Excerpt: With Week 2 of the NFL season in the books, who could have predicted both the Rams and Steelers would still be seeking their first victory, while the lowly Panthers would be sitting pretty at 2-0?
Excerpt: I am very sad at how much of a mess NFL Fever 2003 on the original Xbox is. Audio kicks in and out. The game locks up randomly between screens. I have tried multiple discs and all of them have the exact same problems.
Conclusion: advantage that it had last year. So how does it stack up against its fierce Xbox football competition? Fever 2003 again is a good showing amongst the first-party contingent, but isn’t so hot when lined up against either of the two better Xbox choices, Madden 2003 and NFL 2K3.
Excerpt: I was very impressed with "NFL Fever 2002". While it's not an entirely fault-free offering (some of the AI didn't seem entirely right and elements of realism were questionable), last year's offering boasted smooth gameplay, excellent graphics and a solid overall presentation.
Summary: I love football, as a man I feel that it’s my birthright to plant my rear end on my sofa every Sunday and take in as much football as possible. But what about the 5 other days of the week where the sport is nowhere to be found?
Conclusion: Microsoft is a big company known for producing software. Football games are often flagship titles, so you'd expect a company to take pride in such a title. We know they have the ability to put out some stellar software titles, but Fever 2003 has most of the same flaws of Fever 2002 and the flaws...
Excerpt: Last year, Microsoft shocked the football community with NFL Fever 2002. While early on in development it appeared to be a disappointment, Microsoft released a very solid title. While some felt it wasn't as good as Madden or NFL 2K, I enjoyed many aspects of Fever.
Conclusion: NFL Fever 2003 picks up right where NFL Fever 2002 left off and ads a few new features that beef up the presentation and gameplay of the game over its predecessor. This year’s game is very similar to last year’s title with the addition of Xbox Live support, which is not yet functional.
Conclusion: Highlight des Spiels ist natürlich der Online-Modus. Nach wenigen Minuten findet man sich in einem Online-Stadion dieser Welt wieder und daddelt gegen Football-begeisterte aus der Xbox-Community.
