Summary: My little dude (age 7) has an old PS2 that he will not part with and wanted football games. He has all of the madden games up to 2012, but this one is his favorite of all football games. Great graphics as well.
Summary: The only thing I can fault about this game is the inability to challenge, but in the game I have never found a situation where the ref. is wrong. It's a great game, and the animations and graphics easily surpass those of Madden. A very good game especially for the price which is very cheap.
Summary: I bought NFL 2K3 in October 2003, and i think it is By Far better than Madden 2004. I had played Madden 2004 before, and it was ok, but one on one open field tackling was near impossible, and Some players seemed like they were covered in grease. Also Strategy actually makes a difference in this game, unlike many of its predeccesors.
Summary: I went out to buy some games and realized that NFL 2K3 was the real deal in graphics. I owned Madden 2002 and it was terrible graphic wise, i thought it was great until I saw the graphics for 2K3. But the announcing is just like Madden. I don't care what other reviewers say, this game's announcing is great, and then wham, after you play about 4 games, the announcers start using the same phrases over and over and over again.
Summary: You don't know how awesome this game is! The graphics looks so real you can't really tell the difference! There are lots of modes, Season, Franchise, Practice, Exhibition and more! The players names are always told and it seems like a live broadcast all the time! You also should see the replays, they even circle the players on the replays sometimes like on TV!
