Excerpt: Over the years I have played many fifa games, not owning them all but at least having owned every fifa pc game since fifa 98 I find it just gets better and better. So when Fifa 2003 was released and that was the year I got my PS2 i decided to give it a go! Graphics This is another fantastic Fifa game and just like every other year the graphics are getting better and better. There are over 20 or so real stadiums featured in the game and each look just like the real thing!
Excerpt: FIFA Football 2003 is the third title of the FIFA series for PS2. FIFA's previous titles on PS2 have not lived up to the quality of Pro Evolution Soccer will things be any different this time? In FIFA 2003 you can play as your desired team on a variety of modes. The first one is The Club Championship which has the top 18 clubs in Europe slogging it out for the biggest prize in the game.
Excerpt: I first brought this game second hand at christmas just for a bit of a multiplayer laugh with all my mates, but when they had left i found my self getting stuck into the seson and cup modes, what a game. The graphics are the best yet and are a big improvment on 2002, the croud is picked out in more detail and i could swear i heard them chanting my name!!
Excerpt: Another addition to the FIFA series I borrowed this from a mate tried to avoid giving it back and when he came round to demand it back had to go buy my own copy. Anybody who likes Footy games will have played one of the FIFA series at some point in their game playing life. I still have my copy of FIFA 96 that was my first introduction! However, FIFA broke the mould with this game it’s not like all the others!
Excerpt: in this you will get to choose what team you pick and you could even get to win a couple of medals and you could win alot of silver wear. you also get to control your picked team which you can get to control and transfer. so you could get the best players in the world in a good team already. also you could if you wanted slaughter the other team by playing on the easy mode so you can score at least 9 goals in the first half.
Excerpt: Having only got a PS2 this year this is my first footie game on this console. And what a leap from the comparitively promitive graphics of Fifa on PS One! I was immediately hooked. There is great attention to detail from El Hadji Diouf's bleached hair to David Seaman's ponytail. And the gameplay is alright too! Though I found it quite challenging at first you can create some impressive moves and score some spectacular goals.
Pros: Highly addictive, realistic images and gameplay
Cons: The pause as a goal goes in . Team management is fiddly
Excerpt: Fifa 2003 is completely different from any of the previous Fifa games. It has new in-stadium atmosphere (crowd chants), new goalkeeper realism (better diving, realistic movement), new detailed player animations (look very like actual players), new ball control and new free kick control (which is great fun). Other new features include new dribbling, shooting, crossing and passing. There are well over 10,000 real players and 350 teams in 16 different leagues.
Excerpt: EA have done it again. This is a must game with any footie fan who owns a PS2. The graphics are more realistic than ever with each player being individually modelled on their real life name sake (over 10,000 players in total)and 10 camera angles to choose from, this really is the best looking football on the market The sound in FIFA 2003 is excellent from each teams fans having their own songs to sing and instruments to play to the running commentary during the match.
Excerpt: I must admit when I settled down to play Fifa 2003 I wasn't expecting too much, even though I was aware that this is a completely revamped game. The previous Fifa games had not impressed me. I'd already snapped up league leader Pro Evolution 2 and rented This Is Football 2003 so I knew what the key opposition was like. Well I have to say that I am in shock over what must easily be the best Fifa football game ever.
Excerpt: Having played every fifa game going this is the best yet unsuprisingly. The graphics are tops, with fans actually looking like fans and the players increasingly more looking like players. The game will last you a while to, theres so many tournaments to compete in with stadiums to unlock. The replays after a good shot or a foul or an offside are a great idea now theres no more screaming that wasnt offside because the proof is there!
