Summary: Forget FIFA. This is THE soccer game, and most console gamers in Europe and Asia don't bother with anything else. Sure, many of the player names are not authentic (but you can still use the editor to correct them and change their attributes, etc.
Summary: Winning eleven does not have all of the feautures ea's fifa soccer has. Some teams do not have the real names and some do, and the club teams are not actualized and they do not use real names.
Summary: For years, EA Sports' FIFA series has been the definitive soccer game in the U.S. However, Konami's Winning Eleven 6, which has been the most popular soccer game in Europe and Japan all these years, makes FIFA look like Midway's Red Card games, which is not necessarily a bad thing.
From a soccer fan, a video game fan: simply the best game.

Summary: I have played all the soccer games in all kinds of consoles, from Pele's soccer in atari, Goal for nintendo, ISS for Nintendo 64, and of course EA sports Fifa series from the 92 or 93 version to 2003.
Summary: I bought this game after playing and conquering FIFA 2003. I was very unhappy with Fifa and sold it wihtin severals week after buying it. I was reluctant to buy any other soccer game on the PS2, until my friend inform me that this game was a much better game.
Summary: This is the most realistic soccer game available today. But hard to play... Be prepared to spend a lot of time learning it. This is a little different from the Japanese version, so don't expect the exact same game.
Summary: I used to be a fan of EA Sports FIFA soccer games but having played Winning Eleven I will never go back. Winning Eleven delivers a stunningly realistic soccer experience that requires concentration, creativity, and patience. It truly does make FIFA look like child's play.
