    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'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.

    After I bought FIFA 2001, I spent 2 hours playing it, and then I went quickly to buy "ISS Pro Evolution 2"! This game is sluggish. Except for some good graphics, a relatively big team database with some real football kits (a thing which I like a lot) the game is not much enjoyable. You can easily score, and when you do so, you have not that nice feel of glory.

If you want some really good gameplay, opt for ISS2, a really worthy purchase, not like this one. Bad EA!! Collapse

    I actually give this game a 9.5. I just picked up the game yesterday and found playing it for the first time that the controls were not too complicated and easy to use -- a big Plus ++++. I would like them to go back to the indoor option again as in FIFA 97. It was a real suprise and a plus to see about a quarter of the Israeli Pre teams in the game but I would also like the inclusion of I actually give this game a 9.5.

  1. Even though the gameplay is up to par, the graphics need to keep up with the times.

    I can honestly say that FIFA 2001 is a damn fine game without any guilt or remorse. The animations are great, the sense of speed is solid, and the overall sense of the game is comprised of refinement and depth.
  3. It's not for those seeking deep simulation style 'football' but it will do for everyone else.
