From uk.playstation.com:
    All the boys and girls at the various game developers must really have to rack their brains to come up with good ideas for new titles, but perhaps none more so than sequels. You have a game that's done very well, or well enough to merit virtual offspring, and where do you go from there? You've lost the major impact of the original idea so now it's down to fine-tuning, and this is one thing that EA obviously have no problem with.

    The FIFA series has gone from strength to strength, always building upon the last to bring you the finest in football. FIFA 2001 is no exception. To help create this, their latest offering, 7 international footballers were used for motion capture to ensure fantastic realism. Edgar Davids, Lothar Mattheus, Paul Scholes, Thierry Henry, Gaizka Mendieta, Puval Kuka and Shimon Gershon were all on hand to shake their stuff and it shows.

    All the league and international teams are there, as are all the players. With so much choice you're almost spoilt, so go on, put the boot in.
