(Review of N64 version)
The NFL QB Club series just can't seem to lift itself off the ground. This year's installment is
just as disappointing as last year's, unless you add the extra disappointment which comes from
realizing that this is a Dreamcast title.
The control scheme is sloppy, and you can't re-assign commands to the buttons of choice.
You're stuck with the poor layout.
Passing is still a major problem. By the time you pull off the control maneuver to make a pass,
you've already been tackled. The character animation is also uninspired and helps to create the
impression of overall physics inaccuracy.
The graphics do not show off the Dreamcast's power. The Nintendo 64 could look this good,
and that's not a compliment. The crowds are motionless dots that have more in common with a
Seurat painting than anything else.
Club 2001 has the obligatory create player, playbook, profile, team, yada, yada, yada, but all of
this means nothing next to poor game play.
