  1. Hardcore soccer fans who wanted even more realism from this series will enjoy playing around with the new controls but if you're a player who thought "FIFA 2005" wasn't a great game might as well rent this game or stay away from it cause you won't be missing much.

    It's tough to keep calling FIFA on issues of accuracy, especially when Konami seems to have soccer realism cornered.
  3. On the occasions when the game flows it's possible to produce some breathtaking football, but all too often the game slows to a crawl and it's extremely difficult to produce anything like a constructive passing move. [Nov 2005, p.116]
  4. Oh EA what have you done; we we're getting to enjoy FIFA once again and now this. We're never ones to severely criticise an average game, however FIFA 06 beggars belief.
  5. Gameplay has always been the staple of a good Soccer game, and when playing against the computer, FIFA '06 just doesn't have it like "FIFA 2005" did.
  6. If the players had some personality to go with their looks, this could have been the best FIFA yet. [NGC]

    Now more than ever if you haven't already started to look at "Pro Evo" perhaps you should, it plays much better and feels like more a game of football than FIFA 06 ever will.

    I found it hard to make good plays, difficult to score, response time was poor, the four offensive tactics offered do not really work as they I found it hard to make good plays, difficult to score, response time was poor, the four offensive tactics offered do not really work as they should, and it seems like all the wonderful moves and plays carried out by the CPU cannot be done by a human player. In terms of gameplay this game has a LOT of room for improvement (as with all EA games), as for graphics and sound it's done a pretty good job. Overall, typical of all EA games, bad gameplay, good graphics. Full Review »

    I think that Fifa 06 is tight but I still think think 2005 was better in 06 you cant see the spot focus when taking a free kick the gameplay I think that Fifa 06 is tight but I still think think 2005 was better in 06 you cant see the spot focus when taking a free kick the gameplay is slower than 2005.07 would B the best by far if EA join 2005 with 06 in terms of gameplay Full Review »
