Excerpt: Any respectable gamer knows that fall is the season for an avalanche of new releases. And as years pass, many of them are only new versions of well-known titles. Such a title is EA Sports' FIFA which has a history stretching...
Excerpt: The FIFA Football games have been with us from what seems like the start of time (1994 to be exact) and most of these games have been highly successful and worthy of any football fan's time. The first and arguably only real rival for the FIFA series is Konami's Pro Evolution Soccer which has gone from strength to strength in recent years.

With the popularity of soccer expanding more and more into the U.S., coupled with the already ravenous fans of Europe and elsewhere, this game should once again sell some serious units.
