  1. The game is fundamentally sound and makes good use of the second, touch screen of the Nintendo DS.
  2. 81
    There's certainly room for improvement, but FIFA '06 was a shocker to boot up because of just how focused the game design is.
  3. The touch screen may be a bust for controlling the action on the pitch, but it's awesome for painting custom team crests. [Dec 2005, p.121]
  4. The good news is that the game plays an enjoyable match of soccer, makes decent use of the handheld's second screen, and boasts the same high level of presentation that we've come to expect from EA Sports in recent years.
  5. 60
    An average attempt at soccer on the DS. EA appear to have tried to produce a fully fledged soccer game but we cannot help but feel that the DS version is stripped down.
  6. FIFA 06 set me up good. During the first half of the first match, I was all set to be completely amazed. Then I went four goals up before the thirtieth minute and things went downhill from there.
