    Just bring a magazine to read while the game loads. [Mar 2006, p.113]

    It's a shame the somewhat barebones package doesn't give gamers more of an excuse to come back to the excellent soccer engine.
  3. But with fewer buttons on the PSP than on a standard console game pad and only one analog stick to play with, the game's hallmark -- its deep, precise controls -- feels a bit muted.

    This game is definitely good. The controls are easy to pick up; anybody can start up a game, start dribbling around, make a few passes, and This game is definitely good. The controls are easy to pick up; anybody can start up a game, start dribbling around, make a few passes, and shoot a few shots. Additional moves, like trapping and touch passes, are available for those who have mastered the basic controls. The analog stick feels responsive, and button layout feels just right. What most fans of the franchise will be dissapointed with the lack of "Master League" mode, this is not enough to detract from the fun of the game. The various club leagues and national leagues can be played, as well as an "Internationall League" where you can create your own fantasy league to play in. There's no way to increase your players' skills over the course of the season (aside from editing their actual stats in the game's expansive editing mode) but they do have good days and bad days, affecting their performances respectively. The graphics, from the opening movie to the in-game ones, are superb. Everything is crisp, and the ball is easily detected on the PSP screen. The audience cheers (Like O-lay, o-lay o-lay o-lay), the animations are realistic, and the overall ambience of the stadium is incredible. The refs give out a lot of fouls, however. This does not detract from the game experience, however, as it simply encourages the player to use less slide-tackling and more careful defending. All in all, if you're looking for a solid sports game (at a cheaper price than FIFA 06), then get this game. It will provide you with many hours of enjoyment and entertainment. Even if you're not a rabid soccer fan, lacing up these cleats and stepping onto the field is a real treat. Plus, for those of us that are already frustrated by Madden 06's touchy passing game, this "football" is a welcome diversion. Full Review »

The game play The game has excellent graphics, playability is below poor. The PSP's design was definetely NOT made for a game like this. The game play itself is not great, I am a #1 fan of the Playstation 2 series of winning elevens, but I'm very upset with my purchase. I am trading the game in today. Sorry to the #1 fans (like myself). I have been waiting for this game since I first bought my PSP. VEERY disappointed to say the least... But again, grafics are awesome, the players look extremelly real, it has everything to the a great game. the playability is just not there like the PS2 versions. Full Review »
