Love football? You'll love Madden. This definitely ranks as one of the best sports games for the N64. While QBC put up a valiant fight in its battle with Madden, the EA sports team has put all the pieces together and created some gaming magic. I suggest checking this game out for the incredible gameplay alone.
Overall, Madden NFL 2001 - while not dramatically different when compared with last year's game - is a slightly more advanced version of the game. Everyone who's a fan of video game football, whether a fan of the Madden series or not, will surely enjoy the game's solid control and presentation. The tweaks to the AI and the small additions like the two-minute drill and coach-specific playbooks are more than enough reason for fans of the series to pick this year's iteration up.
Gaming Age
While the game suffers from a few flaws, it's identical to its PSX cousin, just with a prettier face. One thing is true, Madden 2001 is the best football game to ever grace a cartridge, and EA leaves the N64 with a bang. Good job guys!
Mega Fun
Madden ist auch heuer die Referenz, wenn es um Statistiken und Details geht. Allerdings sind die goldenen Wertungszeiten seit einem NFL2K1 für die „alten“ Konsolen vorbei. Nicht nur, dass die Grafik auf dem DC um Längen besser ist, auch die Spielbarkeit und Dynamik ist von einem anderen Stern. Wer jedoch ein N64 besitzt und Football-Spiele mag, der wird an Madden natürlich nicht vorbeikommen.
Game Vortex
My final note: The only thing that is dramatically different is the graphics, which got worse. A couple new game features provide some new fun, but all in all, you're playing the same game from a year ago... except with worse graphics.
Ultimately, Madden 2001 is a good game and a fitting end to the series on the N64. While the graphics suffer this time out, the game remains quite fun and won't disappoint the Madden fans out there. With great replay value and the ever-important current rosters, it is virtually irresistible for N64 football fans. Madden is football, and it proves it here again with a solid, tricked-out game for the new millennium.
