All the speed, style and passion of the world's game come alive in FIFA Soccer 2003. Take to the field and battle it out against the toughest teams from around the globe. This is soccer gaming that lives by the rules of the real sport and puts you in a world of true soccer detail and culture. Control the ball and you control the game.
FIFA Soccer 2003 lets you play with all the best clubs, players, and national teams. The Club Championship highlights the top 18 club teams with intense detail, including team-specific stadiums and chants. You will have total ball control: use your feet and head to control the ball like never before. You will also be able to use free kicks and corner kicks to set up a shot or even score directly. Computer opponents will adopt tactics based on the real game situations.

Other improvements: Less repetition, e.g., goalie kicks no longer go exactly the same place every time. Better AI, especially in its responsiveness to game situations, e.g., throw everyone up-field if one down late in the game. Easier controls outside the game, e.g., choosing teams, team management, playing a whole season. I really like the right stick free-form moves, especially knocking the ball forward (great fun with Ruud Van Nistelrooy) Feels more like a broadcast game, with better replays and half-time/end of game highlights. Graphics are improved, overall. I like the ability to pressure a player on defense. My uncontrolled players on both offense and defense spend less time doing either nothing or the wrong thing. Kick it randomly up-field and it won�t magically go to one of your players.
Several minuses: I find headers really hard to manage, and understand they might not even be possible if you are unmarked. The default camera angle (combined with everything being a bit smaller) sometimes makes it hard to see exactly what is going on and who is where, especially in the goal square. I haven�t explored the other available angles in enough detail to see if one of them might be better. What happened to the tutorial segment and the bloopers?! The new announcer is fine, but nothing more. What happened to Andy Gray?!
Overally, if you liked 2002, you�ll probably spend an hour adjusting to the new controls & gameplay (I used Manchester United to take on Rapid Bucharest, so my ego didn�t get totally slammed while I did so). After that, you�ll probably really enjoy it. Your mileage (kilometerage?) may, of course, vary.
Some flaws. First of all, the controller setup is kinda confusing-sprint is changed from triangle to R1, etc. Second, it is nearly impossible to score on long-range shots. The AI goalies have superhuman abilities which will stop even the most brilliant shots. You can almost never score unless the ball is 20 yards or less away from the goal. Third, the pass button doesn't have a power meter so all you can do is hope your passes have enough pace to get to your teammates. Finally, the headers in this game are very poor. You hold down triangle for all of them, eliminating any differences between passing, clearing, and shooting headers.
Overall, this game is very realistic and well-made. EA still has a ways to go though. They need to expand as well as they do on other sports games, i.e. Madden.
~Eddie Pope is one of the worst players in the game-42 overall!!!
~No different modes, i.e. practice, training, create-a-team/player
~Once you complete a season, your team is gone and you have to start a new one. This means no off-season, player development, etc.
~Where's the professional Dutch league? Where's the Holland National Team!?!? What's going on there EA?
good game though, best fifa game so far. I recommend it to everyone, especially those who know how soccer is really played.
