  1. Strikes a great balance between simplicity and flexibility. [Dec 2005, p.165]
  2. Its lack of variety in the game mode department will turn off those gamers who love the FIFA Soccer series but at least it plays well enough to keep soccer fans busy until next year’s game.
  3. For those wanting a fully featured franchise experience (with club teams) and a better set of online options, waiting for "FIFA 2007" might be the way to go.
  4. My biggest complaint about FIFA is its name. It simply isn’t a FIFA game, it should simply be called World Cup 06 or something that accurately describes it and distinguishes it from the game that EA wants you to believe it is when you’re buying it.
  5. It might come as a surprise, but I would actually have preferred a direct conversion of FIFA 06 to this.
  6. Unless you’ve got an urgent need to launder $60, there’s not a single reason to go out and buy FIFA 06 for the Xbox 360. Go out and by the far superior (and cheaper) FIFA 06 for the PS2 or Xbox – both versions are excellent.
  7. To describe what EA has produced here as dreadful would be to do a terrible disservice to things that merely inspire dread.
