    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 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. Expand

  1. Leading your opponent, playing the ball to space, and plenty of modifier options (chip passes, various dribble moves) are all present and accounted for, giving the game the realistic tempo the series has become famous for. [Mar 2006, p.84]

    The action is fluid and intuitive, for starters, and player AI shines. It's amazing that the development team is able to continually refine and tweak the title to continually improve our virtual soccer experience. Still, there is plenty of room for improvement.
  3. Konami's annual soccer franchise, which has scored in the past for its slick controls, wads of teams, and shin-splintin' graphics, returns to the field to affirm its ball-kicking dominance.
