Madden NFL 2002
Released: Aug 20, 2001
While Madden 2002 looked mostly identical to its 2001 predecessor, some key improvements were made. Introduced were new modes like the Two Minute Drill and Situation Mode, where users were able to set up and recreate some classic moments in football history. Meanwhile, Franchise Mode allowed players to bring in the expansion team Houston Texans into their league after one season, giving fans a glimpse at the NFL’s new division alignment to be adopted the following year.
