In the German gaming magazine Total! (issue 01/1995), the SNES version was scored with a "2-" (converted 75%). The review spends most of the time complaining how EA dares to remove the league and play-off mode from the predecessor. In the next issue they corrected the score to a "1-" (converted 95%) because the two modes are included in the game. According to the magazine, the German distributor claimed they got the final version for the review when they asked before publishing the review. It seems they accidentally received an incomplete preview version instead of the review version.
