  1. It has made the game feel more responsive and added more immersion thanks to the fans’ animations and various chants.

    Although the game won't make its competitors sweat, it will definitely make them keep an eye out for future World Tour Soccer games. [June 2004, p.86]
  3. 76
    The pieces don’t fit completely together and the delay in the control takes the blame for that one. Combine that with a basic camera that could be doing a lot more to show off the action and the experience loses a bit of its luster in practice.
  4. World Tour Soccer 2005 is undone by the delay between button pressing and action on the screen. If it ran smoothly it would probably give Winning Eleven 7 a run for its money this year. However, the delay destroys any possibility of that happening.
  5. What it basically boils down to is long animation run times and, as a result, the system taking a second or two to recognize player input for the next movement. [Aug 2004, p.7]
  6. Compare it to the user-friendly “FIFA 2004” and the overall-perfection of “Winning Eleven 7" though, and WTS ‘05 comes up way short.
  7. All commands are delayed by a second or two because of the stock animation that plays out. I found myself furiously tapping the controller as if the problem was a defective button that just wouldn't listen.
