Reviews:

CD-ROM Today, March 1996

"If you've ever had to explain why you absolutely have to spend Thanksgiving Day planted in front of your wide-screen, this disc will do it for you. Football helps with percentages, equalities, averaging, and decimals. The game is really a giant math lesson, cleverly disguised with shoulder pads and Gatorade.

"At least, it appears that way, judging From NFL Math. Designed for 8 to 12 year olds (whom you couldn't teach to eat candy and watch TV if they didn't want to), the disc is an attempt to yoke children's natural attraction to watching grown men pound each other into soup with their not-so-natural attraction to performing math equations.

"By and large the attempt succeeds...Kids who love football (and who could use a boost in the math department) will genuinely enjoy this."
