People say:

9.0

The original Madden football game still ranks as one of the top games I've ever played and Madden '92 takes the game play of the original to even greater heights. The opponents are now more difficult, players can be hurt and digitized crowds cheer you on! Absolutely excellent!

9.0

EA knows sports! The first Madden was perfect and this version improves on it. There's nothing better on the market for any format! Nuff said!

Go away Joey. Madden does it two years in a row. This is the best football game available for any system. It has great graphics and sound effects and the best play control around. Add in an instant reply and you got the best of the best. More of what football fans want.

9.0

Hail, Madden! Madden '92 destroys the competition once more with a football title light-years ahead of its predecessor! The plays are better, the players smarter! Let's not forget that Instant Replay! I can't wait for Madden '93 or maybe a Madden Classic with players from the past.

If It Ain't Broke, Don't Fix It

Rather than going back to the drawing board for JMF '92, the guys at EA kept much of the stuff that made JMF '91 so great -- passing windows, real NFL teams, weather factors, etc.

But there's always room for improvement, so JMF '92 sports plenty of new features. Numero uno is a dramatic beefing up of the weenie computer's artificial intelligence. In John Madden '92, the computer actually learns and reacts to your playcalling tendencies - you heard right -- a SMART computer opponent! Those Protips we gave you for JMF '91? Forget them!

But wait, there's more! JMF '92 has new formations on defense and offense (such as the Run and Shoot and the 4-6 Eagle defense), a great instant replay feature that you control, quarterback substitutions, coaching profiles, user-controlled weather, and turf, grass, and domed stadiums. Your ball carriers can also hurdle diving tacklers!

ProTips:

  • Mix plays! The computer recognizes offensive and defensive tendencies.
  • Against a computer team, position a speedy linebacker between two offensive linemen, a step or two forward (but not off-sides). At the snap, you can charge through the line -- right into the backfield. NOTE: This only works during the first half, then the computer adjusts.
  • Okay, Buffalo Bills fans, here are some playoff passwords: Quarter Finals -- DT2T002F, Semi-Finals -- DVTY8T9N, Super Bowl -- DWJ4NLPV.
  • If you use a team with a "money" back (Buffalo -- #34, Detroit -- #20, Chicago -- #35, Dallas -- #22, All-Madden Team -- #20) run the HB Toss Left and other running plays that take advantage of his speed. Hit C for a burst of speed!
  • There are no "automatic" defenses against the computer, but here's a Buffalo defensive play with a high rate of success: Select Nickel Defense, Read, and Bump and Run. Control #78 (he's on the left end of the line). At the snap, blitz the quarterback with #78.

Postgame Highlights

So now the big question -- if I already own John Madden Football '91 or Joe Montana Football '91, should I invest in John Madden Football '92? If you're a sports fan, your answer is "YES!"

John Madden Football '92 features the most talented computer opponent ever -- 'nuff said! Add to this the additional plays, two-player cooperative play, and improved graphics, and JMF '92 gives you great bang for your buck.
