Summary: this games graphics,limited options,stupid plays,kindegardenly made,etc.(and i am not joking when i say,etc.)are so incredibaly, horrificly ,dreadful!!!dont waste time thinking about the low offer, go out and buy madden 2003,2004,because any maddens are worth it unlike any gamedays.the same customer who wrote a reiview on killswitch who is 13 for your cocern!!!SO DON'T BUY THIS SUCKY THING THEY CALL A GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Summary: This game is just terrible! remember madden 98? the graphics are just about the same. When they jump, it's hillarious! This game would look bad for Nintendo. it's about 4 years behind in everything. BUY MADDEN INSTEAD!! you can trust Ea sports, they know how to make 3d games.
Summary: For PS2, I would have expected the graphics to be better. They do not look as good as Madden's, dragging down the score. The gameplay is still here, and is still quite a bit of fun. The rock music and drum beats help move things along, but it has a few flaws that drag it down.
Summary: a must have for all gameday fans,but for the other people,don't look for any thing real,anyway what video game ain't real,some people brains are starting to work,its a video game.i like how all the coaches look the same which is a bad thing.
If Ever There Was A Game That Made Me Nauseous. . .
31 July 2001
Summary: . . . this is it! What a disappointment! This isn't even funny; this is absolutely the most pathetic display of a video game I've ever seen. Madden 94 for the Sega Genesis has better graphics! (Okay, maybe that's exaggerating-- but you get the point). The depth charts are completely out of whack; some defensive line players are playing linebackers positions-- some LBs playing DL positions, etc.
Summary: NFL Lameday (you heard me!) 2001 is the worst game you can possibly buy. 989 Studios should give everyone there "money" back. I don't think I would get this for free. Madden has better graphics, better controls, and it is alot funner. The load times are like the gunshot to the head. The only good quality of this ... is the player's talk. Sony needs better standards. If you want a football game, get Madden or go without.
Summary: Well I won't be as harsh as everyone else but this game is not worth forking over 50 bucks. I wouldn't even spend the money to rent this game. The game play totally stinks. I regret paying for this game but it was an impulse buy. The only way this game might be worth it is if you borrow it from some poor sap that regretfully bought it (like me). It has some good points like some of the tackles are actually pretty cool. But other than that not too many pros here.
Summary: one word: trash. This game is laughable.I'm a major football fan and when I finally got my Playstation 2 I drove over to blockbuster to rent both Madden 2001 and Gameday 2001 to see which was better. I arrive home and start playing Madden. Amazing game. Great graphics,gameplay,lots of options,etc. Then I start playing Gameday. Startup menu looks good,lots to chose from. I decide to start with an exibition game.
