The industry's most enduringly popular football game returns to the N64 with this 2002 edition, once again bringing familiar gameplay and new features. As always, teams and rosters have been updated to match those of the most recent (2000-2001) NFL season and the game features commentary from perennial hosts John Madden and Pat Summerall, including some new, more player-specific content. In addition to the modes of play offered in earlier versions of Madden NFL, players can now buck up on the basics in a Training Mode or play through the intensity of the Two-Minute Drill. There are also the options of Tournament play and Custom Leagues, as well as the new Create-A-Team feature.
Through a special feature available only in the N64 and PlayStation versions of Madden NFL 2002, gamers can also access the "Madden Classic Mode," which emulates the old-fashioned graphics and play style of the Madden games in their 16-bit Sega Genesis heyday. Although the look and feel may elicit nostalgia, gamers will be able to play with the updated teams and rosters in this mode. Unlike their counterparts on newer systems, the N64 and PlayStation versions of Madden 2002 also feature the "Madden Meter," which is based on the emotional flow and the momentum of the game. In all, this PS version of Madden NFL 2002 is designed to offer something for all kinds of Madden fans, including classic, familiar gameplay and some new features that pay worthy respect to the history of the series. ~ T.J.
