Madden NFL 2002 for PCs is based closely on the previous year's version. It re-uses that version's menus and its unique set of modes and options, while updating teams and rosters to the new season, adding a few new features and employing an improved graphics engine.

The teams have been updated to the 2001 NFL season and include the 31 regular teams, the 2002 expansion team, the Houston Texans, plus many All-Madden and classic NFL teams. All the same modes from the predecessor return: Exhibition (including a situation set-up option), Season, Franchise, Practice and Great Games. As before, online play is also included. New features include adding custom team logos (used in-game on uniforms, helmets and end zones) when creating new teams and the export of teams from Franchise mode so they can be used in Exhibition games.

The new graphics engine allows for higher details in player models, higher frame rates, more 3D character models (including bench players and the chain gang) and features real-time lighting and shadows. To make use of the new technology, the game now allows for afternoon and dusk in addition to day and night games for some extra dramatic lighting.
