Released faster than it took to write his cheque!!

Excerpt: The fact that the game only cost £7.97 for a pre-owned copy in 2004 should have set the alarm bells ringing that this was a game that couldn't be literally given away by the people at Game but with a morbid fascination with all things football related and not wanting to at that stage part with £39.99 for FIFA 2004 I opted to buy David Beckham Soccer for the X-Box and quickly realised that the man himself will put his name to any old dross in an attempt to make a quick...
Pros: Wide range of game options
Cons: poor gameplay - difficult controls - average graphics
Excerpt: Firstly no no no no. Don't go anywhere near this game i did and have regretted it. I bought and thankfully 1 month later my little brother broke it. It has the most appauling gameplay ever. They try to make out Beckham is the greatest and really he ain't. firstly the graphics are appauling and the gameplay is really slow. In fact even the crowds in he backgroun are crap and really it's i'm really lost for words.
Excerpt: Well what can I say about this I could say that with the dismal graphics and the featuring of Englands Current national enemy Number one this game really isn't worth the hassle of going and buying it, but I won't this is simply because when i bought the game I obviously wasn't expecting the great graphics and playability of FIFA or the finesse of the game which is Pro Evolution.
Excerpt: To have his name associated with such an appalling soccer title must be his biggest embarrassment to date..apart from when Victoria says something embarrassing about him..

Summary: I'm fairly new to the world of Xbox - in fact, the last time I avidly played such games was back in 1984/5/6 on my Amstrad CPC464 but even then, there were some great football games (Match Day and Match Day 2) and some pretty awful ones, the names of which escape my memory these days. Sadly, David Beckham Soccer falls into the second category.
