  • Summary: #1 for a reason! Return to glory: Relive the golden days of 16-bit Madden gameplay in Madden Classic mode. Kick off the season with the newest NFL team: Take the field with all 32 NFL teams including the expansion Houston Texans. A game within a game: Run or defend an improved 2-Minute Drill, now featuring Head-To-Head Challenge. Bang-Boom-Pow: Perfect the X's and O's with the help of John Madden in Training mode. Expand

  1. A wonderful re-creation of the sport of football that controls well, looks good, and has enough packed in to keep you busy for a while. But most importantly, the game is just superfun.

    Unfortunately, the game shows not only its age, but also the console’s age and its considerable weaknesses.
  3. Madden NFL 2002 and "Madden NFL 2001" are basically the same games, with new rosters, new modes of play, and a new name.
  4. It’s too bad there’s no way to work on defense other than getting pummeled by the CPU game after game. [Oct 2001, p.154]
  5. If you're expecting Madden 2002 on the N64 to compare in any way, shape or form with the PlayStation 2 version, you're going to be sorely disappointed.

    I love this game, I play it non stop. It has great graphics for 64 and all new rosters. Anyone who doesn't like it has a problem.

    This game is a great game... The franchise mode is the best part of the game. The only problem is i have visited many websites and still have not found a cheat for this game. This game is a great N64 game and obviously cannot compare to the Xbox and PS2 versions, but has pretty good graphics and gameplay for being a 64 bit console. Please [let me know] if you know any cheats. Collapse

    Wel first of all I think this game is a really blast and if you buy it you can fell the power from your own home. And I think is exciting because you can pick over from all the teams in the NFL. Expand

    All the idiots who are comparing the graphics to the ps2, gamecube and xbox need to just shut their ignorant pie holes! OF COURSE the graphics aren't as good as the next gen systems, but they're plenty good enough to get the job done. Expand

    It's ok but it would be beter if it had graphics like ps2 and if you could break tackles better.

    Horrible graphics, not even close to being as good as the PS2 version!
