As in the trend of sports video games, the Genesis version outperforms it's SNES counterpart, but only by the absolute slimmest of margins.
The Genesis and SNES versions of Aikman are nearly carbon copies of each other. If you have a six-button controller, I'd recommend the Genesis version over the SNES cart due to it's faster gameplay and '94-'95 rule changes.
Troy Aikman NFL Football is loaded with superb options, special features, and excellent control, but all that doesn't add up to an excellent game. Poor sound and graphics turn an exciting experience in an average game.
Smaller than average characters, choppy graphics, but this game needed more time in training camp. Little buckaroos and budding gamers will have fun with this game, scoring at will is easy and there is no D when the computer defense takes the field. I'd definitely sit this one out.
Troy Aikman's Football is not an awful game, nor is it one that you shouldn't at least sample, but it doesn't compare in realism, fun or excitement to the pinnacle of Sega Genesis football games, the John Madden series.
In addition to the poor frame rate, there's quite a bit of breakup in the graphics. It's not unusual to see a player running around with no legs! You don't have much control over pass receptions, and there are an inordinate number of tipped passes. If you need a few extra yards, your best bet is to dive - these guys can leap 10-15 yards!! All the NFL teams are included, but only one actual player (guess who?). The audio is particularly dreadful. The crowd sounds like a weak faucet, and the unenthusiastic commentator sounds like he'd rather be somewhere else (like a Madden game maybe?). With so many other good football games for the Genesis, this really can't compete.
