  1. 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.
  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. FIFA is still doomed to feel a little stiff due to its reliance on set animations to govern play, and there are plenty of frustrating AI mistakes that linger. [Oct 2005, p.128]
  5. Though always attempting to up the ante on their long time rival, this year's FIFA actually seems more of a step back when compared to the 2005 iteration.
  6. 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.
  7. 60
    It's tough to keep calling FIFA on issues of accuracy, especially when Konami seems to have soccer realism cornered.

    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 Expand

    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. Expand
