  The Sports Gaming Network - 2002 FIFA World Cup (PS2) Review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
WC 2002 looks very similar to Fifa 2002 (which itself looked almost identical to Fifa 2001), however there are two minor improvements in WC 2002; the player faces and the stadia.
While the player faces in Fifa 2002 were hideous ogres, the player faces in WC 2002 are much better and bear a good resemblance to their real-life counterparts.
The ball physics in WC 2002 are slightly different than in Fifa 2002 with the ball far less 'floaty' than before; however, the ball physics are still clearly scripted with the ball still acting as if it were filled with iron filings and players had magnets in their boots.

FIFA World Cup 2002 may well be the easiest to pick up and play of any EA title, but without diminishing the feeling of authenticity we?ve come to expect of this series.

 FIFA World Cup 2002
Marrying EA Sports' trademark razzamatazz with the hype and glitter of the biggest sporting event on Earth, the PS One's 2002 FIFA World Cup is a multimedia feast, with a passable game tacked on too.
As with FIFA 2002, it's clear that the bulk of the development money has gone in the direction of the PC and next-generation consoles; that's not to say that the PS One version has been totally neglected, as the intro sequences and the singing and dancing menu system testify.
2002 FIFA World Cup, despite its flaws, could be just the title for the younger player who's not particularly experienced with games in this genre: it's simple to get into and still provides a decent challenge.

Well, FIFA isn't exactly a bucket of realism, but this version is certainly fun, which is the most important aspect of a game.
Now if you've played FIFA 2002 then you'll find this game easier, but the difficulty and realism has improved and only a very skilled player will succeed in taking on the defence in World Class mode.
Sometimes it is funny when you catch a player on the ankle, and to your surprise, unlike FIFA 2002, he won't fly across the screen and land like a Stunt man, but he'll trip up, loose balance and fall to his knees, until he has his faces in the grass.

The 1998 Chinese figure was substantially overweighted - as were the Chinese viewing figures for the two previous FIFA World Cups - because they were based on Shanghai City ratings, which were then multiplied nationally to give an estimated audience for the entire country.
FIFA has taken the lead in deciding that a more accurate solution needed to be introduced and that this was the right time to do it.
The 2002 FIFA World Cup™ saw exceptionally high levels of out-of-home viewing in public places, such as pubs and bars, and in the workplace.

With the exception of the hardest one, most of the difficulty settings in 2002 FIFA World Cup really aren't that challenging, and it doesn't really feel like there's an increase in the complexity of the AI when you move from one setting to the next.

FIFA 2002 was, in my opinion, the best sports game of 2001 and maybe the best soccer game ever.
In World Cup EA boasted of a new "air play" system that allows you to juggle the ball or do other flashy special moves all while heading towards the goal.
I know some people who enjoy playing for the Cup and possibly matching up with a friend along the way will be disappointed they left this out.
