If you're after the definitive American football simulator for your Master System, then get ready as this is the game for you.

A poor imitation of the real thing.

Mal im Ernst - wer braucht im Zeitalter der aktuellen Madden Simulationen noch einen Titel wie Joe Montana Football? Außer ein paar fanatischen Sammlern vermutlich niemand, von daher solltet ihr den Geldbeutel ausnahmsweise stecken lassen..

So yes, this is a considerable step down from the Genesis version. But considering the hardware limitations and the overall soundness of the football engine, Joe Montana on the Master System isn’t a bad little offering. The no-frills aesthetics and lack of game modes definitely hurts it, but it’s still a game you can break out for an hour or two and have a bit of fun.

Joe Montana won't win any awards for audio either, with its cringe-worthy crowd noise and tackles that sound more like flatulence. Did all of the players drive-thru Taco Bell on their way to the stadium? Finally, I really wish there was some type of half-time show. Joe Montana Football is no classic, but if you want to play football on your Sega Master System, this is clearly your best option.
This game tries to be something more than it is, but with a lack of good graphics, sound, or game play, it falls way short. Like most sports entries, this one works better as a two-player head-to-head because the computer simply stinks. My first play I beat it 93 to 21. No fun, no way.
