  • Summary: For those Americans who can't play "ISS Pro Evolution 2," or for those who absolutely must play as the San Jose Earthquakes, the L.A. Galaxy, or even Arsenal or Liverpool, we have EA's entry into the world of next generation footy.

  1. FIFA 2001 may not be revolutionary in gameplay or depth like Madden, but it's revolutionary in terms of graphics -- and it brings home the ultimate vision of soccer game creators better than any game before it.
  2. FIFA not only sports fantastic controls, but beauty to go along with it's other two outings ("Madden" and "NHL"). Is it just as good as the other two? You betcha!
  3. FIFA 2001 isn't flawless, but the game is extremely well rounded and it excels in every category.
  4. Hands down (pun intended) the benchmark for football games.
  5. It's pure FIFA, American style the way I've come to know and love it. Go Burn!
  6. The game is very realistic, keeping scoring down, but lost is some of the fun that comes from chaos in front of the net.
  7. Boy, am I a sucker! Not only is Fifa 2001 for the PS2 actually worse than the PC version, it's a complete bastardization of the Beautiful Game and one of the most shallow and boring games I have ever played.

    The game is great! There is not a whole lot more to say about it. The graphics are incredible, and the game play is stellar.

    Pretty fun. i can only score 1 way though (center it and bicycle kick it from the middle) which makes it a little boring. also i don'tPretty fun. i can only score 1 way though (center it and bicycle kick it from the middle) which makes it a little boring. also i don't like any of the camera views. you can only have it too zoomed in or too zoomed out. great graphics and good 2 player gameplay are what makes the game good.

    I use to Love this game. "Use to be" the best football game i have ever played. But when u come fom a N64 to a PS2. theres no argument. But I use to Love this game. "Use to be" the best football game i have ever played. But when u come fom a N64 to a PS2. theres no argument. But after playing PES4/WE8 Theres nothing more to say than. FIFA Can't make real football games. Soccer, as many of us call it, its more about getting possession and keeping it. fifa is like, 'lets run through ppl to get the ball. Tacklings gotta be realistic. and the ball.. pfft. what is it a bouncy ball or something. But like i said. use to be great. but now its not.. i never play it nemore.. neone want it? ill see it to ya.. hahaha.. also. don't turn around and say 2005 is better.. yeah it might be. but its still a FIFA soccer game. it's probably just got better graffics...
