|One of the excellent celebrity endorsed football games by one of the
true legends of the sport. For those of you unfamiliar with American pro
football, John Madden started out as a player, then moved on to become a
coach, then after retiring became one of the game's most popular television
sportscasters. The basic game engine and outstanding gameplay remained the
same throughout, with all the usual tweaking and fiddling with the graphics,
sound, and user options. It really doesn't matter which one in the series
you play - they're all worth the trouble. The series spawned many imitators
over the years, but few came close to matching this football gaming classic.
In John Madden Football '93 the graphics as a whole have improved considerably, along with the digital animation - now Coach Madden looks like he's dancing the rhumba, but at least he's recognizable. Also adds split-screen play calling, quarterback "stop clock" gameplay, and no-huddle offenses.
