Excerpt: "...nearly upon us again - England will reach the quarter finals of this years World Cup in Germany and 99.9% of all English men with a pulse will become a football pundit for a month certain that this year is our year. I'm the 0.01% - I'm a realist and know that England will not win the World Cup again for real so I decided to buy England International Football for £12.97 pre-owned from Game so that I could bounce around my living room chanting champions ...
Excerpt: "...i did also get the England International football game as a xmas present, so obviously i gave it ago. I wasn't overally impressed with the design and layout of the start up pages and the team selection pages. I felt they could of put more effort into making it easier and more aesthetically pleasing. With regard to actual gameplay, it is more similar to Pro Evo than fifa, which is where my bias kicks in. I found the Eng. Int game a bit too difficult ...
Excerpt: "MY EXPERIENCE. I thought seeing as i hadn't done a games review for ages (see tiger woods 2004), that i would have a go at this one. I dont own this game, as people who have read my tiger woods review will know why, but I've hired it out from choices (popular shop that hires games, dvds and videos). I originally hired the game out for 2 nights, which cost me £3.75p seeing as its a new game. It was available to buy, at the usual price £39.99p, ...
Summary: I love this game the offline play is superb and the online play is even better there is nothin better than scoring a late free kick against France allowing you to beat one of your friends the tackling system is superb if you make a terrible tackle it is a booking or a red card there are some bad aspects to the game.
Summary: I think the tital relies too much on the fact that it is an England Official Product. Gameplay is not good at all. Tackling is hard, it's a sliding tackle or nothing. Passes and cut out, the AI is far far too hard, even on easy. It seems that all the teams are the same level. Latvia as good as France, just doesn't happen. The general game is flawed from start to finish. The only thing I liked, was I could put my own name on a shirt!!
Summary: This game is not the best graphically,nor does it have the best gameplay. However it is still quite good fun. Quite alot of the players look realistic (although shirts etc of other countries are pretty plain). Germany and Holland have made up names, however all the others are real. The main reason I bought the game was to play on Xbox Live. However there are major disconnection problems. Probably more than half your games disconnect from your opponents.
Summary: What I have to say is that this game is an excellent experience on Live, which will set the benchmark for other online football games in the future. But... while all problems are forgotten whilst playing online, they aren't in single player. The first annoying thing is that scoring is absolutely ridiculously disfficult. It really is hard. And when your opponent just runs down the end and effortlessly scores a goal, can be unforgiving.
Summary: England International Football is a significant improvement over their club series released last year, but it still isn’t in the EA FIFA League. Many of the problems experienced with the club game have been improved, although not ironed out altogether. The opposition AI is poor, Red cards seem completely random, you lose control of your own players and passes often go in different directions to where you’re pointing them.
Summary: I have been looking for a football game for the xbox since i got the console, I had played Fifa 2004, and didnt like the off the ball feature. I thought after this came along my prayers were answered, but no. Gameplay is sluggish to say the least, the computer will tackle you before you even have the ball, through balls are intercepted every time, crosses never find your players and the is no skill divide between Latvia and the top teams.
Summary: This game is revamped version of Club Football, only with full endorsement from the FA, and is the first Live enabled football game, ever. The Versus mode is better than you would expect with end-to-end passing and fluid movement. This swift action holds up well online, with a fast pace to the gameplay and rarely any noticeable slow-down. The headset also enables you to have a bit of banter with your opponent.
