A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this game.

Positive Messages

The message here is a soft one and centers on gambling. The players' roster is tied to real-world NFL players and points are earned based on the performance of those players in each week's NFL games.

Positive Role Models & Representations

There are no in-game role models presented other than non-playable coaches and owners that call through the user interface and recommend more players or better facilities. Of course, these items will cost money, thus pulling players along toward purchasing in-game money using real-world credit cards.

Ease of Play

This game is not that easy to understand initially and no help is offered with an in-game reference manual or even a handy link to off-site instructions. The general instructions presented at the start of the game are run through quickly and seem a tad more convoluted than is necessary for what the game really offers.

Violence
Sex
Language
Consumerism

Like many Facebook games, there is a shortcut to buying better talent for your fantasy football team and that is by using real-world money to buy in-game dollars. The game is not very clear on how to earn dollars other than to purchase players for your roster.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Title Town Football is a Facebook game that tries to emulate fantasy football leagues. Players try to acquire the top talent in the NFL and then put together a roster for each weeks' real-world games. The performance of players in those real games rewards players. The shortcut to getting top talent is to buy in-game cash with real-world money.

What's it about?

TITLE TOWN FOOTBALL is a browser-based Facebook application that is, at its core, a fantasy football league. Players will do tasks to earn stamina, sign players, select line-ups for each week's NFL games, and then are rewarded based on the performance of their players in those games. The game, though, runs through the initial instructions quickly and while some of the items in the menu are self-explanatory, there are several other elements that are not. The game appears to be predicated on encouraging players to use real-world money to buy in-game 'bills' in order to sign top talent to their rosters. There are mini-games to play that increase the amount of coins players have for upgrading facilities. Stamina to play the mini-games is collected over time, so the game does have time limits per game session. There is a ranking system in place to show players how good they are doing in terms of player performances and upgrading facilities.

Is it any good?

The idea for Title Town Football may have been solid, but the execution is not very good. The game takes simple ideas, makes them seem more difficult than necessary, and then does not provide players with information beyond that which is first presented. If you skip through the initial instructions you are on your own from that point on. There are better fantasy football leagues out there, and better Facebook football games available as well, such as Madden NFL Superstars.

Online interaction: Rivals can be selected from other Facebook players, but there seems to be no general reason for it other than to connect through the game. There is no direct interaction with other players.
