Even with these slight technical issues, Madden NFL 2002 is far and away the best portable football game at the time of its release. As the first attempt at a "real" football game on the GBA, it's a promising glimpse at the handheld future of the franchise, as well as an enjoyable game in its own right.
It would have been a darn shame if EA Sports skipped over the Game Boy Advance when bringing Madden NFL 2002, as it would have been a definite snub to the portable owners. But the company quietly released this version out the door with very little fanfare...this is usually a ploy from publishers who aren't really proud about the final product. But the game for GBA ended up a decent one. There's definite room for improvement, but it's a good starting point for next year's version. Start tweaking it now, boys...you've got ten months until next season.
