Sweetness

Madden 2002 is presented well, with this year's spokesperson being Daunte Culpepper. The intro video is pretty nice and the game's main menu is full of options and settings that you can change. The memory card is also easy to access along with the ''quick game'' option which allows you to play a game without having to go through the hassle of setting it up. This is what most would call the beef of the Madden Series. It is basically what John Madden is known for: the strategy of the game of football. Not the stadiums, or the great player animations, but simply the way football is played in the NFL. And again, John and EA deliver a truly extraordinary game. Defenses audible coverages and bring in the secondary on first downs, lines shift to the strong side, and the computer doesn't always punt on close fourth downs. On offense, you can not only select plays out of their respective formations, but also from the new ''Go-to-Guy Menu'' which lets you choose plays that go to specific players. Another new feature is ''Ask Madden'' which allows you to run a play selected by John Madden himself. Interceptions and other turnovers occur just about as often as they do in real life, as do long passes and kickoff/punt return touchdowns. The graphics in the past have at times been shaky for the Madden Series. EA needed to pack some punch into this year's game. And did they ever. The player's no longer look like polygons. they actually look like real players. They breath steam on cold days/nights and they react to different plays on the field (they'll cringe as they get hit, they act innocent when a penalty is called on them, etc.) The stadiums are pretty much identical to those in the NFL and the weather options will blow you away. Blizzard-like snow, gusting 20 MPH winds, extreme fog, and pouring rain look incredible, yet realistic.
