Advantages: quality visuals
Disadvantages: touchy shooting controls
Around the world, but a new campaign has been accompanied by various teams to be able to claim trophy, as the volume of their “regular season” championship, a special “League Cup”, or two, even strike their claims in the global tournament. Teams then get relegated or promoted from one to another on the basis of efficiency. Can you imagine if the Kansas City Royals are playing to avoid the young people?
If all this sounds biased, EA Sports’ fantastic FIFA 07 will clear away the clouds as he immerses you in a difficult life, a soccer club manager. This authentic simulation contains so many different leagues, teams and departments to all hard-pressed to claim their favorite party is not represented. Better yet, all are equipped with real players and legal uniforms, the ads plastered across the front of them (other characteristic that causes the American football to furrow brows in confusion).
Several entertainment-for-a-few-minute mini-games provide temporary diversion, but Superstar Challenge has legs. Serving the tenth bite-size chunks of the situation gobs of different teams, you can drop in at the right moments during the past few seasons. Of course there are the obligatory ad-hoc and Internet multiplayer options.
About the only thing that proved frustrating shot decisions. It takes a nice touch the ball past the goalkeeper and the opportunity is more than a few attempts to sail on the road or rough around the goal. We are not suggesting that the shooting should be simple – that is, after all, football and scoring is always in premium – but it seems that the slightest twitch on the analog core results in off-goal attempt, then quickly stream and profanity (in our case anyway).
Even after shot hypersensitive controls, we believe that this year FIFA May match evenly with Konami’s latest colleague, is scheduled for later this autumn (we hear your cries for blasphemy, Winning Eleven fanatics – you get a chance to prove us wrong). Regardless, handheld EA’s latest effort gives footy fans at least one guaranteed winner on their hands – and maybe at the end of terror for many American sports nut.
Summary: great to play
