A fundamental change in the control of the ball results in more natural gameplay, with deflections, missed headers and scrambled goals reflecting the real nature of football. Dead ball situations are a pivotal part of the real game; FIFA Football 2003 incorporates a new interface that requires the level of skill and strategy that has allowed stars such as Roberto Carlos to shine in the real world. A new set-piece dynamic provides complete control over the power and swerve of free kicks.
All the great players look and behave as they do in real life, competing in all the top leagues and all the greatest national teams from around the world; FIFA offers you total licensed football with 16 leagues, 450 teams and 10,000 players.
In Club Championship Mode you'll be in competition with 18 of the greatest European teams. Feel the intense big-match atmosphere with all the star players, real stadia, real stats and your favourite club-specific crowd chants. Also, FIFA Football 2003's TV-style presentation features some of Europe's greatest commentary teams calling the action. All new half-time and end-of-match highlights let you relive every key moment.
EA have done their homework. The 10th year of FIFA doesn't just see the player names updated and few tweaks here and there--it's more of a mini revolution. There are two new modes of play, simulation and arcade play--one for the more tactical player who likes the fancy approach to play and the other for those more frenetic matches.
As usual, vast numbers of teams and players are included (still no Oxford Utd, though--Oxford Ed); all the big name players are instantly recognisable, Edgar Davids being one fantastic example. The tons of extra features include a new European tournament and loads of DVD clips. --Laurent S Hall
This is a great game to spend time and enjoy. The graphics are good and look decent on Intel 845 on-board graphics card also. The ball movements are natural. Read morePublished on 27 Jun. 2005 by The Explorer
