College Football USA 96

New features and more than 100 teams make EA's College Football USA '96 the most authentic and in-depth Genesis college football game yet.

Did You Say 100 Teams?

Actually, you have 108 teams to choose from. Whether you want to play with championship-caliber teams such as Nebraska or Penn State or attempt to win the National Championship with a local underdog, it's up to you.

ProTip: Although it's difficult to learn initially, choose the new passing system over the old because it gives you five receivers instead of three.

Beginners should start out with one of the top teams because EA finally made a football game where the computer puts up a fight. The computer's A.I. utilizes each team's strengths to their maximum capacity.

Fist Full of Features

Bill Walsh and his advice no longer grace this College series, but many enhancements have been added to the game. The new Tournament mode allows you to battle it out either head-to-head or in round-robin competition with up to 16 other players. Other added features include a new passing option where you can choose from five receivers on every play, an MVP tracking system, a host of new penalties, 200 new plays, and four Bowl games.

The graphics are a big improvement over last year's college ball, even if they are almost identical to those of Madden '95. The sharper sprites make player movements more defined and draw you into the game with an intensity not felt in other games.

The sound delivers with every lineman's grunt and bone- crunching tackle. However, the crowd noise occasionally becomes a bit static.

  • Pick a team with a fast QB. It will give you many more options when running your offense.
  • Blitz a linebacker or a safety up the middle for your best chance at a sack. The best place to rush is in the gap between the offensive guard and the center.

A critical new control aspect, jumping, has been added to the gameplay. Now you can make your players soar into the sky to snatch a high pass or block that game-winning field goal. Whether you're spinning out of a tackle or hurdling over a defender, the controls are excellent.

The New National Champion

It's hard to believe the amount of improvements made to last year's outstanding Bill Walsh game. College Football '96 is a must for both football fanatics and the occasional fan.

Watch out when you try to block kicks with the penalty option on. If you run into the kicker, it may mean a 15-yard penalty and loss of ball.

This is the exact same game as last year's Bill Walsh College Football, except that they dropped ol' Bill and added about a million other teams, most of which you never even heard of. So, if you wanna play as the East Mudflap Plover Hens, you can.
