    It's certainly very enjoyable, it's incredibly slick, and packed with features, but it still loses out a little to Konami's game on that difficult-to-quantify quality; feel.
  2. The gameplay is extremely solid, the managerial mode is surprisingly deep and the additional features make FIFA 06 a great sports addition for fans of the sport.
  3. It exceeds even last year's excellent game in almost every way.
  4. A true upgrade to the previous years, and as I mentioned before, is possibly the best version of the series since its inception.
  5. FIFA 06 is a great game for both soccer novices and enthusiastic players alike, and is a worthy investment to a soccer fan's entertainment library.
  6. Attacking and formation options require time to appreciate, but the game's overall look, feel and flow make it time well spent. [Nov 2005, p.106]
  7. A delightful experience. The game truly captures the atmosphere of soccer.

    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 is slower than 2005.07 would B the best by far if EA join 2005 with 06 in terms of gameplay Full Review »
