The sequel to NES Play Action Football, Super Play Action Football looks a little better than its 8-bit counterpart, but it suffers from the same basic malady — a three-quarter perspective that makes controls and passing awkward and gives players a too-small view of the field. Twenty-eight NFL teams are represented by their official logos, but, unlike the original game (which fielded eight teams sans the logos), there is no NFLPA license, meaning there are no real players represented. One clear advantage this game has over its predecessor is that the camera zooms out when a pass is thrown. The biggest disadvantage, however, is the lack of a four-player mode. Super Play Action Football has plenty of options, plays, and realistic attributes (such as diving, stiff arming, and twisting away from tackles), but its faults make it vastly inferior to Tecmo Super Bowl (and most every other 16-bit football game). ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
