Tom Landry Strategy Football
The real meat of the game is play calling. On both offense and defense, you have a multitude of plays that you can use to best exploit your strengths and the other teams weaknesses. What's that? You say that you don't know much about calling plays or defensive formations. Worry not! If you really need help, you can seek advice from Tom Landry himself on each and every play with details good enough to make a super coach out of you in no time. Another good thing about this game is that you can form your league with any teams that you desire and the game has a truly wonderful stat keeper that in league play keeps a very entertaining set of stats on every team including rushing, receiving,passing, etc. Leaders. You also have the ability to scout teams before you play them so that you can build your game plays around all of their strengths and weaknesses. This game even charts the opponents play calling tendencies and lets you know what play they are more apt to use in certain instances and positions of the field.
I think that the only thing missing from this game is the ability to trade players and maybe team disks for new seasons, although I may be wrong on the team disks because it does seem to allow them if they existed. I used a hex editor and changed some of the team's stats so that the Atlanta Falcons became a better team than any real life Falcon team ever dreamed of being. One more Thing. I mentioned the grea! t stat compiler built into this game. At a glance from beginning to end you can see what players are leading in every category of stats. I really can't find anything to gripe about in this game and I enjoyed playing it immensely. I would have to rate this one 5 stars out of a possible 5. If you like strategy football they don't get any better than this one. And if you don't like strategy football then why are you reading this?
