Madden NFL 2002 Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: This years Madden is a good outing for their first try on the Xbox. The visuals, although not up to the Xbox’s standards are good. The gameplay is only hindered by the button placement on the Xbox controller and that is not EA’s fault. After trying all the modes and playing through the game on both season and franchise I must say that this is a topnotch football game and should be bought.

  • Excerpt: The John Madden NFL franchise has come a long way in a relatively short time. The first iteration of the much-loved pigskin series hit the Sega Genesis in 1990 with a paltry 16 teams, no NFL or players license and three very basic modes of play (Season, Playoff and Sudden Death). Yet, despite the severe lack of features, its gameplay was light years ahead of anything that had come before it.

The Armchair Empire

  • Conclusion: Madden 2001 on the PS2 last year, Madden again had a right to claim superiority over its direct counterparts. Was the 2001 rebound a fluke? Or does Madden 2002 continue the franchise's resurgence? The overall goodness of Madden 2002 on the XBox verifies that the 2001 version indeed has given rise to the return of Madden to top-flight gridiron video gaming greatness. That's not to say that there aren't some deficits in Madden 2002 either.

Madden 2002

Sports Gaming Network

  • Conclusion: The back of the game case proclaims this game is "#1 for a reason." Well, this year I think they can certainly lay claim to that title. The package touts the enhanced defensive pass coverage. Usually publishers put buzzwords like this on packages to fool the consumer into thinking they are getting something new when in fact the same old garbage is recycled year after year.

Madden NFL 2002

Active Network
26 April 2004
  • Summary: "The season/franchise games are played out over the 16-game season. These are far more involved than the exhibition games, from the main season menu you can decide what basic rules you want to go with" "Madden 2002 is a gorgeous game, there is so much detail inside that it is hard to pick up all of the little details that crop up during the game, and the real surprise is that the Xbox version is basically just a port over from the Playstation 2"
  • Pros: Great against friends, Great graphics, Smooth frame rate
  • Cons: Some Dodgy Controls, Crowd Sounds Suck, No LAN support
