Product Description

Product Description

The Madden football series gets another first and 10 with Madden NFL 2001 on PlayStation2. Utilizing PS2's advanced hardware, the game renders ultrarealistic rushing, passing, blocks, and tackles. As the game progresses, you'll see the field collecting scars of some of the rougher tackles, and the players will show some wear of their own as well. With the Dual Shock 2's pressure-sensitive controls, you can control the type of tackle you make by how hard you hit the button. Along with the built-in AFC and NFC lineups, Madden NFL 2001 allows you to create your own player, choosing between 200 faces, a variety of hair styles and pads--even whether or not he wears a breathing strip on his nose!

5.0 out of 5 stars It really is THAT good November 9, 2000
At first I wasn't going to bother reviewing Madden2K1 for PS2 since everyone else has basically voiced the typical opinions. But, as someone who remembers as far back as Madden '92, I figured I would add some insight in terms of helpful hints on gameplay.
RUNNING: So unbelievably diverse. You have to know WHEN to run, and when NOT to run. You can't always do some cheap HB pitch to the outside, then outrun a host of chubby linebackers for a 20 yard gain. You have to keep the defense on their toes with a good mix of running and passing plays. Don't be afraid to run up the middle. It works just as well as an outside run, and often better. If you have a good fullback, don't be afraid to use him. Deflecting tackles is just as good as outrunning a defender to get yardage. Use the various peripheral moves like the stiff-arm and the hurdle to foil potential tacklers, because they do work. And keep in mind that a running back that bolts into the secondary often does so uncovered, so when 3 DBs are crowding Keyshawn, don't be surprised if Warrick Dunn is left alone for some easy yards. Use motion! If you are running outside, don't hesitate to put the fullback in motion to that side to obtain an early block, and feel free to do the same with receivers.
PASSING: Remember the success of a good short-passing game. Not every ball has to be a 30+ yard fly route. Especially if your QB isn't Joe Namath, you might have greater success picking apart a defense with comeback routes and sideline passes. The opposing pass defense is NOT infallible. Watch their eyes light up in horror as on 3rd and 1 you audible into a shotgun streak play and your 4 fastest receivers go sprinting into a depleted secondary. Remember the velocity of the pass. There is a time to lob and there is a time to bullet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Madden 2001 January 23, 2001
By Chyll57
After reading every review posted in the hopes of getting as much information as possible (not to mention trying to get some tips), I think I am ready to weigh in on the great Madden 2001 vs. NFL2K1 debate. First of all, as an owner of both games, systems and having played football myself, I am constantly struggling to strike the balance between superior graphices and realistic gameplay. Both of these titles have some of the critical elements and yet both are flawed as well. Let's go to the head-to-head matchups.
Graphics: Both titles offer some of the best in the genre, but I have some problems with Madden. The replay graphics are marvelous, but the actual graphics during gameplay are not superior to 2K1. 2K1's figures are larger and well defined, and Madden's figures from a distance look too short and stubby for certain positions (i.e. defensive back). Edge: even (Madden's up close shots make up for any other flaws).
Gameplay: 2K1 did well to improve on the ability to run the ball and jumpstart offensive play, but the fact that a scrambling QB can drop back 40 yards and still chuck a seventy-yarder with a man all over him takes away from the realism. With Madden you have to step up in the pocket, set your feet, and then decide whether to lob the ball or unleash a rocket. You can run the ball but always be prepared to bounce to where the hole opens up and to hop over outstretched limbs and body parts. Defensively, 2K1 plays better pass defense with the buttons, but the better defensive linemen eat up QBs at a ridiculous rate. Madden's sack totals are more realistic and pressure on the QB can cause strange and realistic things to happen. Your best bet is to let the computer help your DBs and scheme to shut down the passing game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bone-crunching, concussion-inducing football. October 31, 2000
I have never seen a game attract the attention of forty-year-old men the way a demo of Madden 2001 on PS2 did at Best Buy the other day. Then again, that may be the only place they could see it in action, given the hardware shortage.
Graphically, the game is fantastic--though not perfect. Tackles, replays, cut scenes, and player animations all surpass what has come before (By light years on PS1, and by a significant margin on Dreamcast's NFL2K1, as well). The player detail is unmatched. On the other hand, huddle and sideline shots become repetitive quickly, and players can pass through one another during after-play cut scenes. Neither affects gameplay, however.
The gameplay is there in spades. The computer AI is strong enough to prevent the game from becoming too easy, but not so tenacious as to become discouraging for a novice (which, admittedly, I am). There are some minor control issues, where you don't feel you have one hundred percent control of your quarterback one hundred percent of the time, and occasionally you wonder if your offensive line was aware of the play that you called, but these epsiodes are rare.
I have mixed emotions about the sound. While the play-by-play is adequate, Madden's color commentary is repetitive to the point of being irksome. It is nice, however, to hear your name being called after setting up your virtural doppelganger in the create-a-player mode (I guess it helps to have a common last name).
The good news is that Madden 2001 is a showcase title for the PS2, in spite of its very minor shortcomings. The better news is that Madden 2002 could conceivably improve on this game in every aspect, adding online play, improved commentary, and fixing the rare graphical glitch. In the meatime, I'm keeping an eye out for Dennis Miller Football--(Insert Vague Metaphor Here).
