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,'ve got ten months until next season.
Advance (2002)
Das Gameplay an sich ist gut gelungen. Die Pässe kommen dank einer aufs Minimum reduzierten Steuerung zuverlässig an und die Übersicht ist durch eine clever inszenierte 3D-Illusion gewährleistet. Allerdings bringt die Sprite-Grafik Probleme mit sich. Oftmals ist es nur schwer abzuschätzen, wo das Ei nun wirklich rumfliegt - hinter dem Spieler oder doch vor ihm? Letztlich ist es aber die schlechte KI. die Madden zum Mittelmaß degradiert.
