  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. Nintendo Power
    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. 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.
  7. 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.
