GameFan Magazine (Dec, 1994)
Madden fans will not be disappointed with the '95 game. It has all of the features Madden players have been asking for and is truly a superior product. Taking into account the strength of the NFL game and the improvements in the game's engine, while also looking at the game's offensive imbalances, Madden '95 scores in the same range as Walsh '95 and Sega's College Football.

Game Players (Feb, 1995)
While SNES owners get a few extras when they buy Madden NFL '95, Genesis owners shouldn't despair. Apart from the slightly less impressive graphics and sound there is little else about the Genesis version that has a negative effect on the excitement level.

The Video Game Critic (Jan 04, 2000)
This was the first Madden game to be endorsed by both the NFL and the NFL Players Association. The graphics look very realistic - the players are properly proportioned without the black outlines, and the animation is improved dramatically. But the biggest innovation is the elimination of the passing windows! Now the receivers are each assigned a button, just like the modern football video games. New moves include straight-arms and high steps. This was the first Madden which let you execute two-point conversions. The sound is crystal clear, and the game moves along at a brisk pace. My friend Eric and I actually jumped when the referee shot a gun (!?!) signaling the end of a quarter. This is truly a great football game!

The improvement in the Genesis graphics over last year is much more striking; the players now look part of the game instead of sprites pasted on a background. Both games include detailed new animations such as stiff-arms, high-stepping and on the Genesis there's even one-handed catches.

GamePro (US) (Jan, 1995)
The two biggest complaints about Madden games usually focus on the limited plays and the weak computer competition. EA Sports solves both problems in Madden NFL '95 for the Genesis, earning it a place among the best football simulations ever.

Play Time (Nov, 1994)
Digitalisierte Figuren, aktualisierte Defensiv- und Special Team-Taktiken, Originalnamen und die neuen NFL-Regeln sind 1995 die wichtigsten Neuerungen. Geblieben ist die perfekte Spielbarkeit, so daß sich das Update erneut ein klein wenig höher plazieren kann.

Video Games (Dec, 1994)
Besser kann man ein Football-Spiel nicht machen - so hieß es schon vor einem Jahr. Aber EA findet immer noch verbesserungsdürftige Elemente, die allerdings erst auf dem zweiten Blick sichtbar werden. Bestimmte Spielzüge (z.B. QB-Sacks), die auf den 94er Versionen fast 99%ig geklappt hatten, funktionieren nunmehr nur selten. Auch die Audibles, mit dem der Gegner die Stellung während eines Spielzuges anpaßt, kommen häufiger zum Einsatz! Aha! Der Computer hat dazugelernt! Dadurch kommen unter anderem Spielergebnisse zustande, die auch wirklich der Realität entsprechen (also, keine 62 zu 14-Siege mehr - snief ...). Somit steht fest: Hartgesottene Freaks werden vollauf ihre Kosten kommen, denn Madden ‘95 ist besser als das beste Football-Spiel aller Zeiten (grins).

Mega Fun (Nov, 1994)
Die wahren Football-Fans werden's kaum vermeiden können, 130 DM sind fällig, alleine schon der Original-Spielernamen wegen, Einsteiger werden sich ebenfalls diese, weil beste, Version zulegen. Durchschnittszocker dagegen, die schon ein Madden-Modul Ihr eigen nennen, werden auch weiterhin mit den Vorgängern bestens leben können.

I've been dedicated fan of the Madden series. This year's version has my vote! New animations of players are welcome, as are the new plays that Madden has designed. Madden NFL '95 has many more features and options that you will enjoy like the specific injuries that happen on the field. Another great upgrade for all Madden fans!

Score (Jan, 1995)
Hra Madden NFL 95 je výborná. Dá se říci, že po všech stránkách. Nejen pokud jde o námět - jde vlastně o komplexní zpracování celé National Football League, se všemi jejími atributy, ale i po grafické a zvukové stránce. Již od úvodních titulků a úvodního menu je vše velmi dobře graficky propracováno. Při úvodním menu se vám na pozadí pohybují malá loga NFL a je zde vyobrazen velký stadion těsně před zápasem. Vlastní hra je pak celá v 3D-grafice. Hráči jsou zcela plynule animováni, pohybují se v několika různých polohách. Jejich postavy jsou výborně vykresleny, takže nejde pouze o stejné bezpohlavní panáčky pobíhající po trávě, ale o opravdové hráče amerického fotbalu se vším všudy. [...] Je nabíledni, že podobnou trpělivost jako grafice věnovali programátoři Electronic Arts i hudbě a zvukům. Hudba v této hře je dynamická, nijak neruší a příjemně podbarvuje hru. Zvuky jsou taktéž na velmi vysoké úrovni. Od počátku až do konce.

High Score (Feb, 1995)
Ett bra spel har blivit bättre, men tyvärr inte så bra att det kan bli toppbetyg. För det hade det behövts lite bättre inställningsfunktioner för säsongsspelet. Actionfaktorn är dock hög så räkna med många timmar framför tv:n.

The computer is not a great opponent as usual though. Especially if you have played your way through this videogame series which began with John Madden Football in 1990. The computer opponents may be getting better but so are you. Nevertheless, Madden NFL 95 is a great game that football fans and even non-football fans will find very enjoyable.

Power Unlimited (Feb, 1995)
Madden '95 ziet er zeker niet slecht uit hoewel je er een beetje van in de war raakt, zijn de mogelijkheden zeer uitgebreid. Met name de mogelijkheid om van tevoren allerlei strategische patronen (plays) in te stellen, zal je even tijd kosten. Binnen de sportspelletjes is American Football een buitenbeentje maar dat is na het zoveelste voetbalspel misschien juist wel aardig.

Sega-16.com (Dec 20, 2010)
Sure, the old games were way too easy, but they were so much more fun to play with other people that its ridiculous. Even with four players via the EA four-way adapter, the multi-player experience just doesn't compare at all to the arcade style of gameplay in Madden '93 or '94. Overall, the steps forward with the features give Madden '95 more single-player replay value than the previous games, but the steps backwards with the gameplay and controls really take the fun out of the game. Madden NFL '95 introduced a few things to the series that we take for granted these days in our nearly flawlessly simulated game, and for that it deserves respect. If you're only a casual retro gamer, looking for a Madden to pick up for your collection, I'd say keep looking. If you're a football nuthead like me, I'd say pick it up, and play a season with your favorite team. It's better than average 16-bit football and a decent game to be had for a great price.
