  1. Although it comes not so long after FIFA 06, the additional game modes and features may be enough to qualify it as a purchase for many.
  2. 2006 FIFA World Cup is easy enough for a soccer novice to pick up and enjoy, but deep enough in detail and difficulty options to please the hardcore futbol fan. Though not beyond figuring out, more detailed in-game explanations or tutorials could have only helped make this game more accessible.

    2006 FIFA World Cup is far from being a lackluster soccer game - in fact, it's this year's best one so far. But after being impressed with the first FIFA game on the DS last October, the follow-up doesn't do enough to justify a second purchase.
  4. 2006 FIFA World Cup on the DS is a mixed bag of things that work well and things that don't. [Jun 2006, p.86]
  5. 2006 FIFA World Cup captures all the excitement of the world's biggest football tournament, but the flashy presentation hides a real lack of depth.
  6. If I would recommend one of the two, I’d say get the DS version, but to be safe get none of those two and go for one of the console versions.
  7. None of the mini-games are particularly enjoyable, but they’re there, and they break the monotony as well as provide you with some practice.
