Summary: This game turned out much better than i thought it would. It's not as slow as i thought it might be, and can be downright fun at times. Probably the best part is slide kicking the goalie when he's down and watching it again and again on replay. The announcers are very annoying, especially if you have surround sound and you're in another part of the room. The referees are a little too strict for my liking, but all in all, not a bad game. Graphics are good.
Summary: FIFA, a name we're all familiar with. The father of soccer games, the standard by which all other soccer games are judged by. What went wrong ? New console ; same game. FIFa's back with better graphics but nothing else to offer. Okay the control is a little better and the player recognision is amazing but if you are looking for just one new feature, you'll be looking for a long time. Whether you want to buy this game depends on whether you go for graphics or gameplay.
Summary: This game has nice graphics, good gameplay, and it probably the best soccer game ever made. I do not see a franchise mode in the game and the buttons for menus are not consistent with other EA games which is just ridiculous. The game will provide you with hours of soccer fun. If you don't like soccer you will probably get bored of it after a while, but this is one of the better games. I would rent it before buying it if I could go back in time.
Summary: Well... the graphics aren't anything great... good for aconsole system, but [not good] compared to latest PC titles.... not much eyecandy or anything... basically just run around and try to score..... probably fun with 2 players (though i haven't tried it)...
Summary: Bieng a huge fan of football(soccer to all u Americans) i couldnt wait to play this.The Fifa series has always taken the more arcadey approach at recreating the beautiful game and this game is no diffrence, it might have the best grafix ever seen in a soccer game but the gameplay is completely shallow, the thing that i always hated about fifa is the proven way of scoring (run down the touchline, cross the ball into the box and double tap the shoot button, a goal is...
Summary: After playing Madden for about 3 weeks and reading the reviews, I couldn't wait to play FIFA. But now I'm really disappointed because gameplay is the worst I've seen in a Fifa game (I have bought every title since 1994). There's no camera angle good enough for controlling the action. The ball moves in the air like if it is an arcade game and not a simulation. I guess if EA's programmers ever saw soccer ball moving in the air because in the game is so unrealistic.
Summary: When a first generation sports game comes along that shows us exactly what a system is capable of, presenting gorgeous gameplay along with astounding graphics, we can't help but quietly awe at the television screen as we play the game over and over with nary a complaint in our minds. We hold it high, establishing new unimagined standards that future sports games must at least match, as it becomes the trophy game to show off your console with.
Summary: At first, I was really psyched when I heard this was going to be one of the first games released. I read a few reviews on the game which led me to rent the it first. I AM SO GLAD I DID! I was not at all impressed with the game. I have previuos versions of it and proved to be the same game with just a bit better graphics. The first day I had the game I played on proffesional mode and won the World Cup with the USA team, now thats not very realistic.
Summary: I've been waiting a long time for the "perfect" soccer game but alas, my wait is not over. I've been purchasing the FIFA Soccer games since 1994, when the game started becoming popular. Since, then, I have purchased the FIFA 96, 97, 98, 99 and now 2001 series. I actually bought my ps2 really just for the FIFA soccer game. I awaited the arrival of this game at my doorstep with such anxiety.
Summary: The graphics are better. But, there is almost always a but. It is slower than past versions. The passing .... It is still a fun game, but it is just way too slow. I am used to fast paced action with the previous versions. I would rent it first.
