A complete surprise, this. World Cup '94 has come from nowhere and dazzled us with its brilliance. It's utterly playable, and a footy fans dream. There may be plenty of competition out there in footy genre, but this is up there with the best from any machine.
Entertainment Weekly
Of the recent slew of soccer games released to coincide with the World Cup, this one is tops. Not only does it feature the 24 teams that qualified for Cup play, you can actually hear the crowd singing. The real kicker: You can customize the action so that it's easier for little kids to run, shoot, and score.

By no means a bad game - it's all there, and you can set it up just how you want, but should have more solid gameplay and real international players names.

World Cup USA 94 est un jeu de foot intéressant, qui supporte la comparaison avec FIFA International Soccer.
Total! (Germany)
Zur guten Spielbarkeit und den nützlichen Optionen gesellen sich atmosphärische Soundeffekte sowie hübsche Grafik mit sauberem Scrolling und sehr gut animierten Sprites. Leider kommen die feinen Animationsphasen durch die Vogelperspektive nicht gar so gut zur Geltung wie bei „FIFA International Soccer“. Dafür spielt sich World Cup USA 94 aber deutlich besser und kämpft somit ganz sicher um den Titel der Fußball-Simulations-Weltmeisterschaft. Wer noch kein Game rund um den Ball und 22 Kicker sein eigen nennt, darf hier getrost zuschlagen. Im Abseits steht man mit U.S. Golds Game ganz sicher nicht...
Game Players
This is packed with options and tries to adapt itself to a variety of skill levels. The most important part of the game - the actual gameplay - unfortunately takes a back seat to bells and whistles.
GamePro (US)
If you love soccer strategy and don't mind the too-cute mascot and the cartoony graphics, you'll really run with the detailed options in World Cup USA '94. If you're not a soccer fan, though, the unrealistic graphics will probably trip you up.

Fotbolls-VM:s officiella fotbollsspel som blev ett mycket bra försök men som slutade med ett ribbskott.
