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.
Summary: This game is terrible. The animations, the presentation, and the AI are all lousy. Defensive Backs skate backwards and stand totally still in zones. They don't react to anything the offense is doing. The animations pale in comparison to Madden. Sony should have never released this game, it is awful. Sony's football games have been going downhill the last couple years, and this is rock bottom. ....
Summary: I rented this piece of junk yesterday. I expected it to be a good game because '98,'99,'2000, were so good. It wasn't, the graphics are terrible and the game play is a little better than horrible.
Summary: I'm a HUGE fan of the past gamedays and on the first defensive play of the game I hit them for a 2 yard loss and it said my players name from the other team(ie Jevon Kerse from Pittsburg). This title was rushed to market WAY to soon and should be avoided. Hopefully they'll get it right next year.

Summary: Let me give you the quick low down. This game is a waste of money. I actually got mine back and bought Madden 2001 instead. I didn't realize how bad it was until I played Madden. 989 really screwed this one up in an effort to rush deliver this game to compete with Madden 2001. Your receivers will run back to the huddle while you are passing down the field on a Hail Mary.
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: . . . 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.
