Conclusion: All in all, this is a respectable freshman effort from Touchstone and Propaganda Games. Turok is fairly solid technically, very compelling via its good storytelling and proper direction and somewhat interesting gameplay-wise with its mixture of human/dino enemies and stealth/traditional combat. Turok , however, is still a bit too familiar and cookie cutter to compete with the big boys of the FPS genre.

Conclusion: EA I have to admit, FIFA 07 surprised the heck out of me. It is a phenomenal game of soccer this year and the little tweaks and touches that were added really do make all of the difference. It looks great, sounds great, plays great, and features a ton of real world teams and players which all add up to a fantastic soccer game that fans will love. Is it better than Winning Eleven 9? I’m honestly not sure. You’ll have to see for yourself.
Excerpt: EA's advertising for this year's FIFA has been pretty straight to the point. " This is the season " proclaims the ad, and seeing as the TV spot is shown more frequently than Shaun Wright Phillips falls over, the message is certainly being hammered home. With the next-gen version still a few weeks away, it would be simple to assume that this season hasn't really started yet, but on current-gen systems this is most definitely the season where FIFA feels like a proper...
Excerpt: Do you know, the very first game I bought for my PC all those years ago was Fifa 97! Now, 10 years on, the series continues to go from strength to strength and this latest edition is no different.
Excerpt: The FIFA franchise has been around for a long time now, and I've always loved a good battle on the pitch. So I was more than content with the opportunity to try out the latest (and last) effort for the Xbox. EA has overall always been able to put forth a pretty valiant effort in the soccer genre.
Excerpt: FIFA 07 is a great game. It's a great game not because EA has done something revolutionary or drastic, but rather because they have taken a great game and made subtle improvements throughout, making it the best FIFA title to date. It feels, looks, and plays better than the previous titles, and that's saying a lot.
There has been no lack of FIFA titles dribbling onto the market over the past year or so.
Excerpt: Almost a year to the day since the release of FIFA 06, EA Sports has released that game's inevitable sequel, FIFA 07 for the PC, the PlayStation 2, and the Xbox. Last year's game could only be described as the best FIFA game to date; so the question, of course, is whether or not EA Canada has improved upon that game in any meaningful way.
Pros: Looks great, sounds superb, plays an enjoyable, fast-paced game of soccer, interactive leagues are a great new way to play online
Cons: Defensive players are a bit lazy, having to use the black and white buttons
Conclusion: A lot of what you see in FIFA Soccer 07 should be tips and notes for the next generation of soccer games. With the extremely long lists of teams and stadiums, along with a great deal of game modes and new gameplay mechanics, this is really an extremely solid soccer package. For anyone who has not made the transition to the next generation of consoles, FIFA Soccer 07 still makes a worthwhile purchase on the Xbox.
