This isn't a bad football game, really. Not so much bad as it is sloppy. If this game had been tightened just a bit; more animation frames, more attention to minor graphical and sound details, this could have been "A" material. As it stands, it's just okay. An okay football game to blow a half hour on when you're waiting to leave for an appointment, or the such. If you're into football, pick it up, because you'll love the thrill of the quick pace of the game. If you're a casual player who happens to enjoy football AND can look past the small shortcomings that NFL Quarterback Club '96 has, it makes for a decent purchase.
