Excerpt: We all know the history of the EA Sports franchises, don’t we’ Once amazing 16-bit titles were then upgraded and released on every format known to man once the 32-bit days began, followed by the yearly releases and special editions which continued to be developed with varying success.
Excerpt: In today’s console soccer world, there are two contenders, the "Winning Eleven" series and the "FIFA" series. The first has been the better simulation of the sport than the latter. I was eager to tear into this year’s version - which lauded its new “First Touch” feature. "FIFA Soccer 2005" is the best version of the series to date, but in many ways, that's like being the valedictorian of summer school.
Conclusion: EA Sports has been getting better and better at creating great sports graphics for there games. Although many of their games aren’t the most beautiful looking games in the world, they still manage to create that solid feel around them. So does FIFA Soccer 2005 continue the EA Sports tradition? Not only have the graphics of FIFA Soccer 2005 been improved from last year’s version but also FIFA Soccer 2005 may be the best looking game EA Sports has given us this year.
Excerpt: In the world of soccer games there are really only two serious contenders for the championship title at this point: Konami's Winning Eleven games (Pro Evolution Soccer in Europe), and EA Sports' FIFA Soccer series. Like rival soccer teams eager to show off their newly acquired players at the start of a new season, these two series show up with a host of new features every 12 months in the hope that they'll finally score a convincing victory over the other.
Conclusion: And that's what really sums it up for me about FIFA 2005 – it's not a deep game, and certainly not one that I'd play for hours on end. It's definitely more of a 'kick about' than a full training session. But it can be a lot of fun for half an hour at a time, and so I'd be happy to recommend it if you want to pick up and play a game of football occasionally without being too bothered about anything other than what the twenty-two men on the pitch are up to.
Conclusion: By far the best Fifa to date and just when they needed it. Online is pure fun with friends, but offline this title has a new surprise up its sleeve and this is the Career mode which has surprised me completely. If you love Fifa you can not go wrong with this latest release.
Excerpt: "FIFA 2005 on Xbox Live moninpelillä, sekä muutamalla muulla pienemmällä uudistuksella varustettua perusfifaa. Hitusen edeltäjäänsä parempi palloilukokemus, joskin oikeita uudistuksia on tuttuun tapaan liian vähän.
Excerpt: Skulle der stadigvæk være nogen, der ikke har hørt om Saints Rowspillet, så er det et såkaldt ”sandkasse”-spil, hvor man bevæger sig rundt i 3. person og skal gennemføre en række missioner, stjæle biler og forsøge at udrydde rivaliserende bander. Genren, som spillet befinder sig i, er den samme som eksempelvis Grand Theft Auto – dog er det vigtigt at understrege, at Saints Row absolut ikke blot er en billig kopi af førnævnte konkurrerende titel.
