  1. 'Is it as good as ISS?' We should say that no, it is not. On the other hand it is certainly a lot better than the majority of other footy fests that have tried to take on the big two.
  2. Top of the list has to be the excellent training mode...But for now, ignore this and stick with FIFA or Pro Evolution Soccer - they're much, much better.
  3. Besides gameplay modes (which are plentiful), the title comes up short in just about every category that EA’s “FIFA” 32-bit titles have been polishing for years now.
  4. Playable without being enjoyable, go and dig out one of the better FIFAs or unearth any ISS, because David Beckham Soccer doesn't live up to its namesake.
  5. If you have "FIFA" don't bother. [Oct 2002, p.150]
  6. The part that really matters - the way the game plays- feels rushed and incomplete, which is not something all too wise when the machine you're releasing it on has the likes of (wait for it) "Pro Evolution" doing the rounds.

    The gameplay is better than fifa 2001 because its harder to score and not so one sided when gamers play against the computer. But this game does not have all the 2002 world cup teams. Expand

    I think this is a really good game but the problem is that it doesn't look real I think Fifa 97,98,99,2000,2001,2002,2003 are better that this game. Expand
