Product Description

Product Description

Football is war. Their season starts shortly after your Super Bowl Party ends. You can now join the march downfield with NFL GameDay 2001 for the PlayStation. Start in the Draft War Room, where you'll review your players' strengths and weaknesses on draft day. Use the game's training-camp mode to sharpen your skills and hit the playbooks. You can even create a new player in and watch his salary value rise (or fall) by how well you play.

Training and general management features are fun, but the real game is on the clock, right? Well, all 31 NFL teams are represented here in NFL GameDay 2001, including more than 1,500 players scaled to their actual weight, height, and body type. There are also 200 new motion-captured moves to this series--including shoves, group tackles, drag downs, and shoestring catches--taken from more than a dozen actual pros. NFL GameDay 2001 also gives you the freedom to play as any position on the team at the touch of a button. And, one of the coolest features yet, the game is compatible with NCAA Gamebreaker 2001, allowing you to draft seniors from that title via the separately sold memory card.

The GameDay series has been a mainstay on the PlayStation NFL football gaming scene since the system was launched way back in 1995. Since then, the game has grown and evolved while taking pigskin fans into the next level, so to speak. NFL GameDay 2001delivers a total NFL experience for football fans and would be a welcome addition to any library for a number of reasons.

The three main features of the series have been updated nicely. The artificial intelligence of the players has been tweaked, thankfully. The graphics have also been updated, making this game look and play like a probowl linebacker heading for the quarterback on Super Bowl Sunday. Proportioned polygon players along with authentic stadiums, visible wear and tear on the field, and new player celebrations all add up to a touchdown in the graphics department for this game. The sound effects make you feel like you are in the huddle and taking part in real NFL action. Everything from the in-game commentary to the thwack! of opposing players' pads, to the stadium's chants and music--all pump up the game's fun factor.

One new feature that will help first-time players is the addition of in-game help menus that walk players through specific offensive and defensive formations and teach them about the game. Another new feature that old-school players will like is the "play as any skill" mode that enables you to take control of any player, including a receiver. Once you run your route, you can actually signal the quarterback to throw you the ball! Features like these make NFL GameDay 2001 an intense NFL action game for the PlayStation. --Todd Mowatt

Pros:

  • Great sound effects and graphics
  • In-game help menus help teach the game to newbies
  • Players can take control of any player on the field
Cons:
  • Players may neglect their personal lives

If you want the best NFL football game for your sony Playstation look no futher. The NFL Gameday series has had consistant gameplay and ballance for years now. You ever notice how Madden make running the football too easy one year, and near imposible the next, no consistency in gameplay there! In Gameday though the gameplay rules. Difficulty levels and computer AI are completly adjustable making it easy for players of all levels to find a proper challenge for them. At the intermediate skill level playing 8 minute quarters I often find myself stacking up some very realistic game stats. I will have a quaterback that passes for about 220-250 yards, and run the ball for about 130-150. The ballence of the offensive attack makes this game so much fun! I suggest everyone give NFL Gameday a shot over Madden.

i'm a huge fan of sports games and football is my favorite! i like to take control of teams and feel like i'm out there on the field/sidelines! the gameday series is in my opinion the best footbal series ever! i've played many others including madden (i've not really liked the madden series but i have yet to play the 2001 version which looks pretty good)and the nfl2k for dreamcast (which has good graphics but i just don't like it). i just rented gameday 2001 and it was a letdown and i expected alot more since this will probally be the last gameday for the original playstation w/ p.station 2 coming this october. i like the addition of being able to set your rosters before a game in the season mode and the little easter egg bonus you get after a season win but there really isn't anything else new in the game. the look is exactly the same as last years (which was great as was 99)as is the stadiums (i was really looking forward to tampa's pirate ship! even new york's field is still turf!)and players like carl pickens (who of course is with the titans now and is their #1 reciver)and ben coates (who is with the ravens now) isn't even in the game! i'm also really letdown with the on field celebrations (after a bad play the player still celebrates which is really lame) and the lack of free agent players (they could've added alot more players to pick from there!)i haven't played enough of it yet (i haven't done the gm mode yet-that was one of the best things about 2000!). btw... how come it's rare to see a player fumble? on the past two gamedays i rarely saw the computer fumble but either player 1 or 2 has a button to push to make the ball carrier/holder fumble! i've also noticed that after playing this years version i didn't have 1 injury (and i played for almost 4 hours straight!).Read more ›

I have bought the Madden series for the last 3 years now and have been quite stratified with its performance over Gameday. However, this year I was disappointed to see that Madden 2001 was pretty much the same exact game as 2000. Same look and feel, same plays, I wanted something different. I tried out Gameday 2001 side-by-side with Madden and I liked it, I like it a lot. The graphics are very tight, the game play is very challenging at the pro levels, and it's a lot of fun. The end game statistics turn out very siliar to that of a real game and the CPU plays very intelligently with a good mix of run and pass, unlike Madden which is very pass centric
Now, I am not saying that Gameday 2001 is clearly better than Madden 2001, their both very unique games, but I wanted something different this year and I got it with Gameday 2001. A great game which is a lot of fun.

This is a great game, and it is really a nice looking game. It isn't as good as what is on PS2, but this is ok nonetheless. The gameplay is the same, but it is still exciting and excellent. You really should own this game.

This game is near identical to Gameday2000. Same music, same sound, same plays. The graphics managed to get worse, somehow. They tried to make size and speed more of a factor, but it didn't work well. Having current rosters is the only advantage.
I have owned every Gameday title, and loved every one. They always seemed to bet better and better. This version was such a step backward that I had to laugh. It was like the developers forgot they were supposed to make it, and threw together this version in a few days.
If you have Gameday2000, don't bother getting this.

I Got Gameday 2001 for christmas and have played it quite alot. It is extremely fun when you play a human opponent, but I tend to get [angry]when I play the computer because I can't beat it. It is a very good challenge and I think its better than alot of the new football games. I thought that the selection of moves couldn't be better. Overall, I thought this game was pretty good

I love the gameday series and 989 sports but I was very dissapointed with this years verson. It only has a two three really good points and a about 10 bad points.
Frist start off with the good points. The genaral manager mode is supurbe and the satisticts are verry good. And lastly the ability to play as a reciver and run your own route in game.
Alright heare are the big list of bad things. Running is WAY TO EASY in one game when I was the bears there running back(Curtis Enis) who is not ratted very well got 115 yards and I only ran the ball 13 times with the diffuclty on ALL PRO. The deffense is so dumb I ran the same passing play all game long and I caught it every time except once or twice. The players all look the same linemen are as skinny as wide recivers(some exceptions). After awhile you will say God Damn Phill Simms Shut Up. when I made a caught a 70 yard pass Phill Shims said "My old football caoch said look ball in hands, look ball in pit then run like heack good job." I mean did you understand that it's so dumb and he says dumb stuff like that all the time. The last Bug is a tiny one but it gets on your nerves every time you miss a sack even after the quter back has thrown the ball you will get a ruffing the passer penaltie. (Whats Up with that?)
Overall this game is way to easy and has to many bugs. the only fun part this game has is GMM (Genaral Manager Mode) and when your playing agenst a friend becaus you will have someone to laugh with at all the stupid stuff the annoucers say. In two words: Buy Madden
