                                  ~Review~
    
    EA Sports has rocked the chart again by their new game Fifa 2000.The
    game is improving with each of its version coming. It has become one
    of the best selling soccer games of the year 2000 - 2001. With this
    game, more and more American teams are coming into the big gaming
    screens. This game has improved a lot from the game Fifa '99. The
    graphics, the game play everything has changed even the Player Models
    ,for example: You can make your own Team, You can change the colour
    of Rivaldo, you can add hair to Zidane(he is bald).The animations are
    also really cool. But the commentatory is a bit boring, as it is
    found to be repetitive. Gameplay is quick in its pace. Player movements
    have come to a more systematic approach on the field but it has its
    defects.No one can change his speed or direction so fast but these
    players can. The speed is unbelievable to the eyes and everything
    happens so fast that a sudden attack from an opponent can never
    be negotiated very quickly. Music stays cool and soothing.
    
    But the game has a few drawbacks too. You will get bored very soon and and
    special shooting effects are like , tooo fast that you will never guess
    what had happened a minute ago.
    
    Anyway, If you want to try a game at an amateur stage, then this can be the
    game for you.

                              Intro (of the game)
    EA sports has done it again. The game Fifa 2000 became the best seller
    of the year. Many kinds of improvement took place within a span of
    time (1 year).More and more American teams are coming into the big gaming
    screens. Robbie Williams shows his skills in the game also, his
    song "Its only us" is very good. The songs are too good that we may
    spend time listening to them other than playing. There are also new
    Player editing techniques in the game. For more information you can
    go to the sites of the game.

                               Game Information.
    
    Now lets come to the game without wasting any more time. First, lets
    see about the game functions and lets look through the stats.
    
    Gameplay :
    It is a little outta shape.(you should know what I mean). The techniques
    happen too quickly. Too absurd i can say.
    so I have to give it
    -3.5/5 (not too good, not too bad)
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    Graphics :
    Graphics are cool. When you do a very rough tackle a movie comes
    in which you will get a card. See how the players move like in real
    life.
    So, I can give it a
    -4/5
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    Music    :
    Music is AWESOME. The Robbie Williams song is the best.
    So, it is
    -5/5
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    Commentatory :
    Commentatory is like ....y'know...not strong enough To keep our gaming
    spirits up. I can't say it is very good, because it is repetitive. At
    first it will seem good but after a few weeks of playing, it will be
    boring. So it is like a 2.5/5
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

                        8) The Different Kinds Of Difficulty
                           -------------Levels--------------
                                        ------
    
    There are Three difficulty levels in the game. They are:
    a) Amateur.
    b) Professional.
    c) World Class.
    
    The Following are each in detail.
    
    				 -+-+-+-+-
    				| Amateur |
     				 -+-+-+-+-
    
    This level is for the beginners. The method to score is very simple easy. An
    Expert
    Can shoot about 20 goals in about 10 minutes. (I do that).This level is
    like a Training Ground. The tips for shooting in this level are:-
    
    * When you start the match and you are taking the center, run with the
      ball down to the opponents defense area.
    * Run and dribble the ball very fast, otherwise the ball will go out of
      possession.
    * Even you can run towards the corner area and lob the ball into the
      box and do a bicycle shot into the net.
    * You can even run towards the goal keeper and hurdle and tap the ball
      in to the net. This picture might make it clear.
    
    
       _ _  net    Goal Keeper             player with the ball "YOU".
      /  | /    O /                    O   /
     /   |/    /|\         <--------  /|\ /
    |    |      |  ---------->         |
    |____|_    / \                   0/ \
    
    Assume that the goalkeeper is advancing at you and you advancing at him. Try it
    out and tell me if you have any troubles.
    
    
       _ _                          /The way you will go
      /  |      O                  /

    |    |      |   /      /       \
    |__0-|-----/ \ / \\___O/ -----> <--------to hurdle press L1 (See game controls
    section)
    controls)
               /          \
              /            Goal Keeper trying to steal the ball by sliding.
           "YOU"
    
    * Another trick is that when you near the goalkeeper alone without any
      opponent near you , and the goal keeper charge towards you. When that
      happens quickly change your track in which you are running like move
      a slight turn towards him (GK) or you can use the L2 button (see game
      controls section) , this is an easy method to score.

    				| Professional  |
     				 -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
    This is the place of the game which starts to be tough. It will be a
    little hard to move away from the opponents, so take care so that you wont
    lose the ball. If you lose the ball, then it will take some time for getting
    it back. You should not use any kind of aggressive tackle, because if you do
    you get a card <REMEMBER : THE GUYS ARE FAST>.
     Tips same as that of amateur but don't try to be fast. You
    can be fast but slow down occassionally. But don't slow down too
    much that the opponents could reach you .You will push him away but that
    wont help much, so be fast enough. And to deal with the goal keeper, don't
    shoot from far away 'cause the goal keeper can catch it very easily. And don't
    come too close too 'cause the goal keeper can come sliding too fast that you
    can
    not use the trick showed in the amateur section. If you are lucky, you can
    score.

    				 -+-+-+-+-+-+-
    				| World Class |
     				 -+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
    This is the toughest level of all. If you lose the ball and don't try
    to get it back ,then it is a sure goal. And if you try to use aggressive
    tackle then, Out comes the card, out goes the player. In this stage you
    should be very fast(very very fast) so that the opponents cant reach you(which
    never will happen).But in penalties the goalies are not so tough to co-operate
    with.
    But don't think of that too much, 'cause you will never get the chances to
    shoot
    penalties. I have never scored in this level, because the opponents are
    too strong.No tips in this stage because you know the cause. So readers
    help needed.

                           Questions and Answers
    1) How do u head the ball into the net from a cross or in particular
       corner kicks?
          -Lewis
    
    A) Well there are many chances of heading the ball into the net. The
       thing u should do is ,when the ball comes flying over head...see
       that it falls correctly to where u r standing. Then more backwards
       (little -max 3 steps)then charge forwards by pressing the shoot
       button...it will result in a diving header. BUT, this is a very
       tough attempt as we may be attacked by an opponent. You can also
       head by pressing the Triangle button.
    
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    2) How can you score direct without passing on a free kick [direct
       kick]?
          -Lewis
    
    A) I have never tried this ...But this is a very rare chance.
       All I can say is keep the shot low and hard. Interceptions take place
       a lot...like there will be interference of opponent players.

    3) How do we dribble in the game?
          - Blue Jay

                                 Hints and Secrets
                                 -----------------
    
    1) To head the ball to the net, send the ball to a player, & make sure
       you are holding circle[shoot button]. Tapping will perform a bicycle
       kick and stepping back will result in a diving header or a miss .
       	- Lewis
    
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    2) For the free kick, curve the ball around the wall of the defense
       using R1 or L1 + shoot button or send the ball into the top corner.
       *Remember that some goal keeper are very sharp and flexible than other
       ex [ Lazio, Parma,Barthez[Monaco], Schmeicael, former Manchester united
       keeper and David Seaman[Arsenal].If you are playing a season, try to
       use a club that is good but will not make it to Uefa or champions league,
       then buy a [ player named G Macbride from EA3, he is cheap to buy but
       has great skills] and try to win the title and qualify for next yr.
            - Lewis

    4) Find Pele as No. 10 in the Classic Brazilian Team.
