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.

Here's a football game with a difference: it's easy to learn!

With names like Grizzlies and Hunters, it's sure to be a furious fight to the goal line! A large play-book at your disposal lets you pick the best offensive plays. Bash your opponents into the ground if they get in your way. scaling and rotation add to the excitement when you score.

People say:

4.0

This game has an extremely attractive perspective and accommodating character animations, but the sounds, play calling and overall action weaken a nice setup. The impact and excitement of the game just isn't captured in this title. What points Fury earns in presentation, it loses times two in execution.

6.0

There really isn't much room for another 'normal' football game. Sammy did the right thing by taking all the rules and throwing them out and starting from scratch. What they ended up wit is a spectacular game of 'anything goes' football. Since violence is the 'in' thing these days, Football Fury should do quite well.

5.0

I did not like this cart at all. The control is sluggish and the overall game is slow and boring. There are a number of plays, but the execution is so poor that you struggle to get them going. The cinemas for touchdowns and halftime are OK and the rotation of the field is a neat effect. This cart proves to be a mediocre attempt at best.

8.0

Never in my wildest dreams did I think Nintendo would allow this game to fly. Football was never this violent, but I like it! While it could be smoother and incorporate a few more plays, the humor factor alone is enough to keep you playing for hours! Just try taking out the referee or dancing in the mine fields!
