Officially licensed by the NFL, the Topps CybrCard 1996 Series is a collection of CD-ROMs featuring the best 28 players from the 1995 NFL season. This virtual "trading card" program offers detailed insights into many aspects of the season, including complete player statistics (season and career), full-motion video action and sound clips from NFL Films, animated play book diagrams, play analyses, scouting information and NFL trivia.
Each CD has five major sections dedicated to the particular star being profiled: Film Room, Statistician's Office, Head Coach's Office, Scouting Department, and Photo Lab. The Film Room contains 1995 season highlights (multiple camera angles) for the player from his rookie year to the present and "helmet-miked" sound bites. In addition to career and seasonal statistics, the stat room allows you to build charts depicting category leaders using nearly every conceivable statistic tracked by the NFL and offers a rundown of every play in 1995 in which the player took part.
Visit the chalkboard in the Coach's Room, follow plays frame-by-frame and analyze their effectiveness. The Scouting Department offers an opportunity to create thousands of combinations of statistics, projecting how the player would likely perform in any game situation, viewable from every on-field perspective. Lastly, you can create and printout football trading cards based on player statistics using the options available in the Photo -- you can even add your own comments to the back of the card.
Other features include a Public Relations Section, and Locker Room that contains player, coach, source material and NFL official quotes as well as a selection of Topps Company cards, a Press Archives Room with significant press releases, and stories of interest about the player and a Reception Area for help. The series is designed for use on both PC and Macintosh platforms and supports a mouse point-and-click interface. ~ Michael L. House, All Game Guide
