    Surprisingly pretty good and a decent lifespan.

    A pretty poor excuse for a football game. The only thing to really commend it are the video extras on the actual tournament itself. The gameplay is simply really bad. The speed, movement, and passing are all too slow, there is little variety, and with the exception of a few skill moves for star players, it's just plain boring.

The gameplay is simply really bad. The speed, movement, and passing are all too slow, there is little variety, and with the exception of a few skill moves for star players, it's just plain boring. Competition mode is more of the same, extending basic tactics, managment skill and injuries over a tournament period. There is little excitement or anticipation of the big games. It's nice to be able to play a full 90 minute game (unusual for football video games), but since the play is so dull it just prolongs the tediousness. Not even fit for landfill. Expand

    Great game! the new passing system gives you more control and allows you to play some of the best (european) football on this planet!

    The matches all feel important, which is totally cool in a World Cup setting. [May 2002, p.133]

    Probably the coolest new feature of 2002 FIFA World Cup is the inclusion of juggling. A player who masters juggling can truly be devastating on the field.
  3. 2002 FWC suffers from a lack of teams, little weather and time of day conditions and the frustrating inability to change the stadium and match duration while setting up a game, this has to be done in the options.
