North America Retail Box ArtUnited Kingdom Retail Box ArtLive out many a schoolboy's (or armchair supporter's) dream and step into the boots of Beckham or Owen as you lead your team out onto the pixellated turf in FIFA's millennium edition of its perennial offering. In what is arguably the most realistic football simulation game on the market, you get to put into practice all those moments of tactical genius you dreamt up with your mates, as well as a few you might never have considered. Superior controls make shooting and passing second-nature, while your opponents possess enough intelligence and skill to give you a good game and a realistic scoreline. After choosing between friendly, tournament, season or training matches, you then go on to pick one of 450 teams from 15 of the top leagues in the world. Your choice of location and weather conditions comes next, before you embark on a game lasting between four and 45 minutes. (You also stipulate the duration). If players of the modern game don't make your grade, you have the edge over real-life managers with your ability to draw on past talent and pick from classic squads such as the World Cup winners of 1966. Though footie fanatics will find plenty to please them, more mainstream gamers should also give it a go: arcade-style gameplay and well-executed 3-D graphics provide an addictive gaming experience that make you want to return time and time again. It has traditional gaming elements of tactical play and competitive challenge that offer something for almost everyone. With an ELSPA minimum age rating of just 3 years, FIFA 2000 contains none of the on-pitch or off-pitch violence and obscenities often seen and heard in the real game--this is football as it should be! --Robert Hyde
