For the past two years, Madden games have been very smart, realistic, and deep football simulations that have been plagued by various problems such as sluggish gameplay or lackluster graphics. As of this year, those irritations are entirely a thing of the past: EA has managed to significantly improve the game in the off-season by making it run faster and smoother, while also improving the way it looks.
The Video Game Critic
The control is dead-on, and the running game is no longer an exercise in futility. Players break tackles and get pulled down in a realistic manner. It's not unusual to see awe-inspiring plays like a receiver trying to keep his feet inbounds while catching a ball on the sidelines. The two-man commentary is also impressive. Selecting a football game is not a tough choice in 2000 - go Madden all the way.
The more you like NFL football, the more you'll like Madden NFL 2000. It's a good thing that new video game platforms are coming out, because it's hard to see what else could be done on the Playstation to make this a better NFL simulation.
Overall, Madden 2000 is the most fun I've had playing a Madden game in a long time. The control and new Madden Challenge mode alone are reasons to pick this game over the competition. I still prefer the total-control passing of NFL Gameday 2000, but I must admit that in the end I had more fun playing Madden. Madden 2000 just has a great feel to it. I've been a Gameday fan for awhile, but this year I have to pick Madden over Gameday.
What a great game! There is no way you could ever get tired of playing Madden NFL 2000. With countless options, teams, modes, and more, you are sure to be well occupied. This is clearly the best available American Football game on the market today. A must buy for any football fan.
Overall, Madden NFL 2000 is an excellent game. The improved Franchise mode, awesome customizability and new passing features make this a worthy upgrade to Madden '99. I really thought it would be hard to improve on last year's title, but EA Sports has done it.
Le soft bénéficie d'une réalisation technique correcte avec une bonne modélisation des joueurs, des mouvements réaliste et des stades plutôt réussis. Bref, ce nouveau Madden constituera un bon investissement pour qui n'a pas acheté un des épisodes précédents.
It seems like I say this every year, but this has to be the best Madden game, yet. Madden NFL 2000 has tons of great features, the game looks and moves a whole lot better than last year's version, it's a smart purchase for those who just want a good, complete football game. I just wish the sound was a little better. Mr. Madden? Get some sleep before you do the voiceovers, you just sound so unenthused. C'mere my little pork shake, do you need some tickle time?
Si le soft ne souffre d'aucune carence au niveau des options, on regrette que les graphismes ne soient pas aussi réussis compte tenu de l'expérience de l'éditeur sur la machine de Sony. Enfin, une vitesse de jeu plus importante n'aurait certainement pas déçu les fans du genre. Les actions sont belles mais les joueurs manquent de punch en comparaison avec NFL Blitz.
Ook op de PSX blijft Madden aan de top van de ranglijst van footballgames staan. Ik ben benieuwd hoe de eerste PSX 2-versie er uit zal zien.
