    Euro 2004 ... anyone know anything?

    It would be very unlike EA not to try and capitalize on the swirl of hype (and significant commercial opportunity) around Euro 2004. Wonder, to that end, whether a game will be released? I remember I enjoyed the last one. Dream a little dream, but imagine if they threw in the African Cup...

    Names in Game Thread

    This might seem a little ambitious or daft, but I really dig having a side where Motty announces the player's names. Don't know if this is shared by the rest of you, but I find it really adds to the overall experience when you field a side with all specific names, I am considering making a...

    Suggestions for making the leap?

    I've been super-slow to catch on to FIFA 2004 (probably only played about 10 hours total.) Is there a noticeable difference between semi-pro and pro? Any suggestions for making the small jump between levels?

    A review, after some play

    Might seem a little late to do it, but this is the time of year I usually give up on this forum, save on checking back for the Creation Centre release, so I thought I'd give my 10 cents worth on the game for anyone who is interested or maybe thinking of FIFA 2004 as a gift. Gameplay -...

    Logitech Wingman Rumblepad Problems

    Don't know if anyone is sharing in this problem and can help? I have a Logitech Wingman Rumblepad with the two analogue sticks. Problem being, it appears no button is configured that allows the player to walk the ball (also used for low shot.) Do you need a pad with more than two triggers...

    Whole lotta ugly in here ...

    Man, just skimming these threads in here, I had to catch my breath. I can't wait to stop visiting this forum and start playing the game, because every time I stop in I feel a little more miserable and defeated. Is this anyway to spend precious leisure time? Threads here range from rampant...

    The stinging critics

    Man, if I listened to all the barbed criticism in here, you'd be left to think that FIFA 2004 isn't worth buying. Then I remember that you're a crowd of bleeding idiots, whose opinions mean ****-all to me. It's nice to have a sobering thought and remind youself that even in a ship of...

    Preparing the Women for Gross Neglect

    As release day nears, and with the game looking outstanding - especially with the advent of online play and career modes - we have to be ready for the annual backlash of wives, girlfriends, et al. who are confounded by our erratic behaviour in the wake of a new game release. To heighten my...

    Let Me Whine: No Canada

    I can't believe I'm joining the masses of Estonians, Haitians, Mongolians, Guatemalans, Phillapeanos and others who bemoan the absence of their national teams in the FIFA series, but I'm pretty saddened that EA can't find the room to include the Canadian national squad. Before you launch a...

    Top 10 Things Which Will Rule About FIFA 2004

    1. Small stadiums. You hear the fat bastard in the 9th row belching stout beer! 2. Shot placement, high and low. 3. Mexican clubs - any Mexican club! 4. Will aggravate WE7/PES lovers to no end. 5. Promotion and relegation, plus lower divisions - how long have we dreamt of that. 6...

    Gameplay, schmameplay.

    I agree with the critics that gameplay is a key component of the game. However, I do not believe 2003 had that poor gameplay - i quite enjoyed it. However, I don't think its fair to criticize what others want in a game. If they want to plead the Estonian first division, so be it. If they want...

    Backline like a fishnet stocking ...

    Or, as I should say full of holes. I guess the reason I'm dropping a line is to see if anyone can help me in my struggle to play a competitive game on World Class. It began when I was dominating sem-pro. Dominating possession, anyway, but I only managed a couple goals a game. Either way...

    What's Your Strategy?

    I've been learning the ropes of FIFA 2003 for about a week now. The most difficult thing is adjusting to the gamepad I bought - I've been using the keyboard of three years now, so it's a big learning curve. Anyway, just wanted to see if anyone had suggestions on formations, tactics, etc. that...

    How big a loser am I?

    I've been anxiously awaiting the arrival of FIFA 2003 series for about six months now, so I've undertaken a project since then. I guess it's different for you guys in Europe - you play with your favourite team. There is no professional league to speak of here in Canada, so I have no real...

    What's So Bad WC 2002? NOTHING.

    I purposely kept away from these forums for the better part of a year because I really tired of the negativity and the reams of idiots who populate this place. I found it was spoiling the whole experience for me, and there's so little discussion on these forums around strategy, so what's the...
