    Hey - it's not perfect. But if you're into a solid title that you can win or lose, and it depends on how well you play, this is for you. It's all about club teams, and the play by play is solid but nothing spectacular. Try it in spanish play-by-play for authenticity!! Anyhow, it's the best there is now, and it's really pretty good. Great replay value. =)

    Why get this when you can get Pro Evolution Soccer 2? (Winning Eleven) the difference is so obvious after playing Pro Evo 2 a lot then playing this. In short it sucks. Buy Pro Evo 2.

    Great game, much improved animation, gameplay, AI. Player faces not as good as last year but a good sacrafice for having over 250 teams compared to last years 60. Still needs a weather options mode, and a possible comeback of indoor mode.

    Found this very disappointing in comparison to the other EA titles. its become too hard to score, which takes away so much of the fun.. u end up just running around the pitch in circles. there are no extra features (unlike madden 2003), and i traded this in after 2 days.

    This is the best game in the world I love it. It is so realistic.This game changed my life. If this game is so good. Imagen how good the 2004 game will be. I'm good at this game it's not too hard it's not too easy. This game is awesome. Thank who ever made this game. This game deserves a 10.

    5 out of 10 seems fair. The graphics are top notch and the gameplay and A.I. is solid. Would have been a perfect game if only there was a Create a Player mode and being Canadian it's upsetting to see the Canadian team left out.

    Perhaps the most exciting alteration in gameplay is a ball that's no longer glued to your boot. [Winter 2002, p.108]
  2. Soccer fans will appreciate the added realism, but casual fans will probably see more of the same game as last year’s version.

    The best soccer game on the Xbox by a mile. [Jan 2003, p.74]
