  1. Not only did EA fail to put in any significant new features; not only did they serve up a plate of castrated game features; not only has the core gameplay taken several measurable steps backwards for the genre, but the graphics, conceivably the most basic measure of the game’s prospective success, are not only unimpressive, but buggy, distorted, and ugly. Color me shocked.

    If you still own an Xbox or PlayStation 2, there's absolutely no reason to purchase this game. Especially since it'll cost you $10 more and offers about 25 percent of the content.
  3. To describe what EA has produced here as dreadful would be to do a terrible disservice to things that merely inspire dread.

    Let it be made perfectly clear, FIFA 06: Road to the World Cup is the Xbox 360’s turkey.

    Good first effort - but the new FIFA that just released kills this one. Lack of teams and a rushed feel to the mechanics of the game make Good first effort - but the new FIFA that just released kills this one. Lack of teams and a rushed feel to the mechanics of the game make this rate a lot lower than other titles. Full Review »
