By comparison, Real Soccer 2009 is 65 mb in size. Not that size always = substance, but 3.5 mb just does not seem adequate for a meaty 3D sports game. Let's see...

Ehhh... I bought it just because I love football. Tackling sucks. Passing is terrible... they run their routes and stand there. Runnings alright. Not a badly put together game, but the gameplay is boring as it could possibly be. Good time killer, but I should have waited for the price to go down.

I love football, but I'm not impressed with this. I'll wait until Madden comes to the iPhone, if ever

I've waiting and waiting for a football game, but this looks pretty shabby.

Either the players are like four times their normal size, or the field is tiny.
