    Perfect game, unfortunately... it's... not perfect. The glitches are understandable. A fully 3D rendered world, perfect in every detail with real physics is impossible. Players travel through other players, the ball bounces when it is about 6 inches away from hitting something, when a ball falls a player can pick it up without touching it and it zooms into their hand and it caught.

    It"s a good game great, graphics, but it is to hard to run and certain players are not rated as they should be.

    Not a big step up from Madden 2002, but the graphics are amazing and the controls are good.

    Classically great graphics, better than Madden 09 graphics for the wii. Gameplay is obviously great madden gameplay. A great classic GC game. Only thing that i didnt like was the music

  1. The blend of presentation, visuals, sound, animation and commentary combines to create a believable and hugely enjoyable experience.
  2. Marshall Faulk is the perfect cover spokesperson for this instalment as he embodies what 2003 is for Madden: steady, reliable, accurate, excellent, abnormally good… need I go on?

    The GameCube version seems to hamper players a little bit just because of the odd configuration of the controller, but everything else is smooth and silky. [Sept 2002, p.85]
