Summary: One reviewer states that the game is too easy. Yes, the game starts on an easy setting. But simply turn the difficulty to Pro, and you're in for a challenge. Undoubebly a great football title. Like most EA football games.
Excerpt: Despite EA Sports? annual/biannual unleashing of Fifa clones, I?d heard some good press about this one, tested it in a games store and just had to purchase - what an excellent game I have bought! After an intriguing prologue and introduction comprising of various fascinating football moments and a classical orchestra, one is welcomed by an authentic official Korea Japan pre-menu screen, with a spirited flashing ?press start? animation. I?m in.
Summary: When I initially heard that a Fifa title was being released on my beloved XBOX I was delighted, I knew I was going to get something that had a superb build quality to it. Then after my first play I was mightily disappointed, I seemed unable to head the ball and my passes always went astray of their target. Then with practice I learnt how to get my passes to go the correct player and my striker to head that wonder goal.
Excerpt: I purchased FIFA 2002 World Cup after reading a lot about it. I also purchased it because i had and really enjoyed World Cup 98 on the PSX. After becoming slightly bored of PES i needed a new football game. FIFA 2002 was supposedly crap and This is Football definitely was crap. I was in need of a lifeline, then along came FIFA 2002 World Cup. I was saved! The graphics are superb, with the player faces looking very realistic.
Excerpt: As another World Cup approaches, another official Fifa game gets released. 1994, 1998 and now again in 2002 ? and this version?s fantastic. Maybe it?s just me, but I?m sure you?ve noticed a great improvement in EA sport?s games recently & with the latest incarnation of the most popular sports game in the world you will certainly not be disappointed. The first thing you?ll notice is the superb visuals.
Excerpt: I am not a huge sports sim fan, I tend not to like playing them as I would prefer to play it in real life, But... The game starts with a beautiful intro using actual video footage and real live sound, not some of the computer generated doodah that's around nowadays. Then up comes a screen with the annoying press start... "I've already pushed start you glorified doorstop" you yell at the screen, and then five options appear.
Summary: Amazing graphics and excellent game play makes this one of the best footballing games I have ever played. You just get on with it. No hassle, just get on the pitch & play. It's smooth, fun & will have you hooked in no-time! Games like this make you feel glad you bought an X-box.
XBOX shows off ultimate capabilities with new fifa game!

Summary: Well, I am truly speechless. This game is spectacular. The PS2 version of this game is totally outclassed by the beauty that is the xbox. For starters, with previous footie games on any console, often the loading time was obscene and I talk from experience with the likes of World Cup '98 on the PSX taking a whole 2 minutes to load. This is not so with xbox. No problem, no worries whether the console has actually stalled or frozen. Now the game.
Summary: in the past i have been unable to sit and play fifa titles because of the hopeless a.i and the sloppy looking in game graphics , but with this xbox version all the problems i have encountered with previous fifa titles seem to have gone . superb graphics,sound and really impressive gameplay all add up an xbox game all should own, especially seeing as there are'nt that many games available, in short go get this game and prepare to be impressed
