    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.

    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. This is one of the top 5 games graphically ever.

    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.
  6. 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.

    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.

    Where did this idea that "sports game can't be considered legitimately good" come from? The amount of prejudice towards this game isWhere did this idea that "sports game can't be considered legitimately good" come from? The amount of prejudice towards this game is ridiculous. The critics loved it. Don't get your shorts in a knot just because they happened to love a sports game. Can their opinions not always reflect the opinions of the general gaming population? Yes, but you should play the game before determining for yourself if that's the case. And for the record, many people love sports games (which makes sense, given how many viewers tune in to watch various sports, it should come as no surprise that a few of them are also gamers that would like to play games that represent the sport and are fun). The people giving these prejudiced 0 scores do not represent the general populace at all. Expand

    This game still holds its own after four years, a testiment to its quality. The graphics are top-notch, even topping the Madden 2001 released This game still holds its own after four years, a testiment to its quality. The graphics are top-notch, even topping the Madden 2001 released at the same time for PC/PS2, and the gameplay is more polished and realistic than Visual Concepts first outing. For all the visual, sounds, and gameplay you get in this game, I have found it in stores for 75 cents! Overall, buy this NFL 2K game or the more recent 2K2 for Dreamcast: 2K is old news (literally), thanks to this gem. Expand
