The addition of several new game modes adds to the vast array of options. Gamers can choose to play for any of the five continental Cups or take on the world for the grandest Cup of all. Other modes include the Career Mode, which challenges gamers to take inexperienced players and guide them to international stardom, and the Timewarp League, which allows players to compete against some of the greatest teams in history. Games are played in visually stunning and accurately recreated stadiums, filled with passionate fans supporting their team with real-life chants and club and country flags.
Developed by Sony Computer Entertainment Europe's London Studios, World Tour Soccer 2003 features the tightest, most realistic soccer action ever produced on PlayStation2. The game is easy to pick up and play but also challenging for the true soccer fan, offering intuitive controls coupled with the depth and complexity of the real sport. The incredibly smart artificial intelligence (AI) will allow gamers to use the full array of special moves and managerial tactics as they move the ball up and across the pitch in an attempt to score the game winning goal.

it has it's drawbacks -- weak sound and a poorly designed free kick system, to name a couple -- but 989 sports has done an excellent job of recreating the flow and pace of soccer. there is also depth to the tactics and on field movement of the players. you can play possession and build attacks with one-touch passing, or slash right down the wings. the crosses work very well and the fininshing is realistic.
the cpu has the tendency to become unstoppable, which can be frustrating, but if you keep your cool you can make tactical adjusments on the fly and weather the storm.
I would, however, recommend this product. In fact, I am about to send it to my nephew for his birthday so I can at least be competitive at some video game when I see him next time.
There are a slew of Modes, and more Competitions than you can shake a stick at. The most Innovative Feature is the new "Career Mode" Where you assume the role of a Young High School Team and Play through a School league,Topped off with the infamous "Bleachers" as the place for the audience to sit and root for their Team...AHH! Memories!.Read more ›
As it predecessor, the game shines mostly on gameplay. It continues to be a better simulator than FIFA, and it is deep and challenging.
The degree of customization is also something I like a lot. You can fool around a lot with this game creating custom teams, players, competitions, etc. It never gets old.
Some new problems arise, though. Menus navigation has become quite cumbersome, and loading times are ridiculously long. This takes a lot of fun away. And like its predecessor, the AI is almost impossible to beat on harder levels.
Overall, good soccer game, but not great.
And to be honest, I really enjoyed the game. The players had some moves and it was actually a bit fun bringing up your customized team from the school-boy leagues. Some of the players had real faces and did their trademarks well and the game-play is solid. When you're doing a career, you can buy players on the transfer market and you occasionally have bids come in for your players as well that you can accept or refuse. The BAD in the game, however, was above all else... the irresponsible load time. You end up waiting at least a minute and a half for the game to start. You also have some pretty horrible goalkeeping too. It's so bad, it doesn't matter if you use a 'cheap' keeper or buy the best the game has to offer. You'll occasionally see him watch a very, very slow ball roll by him and into the net. And finally, when you load up your game on career level, the game seemingly strips your attributes! So... you're 18 million dollar player has suddenly turned into a 100 thousand dollar player.
All in all, it's a solid game. Not bad, not great - it passes the time. The bad news is that the later editions of this game were hardly improvements at all to THIS one, let alone the 2005 edition. In fact, many believe the new one is even worse than the 2005 version. The load times are still too slow, etc. But on the positive side, FIFA is supposed to be better now and Winning Eleven 8 is out too.

Great game. I never had so much fun in my life. Everybody in my family loves it.Published on May 6, 2008 by Book lover
This game by 989 sports is not good. The main menu screen has little writting and is very hard to read. It is very hard to understand the game screen during pre-game selection. Read morePublished on November 1, 2003
