    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

    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! ...

    3-0 out of 5 stars Solid Game with only a few flaws
    Ford Racing 2 helps fill a hole in mac gaming, namely the lack of racing games. Great graphics, fairly good sound. It's main weakness is playability hampered by extremely sensitive keyboard controls that make you crash your car from side to side, like you have a high blood alcohol level. Unfortunately, the in game controls are not helpful, but you can adjust the keyboard response rate in System X's System Preferences. Ideally a wheel should be used with this game, though at this point I can't justify the expense and with some practice and frustration you can control the cars with a keyboard.Also,the physics model is not very realistic in that no damage shows up, no matter how much you run in to walls or cars. Ferral's racing games get better and better, and I would recommend this game to someone that enjoys racing games and has a fair amount of patience. ... Read more

    Amazon.com Review

    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

    2-0 out of 5 stars Arcade port for Mac
    Driving simulations, thanks to today's fast personal computers are very realistic...but this isn't one of them. Total Immersion Racing (TIR) is a Mac/PC version of an arcade game and it looks like it and drives like it. Think PlayStation and you have the right idea. Try the free download demo version before you buy.

    For a much more realistic driving experience (a $55-$100 USB steering wheel and pedals set really is a necessity) try $20 'NASCAR Racing Season 2003' (NASCAR) or $30 'F1 Championship Season 2000' (F1CS2K). Don't let the dates make you think these simulations are old-they refer to the tracks, cars and drivers from that year.

    NASCAR cars are big, heavy and powerful. The sim does an amazing job of modeling the feel of drifting and sliding; you really can steer with throttle and weight shift. Instant replays are fun to watch, and the program even includes a limited editor so you can create your own movie with highlights using several different camera angles. The sound of the big V8s really adds to the fun, and for you hot-rodders out there you can tweak just about everything about the cars to try to scrape another .1 second off your lap time. Online racing against drivers on your LAN or around the world on the Web is also possible too. A downloadable demo is available free from various sites, but they're huge at 100+ gigabytes, so unless you have DSL or cable modem just let Amazon sell you one. You'll be glad you did.

    F1CS2K cars are small, light, very nimble and very fast. With a force feedback steering wheel you can feel the road better than with NASCAR, indeed you can even feel the rumble strips at the apex of a turn and the wheel gets loose when you're briefly airborne over a rise. To drive fast you MUST practice, and the drivers' school, which is very demanding, really helps improve your skill. F1CS2K is, in my opinion more realistic than NASCAR, but it's also the hardest to drive well and thus-for my money-the more enjoyable. But I still drive NASCAR periodically, just because the big cars are fun in their own macho noisy way. Once you're turning respectable laps on a Grand Prix track (my favorite is Spa in the mountains) try it again in the rain! Very humbling even with the "grip" set-up. LAN and on-line racing also available with dozens of pre-established cars and set ups and thousands of possible combinations, as with NASCAR, if you want to tweak things yourself. You can save a loop of the last 20-120 minutes of driving at each track for instant replays depending on how much disk space you have (min. 500Mb but none required to drive). Free download demo also available on the Web.

    My Logitech Momo Racing USB steering wheel and pedals set work very well with TIR, NASCAR, and F1CS2K. If you have an older, slower computer go for the NASCAR sim which has more 'low end' graphics options. But with any G4 or G5 Mac both NASCAR and F1CS2K will bring you amazing graphics, realistic handling, lots of fun and, if you enjoy them as much as I do, hours of lost sleep.

    BTW, if you ever thought a couple of beers doesn't effect your driving, have a couple and watch what happens to your lap times. Very sobering.

    5-0 out of 5 stars This game is Really good
    I just recieved this game about 2 weeks ago and it is so cool. The AI is just superb its really advanced. Ive been hooked on it and i must say its not for everyone its for someone who 1. loves race cars 2. loves racing games 3. someone who wants to race cars such as the Audi TT, Mclaren F1, And lemans like prototyope Bentley its really good. the cars are cool. The tracks are real world tracks. Some of its a bot wierd but its really goos u have gotta get it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best race game for the Mac
    Buy this game, this is what we in the Mac community have been waiting for.

    The physics model is realistic, the cars each have their own handling characteristics and the tracks require a certain amount of finess attainable with a little practice. The graphics are somewhere between Gran Tourismo 2 and 3. The sound is different for each car and the realism is exciting.

    I always found the Formula 1 race from Feral to be a little too difficult to drive with out most driving assistants turned on. TIR on the other hand is more forgiving when driver errors knock you off the track. You can still recover and get back in the race with out having the computer assist you in braking, turning, etc.

    I hope Feral continues to support this game with new tracks and cars. My G5 does sometimes start to drop frames when the action is fast but that's on a 19" monitor with 256Mb RAM. Hopefully upgrading the RAM will help.

    This is the new standard in Mac racing.

    I'm not a huge gamer or a NASCAR fan but this game is great. I use Mac OS 10.2.3 and have a Logitech Momo Force Steering Wheel with force feedback.

    The combination of OS, game and steering wheel is what I think make this a fun and exciting game. The force feedback is something that I was skeptical of at first but it is a blast.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Disapointed an avid fan!
    Being an avid fan of 4x4 Evolution (the original), I figured I would love 4x4 EVO 2. I was quite a master at the first one, finally able to beat most of the races. So I jumped into 4x4 EVO 2. What a mistake. This game is SO tough. I have already been playing for a month and I have yet to win a race, yet I do everything the same as I did in the first version that won me the races. I travel straight, keep my wheels on the ground, avoid obstacles, turn carefully as to not scrub speed, yet everytime I am racing I get passed like I am standing still no matter what I am driving. Then to make it worse, everytime I hit even the slightest obstacle with my 14" lift and 37" race tires, I come to a screeching halt while other drivers seem to bounce right off it. Then if they hit me (which they always do because they can't drive and keep a line) it sends me into boulders or trees or whatever, but if I hit them, they simply get right back onto track going even faster than before. I think this game has some serious AI issues to work out. Maybe in the next version they should have multiple levels (like beginner, amateur, ace, pro or something) and make it a little easier to win every once in a while. I used to play the original for hours at a time, but with 4x4 EVO 2, I make it through 3 races in 3rd or 4th place and I quit. Then I go back into 4x4 EVO and play and I can win again. The graphics are good, the sounds could be improved, but are fair, and I like the additions to the game play (such as missions and teams). I wish that this could be geared a little more toward the beginner as I see plenty of people could become easily frustrated and ditch the game as I have. But at least the game company made their money, right?

    1-0 out of 5 stars 4x4 Evolution 2 RIP-OFF
    I guess I expect for games to work correctly when I pay good money for them. This game would barely install...took 45 minutes!!! When I finally got it installed, it wouldn't play, it just kept trying to reinstall. After repeated efforts, I finally got it installed. Once it begins to play, it has many glitches...like an old LP that skips over and over. If my son has to leave the computer to go to the bathroom, the game shuts down and you have to go through reinstalling it again. I am terribly dissatisfied with this game!

    Where do I begin. This game CLAIMS to have LOTS OF UPGRADES and TRUCKS, it does, but there's only about 8 NEW UPGRADES, and they GOT RID OF FORD. I'm not a FORD fan, but FORD has some cool trucks. Also, WHERE ARE THE BIG TRUCKS?! No 2500 models (except SUV's)They had LEXUS in this game but NO HEAVY DUTY TRUCKS! There are some NEW CARRER MODES, and THEY DO HAVE JEEP, but thats the only reason I gave this game 2 stars. The CHASE CAMERA changes angles, if you go slow; it's like your LOOKING AT YOUR FEET. If you go to fast it becomes difficult to see your truck. They had a bumper view and a a blimp view also, but that's it. If you'r just going to use cheats than this can be a great game, but you can't use the MONSTER TRUCK in career till GMC likes you. It's to HARD TO WIN also. All the other racers are always 1 foot ahead of you, they have faster and heavyer cars too. However, your truck does get dirty and you do get to wash it. This is just my opinion, it really isn't too bad with cheats, but if you stink at racing, stay away from the race menu on this game. One good game is CABELLAS' 4X4 OFF-ROAD ADVENTURE. That game is easy enough you won't really need cheats, and hardenough you wont be board any time soon. Thank's for taking the time to read this. Sep.23, 2002

    Not a bad game to pass the seedy early hours of the morning, but well Mc'Craig kicks this youngsters game!

    1-0 out of 5 stars Warning Mac Users
    I paid for the First Edition of 4x4 Evo, and got an unfinished game. The game was fun and occasionally playable, but the release was riddled with bugs that made things like opening a saved game impossible. When the patch was released to fix the unfinished product it was a PC only patch. I hope Aspyr has gotten better with 4x4 2, but I feel totally ripped off by the original version of the game... ...

    1-0 out of 5 stars Warning- won't run on iBook G3
    Don't buy this game if you expect to install it and run it on a G3 iBook. It freezes up on the first frame and goes no further. An unhappy Christmas gift experience to be avoided. Although it says "designed for OS X", I don't think anyone at the company has actually tried it on a new computer. My son's 4 month old iBook exceeds all the requirements, but it sure doesn't work.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Demo rocks, but full game has been a long wait...
    I've been playing the demo version of KSPS for mac on my 887mhz G4 powerbook 12" since it was released and am fully stoked. The gameplay tends to be smoother than the PS2 version and the graphics have more detail. I play with the PS2 Dual Shock controller plugged in via usb with an imported converter called the "PS-PC USB 2.0 Converter V," and it feels just like a console game.
    Load times in the demo are fairly good, and as long as I don't turn on full anti-aliasing, the only lag during play is in the first second of the first wave.
    If you are unfamiliar with the game: fans of the Tony Hawk Pro Skater series will dig this water-based reincarnation. Surfers will surely enjoy this game, especially on flatter days... As for me (I also fit into the two above categories), this is one of the few video games that has next to no violence yet still sppeals to the above five crowd.
    I've been waiting for this game since Aspyr said they were going to have it available in early June! A long wait, but well worth it. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fun Game
    I like this game, even though I lost this first bizillion times

    2-0 out of 5 stars Fun simple game...
    There is not too much interaction with the characters from the movie. The game begins with a fun clip with the characters and proceeds to a bumper pool game which Sully(invisible to the eye) narrates. He makes little comments about your shots and tells you whose turn it is. If you want a simple game of pool, go for it. If you want a game full of monsters, it might be disappointing. ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars Waste of hard drive.
    One of the best movies ever, gets one of the worst games ever. This game will ruin bowling for anyone. The game is frustrating because the ball will run into objects in the alley, unless you guide the ball with the arrow keys. Guiding the ball is tough, because it only moves a little, not enough to get around an obstical. If you try to move it faster it will go into the gutter. Don't buy this game! In short, this disc is one expensive coaster.

    4-0 out of 5 stars I Love It!
    It is not an easy game at first. But who wants to win a game right out of the box. Once you get the knack of using the arrow keys to move around the obstacles, it is lots of fun. I am actually addicted. Can't wait to get home and start playing again.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Save your $$$$$$
    I bought if for my 4 year old, and she lost intrest in less than 5 minutes. When an adult has a rough time playing it - it has to be bad! Keep looking for something else to play.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Terrible Game
    I got this to play with my sons on the computer because I am terrible at computer games expect for easy games like bowling, etc. My kids are great at games and even they had trouble with this one. It is very difficult to guide the ball around the objects in the alley and the scoring is hard to follow. My kids hate it and want me to throw it out! I wanted to give this a "no star" rating but you have to put in at least one.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Bowling with Mike!!!
    Sometimes, even Monsters need a break! When players join one eyed Mike Wazowski for a action packed game of bowling, they won't want to stop playing. The game also has great graphics and two difficulty settings-Scary and Horrifying.

    In order to make a strike, you'll need to guide your ball. Obstacles such as ramps and pinball style bumpers are all over the bowling alley, so be careful! You can also collect cool power-ups, like one that can make your ball explode upon impact with the pins.

    I had SO much fun while playing this thing, and I think anyone who liked the movie will have a blast with this. I really hope Disney will make arcade games as good as this one for some of their other movies, like "The Emporer's New Groove". ... Read more

    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

    2-0 out of 5 stars I was really wishing for better Mac version...
    I'm a huge Wipeout fan ever since it was one of the first true 3D hardware-enabled titled for the PC. Besides the PC, I've played versions for the PS2 and Nintendo 64. Upon seeing this for the Mac, I just about went nuts and ordered a copy. Nothing but disappointment since. I've tried running it on my older PPC Mac (OS 9.1), but it doesn't like my 3DFX card very much, the frame rate studders quite a bit, and the graphics have a washed-out look. Moving over to my more modern G4 Cube and OSX, the frame rate problem goes away, but the graphics are still very washed out with a 'gray' tone to them along with bad visual effects, like the explosions and hovercraft vapour trails. Network playability also only appears to work under OS 9.1, I haven't figured out how to get the option enabled under OSX. This is not the same quality game I remember from my earlier PC and console gaming days, so far just a big letdown. ... Read more
