  1. The balance, polish, and attention to detail found in quality football titles such as "NFL 2K2" and "Madden 2002" is wholly missing from GameDay 2002.
  2. 40
    NFL GameDay is the Detroit Lions of the league.
  3. It’s packed full of glitches, bugs, and design flaws that brought us to new depths of aggravation. [Feb 2002, p.38]
  4. The title is barely playable in its current form, as each new game reveals a new bug or glitch in the rules, gameplay, or presentation.
  5. Oh, GameDay, you’re the worst game the PS2 has to offer. [Feb 2002, p.112]
  6. The players look horrible in comparison to Madden and NFL 2K2, and they move more sluggishly than Oprah after brunch. [Feb 2002, p.154]
  7. Rumor has it that GameDay 2002 is superior to GameDay 2001, but that's sort of like saying a bop on the head is better than a punch in the nose. I wouldn't pay for either of them.
  8. 20
    This game is so ugly that it looks like it’s been beaten like a red-headed stepchild that managed to hit every branch on the ugly tree.

    A pretty bad nfl game but MUCH could be improved on. Starting with the whole game itself.

    Doesn't stand a chance to competition.
