  1. There isn't a world of difference between this game and last October's FIFA 06, but it's a worthy upgrade for those who have World Cup fever. [Jun 2006, p.86]
  2. The Gameboy Advance version is decent, but it doesn't come close to capturing the World Cup as well as the console versions or even the DS version.
  3. 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.
  4. It may well offer you the chance to take your favourite team through the qualifying stages and into the World Cup finals, but the game's poor animation and simple tactics make it a completely lackluster experience.
