FIFA 98: Road to World Cup

FIFA 98: Road to World Cup is a Nintendo 64 football video game developed by EA Canada and published by Electronic Arts. It was the fifth game in the FIFA series and the second to be in 3D on the 32-bit machines. A number of different players were featured on the cover, including David Beckham in the UK, Roy Lassiter in the USA and Mexico, David Ginola on the French cover, Raúl on the Spanish cover and Andreas Möller on the German cover. FIFA 98 was the last FIFA game released for the Sega Mega Drive in Europe.

Features

The game noticeable the start of an upward trend in the series that marked it out as potentially the best gaming simulator for the sport in the world. The game was revolutionized, boasted an official soundtrack, had a refined graphics engine, team and player customization options, 16 stadiums, better AI and the popular “Road To World Cup” mode, with all FIFA-registered national teams. The most ambitious of the entire series, it even features many accurate team rosters with even national reserves for national call up when playing in the round robin qualification modes. In addition 11 leagues were featured along with 189 clubs. It was also the first FIFA game to contain an in-game player/team editor. The theme music for the game was included, with Blur's Song 2. Four songs from The Crystal Method were also included in the game – More, Now is the Time, Keep Hope Alive and Busy Child – as well as a song by Electric Skychurch entitled Hugga Bear. Des Lynam was retained for the game introduction and John Motson and Andy Gray remained as match commentators. With the new graphical improvements, players were able to have recognisable faces. The faces looked more like expressions, though, as the starting elevens of Bulgaria and Ukraine could consist of “sad”-looking players, while the starting eleven of Macedonia could have “tough”-looking players.
