Darren Friedrich  "I Have Always Enjoyed Playing The Fifa Games After Migrating To From Kick Off On The Amiga.
It's A Very Easy Game To Pick Up But Still Hard Enough To Frustrate You At Times.
Plenty Of Teams To Choose From Although I Felt There Was A Lack Of National Teams. Seemed To Centre More Around The Uefa Teams And Lacked South American And African Nation Squads.
The Controls Are Very Good And Easy To Use. Graphics Aren't Too Bad. A Little Bricky And Unless The Player Has Very Distintive Features It's Hard To Know Who Is Who.
I Now Own "winning Eleven 5 Final Evolution" And This Beats Fifa 2001 Hands Down. So Many More Features And So Much More Realistic!"

Alexander Degnan  "I Hated It.

Yes, The Graphics Are Nice, Yes The Gameplay Is Easy To Get A Grip With.. Especially If You've Played The Previous Fifa Series As The Controls Are The Same. But After 30 Mins You Begin To Realise How Repetitive It Is. Running Down The Wing, Cross And Overhead Kick.. Over And Over Again The Ball Hits The Back Of The Net, Even On Professional Level. It's Fifa 2000 On The Psx With Updated Teams And Graphics... And The Graphics Arent That Slick. Replays Not As good As Fifa2000.

Rent Before You Buy."

Very Poor - an embarrassment to the console
Nothing spectacular, but still functional
Quality visuals that clearly show the power of this machine
Graphical masterpiece that is amongst the best currently available
Pushing the visual capability to it's absolute limit
This game has graphics that were never thought possible on this console

Makes little use of the CD capacity and audio hardware
Functional sounds that compliment the on-screen action
Quality atmospheric sounds that are highly effective
Music and effects that greatly enhance the overall enjoyment
Sounds like this were never thought possible on this console

PLAY-ABILITY (The way the game actually plays)
No fun to play, control is bad, gameplay lacks ideas
Offers moderate enjoyment but lacks a reason to play regularly
Quality title that has all the features you would expect
Top-notch title with nearly flawless gameplay
Little room for improvement and the best game of its type
Introduces new gameplay aspects not thought possible for this console

Wouldn't even buy for your worst enemy
Life-span would be a short rental period
Recommended purchase which should offer a weeks enjoyment
Has the potential to still be played regularly weeks from now
This will remain a popular game in your collection for months
You will enjoy playing this game occasionally even years from now
