Product Description

Product Description

The players may look pint-sized, but you'll still find all the hard-hitting action of the NFL in MADDEN NFL 2000. Choose from all 31 of the NFL teams and hit the field for an Exhibition Match-up or a Sudden Death game, where the team that scores first wins. If you are looking for a challenge, fight your way through the Season to make the Playoffs and maybe even the Super Bowl. Or you can just skip the Season and head straight to the Playoffs. All of the elements of pro football are here: substitutions, reverse plays, audibles, diving catches, and so much more. With over 150 different offensive and defensive plays, the playing style of each team can be recreated. Put on a helmet and get ready for some football with MADDEN NFL 2000.

Review

Madden 2000 is the latest in the long and seemingly never-ending list of sports games that EA churns out for every platform in existence (well, except the Dreamcast). In its latest effort for the Game Boy Color, the wizards at THQ and Tiertex have managed to squeeze almost all the cool features into the Game Boy. It's quite a feat, really. As you can on the home systems, you can choose from any of the current NFL teams and set up your own seasons, playoffs, exhibition games, and even sudden-death matches, where the first team to score wins. The depth and attention to detail that have been present in many of the previous Madden titles are here as well: You can call audibles, substitute players, fake field goals, reverse plays, and make onside kicks. Controlling the players is a snap: The two buttons handle everything from choosing receivers to making diving catches, and it's all done intuitively. You can also adjust game time and weather - a sudden-death match in the cold winter snow is good for a laugh. The Madden AI is no slouch either. Although I made almost all of my passing plays on the first try, the CPU will punish you if you fall asleep on the bench, and the computer mixes up its plays quite well (though the Buffalo Bills seemed to always choke on third down). The graphics are clear and crisp, and the game briefly pauses whenever the ball is thrown so that you can easily find the ball on the screen and respond accordingly. Players who score touchdowns even do a brief celebratory dance. Fans of portable gaming who generally dislike sports titles should give Madden 2000 a try: The control is dead-on, the graphics are clean, and there are enough options to keep you tossing the pigskin around for a long time.--Doug Trueman--Copyright © 1998 GameSpot Inc.

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitely a well-made game November 24, 1999
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Even though I only rented this game for 5 days from a local rental place, that was more than enough time to see that this was definitely a good game. I liked mainly everything about it, from the easy gameplay to the good graphics. There were only a couple of things that made me hold off on giving this game the full 5 star rating. First, the music, although OK, became redundant to the point that I turned it off and left it there. Second, even though there is a Sudden Death option (first team to score wins), if you want to play in the Exhibition, Season, or Playoff modes, you're going to be playing for a while. The minimum time for one of these games is 20 minutes (4 quarters of 5 minutes each), and that does not count the time that you spend choosing your plays. I wouldn't mind this as much if there was some sort of way to save mid-game, and come back and finish it up later. There is a password feature that lets you continue your current season or playoff run, but no way to save in the middle of the game. Other than those two things, I absolutely loved the game, and I would recommend it to others.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good Football Fix December 8, 1999
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I purchased Madden 2000 before the Thanksgiving holiday as I knew that traveling would get quite monotenous. At first getting used to the running plays was difficult but with practice running became the cornerstone of my offense. Passing takes a bit getting used to as well but with a passing window format you can quickly see who is downfield ready to catch the perfect pass from QB Steve McNair of the Titans. Yes, I said the Titans. The new expansion teams are included and add to the excitement of the game. That is, the teams you are playing against are the teams you are watching on Sunday, Monday, and in some cases Thursday. One improvement I feel that could be made is in the format of plays. While each play is drawn out and is easily understandable, I find that moving from one to another is a little confusing at first. The first time you are making a final drive in the last 20 seconds of the game is where you'll ask, how do I stop the clock.....how do I kneel....time out. This is where you will find yourself fumbling with button after button. After a while you get the hang of it but it does take some time. Madden 2000 is exciting and helps you get through a week without a Thursday game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Madden is a great game for the Color GameBoy January 6, 2000
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
When I picked up Madden 2K for the Gameboy I was interested in seeing how EA/THQ can pull off the solid football game that is present on the PSX and PC.
This game plays surprisingly well considering the power of this little system. The playbook for offense and defense gives you a strong core set of plays. I was able to find most of my favorite plays that I'm accustomed to from Madden on the PSX. The only main difference that may shock some game players is the use of the old Genesis passing windows for pass plays. This is logical considering that there is only two buttons. I think an option for directional passing like in NFL Blitz would be cool. Also the players names are not present-instead the numbers are used. This may cause problems for people who do not follow NFL football closely.
The graphics in Madden 2000 are average. The game models are very limited due to having eleven players on each team but overall they moved quickly and played the way I'm accustomed to. The Gameplay reacted like other Madden versions and there seems to be different player ratings for speed and ability. Most of the player moves are included in the game as well (spin, turbo boost, hurdle and dive).
Overall I like Madden 2000 on the GameBoy. I have spent countless hours of enjoyment playing this game.
