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?
Summary: The following reasons make FIFA Soccer 2004 a piece of crap: 1. No button configuration available. You can't configure your keyboard or gamepad to have a set of buttons that suit your preference, so you have to adjust to its default configuration.
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.
Summary: I have been buying the konami manufactured PES (Pro Evolution Soccer) titles, but this year I thought I'd try something new. Of course pes and fifa are big rivals and excel in different aspects of a football fame.
Summary: It's not all that bad. It's not great either. First of all, as soon as you start the game, set the game speed to full and change the camera angel to action, otherwise you will get very aggrivated. Once that's the done, the game speed is reasonable and the graphics are great.
Summary: In short, if this game had come out last year, and FIFA 2003 had come out this year, it would have seemed the more logical progression. FIFA 2004 is a clunkier, slower, more disorganized, less sharp game than 2003.
Summary: It may be trying to emulate PES.. but very soon PC users will know the difference between a real soccer game and some poor substitude which depends on official licenses to keep its fans. The demo for FIFA 2004 is one of the poorest ever.
