1 review about NFL Fever 2002

One of the best ever.

A thoroughly enjoyable football game that is an ideal game for a relative "novice" gamer like me. I don't get to play games very often and so can't really tolerate a steep learning curve, because weeks may go by between sessions. I'm also a football fan, so this is a great game for me. Two minutes and you're able to play competently.

The graphics are great, the announcers are funny (but you get to learn their schtick too soon...you learn what situations will trigger what comment), all the teams are represented, plus some silly imaginary teams (Milan Monks, Pansies, Skeletons, etc.).

Gameplay, as I said, is simple, but you can certainly make it hard on yourself. I find defense to be a bit frustrating...sometimes the player you're supposed to be "controlling" will run the play on his own if you don't do anything with your controller, and other times, he'll just stand there and not cover anyone or try to tackle. Also

1) the AI team NEVER misses field goals and their kick-offs are always huge and they always run a huge return, usually never less than 25 yards.

2)On the other hand, your return teams are always pitiful and your kickers don't seem to kick very far (or the punters either).

3) The AI always seems to call for a fair catch too, but that's okay with me.

4) The AI teams don't execute run plays very often. This means they often rip off big gains...more often than in a regular game. It also means, though, that you can run a blitz more often, which is more fun.

These are all pretty minor annoyances. It's a fun time for the "non-serious" gamer. Also, it's easy to play against another "real" person.
