  1. While not in the same league as the "Madden" series or "NFL 2K3," Sony's latest PlayStation 2 football title is fun and accessible.
  2. 60
    Matches up decently to last year's Madden and Sega offerings, but those games are doubtlessly improved this year.
  3. If this were an actual NFL season, Madden 2003’s record would be 14-2, NFL 2K3 would be 13-3, and GameDay 2003 would squeak by into the virtual football playoffs as a wildcard with an 9-7 record.
  4. A perfect example of a game that doesn't have any serious problems but doesn't do anything to really set itself apart, making it difficult to recommend because there are better alternatives available.
  5. Until 989 finds their niche and polishes the basics, they will always be underdogs on the virtual football field.
  6. 70
    Faster, better looking, and multiplayer friendly (thank you online play), the developers are back on track with its philosophy of "real football"...[but] the Madden and 2K series are still safely on top.
  7. A huge advancement over last year’s poor efforts...probably the best GameDay to date, but it is still not enough to match the polish and quality of "NFL 2K3" or Madden.

    GameDay has earned my respect, but "Madden" has earned my $50. [Oct 2002, p.148]

    No longer an utter mess, but it still isn't in the same league as the top PS2 football games. [Oct 2002, p.30]
  10. Not even the usefulness of ‘hot routes’ and a lean (but lonely) online mode can keep this horse from being dead last on a three-way race.
  11. After playing GD 2003, I won't think of the series as a laughingstock anymore. The game has earned my respect, but it still has a while to go.
