Madden NFL 96




Madden NFL 96 


We had a lot of fun playing Madden NFL 96 here at Family Friendly Gaming. We even did a video capture of this game. This is one of the most difficult Madden NFL video games I have ever played. The options in Madden NFL 96 are Play Now, NFL Season Play, Front Office, and Records. We played Madden NFL 96 on the Super NES. It is on other systems with the Genesis being the closest to this version.

Madden NFL 96 looks good for its era. It is funny to see some of the scrolling, and scaling in this game. The players do not have a lot of detail to them. It can be hard to tell if you can break a tackle or fall down with the player with the ball. I question some of the lack of penalties in Madden NFL 96. I noticed a couple of times when there was clear pass interference and the game did nothing.

Timing is very important in Madden NFL 96. If you want to have a successful pass you will need to time it out perfectly. Most of the time I had to throw before the receiver got there and I was not able to see if a safety was coming over or not. This led to interceptions at times in Madden NFL 96. A lot of balls get batted away at the line of scrimmage too. Expect to lose a lot in Madden NFL 96.

There are plenty of interesting sound bytes in Madden NFL 96. I liked hearing all of the collision noises in this retro sports video game. The pre-game presentation must be read. So a basic reading ability is needed to understand where the teams strengths and weaknesses are. Expect to punt a lot in Madden NFL 96. I started to get good at punting in Madden NFL 96.

I purchased Madden NFL 96 for $2.95 on the Super NES from a local used game store. I feel like I got my moneys worth out of Madden NFL 96. The video will most likely come out a few days to a week after the review. Keep an eye out for Tampa Bay versus Jacksonville. Both of us got a lot better with Madden NFL 96 by the end of that game. Madden NFL 96 is still really stiff.
