A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this game.
While is simply to defeat rival teams, cooperative, multiplayer modes do encourage teamwork.
Positive Role Models
The cartoony characters model good sportsmanship, teamwork, and friendly competion.
Ease of Play
Novices to the complexities of football can enjoy the game with a minimum of training and practice. Younger players, however, will need some parental assistance on the basics, as there aren't adequate tutorials included.
Violence & Scariness
Cartoony characters tackle one another sometimes producing "dizzy stars," but leaving each other unharmed otherwise.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Family Fun Football is an appropriate choice for introducing younger kids to the game of football. The game features teams with cartoony, human characters and mascots, and no violence beyond "dizzy stars" sometimes produced by a tackle. There are no injuries, foul language, or unsportsmanlike moments, just colorful, simple gameplay. Kids over the target age of seven who have a greater knowledge of football and its finer points may be disappointed by the lack of depth in this game.
Is It Any Good?
Family Fun Football offers decent, simple play for young novices. By limiting the playcalling to four on both offense and defense, complexity is stripped away and it's much simpler to learn and repeat options. But the game could use a bit more polish; graphics are poor and the range of additional features and depth in tournament and season modes might disappoint players with any knowledge of other football videogame offerings. For very young gamers, however, this is a decent introduction to the game.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
