All Game Guide (1998)
Overall, Madden 98 is the flagship sports game for the EA Sports Super Nintendo franchise. Realistic gameplay combined with unilateral control over rosters and a plethora of plays and teams make this football simulation difficult for any to top.
Nintendo Power Magazine (Nov, 1997)
With solid game play, a wide range of option and O.K. graphics, Madden NFL '98 is probably the last gasp for 16-bit football. For collectors or football fans who don't have a Madden game, don't delay. Oh, and Madden '98 is pretty much like last year's game.
The Video Game Critic (Aug 20, 2009)
Although the basic gameplay is unchanged, a very unwelcome new feature has been added: "hot and cold streaks". That's right, your favorite team might just suck for the simple reason that the game randomly determined them to be "cold". This was only the beginning of EA's tradition of incorporating unwanted "features" into its games in lieu of actual improvements (which are much harder to program). Madden had a good run on the SNES, but Madden 98 ends the series with a whimper.
