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

    The controls have been totally overhauled, and you now have an unprecedented level of influence over the ball. [Dec 2002, p.160]

    The most realistic and technically advanced soccer game to date. It's almost too real. [Dec 2002, p.91]
  4. An excellent game that will appeal to any soccer fan who prefers realism to the fast-paced, high-scoring style of other soccer games.
  5. 83
    The new look, improved AI, updated rosters and better physics are definitely worth the price of admission.
  6. A new control scheme has been put into place that greatly affects how FIFA is played, but it doesn't quite deliver.
  7. A fun game. But it is not as good a simulation of soccer as it could be. Too much of the gameplay feels scripted, and although you can pull off some beautiful moves, the unexpected occurs far too seldom.

There is no comparison to FIFA 2003! 70% of the game has been revamped which means they only have 30% more to go through before next Xmas. Expand

    I really liked Fifa 2003. It lets you play faster, it a little bit difficult to score but is nice. The only think I did not like is that in I really liked Fifa 2003.
