Every four years there’s this little football competition called the World Cup, you might have heard of it. It’s the pinnacle of football where the best international teams the world over compete for the honour of becoming the best in the world. It’s the Olympics of the football world and now, thanks to Electronic Arts, you can take part in your own living room. It might only be a video game, but when the action gets frantic, it’s so easy to forget.

Enter the Xbox, Microsoft’s powerful entry into the console market, offering the advantages of both PC’s and consoles combined. If you’re serious about games, you’ll naturally want the best graphical quality and this is where the Xbox comes in. The gameplay is as refined as the other formats, naturally. We’d even go on record to say that this is the ultimate version of 2002 FIFA World Cup.

This is an official product, and you can expect the highest level of authenticity available. It’s the small details like the players’ names and likenesses that add to the realism. Additionally, the players outfits, the new World Cup stadiums, insignia and mascots have all been licensed. When we said this is about as this is about as close as you can get to participating in the tournament, we meant it.

If you’re a FIFA fan, you need this edition. For starters, it’s the first FIFA game for your new Xbox, and because it’s packed with loads of new gameplay features that make it easy to learn, but hard to master. The new ‘airplay’ system gives an unprecedented level of control for volleys, overhead kicks and headers. All these and more are a joy to execute.

FIFA. The World Cup. Xbox. You know you wouldn’t have it any other way.
