Summary: To be frank, FIFA is a complete letdown of a footballing 'sim'. It's simply the most shallow gameplay to grace the Playstation - scores of 13-0 can be racked up inside two minutes on the highest difficulty levels.
Summary: Its hard to put into words how bad this game is. Avoid at all costs and instead pick up iss2 pro. Smooth graphics, good shooting, great crossing,realistic goalkeeping, great through ball oppurtunites. All things that iss2 has, and fifa2001 doesnt even consider.
If you want to play football - buy ISS Pro Evolution 2

Summary: First off, ignore any review that gives this five stars - these type of people buy EVERY new copy FIFA each year, and then try to justify it, despite the hollow feeling of disappointment they have inside.
Summary: As a FIFA fan for much of the early series games, I have been seriously disappointed with the last couple of products. the faults are minor, but fatal: the players move well in a straight line, but you never feel in full control; the ball physics seem to obey a whole different set of rules to the...
Excerpt: Well this is an opinions page isnt it? Personally I dont like the FIFA series anymore. It used to be the best there was but now it has been beaten all ends up by ISS Pro Evolution. For presentation you cant beat FIFA I have played the PS2 version of this game and it looks wonderful.
Summary: I have just a few words for this game. yes it is beautiful and yes the soundtrack is perfect but thats immediately where the fun stops. the gameplay .... like all the other fifa games. youll score everytime you shoot and the game relys more on having luck than that you have to be tactical.
Summary: Do not be sucked in. Yes it has the license, yes it has the soundtrack, yes it has the motion capture with the top stars. It also has the most appaling gameplay possible. It reminds me very much of basketball, every time you go up the pitch you score.
Summary: A la jugabilidad afectan varias cosas. Desde la física del comportamiento del balón (mucho más real que en pasadas ocasiones) hasta el incremento de la inteligencia artificial de los jugadores, tanto de los de nuestro equipo como del de los contrarios.
Summary: Todos los Fifas son iguales. Ya aburre ver como nos engañan con spots tontos que hacen que nos creamos que en realidad el Fifa ha cambiado. Pero lo único que cambia en verdad, es el nombre de los jugadores, los colores de las camisetas y algún que otro gráfico. ¡Pero que no somos tontos!
Cons: Todas, el precio, el soporte, el marketing . . .
