Fifa soccer 2003 for the gamecube is one of the best football computer games out there. I know its about five years old now but the game play in this game is alot different and better then most of the other later versions. You can also get alot of the old famous footballers in the teams which is always a pleasure to play with a legend on your team.
One thing I do need to say is that game does tend to have a few glitches which is'nt neccesarely a bad thing, me and a few mates have had a right laugh when your playing a normal game of football and then suddenly one of your players goes into some kind of spasm and kicks the ball amazingly hard but on the other hand it does get annoying if your trying to have a seriouse game.
As Fifa Soccer 2003 is pretty much about 5 years old now, its not going to be up there with the tops games and therefore its going to be selling pretty cheap and so for a couple of quid this game is a great buy which you can get some serious fun out of.
This game is pretty old right now, which means that you can pick it up for a bargain price as football fans move on to later versions. However, this game has most of the famous footballers you will see in the modern versions, it has brilliant gameplay (in my opinion, better than the more recent ones) and the graphics are pretty good which means it is a real bargain if you have a gamecube.
However, it does not have all of the new players since the game came out and few are in the right team. The most annoying part of the game for me is the supposed "Commentary" describing what is happening, as there is only a limited number of phrases that is said and they soon become very annoying. Thankfully there is an option to turn this off. There is a multiplayer option, but if you are playing on the same team you will have difficulty as the controls seem to encounter problems.
The latest update to EA Sports FIFA Soccer series delivers improved ball physics, more aggressive AI, and a revamped control scheme. Footie fans will also be pleased to see a huge crop of teams and players along with 18 fully licensed stadiums. In FIFA Soccer 2003, you will need actual knowledge of the sport to succeed. This is a testament to the focus on realism that dates back to the beginning of this series. Mangoes will grow in Manchester before you can just charge down the field and score a goal in an EA Sports FIFA game. Computer-controlled opponents will show soccer smarts by changing strategy depending on the game situation. If they trail late in the game they will attack the ball relentlessly. When they have the lead, they will be much less aggressive, instead focusing on clock control.
