NFL Fever 2002 – Review

GameCritics.com
11 April 2003
  • Excerpt: For a fledgling console, the Xbox has no shortage of football titles. With Electronic Arts' Madden NFL 2002 and Sega's NFL2K2 bringing their own refined brand of gridiron action to the table, Microsoft's in-house project NFL Fever 2002 has been held to some pretty lofty expectations. Maybe we don't expect Microsoft to revolutionize video football, but as the Xbox is an up-and-coming system needing strong word of mouth, a solid, playable title is the least gamers can and...

  • Excerpt: Microsoft is not new to the football genre. In fact, NFL Fever 2002 is the sequel to NFL Fever 2000 on the PC. This series has always been average when compared to the Madden series from EA. However, Microsoft sought to transform this average game into a Super Bowl winner on the Xbox. The results may surprise you.

  • Excerpt: My first reaction when I popped this in the X-Box, was what’s the Deal with all the Squat players? What were they thinking by going with these player models? It’s a game I think I should like, but have no desire to play it and when I am playing I am usually hoping it will be over soon. Really not sure why, it’s not a bad game by any means. I will try to make some sense of this in my review.

  • Conclusion: NFL Fever 2002 came so close to being a good game. But like many of the also-rans, it failed primarily to the questionable secondary AI. There are some bright spots in the game. The graphics, running game, and CPU playcalling are all positives. However, the defensive side of the game keeps the game from star status.

  • Conclusion: increased. Beside the one two-player game of Madden 2002 I played with Mr. Nash, the last football that impressed me was Tecmo Bowl on the old NES. NF2 is light-years beyond Tecmo Bowl in terms of graphics, sound, available plays – but it didn’t change my overall opinion of football. It’s too slow! Too much stop and go, stop and stop. Instead there are bursts of action usually about five seconds in duration.

  • Excerpt: When NFL Fever 2000 made its debut on the PC, it quickly established itself as a strong player with a bright future. This rookie was loaded with potential and most critics agreed that Microsoft’s NFL Fever franchise was a stat tracker and a franchise mode away from being a serious contender. The following year, NFL Fever was put on the back burner, with only a roster update to speak of. The reason?

NFL Fever 2002 Review

GameSpot
9 November 2001
  • Excerpt: NFL Fever 2002 attempts to be a best-of-both-worlds football game that truly feels like a Madden football game but plays more like NFL 2K2. While this may sound like the game everyone was hoping for, actually playing a game that has a mix of simulation physics and overriding arcade control is really anticlimactic since it doesn't do quite as good of a job at either style of play.
