You'll need a hard-core machine to run this one well, but that's the only downside to an amazingly detailed, action-packed game.

Much of this review could have been written of FIFA 99. And we'll doubtless come in for criticism from some quarters for giving it yet another five star score. But while FIFA 2000 covers a lot of the same ground as its predecessors, it's still an essential purchase - there's simply no denying its classic status once again.

FIFA 2000 positively drips with authentic footballing atmosphere and if you add in a few mates and some assorted gamepads, you'll realise that this is one of the most addictive footballing experiences ever. FIFA 2000 is involving, compulsive and highly frustrating - just like the real thing! It offers a highly realistic, visually stunning and immensely satisfying game of football. You may own every game in the FIFA series prior to this one but believe me, you will positively kick yourself if you miss it.

It's almost as if FIFA 2000 were EA Sport's attempt to Americanize soccer. Banking on the success of the US Women's World Cup Team by including Foudy, replacing favorite Motson with American commentator Schoen, and introducing the MLS teams, FIFA 2000 is the most US-friendly version of FIFA to hit shelves. This gives FIFA 2000 an entirely different feel than previous versions of the series, but it still delivers everything you've come to expect from FIFA. FIFA 2000 is more than just better than last year's game, it is easily the best soccer game ever to grace the PlayStation.

FIFA 2000 kommer garanterat att sälja bra. Electronic Arts är till och med så självsäkra att de inte ens besvärar sig med att göra en version till Nintendo 64. Frågan är om de Nintendo-ägare som varit serien trogna därmed kommer att sluta att spela FIFA-spelen och hitta nya favoriter. Förmodligen inte. Det är nog mer troligt att uthyrningen av PlayStation ökar.

I am normally the biggest critic of these yearly sporting updates which are churned out simply to squeeze more money from the average punter. However I do believe that 2000 is probably the best FIFA soccer game to date. Of course that statement may only last until FIFA 2001 turns up next year. I suppose what you really want to know is that should you already own last years version is there enough improvement to warrant a further investment? Graphically... yes! Gameplay wise... it's more of the same! Regardless, it will sell by the droves and one thing's for sure, there will be another next year... and the next... and the next...

Ich hätt's nicht für möglich gehalten. Erstmals schlägt ein FIFA-Produkt das NHL-Pendant. FIFA 2000 sieht besser aus als NHL 2000, die Steuerung ist einfacher und gleichzeitig komplexer, die Gewichtung der einzelnen Spieler gelungen und die Atmospähre löblich. Gemeckert werden muss dennoch: Die Ergebnisse sind teils viel zu hoch, das Gesabbel vom ollen Dahlmann nervt und die Gesichter der Kicker sind nicht zu erkennen.

I vividly remember playing soccer games developed by EA Sports in the past. They were terrible on the PS console, until last year, when FIFA 99 came out of nowhere. This game is very similar to its predecessor, especially concerning gameplay. It's improved in the graphics department, which should make it better than FIFA 99, unless you're a fan of video game soundtracks. The compilation of music from last year's version was one of the best ever put together for a sports title. I think I've stressed that point already. Personally, I enjoy playing FIFA 99 for that reason, but it won't stop me from moving on to this one. I'm a huge proponent of updated rosters, and the addition of Major League Soccer, as well as classic teams, only helps expand the roster.

Always thorough with great attention to detail, EA Sports comes through for all of the soccer fans of the world. They continue to make each new edition in the FIFA series better than the last, proving that they are not just content to pass on new versions without particular consideration paid to graphics, gameplay, controls, and authenticity. If you have any desire to play the best soccer game on the market, FIFA 2000 is your first place pony.

While there is some room for improvement, FIFA 2000 delivers on almost every front and is a fast-paced, enjoyable, and challenging soccer game with numerous options and lots of depth. Though you may find yourself wishing FIFA 2000 offered even more, it is ultimately a must for any soccer fan.

A faultless piece of precision from a company that knows the genre inside and out. Quite simply the best football game out there and I can't see anything dislodging it from that position except perhaps next year's offering.

From great gameplay to a myriad of options, FIFA 2000 has it all. At the end I am left only with a request for more — more regular teams, more classic teams, more management options, and the ability to play more than three seasons in Season mode. FIFA 2000 comes highly recommended.

Hey, it's been a while coming, but the company previously known as 'motion capture casualty' has come full circle and-in FIFA 2000: Major League Soccer-recaptured the brilliance of its earliest football games. With last year's effort nearly there, the 2000 edition improves on a good thing, bringing the MLS franchise into the mix to better appeal to US fans of the sport. In a nutshell, the game plays superbly.

Gute Nachrichten habe ich zuhauf zu vermelden. Langfristig am wichtigsten ist sicherlich der endlich hammerhart einstellbare Schwierigkeitsgrad. Der Pfeil sorgt für ein gepflegtes Pass-Spiel. Die Abwehrspieler sind endlich in der Lage, ein Anspiel zu verhindern indem sie sich vor den Stürmern bewegen. Nur bei den Eckbällen decken sie ihre Gegner nicht konsequent genug, fast schon traditionell lassen sich so viele Tore schießen. Wie ich es von EA Sports gewohnt bin, ist die Präsentation auf höchstem Niveau, von den geschmeidigen Animationen, über die fantastische Grafik, bis zum fetzigen Sound. Einziger echter Kritkpunkt bleibt das immer noch populäre Herumgegrätsche.

Para quem jogou a FIFA 99, esta nova versão não trará nada de muito surpreendente. Mas se for uma verdadeiro apreciador de futebol e da série FIFA, com certeza não quererá desperdiçar a oportunidade de jogar ao melhor jogo de futebol da actualidade (e de sempre?). É caso para dizer: "It's in the game!".

Au final, FIFA 2000 est le digne successeur de la série qui a tout écrasé sur son passage. Plus beau, plus jouable et plus complet, tout a été retravaillé pour fournir le meilleur de la PlayStation. En attendant la réplique de Konami avec son ISS, FIFA 2000 est clairement le meilleur jeu de foot du moment.

Fifa 2000, c'est le meilleur jeu de foot pour PC à l'heure actuelle, de loin ; il est d'ailleurs probable qu'il conserve ce statut pour un petit bout de temps. Tout a été encore amélioré par rapport à la version 99, sans exception. Le résultat est suffocant ! EA Sports fait preuve une nouvelle fois de génie et de talent, de passion et de rigueur. Que nous réservent-ils alors pour demain ? Vous voici prévenus : à consommer de préférence avant fin 2000 ! ;o)

Prachtige verzorgde graphics, enkele kleine maar goede aanpassingen en de opvallend goede speelbaarheid laten deze versie met kop en schouders boven de concurrenten uitsteken. Zelfs op de minder krachtige PC's.

På den negativa sidan märks väl framförallt att det egentligen inte är särskilt stor skillnad mellan det här och föregångaren. Jag kan inte direkt peka på vad som skulle behöva förbättras, för grafiken går inte av för hackor, och spelkänslan finns helt klart där. Trots att spelet är lite tuffare nu, finns det ändå gott om likheter med 99:an. Musiken passar inte heller mig, men det kanske är mig det är fel på. Fel är det också på introt, i alla fall på så sätt att det inte är lika imponerande som i kusinen som utspelar sig på is. Det är inget man tappar hakan över, om ni förstår vad jag menar. Hur som helst är det här ett riktigt bra spel. Behöver ni en tydligare köpsignal än så?

Nachdem EA Sports mit der exzellenten Edel-Eishockeysim „NHL Hockey 2000“ gezeigt hat, wie ein fast perfektes Sportspiel auszusehen hat, ist nun des Deutschen liebstes Freizeitvergnügen an der Reihe. Wer aber ein ähnliches grafisches Feuerwerk erwartet, wird ein wenig enttäuscht sein.

Schon erstaunlich, wie es EA Sports trotz der Mängel und nerviger Details (Stichwort: Kopfballstärke des Computers) geschafft hat, ein derart faszinierendes Sportspektakel auf die Beine zu stellen. Gut, allzuviel hat sich gegenüber der 99er Version nicht geändert; ein paar Dinge wie die Angriffstaktiken wurden sogar kurzerhand gestrichen. Doch nirgendwo wird Fußball am Bildschirm so zum Erlebnis wie bei Fifa 2000.

Oh, dus je hebt FIFA 99 al? So what! Die van 2000 kent weer voldoende verbeteringen, updates en andere aanpassingen om 'm zeker te checken. Het begint de realiteit in ieder geval aardig te benaderen.

Fifa 2000 is ongetwijfeld het beste voetbalspel dat er momenteel op PC verkrijgbaar is en dat op zich is al voldoende om het weer aan te schaffen. Toch had ik eerlijk gezegd nog iets meer verwacht dan wat het nu geworden is. Wie weet, misschien doen ze het wel met opzet! Anders heeft het toch geen zin meer om Fifa 2001 te maken!

Trotz aller Meckerei macht FIFA 2000 einen Riesenspaß. Kein Konkurrenz-Fußballspiel erreicht auch nur annäherend die Spielkultur, die Abwechslung, den Tiefgang und die Spannung. Wenn für 2001 noch die aufgeführten Mankos korrigiert werden, ein Internetmodus und mehr Statistiken mit einfließen, dann freue ich mich jetzt schon auf den Nachfolger. Nur: Was gäbe es dann für FIFA 2002 noch großartig zu verbessern?

La série des Fifa est l'une des plus appréciées des amateurs de foot. Et cette petite cartouche étonne, avec plusieurs dizaines d'équipes et des tas de modes de jeu... On n'est pas prêt d'en voir le bout, d'autant que les sensations sont bonnes. Mais, le gros défaut de ce titre, c'est sa réalisation graphique. Ici, on devra se contenter du minimum légal et, si les noms des joueurs sont authentiques, il faut un effort d'imagination certain pour reconnaître les bonshommes de pixels qui courent sur le terrain... Mais bon, l'essentiel, c'est de s'amuser et, avec ce Fifa, on est servi.

If you're wondering which game is better, Fifa 2000 or Total Soccer 2000, they are both pretty good games so it is basically down to which style you prefer. I like both views, but I think that Total Soccer 2000 just nabbed it in my view. What won it for Total Soccer, or actually lost it for Fifa, was generally not being as playable in the actual games. Everything seemed much more hectic and much less smooth compared to Total Soccer, even after playing for a while it never really seemed to come close in playability terms. Although the inclusion of the indoor game did recover Fifa 2000 some of the lost ground, as it was a nice change from the usual 11 per side outdoor matches you normally get. Still you can't really fault either game too much, if they could just put all the great features of both games into one, you’d then have something to shout about. It’s worth getting, but I would consider Total Soccer 2000 before you buy.

Pretty much everything has been discussed, so it’s time to wrap up, recommending FIFA 200 to all those who like an entertaining game of PC soccer and don’t mind a few flaws. If you have FIFA ’99 or ’98, don’t bother getting this one; you can’t lead Tonga to the World Cup or play in the Portuguese leagues. If you don’t, however, this will be a worthy addition to your retro-soccer library. Just don’t forget to get PES 7, too.

Egentligen borde valet mellan Fifa 2000 och andra fotbollsspel vara lätt. Fifa-spelen är av tradition störst, bäst och vackrast och årets upplaga är inget undantag. Inget fotbollsspel är större, har bättre grafik, snyggare rörelser eller bättre spelkänsla. Så är det bara. Men tyvärr är det inte så enkelt. Fifa 2000 är visserligen bra, men faktum är att det inte skiljer sig så himla mycket från 1999 års upplaga. Och råkar det vara så att du redan har Fifa 99 får du ut mer av att köpa ett annat fotbollsspel. I så fall rekommenderar vi FA Premier League Stars vars stjärnsystem, där du kan förbättra dina lag, är väldigt kul. Har du däremot inget Fifa-spel sedan tidigare är det bara att köra hårt. Då är det Fifa 2000 du vill ha.

The perfect difficulty, good graphics, and great gameplay make this a good game; the mechanics keep it from being a great one. One more good thing about it - as with all EA Sports games, you can use the Super Game Boy to play on the big screen. If you like soccer, give this on a try, just for kicks.

Ну вот, самое основное мы разобрали. Наверняка какие-то моменты упущены, ведь о таких играх как FIFA можно писать целые книги. Напоследок хочется сказать, что, несмотря на заметную сыроватость, игра все равно замечательна. Улучшения в части играбельности и игровой графики, отличное звуковое и музыкальное сопровождение + множество интересных функций наверняка сделают FIFA2000 кумиром футбольных игроманов на весь следующий сезон. Патчи от EASports и самостоятельных авторов смогут подправить некоторые особенно явные недоделки вроде шероховатости составов, а чемпионаты по сетевым и модемным играм еще сильнее привлекут геймеров к этой игре. Все только начинается!

There really isn’t much else to it. All the original elements remain, the enjoyable player transfer system, the players still look like they’re wearing paper masks of the players they’re supposed to be and EA is set for another Christmas hit thanks to their promotion advertising. FIFA admirers we may be, but it’s the fans who lose out because that Gascoigne magic and invention has deserted EA Sports, as it did our fallen England star prior to World Cup ’98.

FIFA 2000: Major League Soccer is the best soccer game I’ve ever played. The addition of the MLS license along with all of the standard great FIFA content that’s become a mainstay of the product line truly puts this year’s edition in a class by itself. Couple that with a wide assortment of graphical, control and content enhancements and you’ve got a title worthy of our Reviewer’s Choice Award.

Eure Kicker sind detailliert dargestellt, lassen sich jedoch nicht sonderlich genau steuern, wodurch das Spiel schnell in ein „Kick and Rush“-Gebolze ausartet. Im Hallenmodus kommt erschwerend hinzu, dass man mit Schüssen aus dem spitzen Winkel so gut wie immer ein Tor erzielt. Durch diese Mankos wird dem Spiel viel an Spielspaß genommen. Mit DSF Fußball (alter Titel: Total Soccer 2000) ist ein deutlich besser spielbarer Konkurrent erhältlich.

The game could have been a modest success, as it has scores of teams to choose from, a bevy of options, and even an indoor soccer game that plays ten times faster than the regular form. But undercutting all of these features and ultimately sinking FIFA 2000 is poor control that makes the game harder to control than it needs to be.

Game Boy ColorIGN
In the end, the only way the game manages to be fun is if you imagine it as a sort of hybrid rugby-soccer game where the object is slide-clobbering your opponents. Occasionally, since it is rare, it feels really good to score as well. But I felt as if I were triumphing over the controls more than anything. The straight dope: FIFA 2000 is a weak effort that does not live up to its name. A total overhaul should be in order if FIFA 2001 is planned.
