John Madden Football '92, released as Pro Football in Japan, is a football video game. It features John Madden on the cover. Madden Football '92 is the sequel to John Madden Football. New aspects of this version include instant replay, two-player cooperative play, quarterback injuries, review and overturn pass interference calls, and more audibles. There are also new play modes, such as pre-season games, regular season games, playoffs, and sudden death. Quarter lengths have been adjusted in this version to be set at 5, 10, or 15 minutes. As in previous versions of the video game, there are no NFL or NFLPA licenses for authentic teams, player names, and stadia. Teams are organized by city name and colors.

MegaTech gave the game 95% and a Hyper Game Award, saying that "you'll enjoy it, even if you don't care much for the sport".[1] In October 1992, Mega placed the game at #1 in their Top Mega Drive Games of All Time.[2]

Legacy[edit]

John Madden Football '92 had one of the most popular in-jokes in a Madden game, the ambulance. Whenever a player on the field was injured, it would come speeding onto the field, indiscriminately running over any player that happened to be in its path. Fans have repeatedly called for the return of this humorous feature. Its last appearance was Madden NFL 2001.
