FIFA Football 2004, also known as FIFA Soccer 2004 in North America and commonly known as FIFA 04 or FIFA 2004, is a football video game developed by EA Canada and published by Electronic Arts. It was released in October 2003 with the tagline "Create Brilliance".

FIFA Football 2004 is the eleventh game in the FIFA series and the eighth to be in 3D. While not adding much to the engine used in FIFA Football 2003, the biggest inclusion were secondary divisions, which allowed the player to take lower ranked teams into the top leagues and European matches. Gameplay had a new feature dubbed Off the ball, which required the player to control two players at the same time to execute some plays. The online mode was boasted as the main feature. Another key feature was the Football Fusion, which allowed owners of both FIFA 2004 and TCM 2004 to actually play games from the management sim'. The title sequence was filmed in St James' Park, the home of Newcastle United, with the opening song being Kings of Leon's European hit "Red Morning Light".

The cover featured Alessandro Del Piero in Juventus colours, Thierry Henry wearing his Arsenal shirt and Ronaldinho dressed in Brazil's kit.

Reviews

Reviews of the game were mostly positive. Official U.S. PlayStation Magazine awarded the game 5 out of 5 whilst Official UK Playstation Magazine scored the game 8 out of 10. As for the Xbox version it was given a 8.4 out of 10 and a 7.8 out of 10 for the PC version on GameSpot. On GameSpot, it was said that "you'd be crazy not to give it a try" if you're interested in sports. But there were some criticisms for example the commentary being repetitive and too easy to score if you put power on the ball. But overall it was seen as a great game and was played by many in the gamers world for a few years after its release. Since then newer FIFA versions are played.
