  1. 2K1 looks very similar graphically to last year's version, but the much improved running game, new franchise mode, and the addition of online gaming set it worlds apart from the original.
  2. I am NOT a fan of football games! When a game makes you a rabid fanatic about something you otherwise are utterly indifferent to, it's doing SOMETHING right!
  3. 100
    Not only is this the first console game that allows you to go online and play against other people, it's also the best sports game I have ever played.
  4. While NFL 2K1's gameplay and presentation are stellar, it's the advent of network play that will really set the game apart from anything else on the market.
  5. Perhaps the most impressive aspect of the game's graphical engine is how seamlessly and tightly it works with the gameplay.
  6. Combine (its online feature) with improved gameplay, great graphics and superb sound, and this title is a must buy not only for sports fans but also for anyone who owns a Dreamcast.
  7. So vastly improved over its predecessor that it easily wrests away the title of "Best Football Videogame of All Time" and easily scores a direct hit.
  8. 100
    Never before in any other football game have I witnessed such natural and smart AI.
  9. Talk all you want about the mighty Playstation 2. I'm sorry, I can't hear you, I'm too busy whoopin some guy in Cleveland's rear end.
  10. While not perfect, it's enough to make me want to paint my face for every game.
  11. An improved running game, new player animations and--most importantly--online play, head the list of reasons why you must own this game!
  12. From its incredible multiplayer to its fantastic options and gameplay, this is the premier sports title for hardcore and casual gamers alike.
  13. 100
    With improvements made over the already incredible "NFL 2K," this year's NFL game on the Dreamcast is all a football fan could wish for.
  14. The game to own. It's the game your friends will stop by to play. It's the game that you can play against people even if you have no friends -- online.
  15. The vastly improved running game makes all the difference in the world, since now you can truly mount an offensive attack that consists of a true-to-life air-and-ground assault.
  16. This is in my opinion the best football game ever.
  17. This is one of the top 5 games graphically ever.
  18. Almost instantly did I realize that this wasn't a computer I was toying with, but a real live person! A person who goes for it on fourth down, when the computer would unflinchingly punt it.
  19. 100
    Not enough for you? If this isn't the ultimate football game, you need to suit up and play for real.
  20. 95
    If ever there was a must-own sports game on any console, NFL2K1 is that title. Unless you're some sort of fun-nazi, this game will rock your world.
  21. It looks so realistic that you’d swear that you’re watching a television broadcast—fake-breasted cheerleaders and all.
  22. If I could sum up my over 5000 word review in one word, it would be "Wow."
