  1. Not to be outdone by "Winning Eleven 6," EA Sports has pulled out all the stops and created a soccer game that is second to none... I dare you to find a soccer game where the ball moves so dynamically and realistically. [Nov 2003, p.108]
  2. Sports fans will enjoy the level of off the field depth and control scheme depth here.
  3. The game doesn't make any giant advances, but why mess with perfection? [Feb 2004, p.149]
  4. Though some of the new features will inevitably take you a while to get used to--and there's still plenty of room for improvement--it manages to be both enjoyable and challenging.
  5. The Off the Ball controls don't entirely solve the "magnet ball" feel of the franchise, but they go a long way to used space in your offensive attacks. [Nov 2003, p.157]
  6. FIFA's Off-the-Ball control not only increases your offensive potency tenfold but also provides hardcore soccer studs with an added level of gameplay they've been beggin' for from the series. Plus, no other game of footie has such stellar graphics or electrifying stadium atmosphere. [Dec 2003, p.204]
  7. Even with its overly ambitious new 'Off The Ball' interface the FIFA series is still a long way from capturing the true essence of the beautiful game. [Dec 2003, p.127]

    Compared to 2003 this game wasn't nearly as good. I admit the set pieces and new off-ball controls are great. However game speed isCompared to 2003 this game wasn't nearly as good. I admit the set pieces and new off-ball controls are great. However game speed is definatley a factor; you aren't even able change the game speed and its much slower than 2003. Collapse
