  1. An outstanding game, with excellent gameplay and a deep set of features. Finally, the PS2 has a genuine A+ sports title.
  2. A thousand yards beyond any other college football game.
  3. This game can suck you in and never let you out - and you may not want to come out. ...this is football at its best.
  4. Offering a compelling mix of solid graphics and college-specific gameplay, along with the best dynasty mode to date -- NCAA Football 2002 is without competition.
  5. 88
    Light years ahead of "GameBreaker 2001," and, for all its faults, is still a game that most PS2 owners -- myself included -- will thoroughly enjoy.
  6. Certain gameplay issues aside, as with its NFL counterpart, NCAA Football 2002 is oozing with a variety of features and gameplay options.
  7. 80
    It's one of the best sports games on the PS2, and it's definitely the best college game around.

    Most college football games are fun, but the graphics are usually not there. Well this is a huge exception!

    I bought a PS2 just to play this game, and it was definitely worth it.

    An amazing game. My friend and I bought it the day it came out and haven't put it down yet. Can't wait for 2003!

    "The Coach" Lee Corso has to be proud to be a part of this game. Hometowns for recruits are the icing on the cake! Who researches this stuff?

    After playing every football game since "1st & 10" in the early 80's, Madden 2002 for PS2 is by far the best football game ever. A must-have.
