Operation Sports have posted a Q&A with Danny Isaac, Associate Producer of FIFA Soccer 2004 in which they ask a few questions about the progress of the game and what changes we can expect:
Operation Sports: In FIFA 2003 trying to pass the ball to a teammate usually resulted in the other player dropping back in coverage, as if he couldn't decide whether to play offense or defense, has this been fixed?
Danny Isaac: Hmmm, not sure what you mean by this. As mentioned before our positioning behavior has advanced significantly in FIFA 2004. All the players react much more like their real life counterparts.
