Official Description (Ad Blurb)


The best-selling football game on CD-ROM now sports modem and network play, allowing you to challenge friends head-to-head in a gridiron battle.

Whether you're calling plays, blitzing the quarterback or throwing a long bomb, the competition will be fierce but an on-line victory is just a game away.

With individual player Artificial Intelligence and motion-captured movements, no other football sim is as genuine or comprehensive.

Every pass, every run, every bone-shattering tackle looks, moves and feels authentic.

From the first round of the draft to the final seconds of Super Bowl™ Sunday, Football Pro puts you on the field.

Stereo Sound: The roar of the crowd, the crunch of the helmets, the grunts of the linemen are all featured in stereo Direct Sound.

League Play: Create custom leagues ranging from 8 to 30 teams.

Football Goes On-Line: New modem and network capabilities allow you to play against friends around the globe.

Play Editor Easier Than Ever: If the 10,000 plays included aren't enough for you, quickly design your own winning play with the new Play Wizard.

Incredible Accuracy: Play with all 30 NFL teams in a physics-based 3-D environment, including all current NFL rules, stats and players.

Unique Career Play Option: The only football sim to offer career play. Watch players mature, get injured, improve their skills and maybe even make it into the Hall of Fame.

Choose Your Camera Angle: The exclusive Camera Angle Management System (CAMS™) lets you watch the action from any place on or off the field, with blimp version and instant replays too!
