  1. Overall, Madden 2002 is a better game. However, NFL QBC ’02 is a fine game, and offers a different angle on football...makes a strong argument to own more than one football game.
  2. Yes, the QB Challenge Mode is back, and quite frankly, it’s still a blast to play. But for this reviewer, with drab graphics, poor animation, an unforgivable audio package, and several game play and AI issues once again rearing their ugly heads, this game is a hurtin’ turkey for sure.

    The computer AI is the game's weakest point. Although the offensive play calling is pretty good and kept me on my toes defensively, the AI seems to have a tough time on the defensive side of the ball.
  4. Nintendo Power
    QB Club has shoddy graphics, iffy play control and a tiny list of options and modes. [Feb 2002, p.151]
  5. Aside from the visual problems, the game also suffers from weak artificial intelligence, which makes playing the single-player game for any real length of time pretty unexciting.
  6. The sluggish controls could have been overlooked if the game was fun, but NFL QB Club 2002 just isn't that exciting.
  7. 54
    The experience just feels very unpolished, lacking, and almost outdated...Control is sluggish, AI unrefined, and the technolgy bringing it all together sloppy.
  8. Still not the contender that it should be, but there is hope - and the QB Challenge is still fun to play.
  9. Electronic Gaming Monthly
    When it comes to graphics, it still almost looks like an N64 game…It’s worth renting QB Club 2002 just to play these mini-games. [Mar 2002, p.141]
  10. 39
    Like an old, wretched, but enthusiastic quarterback that's become painful to watch after too many seasons of failure, expect to QBC come back for one more season.
