  1. Competent, joyless football by numbers. But if you don't already own a FIFA game of some description, or you're an Accrington fan, you'll get your money's worth. [Nov 2006, p.56]

    It is sad to see the press systematically underrating the Fifa games. In the actual case, they clearly didn't do their homework (please, It is sad to see the press systematically underrating the Fifa games. In the actual case, they clearly didn't do their homework (please, reviewers, spend a bit more time on a game before rating it). I've played the Fifa games for the last 5 years. Yes, there's been some bad years for the franchise, but this year, EA sports really outdid itself: Refined and more precise control, better AI, way more variety and realism in the animations and cut scenes (handballs, and shameful own goals must be seen), incredible stadium atmosphere, excellent commentary (though it was better under the John Motson and Ally McCoist duo). And that's for the action part. In addition, you get the most complete version of the game outside the pitch: Very strong manager mode, tournament, create a team, create a player, unlockables, FIFA lounge, and tons more. Personally, I tried both FIFA and Winning Eleven, and there is no clear winner, both are excellent games. Full Review »
