FIFA Soccer 06: Road to FIFA World Cup Review
9 February 2008
Conclusion: Electronic Arts is surely on the right track by working on core gameplay in these early games, but FIFA 06: Road to FIFA World Cup is yet another example of a launch title lacking the necessary amount of oomph.
Excerpt: FIFA 06 Road to FIFA World Cup, an introduction. When a new console is released it's often the case that you're waiting a few months for your favourite games to appear. This is especially true if you like sports games.
Summary: At the end of the day there are just cheaper, better playing soccer titles than FIFA. Such as Konami’s Pro Evolution Soccer offerings, or better yet FIFA 06 on Xbox. The game plays fine I suppose, but there just could be a lot more put into it, and shoul definitely be passed up until Electronic Arts...
Pros: Visuals a bit improved, but still have strange effects to them.
Cons: A lot of the game taken out, not challenging enough at times.
Excerpt: A new season of Premiership football has begun, and with the fully monied-up Abramovich and his almost all-conquering Chelski team doing their best to break our beloved national league, there’s every chance you’ll be looking for some digital escapism.
Summary: Great graphics? Check. Missing features? Check. Higher pricetag? Check. Yep, this is an EA Sports Xbox 360 launch title. Perhaps it is the in me, but I really don’t understand EA’s reasoning with their Xbox 360 launch titles.
Excerpt: EA Sports' FIFA franchise is often the only thing going in the US, and that's not necessarily a good thing. Matt James took a close look at FIFA 06: Road to FIFA World Cup, the Xbox 360 launch incarnation of the FIFA series, and found that it's probably not worth the upgrade.
Pros: ups: Playable loading screen is a great addition
Cons: downs: A disconnected experience never really gets you into the game
