  1. "FIFA 2003" is fully licensed and pretty to look at, but WTS has it beat in every other category.
  2. While EA continues to tinker with its gameplay, I think footie fans will enjoy World Tour's more traditional and consistent controls. [Feb 2003, p.98]
  3. With tons of game modes and a large number of customizable options World Tour Soccer 2003 will bring back soccer fans for more, even with it's short-comings.

    Although there aren't any online features or a training mode to teach newcomers the characteristics of soccer, the variety of game modes is astounding, and the gameplay is enthralling.
  5. If they can continue this pattern we just might have the best soccer game next year.
  6. A solid game that will appeal more to those who play multiplayer games. Although the single player modes aren’t bad, the simple gameplay won’t be able to compete with other soccer games on the market.
  7. Better than last year's game with new modes and some new controls but it's a long way from being the definitive version of the sport.

    Unparalleled depth and excellent gameplay. A huge improvement on WTS2002 and miles ahead of the FIFA line.

    Great gameplay and depth. Highly replayable with enough modes to keep you busy for months. Player attributes actually mean something. The only drawbacks are a poorly designed free kick system and sub-par sound effects. Expand

    Way better than FIFA and Winning Eleven, hands down. I returned those two the next day while I'm still playing WTS2003 non-stop. It would be a 10 if the referee wasn't so stupid as to send out a player for a dumb unintentional handball in the middle of the field and other minor details. The best soccer game out there, period.
