Madden NFL 97





Madden NFL 97 


When I go back and play retro sports video games I am usually not expecting much. Especially after I got the game for such a low price. Madden NFL 97 on the Sega Saturn surprised me on so many levels. Every so often there was a stellar Madden video game. Madden NFL 97 was one of those years. Did you catch the live stream Teen Gamer and I did of Madden NFL 97? If you missed it please click here.

The first thing we noticed about Madden NFL 97 is how quickly it loaded compared to modern current generation video games. Madden NFL 97 puts modern current video games to shame. Graphically Madden NFL 97 looked way better than I expected it to. We have fun sound bytes from John Madden that enhance the gameplay of this sports title. The modes in Madden NFL 97 are All Time Records, Exhibition, Season, Tournament, and Options.

I really like how Madden NFL 97 controls. We can run and pass in this video game. I loved being able to get good gains because I figured out how to avoid the defense in Madden NFL 97. I always felt like I had a chance to break a big gain whether I did or not. Madden NFL 97 made me feel like my choices when running with the ball mattered. All of the NFL teams are present and accounted for from that era. I love seeing the Houston Oilers again in video games.

The presentation of Madden NFL 97 is top notch. There are plenty of plays to choose from in Madden NFL 97. Two family members can enjoy Madden NFL 97 at the same time. Teen Gamer and I both had fun playing Madden NFL 97. We worked together to figure out the controls and then were off the races once we knew what buttons to press at what times. I would love to see more football video games in the vein of Madden NFL 97 on the Playstation and Sega Saturn. Do you agree?
