  1. It's Number One, baby! Hi, Mom!

    Madden takes the trophy again this year, with "GameDay" closing the gap by a little.
  3. This could very well be the final PS "Madden" and that's ok because it's the best!
  4. With the new modes of play, stronger AI, and wicked new animations, Madden 2001 is a definite keeper and the replayability factor is top notch.
  5. 94
    One will be hard pressed to find another football game, of the professional variety that will give the player such a profound playing experience as "Madden NFL 2001."
  6. It's arguably the most entertaining two-player sports game ever made.
  7. The most impressive interactive gridiron PlayStation sensations to date.
  8. Play a version of Madden where the Rams could actually win with Kurt Warner. [Feb 2003, p.97]

    Excellent commentary by Pat Summeral and John Madden coupled with some nice music in the menu system and good layer sounds make this game music to your ears.
  10. The animation sequences are nothing short of perfection, with pull-down tackles and wrap-around sacks utilizing many frames of action.
  11. When a football game's biggest problem involves the kicking game, you know you have a winner on your hands.
  12. Although the fundamental game is still outstanding, the lack of improvement and innovation in this year's edition is disappointing.
  13. Essentially, Madden 2001 is just another upgrade, and it's becoming clear that EA has bigger plans than the PSX...namely, the PS2.
