Overall this game is just so polished, you'd almost say it's shiny, even if it's not Shiny...it's a lizard, er, Iguana. Anyway, if you're a gridiron gladiator armed with a 32X, it all boils down to: BUY THIS GAME!!
Although the 32X version lacks the unique Quarterback Challenge feature, it does an excellent job of combining smooth graphics and solid control to yield a great, gridiron title.
Mega Play Magazine
Acclaim has released yet another hit with Quarterback Club. This game is loaded with AI that will surely test your playing and coaching abilities. The players are too small though.

This is the best thing going for 32X if you like sports games so don't hesitate to pick this one up.
Here's your chance to do an Al Davis impersonation and make the NFL do whatever you want. If you already own the Genesis game, however, you don't need this 32X game.
It might come as something of a surprise to all of you, hearing such praise given to a Quarterback Club game. But although the franchise floundered pathetically in later years, it started off strong on 16-bit consoles. That said, whether or not it'll finally bump Madden off the queue during the football season is going to come down largely to personal preference. As a reviewer I can assure you that there's nothing grievously wrong with NFL Quarterback Club, and also that it has a few things going for it that the equivalent Madden games don't have. For those of who enjoyed the stock Genesis editions of this series, go for it. The 32X upgrade won't blow you away, but it's the definitive 16-bit port and can be had for a pittance. Those who grew up with Madden should probably just stick with what they know and love.
The Video Game Critic
The computer AI is lousy. You'll want to play a real person if you want any kind of challenge. The game is too offense-oriented - it's too easy to score. The spin and speed-burst running controls are just too effective. On the play-calling screen, you can't tell which plays are running and which are passing. Still, I like this game because of the nice graphics, variety of options, and fast gameplay. And don't forget to stick around after the end of the game to see the winning team dance in the middle of the field - it's hilarious!
