STAFF REVIEW of Fifa World Cup 2002 (Xbox)

Fifa World Cup 2002 Box art If your a "TRUE" fan of the other Football, Soccer, You will enjoy this game. This games short commings are overshadowed by the gameplay and action.


Gameplay is crisp and accurate, like past FIFA games. The ball handling, and finesse moves are dead on. Multi-player is big plus. The national liscensing is also huge. The pagentry and the excitement of the World Cup come through beautifully. Super accurate announcing, and awsome replays.


There are some great "Scenes" in this game, the celebrations after a goal by players, the way a player crashes to the ground after a hard tackle, the tackle itself are all wonderfull. Attention to detail is fantastic, and the stadiums are beautifull and vibrant. Now the down side,the "Clear" spaces in the overlaps and mouths and jerseys of the players is a little bit of a disapointment. Player renderings are familiar, but small details like hair and some faces leave alot to be desired. Once again it seems the XBOX potential was left behind.


Where visuals are disapointing in this game, the sounds of the World Cup are dead on. The cheers, and whistles at bad calls are amazingly accurate. The music score is very ot; like, and the player "Chatter" is very nice.


Suggestions:
Graphics need some seriuos help. A "Create a player" mode would have been nice, and bring back the indoor mode. Multi-Player stretches the long term playability of this game, but having only 2 game modes is a little thin.


Overall: 8.0 / 10
Gameplay: 8.0 / 10
Visuals: 6.0 / 10
Sound: 9.0 / 10
