Summary

An absolutely terrible game, with not even one good point...

The Good

Um.... Well.... Errr... Mmm... Umm... Well... Errr... Mmm.... NOTHING! OK, maybe the graphics are OK and are quite decent for the time.

But, if we look for anything apart from that... Umm... Well... Errr... Mmm....

Still Nothing.

This game is the worst sports game ever created for anything that handles games. Just HORRIBLE, just, the worst...

Now I'm gonna fill up the bad section, with umm... everything!

The Bad

Graphics: Well, I've always wondered how a player can kick a ball if his foot is in it... And how does a ball split into half when a player hits it with his head? And how do heads disappear of people, then magically come back? And how do goalposts almost completely stay still when the ball comes strongly into it?

Sound: WARNING: This game must be played with ALL speakers off... On a second though, this game must NOT be played at all...

And finally... Apart from the technical flaws, how can anyone enjoy this game, it's quite impossible actually! And finally, ONE tournament... I wonder, how anyone can play this!

The Bottom Line

AWFUL!!! SIMPLY AWFUL, unless you like horrible things... I'm sure this game has many fans, many brainwashed fans.

0/10

A final word: EA Sports is excellent, and the other FIFA games starting from 96 to the latest 2002 are just excellent, that's all I have to say... EA created one catastrophe while it created hundreds of miracles. WAY TO GO ELECTRONIC ARTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
