    Terrible running AI - guys fall down just touching a D player sometimes. WRs run out of bounds for no reason. QBs always underthrow deep balls so WRs have to run backwards to catch it - it bounces off the back of DBs repeatedly. Terrible AI. Pure suck.

  1. Great graphics, boring commentary, good sound effects, good gameplay with a few major problems in the game play and ability to run online leagues. I would only suggest this game if you plan to play the game online if you can overlook some of the stuff I mentioned.
  2. It has the eye-popping graphics of the PS2 version of "Madden 2001," but it uses a poor interface, has modest AI, and doesn't provide enough new features to differentiate it from last year's offering.
  3. This is probably the most beautiful display of 3-D graphics you will find in any sports game to date. This is of course if your PC has a lot under the hood, especially a good video card.
