guidelines about sending me mail:

1.Make sure you put the title of the game you're asking about in the
  subject. I've made a fair few FAQs, and it's a bit hard to work
  things out sometimes.

2.If it's an FAQ, make sure that it's not already in the guide!!! If
  it is, I'll do my best to ignore it.

  If it's not in there, make sure that the details you provide
  are, well, DETAILED, and not sketchy. Examples are "Hi need to know
  how to get past this part, i'm in a room and stuck", I need to know
  where you are, etc.

3.Ask nicely. So far, most people have, but if your mail goes along
  the lines of "Hi, need code for B2, reply within the next hour
  otherwise I'll bomb you" will not get you anywhere.

That's it. Sorry for being a pain, but it had to be said.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
1)Introduction
---------------------------------------------------------------------

GOAL!!! Was the roar when France slotted their third goal in the '98
World Cup final. And that's when I really tuned into soccer. I bought
World Cup '98, and that satisfied me until I decided, hey, I need league
action. And Fifa 2000 came into the picture.

EA Sports have once again created a soccer (okay, FOOTBALL) game which
is virtually flawless. From the very cool intro, the blazing Robbie
Williams rock tune in the background, to the slick graphics and the
enormous amount of options, I knew that this was going to keep me
playing for a while.

While the graphics aren't much an improvement over Fifa '99, they are
still very good, as you can't improve perfection. Another neat graphical
enhancement 2000 has gone under is the huge amount of things you can
do with a player's face, and the huge amount of looks a player can have.
Don't like that long hair? Shave his head. Want a goatee? Bring it on.
Want to dye Beckham's hair red? Want to give Kewell a beard? Almost
anything can be done to a player's appearance and facial expressions.

The sound is top notch. As usual, the commentary gets a little repetitive,
but the kickass music makes up for it. While it may not be to everyone's
taste, I reckon the rock/dance/techno score is an effective one. Robbie
Williams pops in with the catchy It's Only Us, a great rock tune,
while other artists such as Apollo Four Forty and Gay Dad popping in
to help. Sometimes you'll purposely stay in the menu screens to listen
to the tracks.

The interface isn't ground-breaking, but it's nice and does the job. The
game's real selling point though is the sheer amount of teams and the
vast array of options you can use to customize your team. Pick from any
international side, league, or classic teams. Leagues include the FA
Premier League (GO LEEDS!), Serie A (Juventus...), and even the MLS, in
a ploy to open up the USA's eyes to soccer/football. The classic teams
are those old, but very cool teams from the past, and the best part is
that you can play as Pele (I think), Maradonna, and much, much more.

The options that you can use to your advantage are great too. Click a
button, you've changed your 5-4-1 formation into a more practical
4-4-2. Don't like your team passing short? Make them go long. Don't want
to play zonal? Go man-to-man. Also included are three handy IGMs, or
In Game Management. This allows to to switch to one of three formations
whilst in the middle of play, so if you've got the ball in your half
you can quickly go to a 3-4-3 attack, or switch to a 5-4-1 defense.

Gone are the days of those stupid skill buttons, and everything can
be pulled off with the use of only one button! Well, almost. EA have also
included a handy passing indicator when you have the ball, so that you
actually know where the pass is going.

Any complaints? Well, the Amateur skill level is just too damn easy. But
take it up to World Class, even Professional, you'll get your butt whipped
in no time at all. And the commentary is just a bit boring. You'll get
sick of hearing "Great Stop!" everytime your keeper saves the ball.

Put the cons against the pros though, and you'll find out that the pros
come on top...and Fifa 2000 is a worthy addition to that soccer/football
game collection of yours.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
2)Different Skill Levels
---------------------------------------------------------------------

In the game there are three different skill/difficulty levels you can
choose from; Amateur, Professional and World Class. Here's a guide
on how to beat the opposition on each of these levels.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Amateur
---------------------------------------------------------------------

This is the ideal level for beginners. The AI hardly ever challenges
you, unless you're near goal, and the experienced player can hammer
in 10 goals in a half.

Tips for scoring:
-Straight from the start, run towards goal. Once you get into enemy
territory, slow down and just weave your way through them. Come close
to the goals, and take a shot. Depending on how far away the goalie
is from the ball, you'll probably score.

Tips for defending:
-Just run up and do a normal tackle (O on PSX, D on PC). You'll steal
the ball and lob (Square on PSX, A on PC) it up the field.

If you've played a Fifa before, use this to brush up on your skills.
Otherwise, you shouldn't bother with this unless you are a beginner,
or play a crap team (e.g Watford, sorry to you supporters) against
someone like (sigh) Manchester United.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Professional
---------------------------------------------------------------------

This is where you stop practising and get into the real stuff. If
you've just built up the courage to move up to here from Amateur, you'll
find the going tough. Here, the AI is much more likely to challenge you
and use all the fancy passing skills they have.

Tips for scoring:
-Do not, attempt to run through like you did in Amateur Mode. The ball
will get stolen, and you'll have to gain possession again.

-Keep moving. Don't try to run straight through the opposition, or
stay in one spot. Weave in and out, use the sidestep (press Left Shift
on PC, I'm yet to figure it out for PSX) and the Spin (ALT on PC, I
think it's R2 on PSX) to get through the opposition.

-When going for goal, it's good to run in from an angle, and then either
shoot it in the same direction that you're running in, or shoot it in
the opposite direction. It's bound to get in goal that way. You could
also try whacking shoot (O on PSX, D on PC), in the hope that the goalie
will punch it away, resulting in a corner, or you possessing the ball
again.

-Also, run on say, a 30 degree angle towards the keeper. Draw him out-
meaning make him run out- then quickly shoot. Instant score.

-When taking a corner, do not shoot anywhere near the keeper, instead,
pass it to the guy who's right on the edge of the penalty area, near the
semi-circle. Then, either bicycle kick it in, or chest it down and take
a shot.

-However, if you curve it while aiming straight, push it at medium height,
and at medium power, the goalie may not run out, leaving a gap for your
players to run through and head a goal.

-If you're running for goal, and someone's on your tail, running in on an
angle will make you stick your arm out and guard yourself from being
tackled, so that's one to try.

-Sometimes, when you're just in front of the keeper, simply passing it
into the goals (X on PSX, S on PC) will work.

Tips for defending:

-Try to restrict use of the sliding tackle (Square on PSX, A on PC) to
last-ditch efforts. Sliding in from anywhere apart from straight in
front of them will result in a free kick, and sometimes a card.

-Use the tackle (O on PSX, D on PC) wisely. Mistime it, and it can result
in a free kick, or the player will run off with the ball. Sprint until
you're just in front of them, whether it be directly in front of them,
or to the side of them, then tackle and lob it up the field.

-When the goalie has the ball, make him drop it (L1 on PSX, Q on PC), and
then tap the lob button twice. This should result in a kick which goes
pretty far.

-When defending a corner, make sure that one of the men with a symbol above
their heads is being guarded (press the symbol that's above him). If you
don't do this, if the ball is passed to them, they'll have an "open" shot
at goal.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
World Class
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Designed for those with a high tolerance level. Even against the easiest
teams, they'll provide a relentless attack, and a tough defense.

Tips:

-Just use the tips outlined in Professional to your advantage, and make
sure that you do not waste possession of the ball.

-Make full use of the advanced controls. Thorough passes, sidesteps and
360 spins are vital to keeping possession of the ball.

-When rushing towards goal, the goalie will more than often dive at your
feet. To counter this, use the hurdle (L2 on PSX, CTRL on PC) to flick
the ball up, and then tap it in.

-Keep on hitting tackle to ensure a change in possession. Don't just hit
it once and hope that you'll get the ball. World Class is the time where
if you don't get the ball within the first couple of tries, you'll need
to slide.

-Corner kicks. Easy chances to score goals, and you have to make sure
that you utilise the bicycle kick. Pass it to the person who is not
too close to the keeper, but not too far out either, and while it's
in the air, pick a direction, double tap SHOOT, and it's a certain
goal. Unless Schemeichel's the goalie.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
3)IGM and Team Management
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Fifa 2000 utilizes an IGM system, where you can select one of three
formations during the game to suit the pace. To do this, head into
the Team Management menu and click on IGM. To change the positioning
of your offense/midfield/defense, hit the arrow next to the position
you want to change. To change IGMs in the game, hit Select for PSX,
Spacebar for PC.

Key:

ST=Striker, main attacker. Should be the player with the best chance
to recieve the ball well and smack it into the goals.

LF=Left Forward, attacker. If you have three attackers, these guys
set up the ball for the centre attackers. Otherwise, pick a pair
which goes well together and watch the goals roll in.

CF=Centre Forward, if no ST, he's the main attacker. Plays deep into
offense, or into midfield, and should be the one with the most
accurate shots.

RF=Right Forward, attack. If you have three attackers, these guys
set up the ball for the centre attackers. Otherwise, pick a pair
which goes well together and watch the goals roll in.

AM=Attacking Midfield (?), midfield who jumps in to attack. Usually
plays the role of an extra striker.

LM=Left Midfield, covers the left wing area. Basically a wall before
the attack gets to your defense, and when you're in possesion, turns
into an attacking machine.

LW=Left Winger, covers the left wing area, runs in to attack and
defend. Great if he's fast, and his main use is to fool the defenders
and set up attacks/crosses, and chip in himself.

CM=Central Midfield, covers the centre and runs into attack and
defend. The most important player, needs to be an all-rounder, and
has to have a high fitness level, as he'll get tired from attacking
and defending non-stop.

RM=Right Midfield, covers the right wing area. Basically a wall before
the attack gets to your defense, and when you're in possesion, turns
into an attacking machine.

RW=Right Winger, covers the right wing area, runs in to attack and
defend. Great if he's fast, and his main use is to fool the defenders
and set up attacks/crosses, and chip in himself.

DM=Defensive Midfielder, usually defense but can also attack. From
my research, these guys just usually stick around in midfield, and set
up attacking chances rather than attacking themselves.

AB=Anchor Back, can also attack. Quite similar to a sweeper, covers
for midfield errors and helps out in defence most of the time.

LB=Left Fullback, defends, tries to stop the attack getting past them.
Simple.

LWB=Left Wingback runs into midfield, and therefore should be
fit enough to take on the role of defending winger.

CB=Centre Fullback, should be the main defender, who tries to stop
the attack running into the penalty box.

RB=Right Fullback, defends, tries to stop the attack getting past them.
Simple.

RWB=Right Wingback, runs into midfield, and therefore should be
fit enough to take on the role of defending winger.

SW=Sweeper, last line of defense. This guy will attempt to clean up
any errors made by your defense and turn them into potential goals.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
These guys all have different skill ratings, here's a description
of each one.

Fitness, FIT

The fitter they are, the more effort they put it, and the less tired they
get.

Speed, SPD

The faster they are, the quicker they'll be able to slot in that goal,
or steal the ball from a runaway midfielder. You'll need speedy players
if you're going to play with a wing.

Shot, SHT

Players in attack and midfield should have a good shot rating, as they
need to get the ball to others accurately, and also into the goal.

Passing, PSS

Players with good passing skills are needed so that you don't lose
control of the ball that often. They should be able to deliver fast,
accurate passes to their teammates.

Strength, STR

You need Strength. That's all. Use force to take the ball and slam it
real hard into the net. Make legit tackles hurt. Etc., etc.

Heading, HDR

You need a good heading ratio if you are defending or attacking, to
contest those high balls and stop/get those goals.

Ball Control, BC

If you have good ball control, you can weave in and out of the
opposition, without losing the ball at all, and is useful is you're
making a rush out from defense or towards goal.

Tackling, TKL

You need lots of this so that you can take the ball from attackers, and
to take it cleanly.

Keeper Skills, KSK

Determines how well your keeper can do his job, meaning how well he
jumps, catches, punches and dives.

Keeper Positioning, KPS

This will tell if a keeper knows where to stand when guarding the goal.
No use if he's swinging on the crossbar, shirt off and singing the
national anthem, so you need this so that your keeper knows where to
stand.

Keeper Aggression, KAG

Determines whether he's game enough to take a flyer over the pack,
dive in the way of an oncoming striker, and whether or not he's game
enough to make the defenders to what he wants them to do. Although I
think that only applies in real life.

You can change these by going into the Customize Menu and selecting
your team, then player edit. Now, it's not fair if you make up a
superteam, okay?
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Onto formations.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
IGM 1
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Your default formation. Usually this will be a 4-4-2 or 3-4-3 formation.
4-4-2 is the most versatile formation. Default, the positions are:

                          LF RF
                       LM CM CM RM
                       LB CB CB RB

This is a fine formation. My style is:

                          LF  RF
                            AM
                          LW  RW
                            AB
                      LWB CB  CB RWB

But it's up to you. With my style, you sort of have an extra striker,
your AM player. Same with the defense, you've kinda got an extra
defender in the form of the person at AB. However, this formation
is vunerable to players rushing down the wings, so be careful. With
the default 4-4-2 style, watch out for the gaps in the middle.

In 3-4-3 style, this is the default:

                         LF CF RF
                       LM CM  CM RM
                         LB CB RB

This is a great attacking formation, but the defense could be improved.
The wing is covered fine, you've got a nice attack, but a small defense.

                            ST
                          LF  RF
                          LM  RM
                          DM  DM
                          LB  RB
                            SW
This style, however is great as it's a "box" formation and it's only
vunerable to wing attacks, which I think most formations are. Your DMs
serve as extra defenders, so it's not so bad.

                            ST
                          LF  RF
                       LM CM  CM RM
                          LB  RB
                            SW

This is also a great formation to use. Everything is arranged "neatly"
and the attack is adequate, along with the midfield. The defense is
a little crappy, but, you can make the LM and RMs into LW and RWs, to
make the defense better.

A 4-3-3 formation serves well too.

                         LF CF RF
                         LM CM RM
                       LB CB CB RB

That's default. And default doesn't do much.

                          ST  ST
                            CF
                          LM  RM
                            AB
                      LWB CB  CB RWB

Great offensive and defensive formation, but the midfield needs to
be strong.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
IGM 2
---------------------------------------------------------------------

This should be your defensive IGM. Good defensive formations include
5-4-1, 5-3-2, and 4-5-1.

The formation that I use is 5-4-1. In default, it looks like

                            ST
                       LM CM  CM RM
                      LB CB CB CB RB

This is a great defense, but I've tweaked it just in case someone
sneaks past.

                            ST
                       LM CM  CM RM
                      LWB CB  CB RWB
                            SW

The sweeper is a vital part of the defense, being the last man before
the goalie. The person assigned to the role of sweeper should be fast,
fit and a good tackler.

This is a default 5-3-2 formation.

                          LF  RF
                         LM CM RM
                     LWB CB CB CB RWB

Which is fine, but I don't think two strikers are really necessary
for a defensive formation.

This is a 4-5-1 formation.

                            ST
                        LM  CM  RM
                          DM  DM
                       LB CB  CB RB

                            or

                            ST
                          DM  DM
                        LM  AB  RM
                       LB CB  CB RB

This formation is very useful when you've just been disposessed in
your offensive half. The midfield is staggered out, so it covers both
the wings and the middle, and with the second style, almost makes a
six man defense.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
IGM 3
---------------------------------------------------------------------

The last IGM should be your all out attack formation. Good formations
for this are 3-4-3, 4-3-3 and 4-4-2 can also be used to your advantage.
I've read up on the tips at www.fifa2000.net and it says that you can
have a 3-3-4 formation! Someone please tell me how to get this, as if
you can it would be a killer. Mail to dc3131@yahoo.com.au

In 3-4-3 style, this is the default:

                         LF CF RF
                       LM CM  CM RM
                         LB CB RB

                     or you can have

                            CF
                          LF  RF
                       LM CM  CM RM
                         LB CB RB

                            or

                            ST
                          LF  RF
                       LM CM  CM RM
                          LB  RB
                            SW

This is a great attacking formation, but the defense could be improved.
But since it is an attacking formation, you shouldn't need to worry.

                            ST
                          LF  RF
                          LM  RM
                          DM  DM
                          LB  RB
                            SW
This style, however is great as it's a "box" formation and it's only
vunerable to wing attacks, which I think most formations are. Should
the ball be lost, I'm sure it'll say inside the "box", and one of your
people should be able to pass it off again.

                            ST
                          LF  RF
                       LM CM  CM RM
                          LB  RB
                            SW

This is also a great formation to use. Everything is arranged "neatly"
and the attack is adequate, along with the midfield. You can bring the
sweeper up to a CB, as defense doesn't really count when attacking,
but if you wish to use this as a default formation, you should leave
it there.

A 4-3-3 default style:

                          LF CF RF
                          LM CM RM
                        LB CB  CB RB

This is okay, but to me, there should be a slight change in the front
line.

                           ST
                         LF  RF
                           AM
                         LM  RM
                     LWB CB  CB RWB

Now you've got basically four strikers, and two defenders that will run
down and act as midfielders.

A 4-4-2 default:

                          LF RF
                       LM CM CM RM
                       LB CB CB RB

Now, that's basic. Let's tweak it a little.

                            ST
                            CF
                            AM
                          LM  RM
                            AB
                      LWB CB  CB RWB

You've now virtually got three strikers in a row, with three midfielders
who will keep the area secure, and once again two defenders that can act
as wingers.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

With that information you should be able to create the perfect formation
for your team. Soon I'll put up formations suggestions for different
teams.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Strategy
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Now, if you hit IGM and then change the bar at the top to Strategy,
you'll have more options to play with. I've had a few e-mails about
this section, so here we go!

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Attacking Style
---------------------------------------------------------------------

This determines the way your players will act when in possession, how
much effort they use, how much force the whole team will attack with
and so on. It applies to the whole team.

Neutral

When playing in this attacking style, there's no plan, the player
with the ball is left to make up the decision himself. It's go with
the flow style of play.

Possession

Playing in this style means that the whole plan is not to lose the
ball. However, this style is probably not one I'd recommend. Everything
has to be taken slowly...players have to get into position...and by
then you've lost the ball. Sheesh. Before attacking, you've got to
wait for your men to get into the right positions, and then go forth,
otherwise you'll be stuffed.

Counterattack

Great for teams with strong defensive players and a fast attack. In
this style, the team sits back and waits until defence can gain
possession. Then it's just a rush to see which one of your strikers can
get the ball in first. Use through passes and long lobs to make full
use of the situation.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Passing Style
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Determines the length of the passes your team makes. Short passes are,
short (Whoa! Nobel Prize, right here!) and accurate, and long passes
are, well, long (Two Nobel Prizes in one sentence? DAMN!) but in-
accurate. Both have their ups and downs.

Short

Very accurate passes, but you'll need to pass a hell of a lot if you
want to score a goal. Players with high Ball Control levels are great
to use with this.

Long

Great if your idea of attacking is rushing down the wing and passing
to the strikers right in front of goal. Sure, you won't get every pass
spot on 100% of the time, but it's a great way to get directly to
the goal.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Defensive Style
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Determines the way your team plays after losing the ball, how your
team acts to stop the ball, what type of formation they'll take, etc.

Withdrawn

In this style, the plan is to rush back into the defensive half and
get ready to stop the forthcoming attack. You should be able to build
up a "wall" and steal the ball before they get anywhere near the goal.

Contain

Instead of running back into defense, they build up their defense
around where they're standing, and then try to take the ball from the
opposition, occasionally giving chase. You should be able to steal
the ball from them before they hit the penalty box.

Pressure

After you lose the ball, everyone becomes homing missiles on the
opposition and act straight away to steal the ball. If you get the
ball early enough, you can launch an offensive attack right away.
Or, you could hold the ball until your defense is steady again, then
plan from there.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Marking Style
---------------------------------------------------------------------

This is the way that your players "tag" your opponents in defence.

Zonal

When in this marking style, players aren't assigned to specific
opponents, rather different parts of the field. This leaves quite a
few players running around unmarked, so you can pass the ball to them.
But be careful, as the opposition can quite easily weave in and out
of them.

Man-To-Man

In this mode, each player finds another and sticks to them like glue,
unless he spots someone else who's better suited to the job. This
is great, but loose attackers can easily rush in to score. Counter-
attack that by making use of a sweeper. Otherwise, it's a great way
to keep a hold on those pesky wingers.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
4)Best Teams
---------------------------------------------------------------------

There are a number of leagues available in Fifa 2000, and I'll be
pointing out the talented teams in some of the leagues.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Brazil
---------------------------------------------------------------------

The league of the South Americans. All the power teams are in here,
and while there's only a few, they're damn good.

Corinthians-   3-5-2, power attack and good defense.

Flamengo-      3-4-3, great attack, but the defense...

Vasco De Gama- 3-4-3, blistering attack and a midfield to back it up.

Verdict: Vasco wins.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
England
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Probably the most well known league in the world, with some of the top
clubs.

Aston Villa-       4-4-2, great midfield, and a strong defense led by
Southgate.

Arsenal-           4-4-2, absolutely brillant. Let's list the good
players! Seaman, Adams, Vieira, Overmars, Suker, Bergkamp, Kanu,
Henry...

Chelsea-           4-4-2, another great midfield/attack. Wise and Zola
lead the attack, while Petrescu is an excellent defender/midfielder.

Leeds United-      4-4-2, don't write these guys off. With Kewell,
Bowyer, young McPhail, Bridges and Martyn, there's a lot of hidden
talent.

Liverpool-         3-5-2, look at that offense. Owen and Fowler. The
perfect combo?

Manchester United- 4-4-2, ...what can I say. Even though I hate them,
they are the best club in the world. Beckham, Cole, Stam, if only
Bosnich could decide to play good or bad.

Newcastle-         5-3-2, strikers unite! Shearer and Ferguson are a
deadly couple.

Tottenham-         4-5-1, great midfield, but the offense could be
tweaked. Use Ginola for those spot kicks.

Verdict:Really comes down to Arsenal, Manchester and Chelsea. I'd have
to pick Arsenal to win just because they are that good, then a tie
between Chelsea and Manchester. Expect Leeds and Newcastle to do
well.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
France
---------------------------------------------------------------------

While not doing so well in the UEFA (1999-2000), French teams are quite
powerful.

Bordeaux-  4-4-2, nice offense.

Marseille- 4-3-3, with Dugarry in the striker's seat, oh yeah!

Monaco-    4-4-2, great keeper, and good all round.

Verdict:Bordeaux by a mile.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Germany
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Probably the best offensive clubs? Well, just Bayern...

1860 Munich-   3-5-2, a great midfield and a nice defense.

Bayern Munich- 3-4-2, damn. Great everywhere, Jankcer and Elber are
tops, and Kahn's a good keeper too.

Dortmund-      4-4-2, good offense.

Verdict: Bayern. Too easy.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Italy
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Screams STYLE!!! And you can hear it from far, far away. Probably the
best league in the world.

AC Milan-    3-4-3, are a great team, with a good defense and Bierhoff
striking.

Florentina-  3-5-2, great offense/midfield, including Batistuta and
Rui Costa!

Inter Milan- 3-4-3, what can I say? Ronaldo, Vieri, great offense,
great defense.

Juventus-    3-4-3, brilliant. Davids and Zidane own midfield, and
Inzaghi and Del Piero are just the players for the striking position.

Lazio-       4-4-2, wonderful defense and attack. Mihajlovic does it
for the defense, while Salas and Boksic keep those goals rolling in.

Verdict: Lazio, due to it's wonderful defense and attack, closely
followed by Juventus and Inter.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Scotland
---------------------------------------------------------------------

A small league, but full of hidden talent.

Celtic-  4-4-2, a good midfield and Viduka leading the offense.

Rangers- 4-4-2, great defense and midfield, led by a great Aussie by
the name of Vidmar.

Verdict: Tough, but in the end, I think Celtic are better.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Spain
---------------------------------------------------------------------

A well balanced league, with some of the best European clubs.

Barcelona-   4-4-2, simply brilliant. The De Boers, Rivaldo and
Kluivert make this side the one to beat.

Real Betis-  4-4-2, the offense is superb, backed up by Denilson in
midfield.

Real Madrid- 3-4-3, the other Spanish giant, features striker Anelka
and top defender Roberto Carlos.

Verdict: Barcelona, followed by Real Madrid.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Rest of the World
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Not much to pick from here...

Croatia Zagreb- 4-4-2, good all round.

Dinamo Kiev-    4-4-2, great midfield.

Verdict: Dinamo Kiev.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
International
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Now we get to the REAL power teams.

Argentina- 4-4-2, great all round.

Brazil-    4-4-2, gee, would I be so stupid to leave these guys out?

England-   4-4-2, I'd pick these guys over any team. Bring it on!

France-    4-4-2, very, very nicely constructed. You can't go past
their offense, defense, or midfield!

Germany-   4-4-2, slanted to attack.

Holland-   4-4-2, great all round, focuses on midfield/offense though.

Italy-     4-4-2, nice offense.

Australia- 4-4-2, an underdog, but with their defense, and midfield,
I think these guys can hold their own.

Nigeria-   4-4-2, another overlooked team, features a great midfield
and good strikers.

Verdict: Brazil, France and England will take this out with Italy and
Germany coming up close.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Arsenal are probably the best team in the English Premier League. This
formation makes good work of their brilliant attack and great midfield.
Should a striker get tired, either Henry or Kanu will do the job, but
Henry is the better midfielder.

Florentina, the guys with the awesome attack, just needs to have there
defense improved a little, and the introduction of the sweeper just
makes it that better. Even though they're already good.

I don't know why, but I thought that having Ronaldo in the front line
to help score more goals would be pretty good as they've got a great
midfield already. Use the three strikers to the best effect you can.

Just adding more people to Juventus' front line. The midfield is
already good, and without Zidane I was still able to perform well,
so here's a great formation for taking on the top teams.

If you've updated your game, so that Trezeguet is in the line up...

This team is not the best team out there, but it's certainly full of

the real surprise is the blistering midfield led by Kewell. It's also
very versatile as many players are well suited to all posistions.

got superstars Ronaldo and Rivaldo attacking, and even Carlos in
defence can shoot the ball pretty well too. Versatile, and worth your

My fave team. What's so good about them, and not Brazil? Well, in my
opinion, these guys are even more versatile. Look at the line up.
You've got a defence which even a battering ram could break through,
the midfield which is oozing with talent and the strikers which never
miss. Use these guys.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
6)Dead Ball Situations
---------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Attacking Situations
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Throw-Ins

Just find an player who's free and chuck it to them. Always aim for
someone who's in the attacking half, try not to throw backwards as it
does give the opposition time to steal. Otherwise, if you're near
goal, go long, in hope of getting a header shot, or stealing from a
sluggish defender.

Free Kicks

Just aim high. Unless you're going near goal. You should curl your
shot around the wall and it will have a nice chance of going in.
Otherwise, make use of the set pieces and while the attackers are
confusing the crap out of the defenders, pass it off and go for goal.

Corner Kicks

There's a few strategies for corners.

-Too many defenders in the box? Well, kick it to the semi-circle or
the player nearest to it, and let them finish off the job from there.

-Try curving it a little, not too high, and aim straight for goal.
Usually the keeper will punch it but 90% of the time, my striker has
rushed in there and smacked in a goal.

-Pass it off to the closest player, and then either take a shot, or
pass it off again to create a really good scoring opportunity.

-Boot it all the way across to a player on the other side, then pass
back inside the box, and shoot. Great confusion tactic.

-Corner kicks. Easy chances to score goals, and you have to make sure
that you utilise the bicycle kick. Pass it to the person who is not
too close to the keeper, but not too far out either, and while it's
in the air, pick a direction, double tap SHOOT, and it's a certain
goal. Unless Schemeichel's the goalie.

Penalty Kicks

Concentrate. Make up your mind, stick with it, and hit it sweetly into
the net. Don't be put off by the goalies, either. I've got a friend
who slides from side to side when he's the goalie, and even though
my concentration level is quite low, I manage to pull it off. BTW, if
someone does that to you, try kicking it straight.

Goal Kicks

What? Isn't this more of a defending thing? Well, position yourself
correctly, and you can make the moves to score a goal. Defend the person
with the D or O above their heads, and use your other player to defend
an unmarked opponent. When the ball comes, chest it down, and make
a run towards goal.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Defensive Situations
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Throw-Ins

Two of the players with an icon above their heads should be close
together. Mark one of them, and use your free player to mark the guy
on the other side. Watch out, if they're near goal, they may go long.

Free Kicks

Make sure the player you are controlling isn't one in the wall, and
use him to run around and cover any gaps/attackers.

Corner Kicks

Be very, very careful. Mark a player, and get ready for some heading
action. It's tough to defend a corner.

Penalty Kicks

Trust you instinct. Also, if you are playing on the PSX, try and sneak
a look at the other person's controller. Yes, sneaky, but it does
help. Until you find out that they've taken the shot already.

Goal Kicks

Usually, aim it to the unmarked person, or just boot it.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
7)General Tips
---------------------------------------------------------------------

-Head to www.fifa2000.net and into the downloads/rosters/mix section.
Grab the patch by Jay Jones. It's a great patch which updates many
wrong stats, and new teams (finally! Porto!)

-Also grab any patch by Treebeard. Awesome stuff.

-When taking a free kick near goal, and if you have a wall in front
of you, aim it to the extreme left or right of the goal, then curve it
around. Use middle-full power, and the shot is destined to go in.

-Don't forget to watch the fatigue level of your players! Head into
the menu, team management, then check out the fatigue level of your
players. If there are any players under 70%, definetly switch them
with a substitute.

-I've got cheats for the PC version. Head into Options and into the
cheat menu.

LIGHTSOUT-Glow Mode, where the players are outlined in light and the
field is pitch black.
BURNABY-EAC Pitch, gives you a nice pitch where there aren't too many
spectators. Oh, it's in fron ot the EA office.
SIZZLE-Lightning Mode, get zapped and it's the equivalent of a red
card.
MOMONEY-Unlimited Bankroll, finally you can create a superteam with
your unlimited transfer money!
DIZZY-Alien Mode, if the aliens get you, it's a red card.
HOOLIGAN-Bonus Teams, gives you some bonus teams, EA Teams 1-4, and
Guests. You can then just use these teams, or say create your own teams
(ones which aren't in there, a superteam, or a team full of your
friends).

-Whe using the aggressive tackle, remember that it's not called
aggressive for no reason. Take the player out from any angle apart
from directly in front of them, and it's a free kick.

--Corner kicks. Easy chances to score goals, and you have to make sure
that you utilise the bicycle kick. Pass it to the person who is not
too close to the keeper, but not too far out either, and while it's
in the air, pick a direction, double tap SHOOT, and it's a certain
goal. Unless Schemeichel's the goalie.

From Ryan
-Hello i read your FAQ on fifa 2000 for the pc and psx.
I wanted to say it was very well done. now for some
tips...me personally i use Arsenal i love bergkamp and
seamen is a brick wall...i play on word class and some
games im running up the score some games its
close...but how i score if your playing on tele camera
view i think it is or side by side but when your going
right to left i use the bottom sideline i start my
offense from the back and just pass and go on that
sideline then when i get the ball to my forward i
break towards the sideline a bit spin on the defender
and race to the endline when i get to the equivalent
on the box i cut in on an angle towards the edge of
the box and the goal line...then i angle back sort of
and cross it to like the 11 meter spot or the 18 and
bike it in works almost every time and when your going
the opposite way left to right i do the same thing but
on the top of the screen i perfected it and have had
games i have scored 8 or 9 goals...and another tip
when playing defense and they have broken by you for a
break away them and the goalie you can make the goalie
charge on psx its L1 and if you do it right it cuts
down the angle sometimes he grabs the ball off their
feet and other times he gets enough of the ball when
they shoot to let the defenders get in position
again...i really have no more tips or questions at
this time but if yo ucan respond id really like
that....thansk again for that page though hope to be
hearing from you...bye

From Phil:

-You're probably already aware of this, but I didn't see anything
relating to it in your FAQ.

It can be pretty cool to transfer some of the classic stars into your
team, I've just won the Premiership with Aston Villa (Pro setting) and
guess who was playing as an attacking midfielder?

The legendary Sir Bobby Charlton!

55 goals for the season and he's just about unstoppable at corners and
when shooting from just outside the box.  He's a bit punchy on the
price side at just over 32,000 - but he's a definite game winner
(particularly when he's playing behind Bergkamp and Shearer!!).

Another thing I've found is that if you win a corner and take it
immediately (ie while the opposition are still running back to organise
their defence) to the player stood just in front of the penalty spot
marked with the triangle, you quite often get a completely free header
or volley in.  It's almost a banker for a goal, and when the ball is
met by Sir Bob - it's a done deal (hence the 55 goals).

Cheers

BTW - Great work on the FAQs.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Drs Kev, Mark and Dave (These guys are dentists!!!):

-Just read your FAQ with interest. Myself and the boys think that
FIFA 98 RTWC is still the best, playability wise, apart from the
annoying picture judder when a quick and high shot is fired over the
bar. Nevertheless, FIFA 2000 is a vast improvement over the 99
version which we all think was too arcade-like and didn't encourage
you to spread the play. Anyway, here's a good tip for when you are
one on one with the 'keeper. As you run into the box (preferably
facing towards goal) there is no need for angled runs at all. Just
tap L1 (thru pass) in front of goal and the PSX is fooled. The keeper
goes down late because it isn't seen as a shot and lo and behold, a
beautifully finished low shot hits the back of the net. My old father
said there were no guarantees in life but the giffer is sadly
mistaken. Very little practice results in a goal every time, with
the keeper making no saves. Most of our other tips gleamed from too
many nights in front of the PSX you seem to have covered, so keep
up the good work!

---------------------------------------------------------------------
From Chad:

-Hey I was just checkin out your FAQ and noticed that you havent been
able to figure out which button does a Let Side Step move on the PSX
version.  Well, it's L2......you have to press and hold it down
otherwise you'll get that ball flick move.  Took me a while to figure
it out too. Great job on the FAQ
---------------------------------------------------------------------
8)FAQs
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Q.i have a few questions myself. One ever since the 94 world cup i have
been in love with bulgarias stoichkov...now i know in early fifa games
he played for parma and barcelona but is he on any club team in 2000?
And klinsmann is another favorite i know he used to play for tottenham
on earlier versions of fifa but what club team does he play for now
or is he on a club team in the game either?

A. Best thing to do is to go on the net and find out what club they
are playing for presently! Other than that, I can't help you, but
I'll start searching myself.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Q.yeah in Fifa2000 how do you header the ball because when i lob the
ball up to a player i press circle to try & header it but he just does
a volley kick?

A.Hit the shoot button ONCE, and only ONCE. That should work. Or hold
it.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Q.What are all these options in the Strategy section of Team Management?
Can you tell me what they do?

A.Yup! They're now in the Team Management section.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Q.I can't make good use of my (free kicks, penalty kicks, etc.). Help!

A.This will be in the Dead Ball situations.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Q.How do you work the cheats?

A.Only works with the PC version. Go into the Options Menu, and there
will be a cheats section. Enter them in.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Q.I was wondering if you knew how to get the "Classic Look" when you
play with the classic teams.  The game said everything should have a
brownish tint, but it didn't happen for me.  I was wondering if maybe
you have to win a season or something.

A.I think you have to play a Classic V Classic match.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Q.I have a couple of questions on Fifa 2000.

1. When you have the ball with a player, does his name show up?

2.  What' the best mode in the game.

3. Are the national teams of England and U.S.A in there?

A.Nope, his name doesn't show. Best mode? Meaning? There's Season and
Cup. In a season, you pick a league team and play each other team
twice, with European and Country Championships in between. Cups are
just a whole bunch of teams put together, and the play two legs against
each other and the winner advances. You can also make custom
seasons/cups. And the national teams are in.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Q.How do I play with two players?

A.On the PSX version, select your teams, and when you go to the
controller select screen, select the team you want to play with. If
you want to play on the same team together, select the same side.

For the PC, you'll need to connect two keyboards (I think) to play on
the same computer. But if you're playing over a LAN or modem, do the
same for the PSX.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Q.Also I have a question, I've just won the premiership and qualified for
Europe, but when I checked out my fixtures for the next season, Villa
aren't down to play anyone.  The fixtures appear for the first two-legged
games between everybody else - but no mention of Villa anywhere.  Is this
likely to change when it comes round to actually playing them, or do you
think I might have been banned as a result of resurrecting Sir Bobby?

If you don't have an answer to that one - let me know and I'll report
back my findings when the fixtures come around - I'm only three games
into the new season at the mo.

A.Just keep on playing, it'll pop up soon.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Q.Hi,

  I have been playing Fifa 2000 for a while trying to be the perfect
player, hopefully.Well...I am playing world class and can win the
World Cup using Singapore( the worst team).
  But one thing bugs me a lot.I can score about 9 or more goals using
the tricks I can think of without using any of those pass 30 degrees
for a sure pass and shoot for goal.I use a lot of use one touch
football, spins and shimmies,crosses. It doesn't work all the time
and when the opponent intercepts...especially teams using couter
attack mode...   I was using Singapore and I played Argentina in the
finals which ended 9-9!(loads of goalkeeping error : )). Argentina
used this irritating technique of crossing in from the area between
the halfway line and penalty box and my players can't recover to
catch the opposing player from heading to goal.Another trick they use
is a lob from their own half and head backwards AND backwards to put
their players through my off side trap.
  Basically, I don't know how to defend against their high
balls.Everytime they manage to cross the ball in, I can see their
player standing all alone as my defenders scramble to mark him.And
when I try to head the ball away, EVEN if I have 50-50 chance, my
player seems to get nudged away. I have no idea HOW to defend against
it.I thought of a few ways but none has even 50-50 chance of success.
  And then the CORNERs.As much as I mark them...they'll nudge my
players away.Maybe I should press "D" longer but then, how do I
position my players in front of the "AI" faster?.This basically
happens to more superior teams too.It is a matter of timing I
think...but how?.And how do you head backwards from a goal kick?
  BTW, I use 3-4-3, posession, man marking, pressure, short.This is a
PC version.

A.Defend against high balls? Well, usually what you'd do is head it
away, but I think you've tried to do that. If the players keep getting
seperated, try using zonal defense instead of man-to-man, or maybe
try changing formations (I'd suggest a 4-3-3 here, with a sweeper and
both central players pushed backward). You can mark players before
the corner is taken, so that might help a bit. Always hold S so that
you can head the ball away. And to head backwards from a goal kick?
Just hold S and press the D-Pad in the direction that you want to
head towards.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Q.Where's Turkey and Galatasaray?

A.Well, it seems like the forgetful people at EA forgot to add both
of those very good teams in there...however, if you have Fifa 2K for
the PC, go to http://www.fifa-mra.com and download their patch
software. Then go to www.fifarosters.co.uk and download the latest
patch, which should include up-to-date stats for Turkey and
Galatasaray (go Sukur!!!)

Ken-Hi! How's it going?

EA-Bringing the "world" game to life. I mean, virtual life. I mean, oh,
just shut up DC. You're confusing yourself.

www.fifa2000.net-Giving me those needed team updates, and all the latest
info. I've updated my Fifa2000 copy with the patch that they put up, I
recommend it.

GameFAQs, especially CJayC and VGStrategies, especially Al Amaloo-For
being the first to recognize me. Thank you for jump starting my FAQ
career!

Jay Jones-WHOO! What a great patch!!! All research done on the game is
probably based on his patch, but I did resort to default settings. But
get this, as it updates and includes more, good players.
