguez,Randy Johnson,Larry Walker,Chipper Jones,Barry Bonds, Sammy Sosa,Ken Griffey Jr.,and much,much more! As well as all major league teams. And you can play people on the internet. Theres game modes like season,single game,and batting practice. Plus you not only get the game but you get baseball cards with the game and its a whole lot of fun for anyone.Enjoy!

5-0 out of 5 stars They Should Make More Games Like This!
I've had this game for a long time now, and I've played it more than any other game I own and it's my all-time favorite game. It has tremendous replay value because of its wide selection of modes like single game, season, internet play, practice, and T-Ball mode. I especially like internet mode because it allows you to play with other kids on the net. Parents, don't worry! The internet mode is safe and secured and monitored by the company themselves! I say it is a great game because you can choose from 30 Backyard Baseball player kids and 31 MLB players as kids! That's 61 kids in all to choose for your team! Awesome! But that's not including the custom characters you can make! The controls are EASY! I never experienced anything that was so easy! Just point and click! There are many special pitches and batting types in the game, from spitballs to fireballs and from crazy bunts to aluminum power bats! The special pitches: spitball, fireball, corkscrew, big freeze, zig-zag, slo-mo, and elevator. The special batting types: crazy bunt, aluminum power, under-grounder, and screaming linedrive. Bottom Line: Get this game! It's GREAT! Tip: If you have the game, here's how you can play as Mr. Clanky, the untiring robot with sizzling pitches! Just point your mouse or controller on the robot at the main menu and click on him while holding the shift key!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great game... for the younger kids
this is a very fun game. Great graphics, smooth gameplay, and, as i said, lots of fun! you can choose from a bunch of pros, such as arod, nomar, bonds, giambi, beltran, and sosa. and the backyard kids, like pablo sanchez, dante robinson, jocinda smith, etc.

but, as my title says, it's made for the younger kind. The game gets really easy really fast, and on the hard mode with errors off, i beat the other team 44-1.

I would borrow it from a friend, see how you like it, and go from there, but don't buy it right away.

4-0 out of 5 stars "You'rrrrre Out!"
This game consists of picking players for your team by learning a bit about each player, what they are good at or not good at in baseball. Then you can choose your team's name, colors, and whether to play one game or a season. You tell your pitcher what pitch to throw & where to throw it - or, if you are up to bat, you tell your player when to swing.
It is a fun game, however I strongly recommend it for ages 7 and up. There is some reading necessary - and you must be able to comprehend what defines a "good" baseball player. For the older child - it can be hours of entertainment - and satisfying when you pick a winning team! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Wacky Races, a wacky game
Wacky Races is cool. 4 racers aren't in this game. The ones that are in this game are Peter Perfect, Gruesome Twosome, Sergent, Penelope Pitstop, Red Max, The Slag Brothers, and Dick Dastardly and his dog Muttley. Unfortulently, Dick Dastardly is not one of the racers you can choose from, but is in the races. There is a lot of tracks. There are shortcuts in most tracks. You can race in a singe race, a championship, or you can practice.

I loved this game! It is fun for the whole family...my husband loves it just as much as the kids do!

Amazon.com Review

Now you can give Angelica her comeuppance, help SpongeBob be a winner,or simply see how CatDog manages to drive a racecar. Nicktoons Racingwill thrill cartoon fans and gamers alike as it spices up a racing program withtwists and turns that are pure Nickelodeon.

Only in this program will you find tracks with giant fingers growing out of pinkdirt, power-ups that include the Powdered Toast Man Crouton Launcher (yes, itenables you to launch huge croutons at your opponents), and prizes such as awheel of cheese. Players can get behind the wheel with and race against 12Nickelodeon characters, including Tommy from the Rugrats, Ren and Stimpy, orHelga from Hey Arnold. There's also a mystery rider in a black car; to uncoverhis or her (or its!) identity, racers must win on all 12 tracks.

This Windows-only program has three difficulty levels, a feature that allowsnot-so-great racers to progress towards discovering who or what the mysteryrider is. Five game modes include an option for two players to race head tohead, a relay option, and a couple of practice options that won't damage trophystandings. Players must win first place on the easier tracks before they canaccess the more difficult ones. And if players don't have a game pad orjoystick, they must race using the arrow keys.

Everything from talcum powder to gritty kitty litter comes into play as racersmaneuver their cartoon characters around the bends of these twisted tracks. Ourone complaint is that we only get to see the backs of our favorite Nickcharacters as they speed through their surreal world. (Ages 6 and up) --AnneErickson ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars I can't stop playing it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This game is soooooooooooooooooooo much fun!!!!!!!!! I LOVE it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's cool how they have a mystery rider in it. I figured out who it is!!!!! I think everyone should buy this game.

4-0 out of 5 stars Wacky, Fun, entertaining, but hard to get working
I tried 3 different computers and it finally worked.
The first 2 computers had Windows 98 and older video cards.

The machine it works on has an NVidea GForce2 and Windows XP.
The problem is with the either not having very recent video
drivers or not having a compatable video card. The set up
notes give no help.

I don't see an option to use a steering wheel, but it may
work. We used the keyboard.

You can race alone, with 5 other characters or against
another person sitting at the same computer. In 2 player
mode you can race against 4 other characters.

After picking a character, you race around one of 12 different
tracks fashioned after one of the Nicktoon shows, picking up surprises and jumping on fast launch pads.

The surprises let you launch an attack or defense. None
are violent. One lets you drop green goo on the ground
so when someone else passes over it, they get stuck.

The driving is easy so you can concentrate on the fun part of the game, that is avoiding surprises and nailing others with your surprises.

1-0 out of 5 stars no back up support
we bought this 6 months ago and it still doesn't work. there is an 800 number on the package that is out of date. when you finally get to the correct support you don't actually get a person. you are only prompted to do things, to most non computer geeks like myself this program is useless. don't bother buying it. your kids will say "how come you can't get it going". You'll put it away and try again later. Again with no success. Skip this one.

5-0 out of 5 stars Nicktoons Racing
"Go Spongebob! Go Spongebob!" Spongebob races down the track and passes Angelica while collecting some power-boosts. Finally, he races past the finish line and wins the crusty crab award. You're computer screen flashes out the words SPONGEBOB 1ST PLACE 2 MINUTES 6 SECONDS. The game Nicktoons Racing allows you to race as your favorite character from Nickelodian on fun-filled tracks. The 3-D gaphics are fabulous and it includes a multi-player mode. The music is great and the voices sound like the ones on the different shows. If you like Nickelodian, this is the game for you.

THIS GAME WOULD BE FUN FOR EVERY KID,NO MATTER HOW OLD THEY ARE.ALL MY OLDER BROTHERS AND SISTERS BEG ME TO LET THEM PLAY THE GAME.THIS GAME WOULD BE FUN FOR PARENTS ALSO.MY PARENTS ALWAYS TRY TO WIN ME,BUT THEY NEVER CAN.THIS GAME IS FUN ,AND EASY FOR KIDS. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Quite worthwhile
I thought this entire pack was quite fun and very cheap compared to buying everything sepratley. (Sorry im not a good speller.) Sim life has so many variables, Theme park you can have a very funny time, Theme hospital is almost addicting,and the rest are fun as every now and then games. Plus buing all else is over 30$. Thanx for listinging to me ramble.

4-0 out of 5 stars Yes! Theme Hospital and some other cool and rare games!
This pack is neat. Some of the games such as Sim Earth and Sim Life take time to master. These games don't have great graphics but are fun. Theme Hospital is my favorite. It is hard to find unless you buy it in this pack or the other top pack. Theme Park is in this pack but it is hard to run since it is dos. All of the sim games are cool in here. There is also a marble game, a poker game and a pinball game. This pack is worth the money. Even if you just buy it for a few of the games.

4-0 out of 5 stars Can't play some of these on Windows XP
I bought this pack mainly for Theme Hospital - which I have now played to death and figure I got my money's worth with just that one game.

SimCity 2K - an old classic. I haven't loaded this on my new machine because SC3K is so much superior. But if you have no Sim City games, you'll get a kick out of SC2K.

SimAnt - another one I had previously and enjoyed. Sort of a short game to play, but I thought it was fun.

SimLife - I was so excited about this one when it was new, but I couldn't ever seem to figure out how to play it properly. I tried again recently, and it's still greek to me.

SimEarth - ditto what I said for Sim Life. They look very similar to me, actually.

Theme Park - I didn't load this, I already have SimTheme Park which I think is nearly the same. Which isn't nearly as good as Hasbro's Roller Coaster Tycoon.

SimSafari - a new one to me, I've fiddled with it a little when I had time and it looks pretty promising.

Marble Drop - this one I couldn't load on my XP machine.

Extreme Pinball and Power Poker - I haven't even bothered to try loading these two...I have a bazillion pinball and card games already so I just tossed these aside.

5-0 out of 5 stars Electronic Arts Top Ten Family Fun Pack
The Electronic Arts Top Ten Family Fun Pack has great "Sim" games plus more. The games in this pack are GREAT.

4-0 out of 5 stars Getting Started
The Top Ten Family Fun Pack is rather difficult when it comes to getting started. After installing some of the games, you may find it hard to learn how to play. Games like Theme Hospital and Sim Copter are easy to learn because of the tutorials that you can run. Other games like Sim Earth and Sim Life are more difficult because no tutorial is supplied and it can take quite a long time to search through the help file and find that certain section you are looking for. One note to consumers is that Theme Park will not work unless your computer's DOS version can recognize a mouse. Most of the newer computers are capable of playing Theme Park. Any computer manufactured before 1998 may not be capable of running Theme Park. Check with your computer manufacturer for more information and to find out if you are capable of running Theme Park. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Another awesome upgrade to the already great series!
I have seen and played many demos and have read tons of reviews on this product.

I have been a fan of this Junior Sports series since the very first original Backyard Baseball came out. I own 2 of the 3 baseball editions, both of the football versions, my brothers have both of the soccer editions, and we also have Backyard Basketball.

From what I've seen and read this is another great additon to any of your collections of these games. The gameplay is smooth, the graphics are stunning, there are EVEN MORE gamplay options than in BYB 2001, the MLB kids faces are very believable, the players ability to play is slightly exaggerated but hey, that's what makes it so fun.

Being a big fan and player of baseball I follow the majors like nothing else. For that reason I noticed the ratings (Running, Pitching, Fielding, and Hitting) on the players to be slightly off. But if that's the only problem, that's an extremely small sacrifice to make when buying this game.

This game is worth every penny you spend on it. I recommend this game for fans and non-fans of all ages.

The levels of difficulty are set very well for people that play it. I do wish though that they would add an extra "Major League" level of play for us older guys that are looking for some challenging opponents.

I haven't tried online play yet but I'm sure you would find some more challenging people to play against.

This series is getting better with every game and should soon become one of the top sports games on the market. I hope that soon they will expand their games and come out with Backyard Baseball Pennent Race Edition Expansion Pack that will include the new hot rookies in the majors. Who knows? Maybe it's not that far off from now.

In closing I want you to know that this game does not have the new backyard kid design. The new Backyard Hockey has new kids to chose from and absolutely stunning visual effects. I recommend that game also for the Backyard Series fans.

Oh yeah, one more thing, HAVE FUN!!!

Sincerely,
Ian Badeer
A True Backyard Series Fan

5-0 out of 5 stars Baackyard basketball 2004
I think this game is really good. People say this is too easy but i am 11 and I play on hard mode and I lose sometimes It is deffinetly better then the first backyard basketball because the originial only had two pros and this has ten. This game has good pros and good pro selections but they could have had better people as well like Steve Francis, Baron Davis and Kobe Bryant. Some of the people in there have not very good attributes like Tim Duncan has no outside shot but in real life he is a good outside shooter and Pau Gasol has no outside shot but can make all of the three pointers he shoots. Making a shot is very easy from outside but inside shots are kinda difficult. This game has the same graphics and gameplay as Backyard Hockey which I like the gameplay but the graphics i don't like. I would reccomend this game for 5-12 year olds and if you want the ultimate team I would pick Tracy McGrady, Dirk Nowitzki and Tim Duncan as starters and reserves Yao Ming and Paul Peirce. Other than the bad graphics and the choosing of the pros and pro's attributes this is a very fun and good game.

forced to do setups
From the makers of putt-putt,freddi fish,spy fox and pajama sam comes backyard sports.It's fun but you buy it on software,that's where it gets **** instead of *****.Humongous FORCES you to do their setups BEFORe you can play your game.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Baseball Game Ever!
This game is great and a little challanging! The menus are very simple. There are 2 modes that you can play on. A single game mode and season play mode. In single game mode, if you want certain players on your team you have to get them quickly because your opponent can get them before you do. A cool part of single game mode is that you can play tee-ball and watch a demo! On season mode you pick your players first so you have all the players that you want. Each player has four ratings, Batting, Running, Pitching and Fielding. There are three game levels. (Excluding tee-ball mode) A way that makes the game challanging is that there is pluses and minus'. Pluses make them stronger in a rating and minus' make them lower in a rating.If you want to play season mode I reccomend you first play some single games and watch some demos. Also you should start at easy level and work your way up to medium then hard. Heres a tip. Never get Sammy Sosa and Barry Bonds! They get tired to easily and get lots of minus'. A very fun game!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great game and to me fun to play!
This Backyard Soccer 2004 has my favorite players here.Like Brandi Chastain,Tiffity Milbrett,and Cobi Jones.This is a fun game to play,but the hard level still a piece of cake.You can make your color of your team,but the promblem is you have to choose from some choices instead of naming your team.That's my kinda suggestion.I won the game a hundred times already,but I love it and I keep on playing it!I think this is a 4 star rating for one reason why 4 stars,Way too easy! ...

Where were games like Backyard Football 2002 when we were kids?This latest addition to the award-winning series may have colorful cartoongraphics, a bumping soundtrack, and lots of squeaky voices, but underneath is afootball game so fun and detailed that it can actually teach children about thesport.

You can click a single button to immediately get a random pickup game going, butthe real fun is in the single game and season modes. In the single game, you getto choose a field to play on, set the weather conditions, and decide what rulesyou want to use. Then you pick your team from a bench full of imaginary and realworld players, each rated in a variety of statistics like passing, catching, andkicking. The season mode offers even more depth, letting you draft a team andlead them all the way to the championships, tracking their stats, trophies, andstandings along the way.

The game mechanics are simple enough for kids to learn but offer a surprisingamount of depth for those who practice. For passes, just click the spot whereyou want the ball to end up. To move while running, click the spot you want theplayer to turn towards. To switch players, click the player you want to control.Once the basics are mastered you can learn some advanced tricks, like tappingthe mouse button to throw a pass with a high arc versus holding the button downto throw a frozen rope. You can lead your receivers, perform fake punts, putspecific players in specific positions for every play, and do just abouteverything else the big-boy simulations do, and a narrated tutorial lets youpractice before taking your skills onto the field.

5-0 out of 5 stars Backyard Football
I'd give this game 5/5 stars because it's not hard, but it's not so easy a baby could win. It's cool because it has kid versions of NFL players. You click were you want to go and click were you want to pass. You choose from plays and if you are doing good they might give you a power up. Some power ups are the sonic boom and the leap frog. Inthe sonic boom, all of the components fall to the ground for around 5 seconds. The leap frog is were you jump 5-7 yards. This game is good because it is a fun and thrilling game. I highly recomend it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very good, with a few acceptions
I think Backyard Football 2002 is great. The grafics are good, it is somewhat realistic and it is funny. The one problem is the characters that they put in the game. First, there aren't enough players in the game. I think it should be like Backyard Baseball 2003 where there is at least one player from each team. Another thing is there are too many pro quarterbacks and not enough pro defensive players and wide receivers. What about Charles Woodson, Jerry Rice, Keyshawn Johnson, Terrell Owens maybe (only if your desprate) Randy Moss, Derrick Brooks, Warren Sapp or Ray Lewis? My last complaint is why would you put Cade McNown? I mean, he had one lucky game and then he sucked the rest of his career. I would buy this game without question, if you don't mind a pro player shortage.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is the best sport game ever!!!
This game rocks because even they are kids they can still play like real profecional players. This game has cool animations and worth it if you'd buy it. I think this game is better than any other football games. I wish that they should create another cool version for backyard football 2002.

5-0 out of 5 stars I love it!
I got Backyard Football right before Christmas of 2002. Over Chritmas break I played it constantly.My parents couldn't pull me away. I even ate meals while I played it! It's a really fun game. I also have Backyard Basketball witch I would give four and a half stars.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fun, but I can't figure out why
It's true. This is the best football game I've ever played. It beats Madden and NFL 2K and Gameday and such. It's a bunch of kids playing football. Duh. It's so good, it's indescribable. But I'll try.
Season mode is great. Pick your seven kids, and go though a season. Simple as that. That's another great thing: This game is so simple, a 3 year old who can't even remember his name could do this easily. I figured it out in a day, and, by the end of the first week after I bought it, my Seahawks had won the Super Colossal Cereal Bowl over the Ornery Armadillos, 105-0. Seriously. Okay, it gets really easy after a while, but so what? ... Read more
