  • Summary: The official soccer game of the 2002 Korea/Japan World Cup features new "Air Play" gameplay with intuitive one-button headers, volleys, scissor kicks, juggling and showboating. New player-to-player animations allow for agressive jostling for the ball on the ground and in the air. The Tournament Mode features a seven game series beginning with round-robin play, followed by playoffs leading to the final match with a progressive story line and a rising intensity as you advance.

    The best PC Soccer game available at the moment.
  2. This is a stunning PC game. It features real stars, with actual player features and characteristics, gifted and amazing action, and the joy of the best squaring off on the sport’s greatest stage.
  3. It keeps all the ingredients that have made Electronic Arts’ FIFA titles so much fun to play in the past, but at the same time adds some new, interesting elements to keep the title fresh.
  4. With the more realistic animations and televisual camerawork, together with the new passing and shooting techniques and individual star skills, EA can be proud of the fact that it is the best game in the competition.
  5. We have the fantastic visuals, sounds, and atmosphere on one side, and some obvious gameplay drawbacks on the other.
  6. This game looks great and its two play modes are fun. [August 2002, p.72]
  7. A rush-job, and certainly not worth your time if you already own "FIFA 2002." [August 2002, p.67]
