NFL's Greatest: San Francisco vs. Dallas 1978-1993 (Mega CD / Sega CD review)

Developer: Park Place Productions
Publisher: Sega
Released: 1993

NFL's Greatest: San Francisco vs. Dallas 1978-1993 is a Full Motion Video (FMV) sports game that's exclusive to the console.

+ Fans of either team will get some entertainment from seeing familiar faces from the past and present.

+ Load times of each play are impressively fast and if you thrive in adopting a coaching role there's some fun to be had.

+ Opposing teams play is displayed on-screen once you've selected yours, which is a nice touch for knowledgeable fans.

- FMV quality is grainy and while the optional full screen is appreciated, the pixelation and artifacting make it an eye sore.

- Difficult to employ any real strategy and winning is seemingly reliant on as much luck as it is skillful play.

- Cheesy hair metal music does not suit the gameplay and the inclusion of sports lyrics makes things super cringey!

- Cheering SFX loop to the point of distraction and the crowd are far too rowdy throughout every single second.
