"If you want to play a top-notch soccer simulation there's
no other game of this type on the market that can rival the quality of the FIFA
series. With that said, it becomes clear that the decision on whether or not
you should buy this game becomes a mere question of determining if this year's
installment brings anything radically new over the previous one that should
make you want to go out and get it.
"FIFA 2003 is concentrated solely on league
championships, and of course the Euro League. Sure, there is still a choice of
selecting the US League (MLS) but the accent in this game is entirely on the
European big boys like Real Madrid, Manchester United, AC Milan, etc...Being a
long-time FIFA fan I had a bitch of a time getting used to the new controls -
but once I did, I realized that the game actually plays much better like this.
More emphasis is put on individual (one-on-one) skills (dribbling) and accurate
through passes, which definitely adds a bit of flare to the match, especially
when your star players start spinning and dribbling defenders left and right -
"Overall, FIFA 2003 doesn't bring many novelties over its
predecessors - no radical changes have been introduced. As I said, the gameplay
might even seem retro at times. Still, the introduction of more intuitive
controls and the emphasis on fancy dribbling and short passes might bring some
of that Latin American flare to the game that was definitely absent from FIFA
2002. It's all a matter of tastes really, if you're going like the new gameplay
style or not."
