Typical

Don Corleone, Amazon
29 September 2002
  • Summary: If we lay down all the FIFA's on the table and start playing one by one, starting from FIFA 98 to FIFA 2002 and FIFA World Cup, you will not be surprise to see that there are not much difference in them. U get enhanced graphics but not much difference from the previous releases, the only thing that impresses me are the music and the men graphics. Typically, there are some improvements in the movements of the players, but nothin fantastic.

World Cup 2002 , better than FIFA 2002?

Hitman, Amazon
15 August 2002
  • Summary: No, is the answer to that question. I feel that compared to FIFA 2002, the gameplay is very poor, and there is far too much color in. The graphics seem to be an improvement, but the game on the whole doesnt seem to live up to the FIFA standard. I would advise a potential buyer of a football game to veer towards the non world cup range, as this reduces the whole game-playing enjoyment and addictivness factor, because in FIFA 2002 you can buy and sell players, control the...

Don't believe the hype!

"dovyair", Amazon
14 July 2002
  • Summary: Unlike the description above, this game ONLY includes the world cup tournament, which was not included in FIFA 2002 (its biggest fault). FIFA world cup looks nice, but isn't nearly as good as FIFA 2002. The gameplay isn't as interesting, there aren't as many moves and even though its supposed to be specific for the world cup - rosters and players aren't up to date. Replays and and play-by-play are a lot better, but thats not why we play the game.

Slow in PS2

"cmadrid7", Amazon
8 July 2002
  • Summary: The game is pretty cool, the new stuff about lobbing and making runs is awsome, but you can only play wolrd cup mode, and in PS2 it is pretty slow, mainly when you are in midfield.

Few improvements since Fifa 1998

shyguy, Amazon
19 June 2002
  • Summary: This game is fun, but it has some shortcomings on realism. You can save player lineup changes, but can't adjust player stats. This means a mis-rated team like Senegal (ranked last in the game) or France (ranked 1) can't be changed. And a great goalie like Friedal will be playing like a third tier goalie.

Miserable Capitalism

Paul Han, Amazon
19 June 2002
  • Summary: Why is it that whenever a world sporting event takes center stage in the global theatre, software makers rush to put out a choppy, pieced-together, macrame of a game? One word: Money. The specter of free market Capitalism continues. IF you're an avid soccer fan, you might enjoy this one.

Disappointed.

"azfarshahid2000", Amazon
5 May 2002
  • Summary: I am actually a big fan of soccer games especially from EA Sports since Word Cup 98. This World Cup 2002 is not as good as I expected really! The graphic is just the same as Fifa 2002. But World Cup 2002 has no any other option than Friendly mode and World Cup mode. In this game, you can't customise your own team or players. You only have to select the teams that had been qualified.

FIFA World Cup-not as good as it looks

Paul Han, Amazon
29 April 2002
  • Summary: 2002 FIFA World Cup is not as good as you may think it looks. First of all, scoring is difficult. You have to control where you are kicking when you don't KNOW where you are kicking it. Secondly, at the main menu, you have four options. Friendly Match(Exhibition), FIFA World Cup, Settings, and Bonus Material. And if you don't already know, international teams only play the FIFA World Cup. So pretty much, you can't be the Dallas Burn or LA Galaxy or D.C. United.
