Most of the fun in Bill Walsh College Football can be found in playing it yourself and amassing stats and creating football memories that would rival some of the all time great plays and games that have been played on the frozen tundras and fields of battle. The game is not spectacularly built; I mean its just basically Madden'94 with smaller and slower players, so where in the face value is the greatness? I guess if by face value you mean the front of the box – which is excellent. Look at it. It almost says "Welcome to Joe Bill Walsh College Football" just like in Joe Montana Football. This is such a good game, but like the kids on the beloved show Reading Rainbow say, don't take my word for it! Go out and pick this one up, it's pure football greatness.
Game Players
Including last year's top 24 college teams plus another two dozen all-time best, this one really shines. The overall effect is a more exciting, emotional game than John Madden. (4-Way Play compatible).
All Game Guide
If you already own a copy of one of the John Madden Football titles, you shouldn't invest your hard-earned money in Bill Walsh College Football. The game isn't as exciting as it should be, but if you prefer the college game over the NFL, consider a rental.
The Video Game Critic
Playing this game may give you deja-vu, because it's basically Madden '94 with college teams and a new playbook. Since Madden '94 isn't so bad, Bill Walsh isn't bad either, but it doesn't really offer anything new like the Sega College Football games did. You can play as one of 48 teams, including 24 from 1992 and the top 24 since 1978. The problem is you'll want to play as your hometown team, but chances are it isn't included! See the Madden '94 review for more details on gameplay.
Je ne critique pas les écrans d'options ou de choix de tactiques, ni le système de vue du jeu. Ce que je critique, ce sont les graphismes baveux et les animations vaseuses. Enfin, last but not least, la maniabilité lors des actions n'est pas un modèle du genre.
