Description

Premier League Stars is football game from EA released just a few months before FIFA 2000. The two games are quite similar but Stars is a bit more pacey and more action than the more realistic FIFA. Whereas FIFA has several leagues the Stars game has focused on the English Premier League and it is full licensed with all the real clubs, kits, stadiums and players. The most unique feature in Stars is that it is using the Stars concept which means that you collect stars when winning matches, scoring goals and similar. The stars could be used to improve the players in different skills such as passing, shooting and tackling.

Trivia

Rule inaccuracies

Remember the infamous goal trick in FIFA International Soccer where a player placed in front of the goalkeeper, when he is preparing to kick the ball, heads it as soon as it's kicked? The trick is back in Stars 2000 - the ball usually deflects low and short and the goalkeeper takes a dive, leaving enough room for a goal or a star goal opportunity. Stars 2001, on the other hand, uses the real FIFA regulations: if a player cuts the ball when the goalkeeper is kicking it, he gets a yellow card.
