Summary: I finally got around to getting a PS2. One of the first games I bought was GameDay 2004. I assumed it was a safe bet since I've always been a fan of GameDay and never cared for Madden. Boy, was I wrong! GameDay is horrible. There are so many problems I would swear it was a beta copy. Although the graphics are amazing (and still blow away Madden), the gameplay has gotten much worse. There is absolutely no defense (on either the player team or the CPU team).
Summary: Well, graphics and animation might be good if this was on an original Playstation, but on the PS2, they are pathetic. Not to mention the worst AI a football game has ever seen. The defense has no clue what is going on or how to react. Any football game on any system is better, so stay away from this one.
