    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. Quite simply one of the most exciting PC sports games ever created.
  5. 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.
  6. We have the fantastic visuals, sounds, and atmosphere on one side, and some obvious gameplay drawbacks on the other.
  7. This game looks great and its two play modes are fun. [August 2002, p.72]
  8. The graphics are stellar and the audio is arguably the best in any sports game to date. [Oct 2002, p.80]
  9. A rush-job, and certainly not worth your time if you already own "FIFA 2002." [August 2002, p.67]
