  1. Chris Berman and Tom Jackson, both stellar sportscasters, don’t display the showmanship that’s the ESPN vocal trademark. They sound as if they’re doing their jobs, but with the clipped and monotone delivery, it sounds as if they wish they were somewhere else.
  2. 70
    Plays a decent game of PS2 football, but it’s at least number three behind "Madden NFL 2002" and "NFL 2K2" this year—and that leaves little running room.
  3. Loads of potential. As for this year's game, it “bumbles and stumbles” out of the gate to a third-place finish behind Madden 2002 and NFL2K2.
  4. The problems with the passing game are major, including a lack of touch on the ball, receivers who stop to catch passes, and iffy collision detection in general. [Jan 2002, p.83]
  5. 58
    There are honestly a lot of things to like about this football game...[but] it just doesn't play enough like real football.
  6. The game does have a solid and innovative franchise mode, but given the available choices for football sims on the console, it is tough to recommend.
  7. ESPN NFL Primetime 2002 just barely is ready for Primetime.
