Summary: Compared to previous versions, this came across as quite a disappointment. Previously, the only version of fifa i had played oftenly was Fifa 99 on the pc. And though the graphics were poor, the gameplay more than made up for it. Also with the option to save replays, and even watch them from a view that you could control yourself. With my PC becoming increasingly slow, i decided to invest in a PS2 last year, which i now only ever buy games for.
Summary: ...and still very few improvments on the gameplay side. I've played on both the PS2 and the PC version, and while the PS2 version is superior, it isn't by much. I managed to get through an entire team of players before tapping the ball in from about 5 yards. The keepers are good, but it is still too easy to score in the matches. This has been the same since at least World Cup '98 and yet nothing has been done to fix this.
Summary: Can't believe people are giving this five stars. they have obviously never played the pro evolution series, which to my mind is in a league of its own. Two stars were awarded for presentation - always done nicely by fifa games, - and commentary which is excellent. overall though i find the game poor. nothing is more satisfying than seeing the net bulge as your team scores, but here the net seems rigid!
Summary: The fifa games used to be great and very playable but fifa 2001 is better and more playable than fifa 2003. I think fifa has had its day now. There are a few good points on fifa 2003 the graphics are good and the commentary is good but that's were is ends saddly. On a friendly game you can only be chosen teams and the set up menu on fifa 2003 is not stright forward as well. Game play well this is were it really is disappointing very poor and the worst part of the game.
Summary: If you liked fifa 98-2002, chances are you won't like this game. Instead of adding/improving stuff, they've binned everything that was good about fifa and started again, presumably to make it more like pro evolution. Well, this game just isn't fifa. I have tried to get to like it, but every time I play it I just think how much better previous versions have been. Volleying is gone, curling is gone, crossing is just useless.
