NFL Sports Talk Football ’93 Starring Joe Montana

What better way to compliment Monday Night Football than with a review of a Genesis NFL game? I’ll tell you a better way: include a game actually worth playing. The Joe Montana series was notoriously hit and miss, and the ’93 installment appears to be one of the bigger misses. Among the problems cited are a clunky interface and poor AI. Hey, that actually doesn’t sound too far off from this year’s Madden! We kid about that last part, but the Montana part is still true.

BlueSky was at the top of its game with this edition, and even after so many years it’s still a joy to play.

Spider-Man: Web of Fire

Sega made good use of its Spider-Man license. With releases for every console of the era, the company fired off one last salvo of web fluid with 1996’s Web of Fire for the 32X. Despite the new hardware, ol’ web head’s last hurrah was more of a whimper than a bang. The problem with it is that it doesn’t set off your spider sense for mediocrity until after you’ve blown $150 for it on eBay. read our full review and stick with Spider-Man vs. the Kingpin for all your wall crawling needs.

Joe Montana II: Sports Talk Football

In 1991, Sega shocked Genesis owners with Joe Montana II: Sports Talk Football. Aside from changing the game’s vertical perspective to a horizontal one (an internal team had been working on one for the original, but it was scrapped in favor of EA’s vertical game), Sega also added play-by-play commentary. Though it might seem cheesy today, this was unheard for consoles at the time, and it marked an important step in bringing realism to sports games.
