All in all, this game has a user-friendly interface that would appeal to any football gamer on all levels. We highly recommend it to first time buyers and to those who are avid football lovers who want a good sports title. NFL GameDay '98 is the game to get.
NFL GameDay '98 is a great technical feat and a very fun football game.
GameDay 98 isn't all bad, in fact, its pretty good. In the midst of all the options and moves there is a challenging football game. There will be no lopsided scores and you won't be able to use the same play for the whole game like you could with GameDay. Still the fact of the matter is that when you take away all the smoke and mirrors (and polygons), GameDay98 is just a rehash of GameDay and GameDay 97. The fact that GameDay 98 is getting a worse grade than '97 doesn't mean that it is a worse game. The two are actually fairly equal, but games are supposed to get better over time. This year, GameDay just doesn't take the ball to that next 10 yard line...
The Video Game Critic
The lack of a half-time show is disappointing, but I guess it would be hard to create curvacious cheerleaders out of such angular polygons. The play selection screen is better this year, but it can be frustratingly hard to find basic plays like "punt". I hate the quarterback's high-pitched voice, and the pixelated crowd looks awful. The PA announcer is back, and he still has no idea what the hell is going on. GameDay 98 took a few steps forward, but the franchise still had a ways to go.
