When I play Madden NFL 2003, I think about how when a new Madden game comes out, the last one is rarely played anymore. Even if it's good like this one, it happens every year.
This game is (of course) about NFL Football during the 02-03 season. It's graphics are pretty good, but the only really good mode is Play Now Mode. Like all other Madden games, it's a fun party or one player game. I give this game 7 out of 10.
Even after all this time this game is totally playable. Especially if you want to go back and play with some of your favorite rosters from that era. Of course, you are not going to have all of the added managerial features that today's Madden has but who wouldn't want to be Marshall Faulk and the St Louis Rams.
