Summary: This is by far the best EA has created in their FIFA series. The atmosphere, graphics, and user interface are much improved over last year's version, but there are still some areas that need improvement. First, the positives: The gameplay is pretty realistic. The defense is much harder to break down than in previous versions, which seems to keep the scoreline in check.

Summary: I've been an avid FIFA fan since it came out. In fact 99% of my gaming is spent on the most recent version of FIFA. FIFA 2006 is by far the best version yet. Game play has been touched up to give a better handle on the game. Players movements on both sides of the pitch seem to be more accurate to reality. Additionally refs handing out cards and calling hand ball seem to be more on par with the numbers you may see in a real match.
Summary: After years of sloppy gameplay and after almost beating my XBox to death over frustration of playing the FIFA 05 version. EA Fifa's is finally looking like a player's videogame. In this year's version the gameplay is WAYYYYYYYY better. You can actually control what you want your player to do. In the past years that was only a dream. The reason why I bought it this year is because I actually played it before buying it and love it.
