MADDEN 98 / EA / Sega Genesis
Seriously, EA? This is literally the exact same game as Madden 97, just with the rosters updated and records for longest plays and such added. They didn't even bother to change the music or sound effects! I guess EA had just cashed out of the 16-bit games at this point with most of the market moving to the 64-bit systems. This port was farmed out to THQ and they apparently decided to play it very conservative and just not change much of anything at all.
If it comes down to a choice between this or Madden 97, I guess 98 is the one to go with simply for the improved record keeping and stat tracking, but otherwise it really doesn't matter and it gets a Meh rating for just being a lame cash-grab move.
