  1. A delightful experience. The game truly captures the atmosphere of soccer.
  2. Evidently, EA Sports has been hard at work these past six months, because FIFA 06 not only addresses the aforementioned problems, but also adds online play and an entertaining ball-juggling minigame to the mix.
  3. With the camera pulled back so far, the ball can get pretty tiny. Other than that, it's all solid, and a big improvement on last season. [Nov 2005, p.98]
  4. It's fun to play, even if the managerial options of our season are missing. [Nov 2005, p.182]

    It's smoother, feels better and doesn't feel so much like a PS2 game squeezed into a PSP's body.
  6. Initially it appears that EA have been happy to just release last year’s version albeit with an unneeded visual lick of plaint and this season’s player/team data; further play however reveals that the game actually takes a step backwards in many areas.
