John Madden Football II is a football video game released for IBM PC and compatibles in 1991. It serves as the sequel to the original John Madden Football PC game and was released a year after the Genesis version of the same title. This edition had updates such as larger playbooks and more insight from John Madden.

Description[edit]

John Madden Football II comes with a game manual, two for the defense, and one for the offense. It did not use real NFL team or player names.

Reception[edit]

Computer Gaming World in 1992 wrote that despite a very sophisticated playbook, John Madden Football II "has produced a state-of-the-art product — assuming that the year is 1989". The reviewer stated that while players would quickly turn the sound off, "the graphics are even worse!", and criticized the inability to play an entire season and flawed defensive plays and coverage. He recommended Konami's NFL over Madden.[1]
