Bien sûr, toutes les innovations possibles ont été réalisées et les graphismes remis au goût du jour, mais comme d'hab, si vous ou l'un de vos proches possédez la version précédente, l'investissement n'est pas, comment dire, euh... indispensable.

If you want to play a good football game on the road, this is one you should try. If you want to sit at home and play, try something else.
Fans of portable gaming who generally dislike sports titles should give Madden 2000 a try: The control is dead-on, the graphics are clean, and there are enough options to keep you tossing the pigskin around for a long time.
As far as portable football titles go, I'm really surprised how well Madden 2000 came out. It controls well, doesn't look terrible, and it's a fun diversion. I've been spoiled by NFL Blitz (not the Game Boy Color game, the arcade and console versions), so I'm used to quicker playing games. But you folks out there who can't get enough of the real thing will like having a decent version for the road.

If nothing else about this game, I did learn a bit more about what the hell NFL is, although I still think that any half decent rugby team would kick an American Football team's ass, black and blue. As with many games, this one is carried along by having some famous sporting bloke on the front, I don't know if Madden ever was a NFL player or if he was always just a commentator, but having him in the game doesn't really add anything extra to it. If you like NFL then this is probably the best game for you on the Gameboy, but if you don't or don't mind either way, I doubt it will keep you enthralled for long.
All Game Guide
Madden games have a feel to them, and this one is lacking it. The title could just as easily be Tecmo Bowl while you're playing. If you don't care about that, though, and just want to play some high scoring football games without much regard for realism, you'll probably enjoy this title anyway. However, if you're like me, you expect more from a football game with the John Madden name on it, even if it is played on a 2-inch by 2-inch screen with tinny sound.

A l’origine, le football américain est un sport vif et spectaculaire mais sur Game Boy on s’ennuie ferme, tant l’animation est lente. Le seul point positif que l’on retiendra est le menu des options (qui est très fourni) dans lequel les modes de jeu classiques vous sont proposés : Partie rapide, Exhibition, Mort subite, Playoffs, Nouvelle saison, etc. L’ambiance sonore, quant à elle, est pleine d’entrain, ce qui épice un tout petit peu la réalisation générale du jeu.
