Summary: I have enjoyed playing this game alot. Excellent graphics, fun gameplay. It may not be the most realistic nfl game out there but it is alot of fun. I played nfl 2k on the dreamcast and found it very playable. This has the same level of playability with better graphics. It is well worth the money to buy. Unless you have Madden. Both games are good and I enjoyed playing them both, but you probobly do not need to buy both games.
Summary: This game has great graphics, that's for sure. And the controls are amazingly smooth , even though the players look huge onscreen. It is better than Madden 2002, though the game does not have any cheerleaders. It's pretty fun. But I have to comment, this game has a lot of things missing. No cheerleaders (see above), no anxious coach pacing around on the side lines, ect. And the commentary has too many repeated comments on the game.
Great game, but literally impossible on All-Pro mode.

Summary: Ok, for all you football gamers out there, NFL 2K2 has finally moved its way over to the PS2. I don't know about you, but that makes me very happy. I bought a PS2 on launch day, and picked-up Madden 2001 along with it. I really enjoyed Madden 2001, but I maybe played through 2 full seasons before I had to take the game out for good, and put it up on the shelf. When I found out that the NFL 2K2 series was moving over to PS2, I rejoiced.
Summary: OK We've all heard the arguments for the best football game ever. Is it Madden? Is it Fever? We'll I'm here to tell you folks, all the hodge podge should go in one ear and out the other. NFL 2K2 is the best football game on any platform today.I own one on PS2 and like many other people I had to decide between Madden 2002 and NFL 2K2. I ended up with 2K2 in a wierd twist of fate and fate couldn't have done any better. The game is amazing.
Summary: I own NFL Game Day and Madden 2002 and this game is the BEST. The graphics are incredible, they blow away the other two games. The announcers while not as dynamic as Madden or Simms they are very entertaining. The game is easier to understand and play. BUY IT!!
Summary: the Dreamcast NFL 2k1 i feel was a much better game than Madden 2001, however in comparing NFL 2k2 and Madden 2002, i would give the nod to Madden. NFL 2k2 is a good game built on the very solid 2k1 version; it updated the graphics this year to an already great looking game. IMHO the graphics are just nicer than Madden 2002 especially the facial close up. while Madden made great strides in their audio commentary, it pales in comparison to NFL 2k2's.
Summary: I am going to write a review of NFL2K2 but also compare it to MADDEN 2002 for those of you caught on the fence on which to buy. I'll point out what each game does better over the other: NFL2K2 Does better Over Madden 2002 : 1.Faster Gameplay : Just like the Real NFL. Make quick and correct decisions or eat the turf. Truly Realisitc to the Real game in this aspect. 2.Great Defensive Line play : it's like a minigame to sack the qb.
Summary: OF Madden, NFL 2k2, QB club, ESPN NFL Primetime which is the one to buy and play? Well, clearly the two contenders are Madden and NFL 2k2 for playstation but which one satisfies the average player will very much depend on personal gaming style and the subjective determination of what is real "virtual" football.
