  • Summary: As the first and only soccer game available for the GameCube, FIFA 2002 is an excellent start.

  1. If it weren't for the lack of an ability to adjust team strategy on the fly, pick your own teams for tournament play, or perform special dribbles with any sort of effectiveness, FIFA 2002 would be approaching perfection.

    This is the best crowd animation that I have ever seen.
  3. It doesn't have Madden's depth, but then, it doesn't have Madden's Mt. Everest learning curve, either.
  4. The players look amazingly real with fluid human like movement. The close up celebration scenes are terrific and mimic actual celebrations in the real game.
  5. 82
    With excellent controls, graphics, sound, and a huge variety of gameplay modes, this one is a game you should pick up.
  6. The only gripe I have here is that you have to double tap for special moves. [Feb 2002, p.87]
  7. 70
    World Cup–level graphics and realism have to struggle to make up for controls that keep getting yellow cards.

    Best soccer game in the FIFA line, ever. Solid graphics, deep gameplay. Menu screens are confusing, but that's about it!
