4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable - decent football game - best played with a mate, 16 Feb 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: FIFA Football 2002 (PS2) (Video Game)
I'm going to avoid the old argument about how realistic etc. this game is compared to others. Ultimately the game should be judged on how enjoyable it is and in this respect FIFA will not let you down.
I remember the original offering way back when on the Megadrive and I thought the game was suberb then and it only gets better. The usual flaws (too easy to beat the computer, too boring to just sit there and press X until you are ready to score, too easy to find sweet spots to score from) are all gone and what is left is a game which offers a good balance between difficulty to master and playability.
I basically wanted a game in which mates who come around and who are not experts can still offer a decent game. This is still it - in spite of the improvements to the passing etc. Be warned that if you are still stuck using the buttons and will avoid the analogue stick - well you kind of have to use it here!
And - the computer AI is tough ... the beginner 'amateur' level is pretty easy and it will take about a game or so before you started banging 6/7 past the computer but move up to 'professional' and world class and it almost seems unfair how good the computer passes (and wins balls in teh air!!).
If you're a fan of football/sport or decent two player games - this is one to have. It offers a little bit in the way of management simulation (I have managed to complement my Arsenal team with Thuram, Shevchenko and Figo!!) - but is ultimately an arcade game which is best enjoyed with four-six of you setting up a mock world cup.
