Summary: There are so many reasons why this is the worst gameday in the entire series.1)the secondary gets destroyed by the passing game way too easily.2)wide receivers will sometimes drop wide open passes.3)everytime you call playaction,your quarterback will be eating grass.And 4)the defense hardly puts up any kind of effort to stop the offense.This game is so laughable,you might have more fun playing NFL QB club 2002 instead of this terrible pile of garbage.DO NOT BUY under any...
Summary: could be better. there are better football games out there. i collect football games. on the other hand. gameday has a strange charm, and some innovation. they are the first console video football game to feature "gang tackles". they were the first to introduce polygon players in gameday 98. they have made history and innovations in football gaming. as far as this game. the running game could be more fluid. the defensive backs could do better.
Summary: Gameday is so slow, it looks like the players are running in slow motion. It takes like 5 seconds to throw the ball and it looks like the QB is throwing a 2,000 pound boulder. This game has few cool features and if you like football and own a PS2/PS, choose EA Sport's Madden over this cheesy game.
Summary: I have played this game for two days, I don't have any problems with it. My db's cover fine, my receivers catch fine. I have not experienced the trouble these other gamers are stating. The graphics are great, the players actually vary in size and the physics of the game (i.e. a large player hitting a smaller player) seem to be as close as any football game I have played.
Summary: NFL Gameday 2002 has put the series back on track. The graphics are the best NFL Gameday has ever looked, and they are good competiton to NFL 2K2. The gameplay is great, and is still a lot of fun. All the flaws have been cleaned up, putting this game back in the prime. Why not 5 stars? It is not as good as the new Madden.
Summary: Up to this point I've been a fan of the GameDay series. I loved my GameDay 2000 for the regular Playstation. But the 2002 version for the Playstation 2 has two flaws that I came across. First, there's a bug in the game so that occassionally, when a team scores a touchdown, it says that the extra point (PAT) was missed even though the user never even had the chance to set up and kick the PAT. The second problem is that no one seems to be able to catch anything.
Another dud from 989! Are you the least bit surprised?

Summary: I'm not surprised, at all! I knew that 989 Studios was going to stiffarm the hardcore football gamer and run with his/her money! Since these people haven't yet figured out how to create a quality and marketable football video game, I am sure that their fate as a game development studio is imminent! DO NOT BUY THIS WEAK FOOTBALL GAME....get MADDEN 2002 (EA knows what they're doing, and they're doing all the right moves!).
Summary: If I could have given this game zero stars I would have. This is by far the worst football video game I have ever seen and played. Whoever said it was better then Madden needs to get help! DO NOT PURCHASE THIS GAME...I REPEAT DO NOT PURCHASE THIS GAME! Horrible game play, ok graphics(nowhere near the graphics that madden has), same stuff over and over. If you are going to buy a football game, get Madden...trust me!
This is a very entertaining and challenging game!!!

Summary: I don't know why everyone is putting this game down, this is a fun game. I own this game and it is good. I think it is fun. you have to press square to catch the ball when it reaches you or it will drop. Just like in real life. The graphics are awesome. They look like real life. The players look life like with their helmets and jerseys. The stadiums look real too. The weather conditions are good. The only thing about this game is that there is no practice mode.
