    If it is balance and challenge you are after, you will have to try playing this game on its highest difficulty setting or, if that doesn't work, opt out for "Madden 2001" instead.
  2. "GameDay 2001," aside from its obvious roster updates and a few minor additions, is totally identical to last year's title, which was a really good game.

    If you're looking for a good General Manager mode or freewheeling gridiron action, you might want to give "GameDay 2001" a try-out.

    There are some newer animations, updated stats, a relatively good menu system and, it is slightly better than the previous year's efforts, but just barely.
  5. The real problem here is that unlike the competition, Sony hasn't really added anything of value for those who consistently purchase the series year after year.
  6. This is as close as GameDay ever got to Madden for the title of best Playstation football game ever.
  7. A little too complicated for its own good.
  8. "GameDay 2001's" crime is, plainly and simply, that it's not "Madden."

    The AI even seems capable of adapting to a gamer's tendencies; a play that worked great in one situation may not work so well if used in the same situation a second time.
  10. For me, I will stick with "Madden." "Gameday 2001" is still stuck in training camp.
