GFL Championship Football
Copyright/Publisher: Activision/Gamestar, Release Year: 1986,
Genre: American Football, Number Of Players: 1 or 2

If you've been watching this year's World League, you'll have noticed how crap the London Monarchs played. You'll also have seen a brilliant piece of technology known as the helmet-cam: this tiny camera fits inside a player's helmet to show an incredible view of bone-crunching tackles.

GFL features a similar player's-eye view and even some garbled (realistic?!) quarterback speech. Sadly, your part in the 3-D arcade sequences is limited to moving your joystick to follow a sequence of arrows. Consequently you never really feel in control.

On the plus side, there are plenty of plays to try out and 28 teams to choose from. Best fun with two players.
