Mexican Invierno Infierno Patch now hosted here

With the unfortunate departure of Sam Tiessen and the departure of Nick Clarke, it looks like FIFA Gamer has lost their two big guns and seems like it may shutdown. Along with it would have gone Invierno Infierno, and we were not going to let the public miss out an amazing patch just because of the shutdown of an amazing site.

So, prepare to experience Invierno Infierno in its entirety here at FIFA MRA. I have been told that Invierno Infierno: Por Amor a La Camiseta has given a fresh look to FIFA 2000, so it won't be a waste of time to get it.

The patch is initially only available for the Spanish version of Fifa 2000 but will soon be available here in English.

World, say hello to the new wave of patches... the first from the FIFA MRA Team!! Visit the patch page for more info and to download this great patch!!!

  • A new old style bladder ball to recreate the great days of yesteryear.
  • Full name rosters for all of the squads included...
  • Live the days past experience in black and white!!! our patch will replace the classic mode, which has those skin tight uniforms of the 70s-early 90s and the long-sleeve old style uniforms of the 60s
  • A new G3 stadium, serving as the historical pitch these teams will play it out on, that will be unrelieved unless experienced!!!!
  • Old style goalkeeper kits that are plain but unique to the new world!!!!

Patch Reviews Coming Soon

Yep, if the Patches Database was not providing enough information regarding all the best Super Patches from around the world, we have now gained the services of an independent Patch Reviewer. His name is Andy Crome and I will let him introduce himself to you in a minute.

Andy will provide a fortnightly review of some of the most popular patches employing his own unique rating system which will give you a clear indication of a patches strengths and weaknesses. We hope this will prove to be a very popular feature as it will give an independent review of the great patches that are created from around the world.

Now, let me introduce Andy to you all, take it away Andy:

"Hello, I'm Andy and am 17 years old from Scotland. I have been a soccer fan for most of my life, a Dundee United supporter and have been playing soccer games since I was 10. I have been a fan of the FIFA games ever since they first appeared.

I believe that EA have let the public down with every new release of FIFA, making little use of the freedom that their license grants them. The patch makers are improving Fifa with their every release, and in becoming a Patch Reviewer I would hope to help support them in their efforts, and encourage those who would not usually think of downloading patches to take the time to do so!"

I am really looking forward to Andy's work with us and we will let you know as soon as his first review is released. We will attach each review to the patch in the Patches Database for easy reference.
