    This games is fundamentally broken when playing on Xbox live. The headers and tackles dont work properly. We have already had to donwload the 'fixed' version, yet it is still tat. Connecting to game is almost impossible and the header and tackels STILL dont work correctly. That is the last time I will be paying to playtest a game for codemasters. Oh dont forget the garish This games is fundamentally broken when playing on Xbox live. The headers and tackles dont work properly.

    Hmm, strange, this game gets NO reviews up until the day of release EXCEPT official Xbox magazine, lo and behold , I turn the game on and Official Xbox Magazine is plastered all over it.

    More worringly, they gave it a great review despite the fact the game is unplayable due to lag online. Plus the fact when your setting up an online match, BOTH people control the cursor to decide on

    The single player game seems to have sped up to the point of playing like a benny hill simulation but at least its playable. Do not expect to play this game online unless you like your 'lightening fast' games like slideshows

    and DONT GIVE CODEMASTERS YOUR MONEY UNTIL THEY RELEASE THE GAME PROPERLY. I dont expect to pay 8 quid to become a tester for codemasters.

    It plays a lightning-fast, ultra-competitive game, and the statistics are unbeatable in their completeness. [Oct 2007, p.96]
  2. One of those rare gems that stands the test of time, thanks to its near-flawless gameplay. And while the temptation must have been huge to overhaul the game for the next-gen release, it’s great to see that the SWOS developers didn’t cave to it. While the game may not be the prettiest game on the Marketplace, it’s certainly one of the most fun.

    Unlike most sports games that feel dated and tired years later, this one holds up quite well. It’s simple and fast, removing two of the hurdles many people find with the sport of soccer. The game also features an admirable amount of depth for a game that can be played with just a d-pad and the A button.
