Grid Iron
By Top Ten

This is deeply disappointing, I'm afraid. Coded and released at speed (in part by Top Ten's Darryl Still - we name the guilty men!) because of the chart success by other formats, it is a Basic only, text only American football manager package.

Now American football I find amazingly exciting - in fact, the only sport I watch - but this might just as well be about Association football! The usual decisions abound: buying/selling players, etc, etc. But it plays just like a magazine listing and has none of the features (like a title screen) that one would expect.

Sorry to be so negative but even with a player named Reeder in the game, I just can't get excited about it.
