Summary: EA has some great sports games. The Fight Night series and Madden NFL are good examples. Simply put, this is not one of the great ones. The FIFA licenced leagues and players are the best feature. The graphics are good, and the menus are nice. The music is really good. The stadiums fail to impress. The first touch concept is right-on, but the controls don't deliver. The players are stiff and the physics are lackluster. The AI is more artificial than intelligent.
Summary: This game is okay. But, as some people said, it is easy to blow it during a game i.e. foul. But, for the visuals, it is perfect. It is better than the previous FIFA game. Overall, it is okay but with some improvements on it in the future games.
Summary: First of all,DO NOT LISTEN TO ANYONE WHO says THIS IS OK OR BAD<IT ROCKS BIG TIME.Actually I dont own this game but i have played it lots of times at my friends house.This game is to realistic to be true. WE can actually dribble with the ball without using any tricks me and my fried do it every time.
Summary: EA Sports should be stripped of thier rights to all the teams and KONAMI should have the ability to have The Arsenal instead of North London. If you are under 10 years old and never wathched soccer before then this might be the game for you. A real fan of the beautiful game would be better off getting Winning Eleven. EA lost the plot years ago...I think the last EA game I really enjoyed was FIFA World Cup 98.
Summary: I never played playstation/XBox games in my life before. Bought this for my nephew, and while he was playing, I thought he was watching a live game - the graphics are so natural. I was so impressed that I started playing myself, and for a first timer, it was very easy to play. You can control the players movements, kicks, etc etc... as if you are really playing. I also tried some other war games he has, but I came back to this game.
Summary: I am a long time FIFA soccer player. I have every game on PS and PS2 going back to 1998 and some of the older games on Nintendo. This use to be my favorite legacy series of any game out there. Every year it keeps getting worse. I just played 2005 for the first time tonight and what a disappointment. I am an advance player and was shocked to find that the shooting aspect is pathetic. I am outshooting the other team by a 4 to 1 margin and I rarely score.
Summary: I have play EA sports FIFA games since the first one, and this is the best game of the series. The control of the ball and players are better than fifa 2004, also the First Touch Ball is the best thing in a soccer videogame, just take Ronaldinho of Barcelona and start dribling players; is worth the purchase of the game; you just wont beliave what you did, when watching the replay!
