Conclusion: NFL 2K2 is definitely a game that sports fans need to be aware of. Even if you are die hard Madden or Fever fan, I strongly suggest that you play this game. What 2K2 lacks in graphics, it makes up for in with faster, hard hitting realistic game play that coincides with top notch commentary that I feel surpasses the great number of its competitors. If you are a person who needs realism as the number ingredient for a football game, it’s a no-brainer.
Conclusion: Sega needs to look at it's competition and take their best features, while tuning their gameplay and AI algorithms to make the onfield experience more related to your play than using magic player ratings.
