  1. We're floored by the effort; if EA Sports can fix a few minor niggles and implement ongoing audiovisual upgrades, we expect big things from the series.
  2. Bottom line, the game is fun to play. It is one of the reasons I do split time playing FIFA and MLS.
  3. When all is said and done, then, FIFA Soccer for the PSP is not only a great portable sports game, but a great sports game in its own right.
  4. One puzzling omission is a full career mode. [July 2005, p.86]

    Aside from the actual soundtrack, on the pitch noises are quite fine. Commentating is good and keeps up rather well with the action.
  6. 70
    The pieces are here there's just not enough polish and attention to detail to make this a heavyweight PSP soccer game.
  7. The effective loss of the "First Touch" control due to it's placement on the D-pad is a major blow to this game, and the frustration is only exacerbated by the graphic hiccups and long load times.

    What a wicked game. Truly one of the best ports to PSP yet, they managed to bring along all the big features from the console experience such as season play, Great commentary and sound. As well as some features that are found only on the PSP platform. A must buy! Expand

    GREAT SOCCER GAME, with really easy controlls, i don't understand why a lot of sites complained about the controlls. this game has everything a soccer fan can crave for. Expand

    It's probably the best soccer game you'll find on ANY handheld so you can't expect something that you play on the consoles.

    Good for a handheld-but a portable Winning Eleven/Pro Evolution Soccer would kick it's arse.
