    It's smoother, feels better and doesn't feel so much like a PS2 game squeezed into a PSP's body.

    Meanwhile, the other kids, with their super accurate Casio watches and Dunlop trainers, will take one look at the Wayne Rooney adorned menus and go straight back to "Pro Evolution Soccer 5," smiling quietly, knowing that they, yet again, have the better game.

    Anyone who is an arcade soccer fan would be best advised to pickup "World Tour Soccer," and if you're a simulation fan then it is highly advisable that you wait for "Pro Evolution Soccer 5" to come to the PSP.

    Normally, FIFA 06 wouldn't be such a bad game, but I feel that it basically just feels like a launch title.
  5. 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.

    FIFA's class is not in doubt, but for a series already in a clear state of transition, the move to a new platform is a bridge too far. [Christmas 2005, p.117]

    I think it is a great game especially the online part of it.

    A big improvement over the original PSP FIFA. It's far from perfect - controls still aren't great and theres graphical glitches, A big improvement over the original PSP FIFA. It's far from perfect - controls still aren't great and theres graphical glitches, but it's still extremely fun, has plenty of features including online mode, and the juggling minigame is worth the upgrade alone. Gameplay wise it's no Winning Eleven, but I actually perfer the PSP version of FIFA, if only due to the amount of things they packed into the game. Full Review »

    Truly cannot understand how users could give this 9 or 10. Graphics are PS1 standards and is very limited in gameplay. Not reccomended.
