Younger football fans, and anybody overwhelmed by complex video football games, will welcome American Sammy's Football Fury. Touted as "user-friendly football", this SNES game simplifies the play options and the control to keep the emphasis on the action. With teams like the Buffalo Bighorns and Miami Sharks competing for the Ultra Bowl, it's not NFL action, unfortunately, but VFL (Video Football League) action instead.
ProTip: When returning kicks, keep your runner behind his blockers until he can break free.
The game mainly relies on a side-scrolling %-overhead view, plus some Mode 7 zooming rotation. The sprites, which are ill-defined and cartoony, tend to be too sluggish for serious gamers, but younger players might not mind. As for realistic sounds, such as a crunching hit, you'll find that they're kept to a minimum.
Rookies will be entertained by Football Fury, but they'll eventually want to jump to the real NFL with Madden or Montana. Till then, this is a nice game to train on.
