    NFL 2011 in Review

    NFL2011 The success of last year's NFL 2010 game has brought about the release of NFL 2011. This amazing iPhone game has been upgraded to feature stunning graphics and exciting gameplay. These visual improvements make for a fun game for both children and adults.

    NFL 2011 is a fun football simulator which has been optimized for the iPhone 4 and it brings the most popular teams and players to the mobile screen. Like the Saints, Colts, Peyton Manning, Adrian Peterson and Tony Romo. NFL 2011 allows users to experience the most complex and accomplished football simulator of the year. Gameloft has definitely improved on a flawless concept both graphically and during gameplay. The game features full rosters of every NFL team including commentary, an extensive playbook and a wide variety of moves and tackles. Most users note that the commentary feels very realistic as it is not overly repetitive. The graphics are exceptionally crisp and the animation is very smooth, a worthwhile upgrade from last year's itchy and archaic animations. The playbook offers over 200 different plays that can also be edited to your liking and an assistant coach for making those difficult choices a little easier.

    Game Disadvantages

    There are several drawbacks to NFL 2011. Firstly, a user cannot make their own player or trade team members like in many other football simulation games. Secondly there is no multiplayer mode. This means the game cannot be played with other people over the Internet or even nearby. Also, its earlier release featured a 30 second video which was very tedious each time the game was started. NFL 2011 has since replaced this video with a longer promotional video which most users express a strong wish to get rid of completely.
