Even with the recent excitement generated by the US team’s dominance in the Women’s
World Cup, soccer still isn’t that large of a phenomenon in the States. American
soccer fans may not be able to get Monday Night Soccer anytime soon, but they
can at least get EA Sport’s FIFA series – easily the best line of soccer games
to hit both consoles and the PC. The latest of EA’s soccer simulators, FIFA 2000,
proves that the highly acclaimed FIFA line is still the best soccer series out
There’s more significance in the name FIFA 2000 than just the year. FIFA 2000
is truly the soccer game of a new millenium, and it has huge improvements over
FIFA 99. The most obvious improvement is the addition of the 12 MLS teams to
the already large roster of countless other leagues. Now fans of American soccer
can pit their favorite US teams against each other, or even against the superior
world teams. FIFA 2000 also introduces a few important gameplay additions that
provide so much added depth to the game you’ll wonder how you ever got through
FIFA 99 without them. Mirroring popular football and baseball games on the market
today, FIFA 2000 introduces icon passing from penalty locations. This makes
it much easier to assist would-be strikers from the corners – with a button
press you can guide a corner kick directly to your man inside the box, who is
waiting to head the ball home. Another feature you’ll learn to love is the pass-reliability
rating – a small colored arrow in the pass direction that changes color depending
on how well defended the pass recipient is. On defense, you can control your
team’s aggressiveness and formation on the fly, even so far as to make all your
defenders leave their man and run at the ball at the touch of a button. With
another touch of the button, they’ll quickly return to the default strategy.
All these additions are both well implemented and simple to use, enhancing the
gameplay instead of overly complicating it.
The basic modes you expect from the FIFA series are still intact. There’s an
exhibition, tournament, season, and practice mode. There’s also the create-a-player
mode, and you can even customize the teams to your preferences. You get to choose
from tons of options, including three skill levels. You decide on the weather,
the arenas, the camera angle, and more. There’s a pretty big jump between skill
levels; indeed, the amateur level – which the game defaults to – is a little
too easy for regular FIFA players, while the professional level – the next in
line – is almost a slap in the face to those used to scoring eight or nine goals
a game. All of this resides behind a useful interface, that admittedly, takes
some time to get used to.
The exhibition mode is simple enough – pick your teams, your stadium, the weather,
and other options, and then go for it. The season mode is a little more complex.
Once you pick your team, you can trade players, create custom players, play
around with your formations, and substitute your line around, all the while
playing against different teams as you progress on your way to the World Cup.
The tournament mode lets you set up a single elimination tournament. You can
create your own cup as the prize for the tournament mode or use one of the default
cups. The practice mode lets you select different practice scenarios to hone
the weak points in your game.The graphics are probably the most notable difference
from last year’s game. FIFA 2000 has gotten a stunning graphical facelift, and
it looks absolutely fabulous. All the player animation has been motion captured,
meaning that everything the characters do – from sprinting to tackling to bicycle
kicks – looks amazingly realistic. That, combined with much better textures,
accurate facial models, and variously sized players make this the best-looking
soccer game on the PlayStation. I haven’t noticed any polygonal breakup or overlap
– the graphics look that nice.
The FIFA series has always been known for its cool soundtrack, from FIFA 99’s
Fatboy Slim-composed theme song Rockafeller Skank to FIFA 98’s Song 2, performed
by Blur. This year the game has got more big names like Robbie Williams, who
performed an entirely original song for the soundtrack, to other favorites like
Reel Big Fish, and Apollo Four Forty, whose music pumps over the game’s menu
screens. In the game, however, the audio department is handed off to ESPN commentator
Phil Schoen and Women’s World Cup star Julie Foudy, who help call the action.
While Schoen and Foudy are both competent, neither is as exciting as the English
superstar soccer commentator and long-running FIFA veteran John Motson, who
is nowhere to be found in FIFA 2000, even though he’s mentioned in the credits.
Foudy is especially irritating, with a sugary, almost prepubescent voice that
doesn’t complement her cracks about player injuries and difficult saves. Otherwise,
the sound effects are simply incredible, with an extremely realistic crowd-reaction
system that accurately represents how fans would audibly react to the current
It’s almost as if FIFA 2000 were EA Sport’s attempt to Americanize soccer.
Banking on the success of the US Women’s World Cup Team by including Foudy,
replacing favorite Motson with American commentator Schoen, and introducing
the MLS teams, FIFA 2000 is the most US-friendly version of FIFA to hit shelves.
This gives FIFA 2000 an entirely different feel than previous versions of the
series, but it still delivers everything you’ve come to expect from FIFA. FIFA
2000 is more than just better than last year’s game, it is easily the best soccer
game ever to grace the PlayStation.
