This game has had a lot of advanced hype, so does it live up to it? I think so. It runs a little slow, especially when you are running the ball. I guess that’s better than unrealistic speed bursts like in the old Genesis Joe Montana Football. The game opens with a nice intro that really gives you the TV telecast feel. The AI is very smart too, which is a plus for playing against the CPU. There are three different difficulty levels I recommend starting out on the rookie level for a game or two. Pro level is really hard.
I don't think there has ever been as much anticipation for the release of a videogame system in my lifetime that compares to the USA release of the Sony Playstation 2. Sony has officially announced a release date of October 26, 2000 with a debut shipment of 1 million units! The retail price will be $299.00. This is a far cry from the $500+ they are going for now for a Japanese model. I am heavily anticipating great things from the new system as it is a DVD player and is also downward compatible allowing users to still play the over 700+ original PSX games.
What can you say about this staple of video games? I can say that most of the time that Madden football has been the best game out there. Last year (99 version) I felt that Madden had lost its edge. So I was not sure what to expect with this years version. I was pleasantly surprised right out of the gate. The players' size, weight and speed were terrific. The tackling was amazing! It's easy to pass, running is a bit harder but realistic I felt.
What do ya get when you cross the WWF with the NFL? The XFL? Nope...NFL Blitz 2000! This game defines what smashmouth football is. Back boy drops, slams, and big splashes make up the tackles in this sequel to the #1 BLITZ. With 4 players support, new fields & staduims, custom playbooks, realistic weather conditions and "ON-FIRE" mode this game is action packed from beginning to end!
