Madden NFL 2001 User Reviews
Here's another long one from your pal, SOZF.
You might ask why I'm doing a review for '01 and not '02, or '03. Well, I'll tell you why. I don't have '02 or '03 I have '01. Also, the two aren't very different. Anyways, this game comes from the folks at EA Sports (it's in the game). And you'll find out more about it below.
This game has some pretty nice graphics. If you slow down stuff, you might see the occasional pass through and stuff. Not too bad. The faces look pretty good. This isn't like FFX F.M.V.s or anything, but it's still nice graphics.
Well, we've ...
Amazing graphics, real plays, wicked soundtrack, loads of players, teams and stats. Perfect in every department, except...The bad:
...Madden's commentary. Sure the game might be named after him, but come on, just listen to him, or don't as the case may be, some of the stuff he says is already obvious.Summary:
Amazing game altogether especially when you add in the Madden challenges and Madden cards, which make the gameplay even more fun. But as I already said Madden's commentary does leave a lot to be desired (he's great in real life but on the game he says things that are already obvious).I.e he says "the reciever dropped it there" about 5 seconds after the reciever has just dropped the ball. But apart from that the game is perfect in every way. I'm English and like a typical Englishman I didn't understand anything about American Football, but thanks to Madden I could explain most of the rule...
Game play is awesome (as always).The bad:
Still need more realistic crowd noise.Summary:
The Madden games are always fun to play. Great replay potential, at least until the next one comes out. Overall, I am satisfied with this product. The only thing I can see to improve, and this always seems to be a problem in Madden games, is the lame crowd noise. Cmon, lets record some actual crowd sounds and put them in the game. Better sounds would almost make this the ultimate football game.
Everything Except SoundThe bad:
This game is great, it features tons of game play, many modes, and great graphics.
Buy this game!
WHOOO-HOO!This football game has great graphics,great gameplay,great everything!The bad:
What?You're asking me for the downside?Uhm...not really,no.Hey,did you see that Sixers/Lakers game the other night?Summary:
UNE-DAH-BAAAAH!Perfection!Beauty!People getting shoved head first into astro-turf!I'm telling you,when I first played this game,in real-life,I fell out of my chair with the first tackle.I thought I was REALLY being tackled!Oh my god!Read "The Good",above.That pretty much sums it up.Chose your teams,and go at it!Franchise mode kicks it.season mode kicks it.You get those funny little Madden cards that unlock special teams(Like the Mummies,the Monsters,the Sugarbuzz) that are really goofy looking and fun to play.Now,if we could just get John Madden to quit saying the obvious to us in the game,...
