Joe Montana Football

Quite strange really that such a disappointing game should spawn two sequels, but it did - presumably relying on the "big" Joe Montana name to sell such a tepid sports sim.

What We Said Then

Jaz: If you haven't got any American Football game and want one, buy John Madden's.

Joe Montana Football

Matt: It's far more accessible than its rival, so younger Megadrive owners might find it preferable to Madden's (Reck-on - Rich)

What We Say Now

Jaz: What I said then still applies now. Some things never change...

Rich: This is quite a jolly little game, but is sadness in cartridge form when compared to its sequels and the entire Madden catalogue of games. Lop off 15% from each rating and I might be happier.
