A long time ago, I once believed that when a game had much success, the only thing to do for the next game was to IMPROVE
. Unfortunately, that belief went straight out the window when I played Madden NFL 2001
. EA Sports tried something new with the Player Detail, which I think bombed completely. It's like there is a black outline on every player model, which really downgrades the attractiveness of the game. Plus, they look very 'blocky,' very unlike Madden NFL 2000
. The stadiums' appearance is the same like the year before, which is descent.
The sounds are just the same as the year before, in that you have Madden and Summerall commentating (take it as you will), along with the whistles, tackles and crowd noise. No big effort for improvement was proven to me from EA Sports.
