Excerpt: Before I start my rant let me say this. I'm a massive "EA Sports" and "FIFA" fan. I love the games. Can't get enough of them. But when I traded in my old Fifa 2000 and replaced it with Fifa 2001 I got quite a shock. First up having eagerly listened to the standard "E.A. sports. It's in the game!
Pros: Updated team lists, better goalkeepers
Cons: Weak opening, dull celebrations, nothing new .
Excerpt: I've seen quite a few heated debates about this argument...ISS Vs FIFA. I for one am a dedicated child of the FIFA games. I have every FIFA game there has been on the Playstation, right back to its humble days as FIFA '96. It is simple.
Excerpt: Ever since 1994 on the Mega-Drive, EA Sports' Fifa series both on quality and popularity has dominated the football computer game market. No other series has even come close. There has been International Superstar Soccer, with games on the Mega-Drive, N64 and Playstation, and there has been the UEFA...
Pros: Season mode continues after 1 year
Cons: Gameplay is somewhat repetitive after some time
Excerpt: FIFA I must say is one of the very best games that i have ever played on, the graphics that the game contains are excellent. All the sequals to FIFA 2001 are as good as eachother and this game should not be underestimated providing hours of enjoyment.
Excerpt: In my opinion, this is probably the best football game on the playstation at the moment - the only game that comes close is ISS Pro Evolution, however I recommend FIFA 2001 for football fans because it has proper tactics and the correct footballers names.
Pros: Has all of the proper player names and all of the major leagues, and some minor ones to such as MLS and the Israeli league .
Cons: International squads are slightly out of date, and Mark Lawrenson is the co - commentator . The goalkeepers are occasionally semi - retarded when it comes to passbacks and bouncing balls . apart from this there are no major faults
Excerpt: This game is well quoted as being an upgraded version of Fifa 2000. It may be the case, but this game is superior in just about every field. Ever since I had got my Playstation I had promised myself a football game to replace my PC based World Cup 98. I got what I wanted.
Pros: Great playability, smooth graphics, and a great flowing commentary (if often interupted by foul outbursts from us in our livingroom armchairs ! )
Cons: Shame they have simplified the control system, meaning less skill moves
Excerpt: Fifa 2001 is a excellent game and should be the most most widely read footie game in the world......... But its not Magazines say its the worst fifa ever and should be left on the shelfs, that is absolute rubbish as it is by far the best fifa game.The graphics are better way better, there are lots...
Pros: the best ever
Cons: magizines cant come to realize its a great game
Excerpt: After buying all the fifa series before this I wondered this year if I was going to buy it because all the football games today are getting the same.But im glad I did buy it because it blew me away with the quality of it. Fifa is the best football simulation game around.
Excerpt: Games like FIFA normally come across to kids as a great game to complete and play on it twenty four hours so to speak. Now those people out there with good job prospects I must warn you that these games are extremely addictive and can ruin your life.
Excerpt: FIFA has returned to show the rest of the young pretenders how to play a game of football. With EA’s reputation, and the megastars they have lined up, you'd better get ready for the game of your life.
Pros: leagues and the amount of players
Cons: it does not match up to iss pro evolutions playability
