Graphically, EA has done a superb job here, with the players faces and uniforms being portrayed very very well. They look way more realistic than last year's "we are space aliens who've come to earth and infiltrated your NFL players" looks. The coaches who hover about on the sidelines are the best looking of any football game to date. Heck even the snow looks nicer, it doesnt just fall, it blows in from the sides, as if it were really a blizzard out there. And yes, we finally have cheerleaders!!! Ea Sports' addressed concerns about last years ballplayers being all the same size, so this year, players are noticibly more slender, while still having that football player build. Like NCAA 2002, it reads the clock on your PS2, so if you're playing a game at night, it will start your game at night as well, or if you're playing at dusk, with the sun going down, you may start the game with the sun up, but by the time the game is over, it'll be dark. Little touches like this help to add realism to the game, theyre all over the place and it shows.
Soundwise, its what you'd expect from a great title like this. A snazzy new opening kicks off most games, followed by player intros, at least from the home team. John Madden and Pat Summerall are back and Madden is as witty as ever, "he put too much mustard on that one!". Adding to the humorous reparte is Leslie Visser, with a few bits and pieces thrown in, proving that football announcing isnt just a male oriented sport.Read more ›
The graphics are phenomenal, and replays even feature the spiffy "matrix" camera effect (where the camera seems to pan around the play, in a circular motion...or like the Jamal Lewis TD replays in the last Super Bowl). The customization and "challenge" features add an extra edge to the game. In addition to playing an ordinary schedule, you're given "challenges" to perform- like "Beat the Colts in the RCA Dome" or "Complete a pass to 5 different receivers". These allow you to collect points and build up "Madden Cards". (A feature that annoyed me at first, but I was converted). The customization of players was exceptional. I created a new player, not on the game's rosters,- Kevin Kasper. I was amazed when the announcers actually SPOKE his name... thought that was a neat touch. (Older version would just say "he throws to the RECEIVER", here they say "KASPER"). You can also change your team's uniforms for each game. For example, the Broncos have five uniforms: home, road, alternate home, home throwback, and away throwback. Plus, if your team plays a Thanksgiving game, the announcers say "Happy Thanksgiving, everybody..." Madden even chimes in, late in the game, talking about his six-legged turkey.Read more ›
