DON'T GET FEVER! GET NFL 2K3.

Fever is overrated. It's too unrealistic. The defensive AI sucks, and there's nothing too special about it. The only reason it's still alive is because Microsoft makes you think that it's te best football game out. Just because it's made by Microsoft does't mean it's good. No need to be a fanboy. I have played all three NFL games (NFL fever, 2k2, and madden) and Madden OBVIOUSLY has the best gameplay. You really got to wonder why all the websites are giving Madden games 9/10's. You gotta wonder why PS2 gamers love the game. Madden is very ESTABLISHED franchise. People in this forum diss the game a lot, but people in TXB love the game and hate Fever.

If Madden had Live features, i would buy that, but 2k3 is the next best thing!

Did you think that was a good or bad review?

I already have had pow for about a month now, and it is the worst game I own! It lacks a fun factor, you can excape and hide in camp they will look for you then the next day you can go into roll call and they will act like nothing happens! POW is a lousy excuse for a game. Gameplay is slow, no action what so ever. I couldn't play it for more then 30 mins before I had to play another game. I have tried to get into it numerous times and cannot. The graphics don't even test the xbox. Looks like a ps2 game. The cutscenes are horribly done with crappy voiceovers, acting, and overall motion of the characters. Your missions are like, sneak here or do this. The characters, especially the guards are very cheezy, it is really lame! I give the game a 3.5/10....to many great games on xbox and this is definatly not one of them!

POW = Prisoners of War...it was released about a month ago for the PoS2 and will be released on the Box on 8/20. It's kind of a "Saving Private Ryan" type game. I heard that it was pretty good...but quick

UNREALISTIC|-Blitz------Fever---------------Average----------NFL 2k------Madden--------|REALISTIC!

I agree it isn't as realistic...I am more of a casual football fan so, I tend to like the over the top kind of games. Who knows! From what I heard MS was redoing fever...I will hold my breath!

....I definatly suggest to rent POW! It is not going to be a game everyone likes! Just remember a person that pays 50 for a game is more then likely going to be bias towards it....I am just saying I much rather play, enclave, ncaa, splashdown, hits, or really anyother game besides mike tysons punchout then this game!

Madden has by far the best gameplay. But in 2003 they lack online which will make their sales go way down on the xbox....
