Summary: Well, I just want to say that this games truly rocks! I love the graphics, the animations, sound bytes, season and franchise mode and the hype of going thru a season/play-offs and going all the way against the computer in all-madden mode. As a matter of fact I just lead my San Fransico 49'ers to a "Super Bowl win in year 1 in franchise mode against the Indianapolis Colts on Chirstmas eve 2003. (final score 24-21)I am getting ready to shape my roster to start year 2.
Summary: I played this game on Playstaion and i was disappointed with the fact that the Left-footed kickers such as Joe Nedney from the titans was Right-footed. That has bugged me for the longest time. If you want to make a realistic game, make the players realistic liek having Left-Footed kickers. Well, I played this game on PS2 and I was blown away. The different camera angles, The auto-zoom, the players names are readable on their backs. This game just is amazing.
Summary: I think that this is the greatest football game ever. I have madden 2003, nfl 2k3, and I had nfl 2k2 and I believe that this is better then all of them. I love the player introductions and what happened to them on 2003 it is dull. It has pretty much the same gameplay and graphics, but is a lot more fun. If you just want graphics go with 2k2 or 2k3 if you want gameplay definitely go with madden 2002, and it also has a great franchise mode.
Summary: This is without a doubt the best Football game out this year. EA has really improve the game play spiced up the graphics, and generally kicked...on this game. If you want "the game to own" this is it.
Summary: i don't actually own this game but i've played my buddy's copy enough to know the good and bad. let's start with the bad: the running game. it kinda sux. unless you're a great team against a really weak team, or you juice up the run block and running back ability settings, don't expect too many yards. there's also a little slowdown here and there. i also think they could've done a better job on the players, especially the qb's, they all look the same.
Summary: I love this game. It's ultra-realistic (most of the time) and can teach you how to play football correctly. I like to see and hear Madden's suggestions before I pick a play on offense for curiosity's sake. I love the franchise mode, selection of plays (hit left and right buttons on some formations for even MORE plays!...WOW!). -- CONS: The game cheats. Not just on All-Madden mode, either.

Summary: With only a few slight problems, this is a very good game. Let's start off with the good... -Madden Cards: These rock. I admit I felt the best NFL game was the NFL 2k series, until I played and used Madden Cards. The opportunity to use historic teams and players is a great idea! It adds a different element to the game which I enjoy. -NFL re-alignment: I really liked the fact that they included the new alignment for the 2002 season and beyond.
Summary: This game is so sweet. You can get madden cards and use them to access secret teams, stadiums, and historic players such as Dan Marino. You can even create a team and start a franchise. You can control this team for up to 30 years. The graphics are great, as most have come to expect from the Madden series. You can even create your own coach!
Summary: Quick List of Reasons to Buy this Game: 1. Graphics: The graphics are better than any other NFL video game. 2. Training Mode: John Madden teaches you the plays! How great is that? 3. Create-a-Team: With over 50 logos, you can create any team with nearly any name you want. You say you don't live in an NFL city? Not to worry. In Madden 2002, your city can be a contender for the Super Bowl! That's awesome. 4.
Summary: I'm not a big fan of football, indeed I only have watched a few superbowls on tv. My friends convinced me to buy this game and so I did. In the beginning, I couldn't understand the purpose of the different types of formations so my friends had a wild time beating my ass off with 0-45 scores. I was frustrated but after playing the Training mode I found this game so much more fun.
