Summary: This is a great football game in every way possible. It out does all the other Fifa's put together. First Graphics are excellent superb lighting super realistic facial ngarphics kits and stadiums are authentic. Two ameplay much more realistic and energetic no more half way line goals like Fifa 2002 and no more magical bicycle kicks the game bring you down to earth after being an immortal.
Summary: I've bought and played many soccer games and this is the best. I have bought most of the other Fifa soccer games but this outdoes them all. The buying and seling of players is a real winner It is a great game for soccer lovers like me.
What good are bells/whistles when the gameplay stinks?

Summary: I've purchased a good number of soccer titles in the past, including more than one in the EA Sports FIFA family on multiple gaming systems. This is by far their most disappointing effort. EA Sports, usually among the leaders in inovations, options, playablility, and overall enjoyment, seem to have put all their efforts into gaming extras (ie: Spanish language, on-line playability, official licensing, nice graphics), largely at the expense of fun. The game is b-o-r-i-n-g.
Summary: I must say, FIFA 2004 is THE most disappointing game of the FIFA series I've played thus far. Granted, the graphics and gameplay have seen great improvement, but what I cannot comprehend is why FIFA 2004 appears to be going back in time. I mean, FIFA 2003 had a "create a team" option which is ominously missing in this "new and improved" game. Further, THERE ARE NO INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION.
Summary: This game sucks big time and here are the reasons: Users cannot control the pace of the game at different levels. No classic teams. No plethora of skill moves. Match stats are poor, so are the postgame highlights. All this was in fifa'03 and it was taken away. So, fifa'04 is NOT an improvement on the game. This has resulted in the game having no flair. Imagine Zidane executing the same skill move everytime he dribbles the ball. Sucks doesn't it.
Summary: the FIFA games feel more awkward to use with each succeeding year. The controls are more difficult to use and the abilities to score and run are almost impossible. Kicking free kicks near to the opponents goal end up with the ball heading into the stands rather than near the goal Where o where are the international teams ?
Summary: I received this game as a gift, so I cannot comment on the price value. However, I can give my opinion on some of the aspects of this game. First I went to select my favorite team in the world. Yet they were not there. They left out HOLLAND. How is that possible? When I played FIFA 2002 on my PC, at least they had Holland as a team if not having any of the actual players. It's ludicrous that they would leave one of the most fascinating teams in the world out.
Summary: Trash, all of it Thats what I think I would say when I see these kinds of reviews. All trash. Well most of em. This game has practically went beyond my expectations. I don't make sharp comments on every game. A game is a game. But this game, it blows every other game. Winning Eleven 6 is nothing compared to FIFA 2004. The faces looks so realistic, wow. Theres 4 modes: Play Now, Career Mode, Tournament Mode, and Practice.
Summary: FIFA 2004 was better than FIFA 2003 with no doubt. However, there is no World Cup in the tournaments which is pretty weak! EA Sports should add Holland and Japan to the national league. Otherwise, good graphics, alright gameplay, awesome career mode!
Summary: I waited, and waited for this game, I finally collapsed and dropped 50$ American for it. And the conclusion... let down! Fifa 2003 was alright, it could have used sometweaking, but this game is like a complete step backwards. The game play is slow and the controls take some time to get used to. The tournament mode has no world cup,or iunternational cup; and the graphics are almost worst that in 2003.
