  1. The whole game plays faster than FIFA 2006, as here EA has managed to set the perfect pace for soccer.
  2. 90
    In all, 2006 FIFA World Cup is a no-brainer buy for soccer fans and is at least worth a rental for everyone else. [Jun 2006, p.82]
  3. The Xbox 360 is technically superior with no slowdown but it does lose out some features that the current-generation versions have.
  4. The World Cup format alone could have set 2006 FIFA World Cup apart from FIFA 06. Instead EA tweaked the gameplay and came away with yet another winner. Guiding any of 127 countries through qualification gives the game much needed depth.
