Summary: I got this game for exactly one reason: being able to have eight simultaneous players on one team on one PS2 console. To that end, it has amazed and impressed me beyond my hopes. Having 8 players on one screen is a tricky challenge and for most games it's impractical.
Summary: For the record, I am reviewing the European version of FIFA 2002, for PS2 (I imagine the european and usa versions are the same quality) written on February 12, 2003. I received this game as a Birthday gift around Christmas, 2001.
Summary: That about sums it up. This game is rather. Other FIFA games have been fun, but not as much as this one. I loved FIFA 95 for the Genesis, but this version kicks 95's patootie. I especially like the fact that you can control the keeper from anywhere on the field.
Summary: FIFA 2002 is the best soccer game out there. It has all of your favorite players like Brian McBride, Brad Friedel, and Landon Donovan. It also has all of your favorite teams like Arsenal and Manchester United.
Summary: Wow, this game is definitely the best one besides maybe Madden 2002 by EA Sports. This game is fairly realistic and allows you to have an incredible amount of control on every move you wish to make. There are only a few drawbacks, and that's only if you consider the first one a drawback.
Summary: I have long been a fan of international football. I have waited for a game that captures the passion and drama of the sport for a long time, but my waiting has ended with the release of FIFA 2002.
