Being the first game of this popular football franchise, MADDEN '96 set the tone for all the other games in the series. You can take control of any of the 30 NFL teams, trade and sign players while staying under the salary cap, or even create your own player at any position in the Scouting Combine and see if he gets drafted. Pat Summerall and John Madden provide the play-by-play announcing, adding more authenticity and helping put you right in the game. Advanced 3D-rendered graphics enable kneeling, one-handed catches, jumping, diving catches, and even left-handed quarterbacks. In other words, MADDEN '96 has it all.
