Madden 2002 has new features including Season, Franchise, Tournament, Create-A-Team, and many others. It has updated rosters and better stat records of players. This is the first Madden to use the Madden Challenge to receive tokens to buy Madden cards that unlock cheats, historic players, and boost player's ratings for different periods of time. There sadly isn't online support for this game on Xbox. PS2 owners however have the pleasure of having this feature. Hopefully in the future EA will have online support for all consoles. Still, overall, Madden 2002 is a great game; highly recommended.
