Game Revolution
What all 750 of these words mean is that Madden '99 is the best Madden ever, as well the greatest leap a Madden title has ever made in one year. It has improved even more than '97 improved over '95--the year(s) Madden went from 16-bit to 32-bit (Madden '96 was never shipped). Quite simply, it doesn't get much better than this, folks.
Make no mistake, American footie fans will take to this like William Perry to your, er, refrigerator. Even if you’re not too fussed about the sport in general, this game acts as a good eye-opener to showcase what you’ve been missing out on, and makes a great multi-player game into the early hours.
Mega Fun
Als NFL-und NFL-Europe-Fan habe ich Madden NFL99 natürlich besonders entgegengefiebert und muß sagen, daß ich nicht enttäuscht wurde. Die vielen Verbesserungen liegen zwar im Detail, aber die Summe hat sich unterm Strich mehr als bezahlt gemacht. Grafisch fehlt zwar streckenweise die nötige Power, auch der Sound hätte knackiger sein können, aber was solls. Die Spieltiefe und der Simulationscharakter stellen alle bisher erschienenen Football-Games für die PlayStation in den Schatten. Wer schon die 98er Variante hat, darf auch heuer bedenkenlos zugreifen.
Consoles Plus
Comme d'habitude, les fans adoreront. Par contre Madden 99 laissera indifférents la majorité des joueurs français.
In the end, Madden is a serious football sim, no doubt. It's better looking, faster, deeper, and bigger than last year's game. But it's still not snatched back the gold that was once solely EA's. This year that crown goes to another game.
In my opinion, this is the best playing football game to date. It may not be as pretty to look at but it really gets the job done. Everything is realistic and feels like a football simulation. If you are looking for a more arcade type game, you can change a few options and play a faster, less complicated version of the game but face it, die hard Madden fans want the real deal. It is nice to see that Madden is back on top.
In the end, when it comes down to it, Madden 99 is simply the best Madden game to date. While this is the first NFL football game to come out this season, it's safe to say that Madden 99 will be one of the best football games to ship this year.
Power Unlimited
Naast de A.I. en de gameplay, die nog verder verbeterd zijn en voor een bijna perfecte football-simulatie zorgen, maken vooral de kleine details in de animaties dat Madden 99 ver boven de andere football games uitsteekt. Voor beginnelingen is Madden 99 geen gemakkelijke kost, maar de gevorderd footballer kan zijn ei kwijt met de bijna onuitputtelijke hoeveelheid teams, spelers en wedstrijden! Dit is een spel, dat ik vaker ga spelen.
