John Madden Football features the normal NFL teams, and also includes classic teams from football's past, as well as an all-Madden team consisting of the greatest players playing at the time of the game's release, and an all-star team consisting of the best players in football's history.[2]


In 1995, Atari Corporation struck a deal with Electronic Arts to bring select titles to the Atari Jaguar CD,[3] with John Madden Football among them but this version was never released due to the commercial and critical failure of the Atari Jaguar platform.[4][5]


Next Generation reviewed the game, rating it four stars out of five, stated that "This is simply the best arcade-style football game currently available."[2]
