    Change the set-piece system !!
    when i get a foul somewhere near the opponent's goal, my player can do nothing but shoot the ball directly to the goal, which has nothing to do with realism !!
    also for the corner kicks, i don't have to be limited to 3 players! it's like you tell the player "i want you to deliver the ball to player number 2" and he says "OK you got it" and that's it !!
    in reality, a corner-kick taker would see who's available and who's the best man to give the ball to, and then estimates the distance and the power that he should kick the ball at to perfectly deliver the ball to his mate. STOP AUTOMATIC THINGS !!

    through-balls, it was a nice idea to add it to Euro 2004 but it needs to be refined since most of them go to the wrong way and get interupted by the opponent. sometimes, giving a normal pass works better than giving a through-pass while the opposite should work better!!

    i was playing a semi-final game against Portugal (i was france), and i won 7-0 in world-class level, and i was disappointed !! it's only because i know how to get the ball from the opponent, which is pretty easy !!
    EA should make it TOO MUCH HARDER to get the ball from the other team.

    make each player different !!
    let super players super
    let good players good
    let normal players normal
    let poor players poor
    AND LET US FEEL THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THEM !!

    Last but not least,
    EA's main goal should be "how to let people enjoy the game even after a year or two"
    EA, you don't wanna lose the competition against Konami !!!

      As somebody mentioned before, it has to be the sloppiness.

      Everything seems to be left half-done. Every year something nice and fancy is thrown in, but it isn't finished. Off the Ball sounded great, looked dandy in the preview videos, but in the actual game it just didn't work (reasons in previous posts). Same thing with this career mode, sounded great but when injury tables are awry, trading isn't possible for SA teams and not to mention the whole Champions League fiasco, it loses the point. It is frustrating! Interface is stubborn! Due to three different generic faces, every non-faced opponent looks the same! Appearences are wrong, feet are wrong, everything has some small or larger mistake. If there were one or two bugs I wouldn't care, but when absolutely nothing works as it should I lose my temper. I know that game developing is hard work and EA has loads of talented employees, but all this sloppiness just makes one imagine the programmers eating donoughts and playing Scorched Earth all day. Why do the NBA, NHL and NFL series always compete for the top spot game of their respective sports, but FIFA hasn't been near the podium for years? And another thing, why do all the nice features appear in the other EA games years before FIFA? NHL had seasons with all the '04 career mode features way back and NBA '96 had differing player heights in 1995! ON THE SEGA MEGADRIVE! Might be small things but, seriously, don't the different EASports divisions talk to each other and share ideas? I thought buying games from a big company with a wide array of titles ment that you could expect an all around high standard of work because the different programmers communicated and brought their knowledge together in order to lessen mistakes and to create a creative and technological edge over competitors, but no! I'm not even going to start to ponder on the reasons why the FIFA series lays so astray from the other titles.

      FIFA hasn't been FUN since '98. I have found myself enjoying skateboarding games and FPS's even though I thought I disliked the whole genres. Why? Because they have few bugs and the characters do what I tell them to. Currently I am enjoying NHL '97 on my SEGA Megadrive/Genesis. It is fun. All the features work as they should, and because my players do what I want them to I am not annoyed at problems like inexistent power play formations. Every day the opponent or I score a neat goal in a way I haven't witnessed before. In the FIFA series it took two days to see all the different possible ways of scoring.

      EA, why don't you just release a basic Sensible Soccer clone with no bugs and all the features working, and start building a new series from scratch? The current development of the FIFA series reminds me of my high school art projects. Nice shades of colours splashed on to canvas three hours before the work was due. I just barely passed, but that was my only goal. Is it yours as well?

            Buy me a PS2 or a new PC with a DVD drive and it's a done deal. And I have played PES countless times, but that relates to the point of this thread in no way. PES is still inferior to NHL '97, I just scored by shooting through the legs of the opposite goaltender. With my goalie (Hextall, of course!). From behind my goal. Can't see PES bringing the house down like that!

                exactly,,, i will never believe in FIFA games again unless FIFA games will be made by anyone but EA.

                -half-completed games
                -false promises
                -overhype
                -crappy gameplay

                i will not invest my money into that my friends.....

                hey it may not be EA's loss to not have me as a customer, but it SURE IS MY gain!

                  Yeah, I'm studying (just a basic introduction to) marketing right now and it is needless to say that whoever is in charge of bringing out FIFA has broken every rule in the book. I could do a whole case study on how not to produce and market a product. The problems start from being dishonest to the customers, but the worst thing is the purposeful lifting of the customers zone of tolerance and after that releasing a game that falls below that zone. It just makes no sense. Also from the examples in the book, I can't find one marketing or production strategy that would fit with the way the company in charge of FIFA handles things (unless they keep their production costs very low, which I doubt). Examples like these are the reasons people think "I am just a student, but I'm sure I could do the job twice as well!" And having dimwit students around the world thinking they can do EA's job better than the original employees must mean something is terribly wrong.

                    one big thing that has to be improved is when you shoot a ball with the right inner foot the ball cant make a curve to the right side!! same with the other foot thats a big fault

                      Ny8La8 & ronaldo9:

                      Read the rules guys, this is to put your points of view about fifa and what has dissapointed you and how would you make it better, not to promote your 'beloved' pes game, so stop comparing them only to say fifa sucks.

                            you made a great post conry. telling everything truth that our feeling right now. i use to play fifa since RTWC 98 until Euro2004. i really enjoy the RTWC98, give me a lot of fun with so many county i may choose even Malaysia~!! last time i remember i like to use Malaysia to win World Cup before i enjoy every series until the worst i can find is FIFA2004. crap gameplay, full of bugs, terrible interface, great graphics on specific player but generic face player are all the same, less choice make the game look all the same.

                            i see no reason why we want to purchase a game with RM100++ (since i from malaysia). wasted and not worth at all. and i seriously not understand why EA wil allow this kind of game release. out of standard...aren't they not testing the game before it release? from book we also study some project management rules and theory, every project must be testing and testing only can release or implement. aren't they just can't understand this simple thing??? with user involvement, gathering information, analyst, design, program, testing, implement this simple life cycle project management they just not understand. so i suggest they should go to take a computing subject call project management or SAD (system analysis and design) before they start implement a game...

                                The release date is awful also. The season starts in August and then have the game come out in October. Every other game EA release comes out before the sport starts. The thing that sucks is that the game actually ands up comin out in the middle of november. PLZ sooner and give us the CC so we can fix anything that occurs after that.
