07's presentation is excellent and the game offers solid visuals
throughout. The players themselves are nicely rendered with excellent
attention to detail. Each one looks and moves as their real world
counterpart would, and has similar abilities and skill levels. You can
also select from multiple camera angles and levels of zoom allow you to
get a good look at the action while the menus and interface are very easy
Excerpt: Will EA's FIFA 07 have the legs to challenge Konami's Pro Evolution Soccer 6 this time around... The answer to that question looks like being a firm yes. Of course, this version of the FIFA series is the most extensive to date with 27 leagues from 20 nations, which include the FA Premier League, Bundesliga, French League, MLS (America), J- League (Japan) and K-League (Korea).
Excerpt: EA Sports' motto, as long as I can remember, has always been “it's in the game”. That hasn't always been the case for some sports titles from EA, but FIFA Soccer 07 for the PlayStation Portable is full of game modes, teams, uniforms and stadiums, immersing you “in the game” like no other soccer game on a handheld gaming device has ever done before. FIFA 07 is a game that should keep you entertained for a good amount of time.
Conclusion: Although FIFA 07 is certainly the visual revolution we were expecting on Xbox 360, the gameplay is a bit of a step backwards for the series. Take the realistic ball and player physics for example: they’re a welcome addition and are undoubtedly a marked improvement over the restrictive preset animations featured in previous FIFAs, but it’s not as refined as we hoped it would be.
Conclusion: FIFA 07 voor de Xbox 360 had een open doelkans om PES 6 het leven zuur te maken. Vergeet niet, PES 6 is niet meer de onoverwinnelijke kanjer van vorig seizoen en de gameplay in FIFA 07 is beter dan ooit, met onafhankelijke balphysics en prima animaties. Hoe hebben ze het dan in ‘s hemelsnaam laten liggen? In de gecastreerde hoeveelheid content.
