    Gr8 game, gr8 graphics, really really lifelike. Commentary is a bit crappy but the gameplay more than makes up for it. Gr8 game.

    Impressive game. Amazing graphics. Almost perfect except for no world cup, the controls are a bit nonresponsive at times, and there is no advantage to using the special moves. But those are nitpicking. This game is on par with or better than Winning Eleven (my vote is its better).

    The graphics are dazzling and well known faces are extremely detailed. The only downside is that some of the lesser known players faces are all the same. But that is nothing compared to the whole game - brilliant.

    I had the opportunity to play both Winning Eleven 7 and Fifa 2004. The true crown definitely goes to Fifa 2004 without question. The presentation, audio, commentary, and gameplay all combine to bring the gamer into the shoes of the best soccer players in the world. Sorry, Winning Eleven fans, the game just isn't as good as Fifa 2004.

    Forget all the rumours you may have heard cuz this game rocks. EA have finally got it right. The gameplay is top notch and for once plays as well is it looks which is nothing short of amazing!!

    After playing 24/7 and mastering FIFA 2003, I decided to hock it off on the Social Club DB and purchase the 2004 version. Hey man, this game did impress. I was glad I could still be my favourite player, Davids. There is so much more detail in this version that I can virtually see what jocks Davids is wearing. Davids mate!!

A final word of warning man, I made the fatal mistake of also purchasing Urban Street Soccer. I won my first match 9-0 without even knowing the controls. Suffice to say I haven't played it since.

    This game has made substancial imporvements from Fifa 2003. Despite the improvements, the game does hold some short-comings. The most difficult being the lack of control over "player runs". But all together a better game with more features. EA is moving in the right direction but still a year or two away from the ultimate game.

    The best version so far with a new career mode,cleaner graphics and a lot harder to score than previous editions ( o.k. not that hard! ).

  1. Ultimately, whether 2004 is, in fact, a better game than Konami's "Winning Eleven 7" on PlayStation 2 is debatable; what is clear, however, is that this is easily the finest game of footy to be found on Xbox.

    The Practice mode could've been more intuitive, like "Madden 2004's" minicamp mode. It was not only difficult to figure out, but also, ultimately, not even that helpful. [Dec 2003, p.86]
  3. But however much positive energy we lavish on FIFA all the areas that EA beats Konami on - bar online - are simply gloss. In a straight tussle between the games, we just don't enjoy playing FIFA as much as we do "PES3," and, for most of you, that's what matters.
