Under rating threshold (show) This is one of the best games on Kongregate right now, and it only gets better with each update. I wish that there was a screen where we could see defensive statistics, like probability of sacking, intercepting, forcing a fumble, etc. Also, it would be nice if there was a chance that an interception could lead to a touchdown, as that is a feature that the opposing teams seem to love to use.

Under rating threshold (show) Amazing game, each update adds so much more and its starting to become a really in depth football game. After playing 59 seasons, I still enjoy the game. Would be amazing if there was a chance to even just see your defence on the field. I understand that it may be difficult to add gameplay of a defensive player (say a safety for example) but just watching the oppositions offensive capabilities would be awesome. Keep at it siread, your game is one of my favourites!

Under rating threshold (show) I've been watching the extremely slow development of an LB, whom that even though he is named for making tackles in the game script, the stats do not show them and therefore no XP increase. Seems buggy...?

Under rating threshold (show) lol wow... My offense is 4 stars, and this team I just played is 0 stars defense... This is the first 0 stars team I have encountered. Their 0 stars defense is the BEST defense I have played against so far. They have intercepted every single pass I have thrown, they run faster than my 5 star rated running back and wide receiver, and have great tackle ratings. 0 stars = nuclear Ghandi?

Under rating threshold (show) this game literally carried me mentally through my my freshman year of high-school! i'm a sophomore currently and it's still keeping me sane i love this game! oh and one suggestion should add the option for the running back to throw the ball once he's caught it...

Under rating threshold (show) OT rules are still wrong (at least for the playoffs/Retro Bowl); if both teams kick a field goal, the game goes to sudden death (first score of any kind wins). Right now in game, OT just keeps going until one team scores a touchdown regardless.

Under rating threshold (show) This game is amazing and definitely one of if not the best game on Kongregate. There are only a few changes that I would suggest and here they are. I think there should be in-game fouls. For example, if the defender shoves my tight end over 15 yards past the line of scrimmage, it should be a foul. Also, I think that there should be a screen in which you can see your teams and singular players' stats. Lastly, I think that if a player is hurt, they should be taken out as soon as they are injured instead of waiting until the end of the game for them to be hurt

Under rating threshold (show) I don't know if this would be too much to ask. But I think adding playbooks would make this game perfect. Before a play, you can choose a formation and the plays In that formation. You can have your "standard" formations used today such as shotgun, pistol, single back, I form, weak I, strong I, and so on, but it would cool to also see wishbone, wing t something madden doesn't even have. What would be cool is if you allow the player to create the playbook. Just add circles on a field that you can rearrange, and the certain routes that you can run. Personally, I think that would be cool. So far this game is really cool and the updates keep getting better and better, and would love to see playbooks or the option to create your own, in the future.

Under rating threshold (show) When your max speed, max stamina, 5-star RB breaks away but gets run down and tackled by a guy who started 40 yards behind him, you know there's a juicing problem.

Under rating threshold (show) this game is better awesome though it does have a couple issues. If you are on the 49 yard line it will consider you in kicking range and not give you an option to punt and can really be annoying if your on 4th and many yards. Also most recievers wont catch a bullet pass so if you could update the percent to catch that would be amazing and maybe add touchpad option for bullet pass to the game. Thank you nad great game

Under rating threshold (show) This game is excellently made. You paid a ridiculous amount of attention to detail and the gameplay is fantastic. I am older and I remember these types of games for older consoles, this is really, really great. I do wish that you had the ability to pick which plays were in the playbook. Maybe have the player put together a playbook by picking some preset plays, then each play picks a random play from the playbook. If not, and it's just more of the same, keep it up. Really, really great job.

Under rating threshold (show) It was a really fun game. I ended up playing 3.5 seasons. I have to put it away now. The biggest con for me is the pass interference. I like to pick challenging teams to work with and since my players are constantly being wrestled by the defense it makes the passing game very frustrating at times. Another con is that it often appears as though the ball bounces off the ground, but the defender still intercepts it. Some nice improvement would be to have an easier play change/choice feature and better game credit system to purchase free agents and staff. Changing plays is not terrible, it's just tideous. It would great to have an easier way to thumb throw types of plays or even make a playbook. It takes a very long time to accumulate enough credits to buy new staff and free agents. IT would also be nice to see how staff affect the players individually. Like, some staff are better for passing game, others for running, others average, etc. Great game overall though, 5/5 for sure.
