This was the third FIFA title in a little over a year. It incorporates 42 national sides, as well as 250 club teams from 12 different leagues, to play a complete true-to-life season, the preset Super League, or a league or cup of your own design. Formations and tactics can be set, and players can be moved between teams.

Gameplay can be viewed from multiple angles. Players have more animation than ever before, with new moves including sliding challenges and close-control trapping. Goalkeepers now have a level of human control.

Portugal lawsuit

Similar to Actua Soccer 3, Electronic Arts faced a possible lawsuit in Portugal for using player and team names without authorization from FutePro, the legal owner of them. While Gremlin's product was pulled from the stores, FIFA (which for the first time had a localized cover featuring national team and Fiorentina midfielder Rui Costa) continued to be sold as long as stores wanted to. There was no news of an agreement between both parts, but either EA paid compensation or FutePro decided to let the issue die fearing long and expensive legal procedures.
