    Fellow gamers, It would be a welcome idea to hold your judgment solely based on the exclusion of XBOX LIVE. XBOX LIVE, contrary to popular opinion, does not make or break a game. You are supposed to submit a review based on overall gameplay, graphics, audio, and presentation. In addition, you should reserve judgment until you have actually played the game.

In addition, you should reserve judgment until you have actually played the game. Anyway, UEFA EURO 2004 is an improved addition of FIFA 2004 in all departments. EA Canada has added the necessary elements missing in FIFA 2004, including weather specific conditions, more special moves, improved AI response, realism and overall presentation. It is also nice to see Motson and Mccoist back in the booth for this game. Thanks for the consideration, Avid gamer. Expand

    Plays like the game should play. if you like the passing game, keeping it on the floor no problem. Even the old blackburn style of punting it up the field to the forwards works to a point. And if you have a star player give them the ball as much as you can as they make a huge difference with shooting, dribberling etr to the game, just like the real thing. Not quiet as could as pes3 but Plays like the game should play. if you like the passing game, keeping it on the floor no problem.

    I've been an avid EA FIFA fan since around 2k and Euro 2004 is a welcome but limited addition to the franchise. Euro is basically a souped up 2nd addtion of what FIFA 2004 should have been...game play is solid, scoring is much harder this time around (better AI), new through ball is welcome, but once again 1v1 moves are still hard to pull off...overall, the game is an upgrade from I've been an avid EA FIFA fan since around 2k and Euro 2004 is a welcome but limited addition to the franchise.

    Of the new moves, through-balls and crosses are much better than those in "FIFA 2004." [Aug 2004, p.86]
  2. A reasonably clinical package with a decent though not spectacular footy game somewhere under the glitz and licensing efforts, but you'd still be better off scouting around on the transfer lists for a better value signing. Not everyone's as much of donkey as Heskey.

    The 'new' simplicity makes for a fun and fast game that, courtesy of the excellent passing system and decent AI, finds a firm balance between real football and the arcade fun of a five-minute kick about. [June 2004, p.120]
