International Superstar Soccer 2000 (officially abbreviated as ISS 2000 and released in Japan as Jikkyo J-League 1999: Perfect Striker 2 for the Nintendo 64 and as World Soccer GB 2000 for the Game Boy Color in Japan) is the second game in the Nintendo 64 Perfect Striker series and the last in Konami's Jikkyo Soccer series of N64 games developed by Konami Computer Entertainment Osaka. For the North American and European release in 2000 the rosters were updated. Introduced in the North American and European versions, it was the first and only game in the series to support the high resolution mode through an expansion pack however it suffered from some performance issues.

ISS 2000 is also notable for being the only game in the series which included players with real names, though these players only appeared in the North American release, and no team had a 100% real roster.

Featured Teams[edit]

International Superstar Soccer 2000 features one of the most comprehensive team rosters in football video games, with exactly 108 teams in total. Particularly, every nation affiliated to UEFA at the time is present, since one of the game modes consists of a European Championship on the same format as the UEFA Euro (which had an edition that year), including the qualifying round.

The Japanese version features J.League teams instead of international teams. It also includes different crowd chants for each team, a feature that was removed from the western releases.

Success Mode[edit]

The Japanese version also features a career mode called "Success". This mode exists in the European release but was removed from the North American.


On release, Famitsu magazine scored the nintendo 64 version of the game a 34 out of 40.[1]
