Summary: Being an experienced ISS gamer, it's fair to say that I bought FIFA 2003 on the assurance that Electronic Arts had re-built their game-play from new. More specifically, EA have introduced a shot power indicator, added a ball spin and power indicator to goal-scoring free kicks and significantly...
Summary: The new FIFA 2003 has everything that we have come to expect from the FIFA series. Outstanding graphics, neat presentation and endless list of real teams and players. 2003 offers a next level of player likeness with Henry, Beckham, Raul, Davids, Giggs and like looking better than ever.
Summary: Originally i though ISS was the best footy game around. I have been blown away by this game. It truely is like the beautiful game, the play is exceptional with goal line scrambles and deflections which reflect the real life of the game.
Summary: A few years back the FIFA series of footy sims were the gold standard, but slipped a bit recently. It looks like EA have done their homework and addressed the shortcomings of previous offerings with 2003.
Summary: Having never been a fan of the FIFA series and an avid follower of Pro Evolution Soccer on PS2 I played this with some reservations. However, I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the game, the graphics are superb with excellent animation and detail, clever commentry and atmospheric sound...
Summary: I was very impressed with FIFA 2003. All the big football stars are instantly recognisable. The graphics are excellent and the game has a wonderful play back feature showing all the highlights that went on during your game.
Summary: this game is reworked compared to the previous fifa games so that let the past put you off, the control system is much improved and now similiar to pro evolution. it is the best football game on the xbox by far and you will have a great laugh playing it with your friends.
It's no Pro Evolution, but it's certainly the best FIFA yet

Summary: Let's just get one thing clear-if you like great gameplay, and you can, get Pro Evolution. If, like me, you only have an XBox, Fifa 2003 will suffice adequately. Up until now, Fifa had always frustrated me with the ease with which goals can be scored, and in general just how unchallenging it is.
Summary: Upon first picking up the game you think "same old fifa, excellent presentation, dodgy gameplay", and indeed at first it does seem this way. The menu system is hardly dynamic, but it does the job, and includes some new features, including a new game type.
