One of the most notable Mexican players of the 1990s, Campos was a particularly eccentric player, known for his constant play outside the penalty area, his acrobatic style in goal, and his colorful attire. His strength in goal was his leaping ability and speed, which made him able to overcome his relatively short height for the position he played at, having had been officially billed at 5 ft 8 in (1.73 m), although he is actually a few inches smaller, namely 5 ft 6 in (1.68 m), making him the smallest goalkeeper to achieve absolute greatness in his chosen profession. He was able to underline the latter on a worldwide stage during the 15th staging of the FIFA World Cup in 1994.
Campos also made for an effective striker, an example of rare versatility in football. At times, he would start a game in goal, and transfer upfield later in the match, mostly at the club level. His trademark, self-designed bright kits contributed to his popularity.
