    Totally revamped from the ground up, and it shows. Great graphics and the best gameplay the series has seen in years.

    The most realistic and technically advanced soccer game to date. It's almost too real. [Dec 2002, p.91]
  3. A terrific game on this platform. EASports has nailed virtually every aspect of this game.
  4. 84
    While there's still plenty of room for improvement with a broader features set, FIFA 2003 is a superior game to "World Cup" that soccer fans should definitely check out.
  5. A definite improvement on last year’s version and while it’s still some way from perfection, it is the best and only proper offering this Xmas.

    At some point, being "the best soccer game in America" shouldn't be enough. [Dec 2002, p.130]
  7. Overall, the developers seem to have put more emphasis on the presentation than on creating a deep and immersive gameplay experience.

    Muy bonitos sus gráficos pero el control es penoso. Intentad cabecear un balón en vez de controlarlo. Es sencillamente INPOSIBLE.

    The ball control is ridiculously simplistic compared to 2002, a far superior game. In this version the computer does almost everything. For The ball control is ridiculously simplistic compared to 2002, a far superior game. In this version the computer does almost everything. For example shooting is done almost entirely done by the comp taking away all pride in good shots. I only hope they do a better job on 2004. For now Ill stick with 2002. A horrible game. Expand
