    It’s basically a port of the PS2 version, but on the Xbox, its graphics are so much sharper and—despite the beating the Xbox controller seems to be taking—the joystick-dependent interface feels just right.
  2. I am referring to how much I think Microsoft's controller will feel more natural in your hand, due to the rough similarities between it and the DC's. [Mar 2002, p.85]
  3. And make no mistake – this AI is tough. Gone are the standard "money plays" of old. [Spring 2002, p.84]
  4. The graphics of NFL 2K2 are the only aspect of the game that lags behind just a bit.
  5. The audio is stunning. From the Dolby surround ambiance, to the incredible commentary, NFL 2k2 has the best sports audio around…period...Gameplay is fantastic.
  6. It's at once intuitive and deep, a bit exaggerated yet deceptively extensive in execution. [Mar 2002, p.47]

    One big issue I have with the game is that when I’m on defense on any level, ball carriers seem to be Teflon gods that have an amazing ability to repel 2 defenders gang tackling them.
