THE GOOD: Great playability, love the new controll over passes and shots, also very impressive graphics.
THE BAD: I was disappointed to find the dutch league excluded, and would have liked more international teams, such as Senegal who made the world cup.
SUMMARY: I love the game, but I do not feel that I can give it a 5, for there are still many things I think could improve. The games controls are much more fun now that you have more control. My main complaints are the lack of some quality teams such as Senegal, Ivory Coast, Heerenveen, and no names for the dutch national team. I also feel that the pitch seem too slick, and find scoring from a distance much more difficult, than in real life, where outside goals are more common partially due to the possibility of reflecting a shot in goal. A great game, but no Madden 2002.
