UEFA Champions League 2006-2007 Xbox 360 Review
30 May 2010
Excerpt: FIFA 07 offered an outstanding game of football, and the two nines that we awarded the two very different versions were certainly well deserved. It was with little doubt that the latest Champions League game would be a repeat performance with few differences to speak of. Read on to find out why this game is still well worth a look. As the game is basically a slightly refined version of FIFA 07 then please allow us to refer you to our earlier review.
Excerpt: Judging by how many soccer games are currently available for the PlayStation 2 and PlayStation Portable, you'd think that soccer was by far the most popular sport in North America. In less than a year, EA has released a FIFA game and a World Cup game, and now there's one more to add to the list: UEFA Champions League 2006-2007.
Pros: "The treble" isn't perfect, but it's an interesting take on playing a season, Controls are responsive and intuitive, Great-looking players and stadiums
Cons: Some of the treble's objectives are pretty tough, Online play is plagued by connection issues, There's little reason to buy this if you already own FIFA
Summary: At a whopping $59.99 for the Xbox 360 version, this title seems a bit overpriced given the amount of teams and tournaments available. A solid title it definitely is, but the price should've mirrored the last-gen versions a little closer. UEFA Champions League 2006-2007 deserves to be rented at the very least, but as far as purchases go, unless you're a hardcore Champions League fan or you don't own a PS2, you may want to wait for a price drop.
Excerpt: After bringing us soccer on a global scale with its FIFA series of games, EA Sports turns its attention to just the European flavor of the sport in UEFA Champions League 2006-2007. It would have been easy for EA Sports to simply cut most of the teams out of their FIFA game, update the European rosters, and call it a day, but in UEFA you’ve got a new game that provides a different experience from FIFA.
Conclusion: soccer games like Sega Soccer Slam or Super Mario Strikers as you can get. U.E.F.A. demands more from players than just hammering on one or two buttons to score quick and easy goals. In fact, it’s actually comparable to a fighting game in respect to the layered controls and its various situational setups, like corner kicks.
Conclusion: is a fun game with realistic
and accurate play. The instructions leave a bit to be desired, but
even novice soccer players will be able to figure out the mechanics of
the game without too much time and trouble. The thing that sets this
game apart from other soccer games is the card trading element. It
is fun and addictive, and earning packs is almost more fun than winning
the matches themselves.
Excerpt: As someone who gets 99% of their exposure to soccer from either video games or the World Cup, I won’t pretend to understand the depth of the passion that soccer fans have. I think U.S. sports fans certainly have passion for their baseball and football, but I’m not sure the average fan lives and breathes their favorite club like a soccer fan does. So, even though it always strikes me as strange, I shouldn’t be too shocked about how many new titles seem to drop every year.
