What parents need to know
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that NFL Flick Quarterback is an arcade-style sports game that is licensed by the NFL. The sole purpose of the game is to hone passing skills, targeting receivers and avoiding interceptions, so there's no tackling or other violent aspects of the game on display. The game also features a trick show mode, where you knock buckets over by throwing a ball at them. Users can share high scores via the Game Center social network, but participation is optional.
Is it any good?
It may never be accused of being a deep game, but NFL FLICK QUARTERBACK is a supremely entertaining title that is sure to please. The objective is simple: Make increasingly accurate passes and trick shots to rise through the ranks. There's very little strategy, but it also gives casual football fans a chance to play a licensed game featuring their favorite team without having to stress over calling the wrong play.
The visuals are fantastic. The trivia bits interspersed throughout the game are interesting. And none of the play modes is a clunker. It's a terrific time waster -- and we mean that in the kindest way possible.
