  1. Official U.S. Playstation Magazine
    The game's secret weapon this year, though, is the ball-juggling minigame... I killed more hours trying to keep David Beckham's balls off the ground than I can reasonably justify. [Nov 2005, p.123]
  2. A delightful experience. The game truly captures the atmosphere of soccer.
  3. 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.
  4. A true upgrade over the previous version, and as I mentioned before, is the best handheld soccer game ever created.
  5. PSM Magazine
    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]

    Throw in a slightly Euro-trash sound track (with excellent play-by-play commentary) and a consistent and fluid control scheme and FIFA 06 is a great way for soccer fans to hook up for some foot-to-foot action via the online infrastructure mode or some solo season play.
  7. FIFA 06 is a very good game, but since it follows its predecessor by a little over six months it’s not a huge leap forward.
  8. 80
    Ultimately, FIFA is a fine game that vastly improves on the past PSP outings, but still isn't up to [Winning Eleven's] par.
  9. Game Informer
    It's fun to play, even if the managerial options of our season are missing. [Nov 2005, p.182]
  10. Detroit Free Press
    The animations ... are much smoother than the choppy ones in the initial PSP soccer offering, and the loading times have been cut dramatically.

    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.
