Front Page Sports: Football Pro '98 is, as the name suggests, a simulation of the popular American sport football. It features two main playing modes: In the simulation mode the player takes the seat of the team manager and deals with drafting, match lineups and tactics. During the carrier he can play several seasons and his players improve their abilities when they get more experienced or slow down when they grow older. Although the player still controls the football players on the field this mode is more reminiscent of a managerial simulation. In the action mode this managerial duties aren't important and the player can concentrate on the matches.
In comparison to its predecessor it features a new menu structure, player photos, match commentary by Howard Davis, more stadiums and new multiplayer functions over the internet.
