Conclusion: Such a disapointment. Having played the Xbox version of this game I was very excited by a next-gen incarnation. This was way off the mark. The graphics, a good attempt at improvement, but aside from that, this game left me wanting. Only 6 leagues, a drastic reduction from the last-gen game, all tackles seemed to be punished with a free kick, the controls were poor, especially the "first touch" which was a subtle as a sledgehammer.
Conclusion: CCCCCCCCRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAPPPPPPPPPPPP Pro Evo all the way. And have you ever noticed how all FIFA fans can say about why they think FIFA is better is "but they have the real names" so what, the games crap
Summary: I have played EA-FIFA since 1995. Always liked it more or less, but this version is an absolute waste of money. Why? For me, the biggest dissapointment is the fact that there are on 6 leagues available. Where is the rest of Europe? Where are 2nd and 3rd divisions? But I also agree with all the other issues mentioned in the other review.
Summary: This game is missing too many clubs from too many leagues. The Playstation 2 version of the same game had a lot more leagues and teams. Had I known, I would have waited until the 2008 version. The 2006 version in the old xbox had more teams...
Summary: Its seems in this day and age of video games, that the actual gameplay and options would increase. Well that is not the case. Gameplay is difficult and the game only has 5 leagues. What a waste of money.
Game is ok, gameplay is awful and XBL is full of cheaters!

Summary: As with the other reviewers: RENT BEFORE YOU BUY THIS!!! The graphics in this game are great, the game play is however awful on the xbox 360. I have more fun playing FIFA 06 on the PSP than playing this on the xbox 360. The poor game play has resulted in lots of cheaters on XBL, which is a pity because the on-line play is great, if it wasn't for the cheating.
Summary: This game is terrible. I rarely write comments on amazon but I just hope before you spend 60 dollars on this game (50 on amazon)please re-consider. You are much better off finding one of the many pre-played games being sold by people who have had the same experience as me. My fellow reviewers at amazon have done an excellent job of explaining why not to buy this game so I will not go into details.
Summary: I am big fan of EA soccer game. I am playing many EA Fifa games on both PC and the console version. I was very excited when this game came out. After buying it and trying it out for 3 hours, I was so dissappointed and had to trade the game in (got less than 1/2 of the price I paid for). Basically, the game has very little leagues you could pick and choose. I don't have to say more about this weakness because you would spot the same complaint from the other reviewers.
