Conclusion: FIFA is a name that rings many bells for the football aficionados. Some of us may even prefer playing FIFA and forget the good old physical exercise. I have to mention that this game is not an easy one. It's not arcade, it's not quite a simulator, because EA did not forget that the PSP's primary purpose is to deliver a unique experience in small doses, but it's a pretty good title.

Is het misschien geen goed idee om eens een jaar over te slaan? Alleen dan zie ik de kloof tussen FIFA en PES verdwijnen. FIFA 06 is dus een degelijk spel, met enkele slordigheden.
