NFL 2K3 Box art I've played nearly every football game I could get my hands on since the Atari 2600 came out with their "state of the art" 3 on 3 football, and this is quite simply the best football game made to date. A hefty improvement over last years NFL2K2 in both gameplay and graphics, and a league above this years Madden 2003. Add in the fact that it is Xbox Live compatable, and this is the complete package. This is in my top 3 Xbox games ever (Halo, Splinter Cell, NFL 2K3)

The controls are nearly the same as last years NFL 2K2, which is to say that it plays very well. The addition of the ESPN license helps with the overall presentation and adds some realism. I particularly liked the weekly wrap up at the end of every week (Although, the play of the week was always semi-retarded).

Simply the best out there. The replays are spectacular, the faces and expressions are very good, but this is still one area I think they can improve even more on. The attention to detail is astounding.

The commentary is the best in any football game. Some will not like the fact they didn't use well known stars for the commentary, but I think this is a bonus. Clearly they spent a lot of time recording, as rarely do you ever hear the same thing more than once, and they are spot on with the commentary.

It's really nit-picking to say this could be improved, but I'll try. Keep on improving the facial modules and expressions, and make the play of the week a little cooler (9 out of 10 times it's a 25 yard field goal?!?)

Overall: 10.0 / 10
Gameplay: 10.0 / 10
Visuals: 9.0 / 10
Sound: 10.0 / 10
