  1. Even with the game's wealth of gameplay modes and excellent sound, the developers' failure to provide analog support and to improve the game's frame rate really hampers the franchise.
  2. The 2000 version of March Madness helped the series take a giant step forward, and this 2001 version reinforces its status as one of the best hoops series on the PlayStation, college or otherwise.
  3. This isn't just an upgrade my friends, it's the real deal.
  4. Shows brief glimpses of that old EA excellence with its new dynasty mode, but sadly, the overall game slides weakly into the realm of substandard.
  5. While it has its share of shortcomings, March Madness 2001 packs enough variety and fun to make it the champion of Playstation basketball.
  6. 84
    The game pretty much features all of the options and features that made last year's game one of the most feature rich in the history of sports videogames and has simply added to it to make it even more robust and playable than ever before.
  7. Everything from shooting a free throw to running the lane works well in the game. There's really not much to complain about this year.
  8. Besides a few cosmetic changes, nothing appears to have changed from last year's game. People buying MM2K1 who own MM2K are probably being suckered into purchasing a $40 roster patch.
