Only worth it if you have an HDTV
by AMRand on February 8, 2006
Pros: Graphics & Online Play
Cons: Gameplay is shotty, no depth whatsoever

Summary: There really isn't much to be said about this game when you come right down to it. Probably because there isn't much to the game. If you have an HDTV then the great graphics do make the game worth while. If you don't, then I really wouldn't bother.
The gameplay is shotty at points and beating defenders one on one is difficult. The game also has no depth at all and lacks any sort type of features. The 'Road to the World Cup' mode is pretty lame and ends with a congratulatory 'You Qualified for the World Cup'. That's it. The game ends there.
Online play is the only thing besides the graphics that makes redeems this game.
If you still have your original Xbox hooked up, no question stick with 2006. I am still boiling over the fact that 2006 isn't compatible on 360. Smart business move, yes, but come on.
Only buy this game if you have an HDTV, are hooked up to live, and adore the Fifa series. Other than that, you are wasting $60.
Very Fun, but nervreracking

Pros: GRAPHICS, always fun, sound
Cons: Shooting, Instructions

Summary: I love this game, but dang, doesn't anybody else miss the old FIFA WORLD CUP game? Didn't anybody love how on the FIFA 02 you could determine how much power to put on your shot, instead of either way too much power or way too little? This is a great game, but the sensitivity of shooting has to go. I still don't know how to move my goalie one way or another on a shootout. And this can't just be me, but did anybody else like curving a corner kick and making a goal that way? Now that was fun! I liked making shots from 25 feet out of the goal box, because that stuff happens, this game makes it look like you always have to be 5 feet from the goal. Great Game, but lots of room to improve upon.
Better on 360

Cons: Lack of extras

Summary: I almost completely gave up on EA games. Around Fifa 2004, the game play became worst and worst. Mostly with players doing the runaround, difficulty switching to the next LOGICAL character, and weird last minute “game breaker” drive that brings the impossible. Yes the stupid “game breaker” from the street versions of the game seem to have been hidden in the old fifa games just without the obvious and annoying graphics that come with it.
WOW what a significant improvement with 360. The runaround is almost gone; the invisible force field that protected the attacking player when making a last minute long push is almost all gone, and the play is just very fluid.
Some things still there that must go. If you are the defender and you are way back and you must clear the ball to the other side, why does it always go out? Why when attacking and you want to pass back, the ball still goes forward, and why when passing, the ball always goes to the player offside. Finally the game play must be much faster, if I hit pass, it should immediately pass, not when the graphics on the foot hit the ball.
Now these problems are in the old fifa games, but with the other problems gone, these are dealable.
Now if they a allowed you to create your own players and teams, that would rock. They have the ability, because it is in the other games, it just didn’t carry over, probably to protect the upgrade to 2007.
One point - My sister thought I was watching a soccer match!!!
by mouseclick on December 1, 2005
Pros: Excellent graphics, great gameplay - and I'm not even much of a soccer fan
Cons: Ummmmm. There's always room for improvement.
Summary: There is simply no way this game is inferior to the Xbox version, as CNET's review indicates. As I was playing, my sister walked in the room and said "...
Summary: There is simply no way this game is inferior to the Xbox version, as CNET's review indicates. As I was playing, my sister walked in the room and said "you're watching soccer?" (I'm not a huge soccer fan so, she was surprised). I told her I was playing and she looked again for a second or two before realizing it was not a real match. HDTV! That's all you need to hear to know this is better than the previous. Gameplay is good - in fact, addicting. It can be a bit annoying the first 3-4 matches, but once you start to figure out strategies for success, this game is incredibly fun. Cons... OK, there are some... the manual is horrible - it only gives you the most basic instructions for controls (I still haven't figured out how to move my golie during a penalty kick). But overall, you will not go wrong with this game (I write all this assuming you will play it on a large widescreen HDTV).
