FIFA 06 Review (Xbox)

We have just posted our FIFA 06 review. Find out what Aaron Holbert has to say about it.
"An interesting happens when a video game company starts to feel some pressure. For years, the FIFA series has been an unrealistic mess that relied on the fact that it is the only franchise with licensed clubs and players. EA expected (with good reason) that many soccer fans would ignore the lack of realistic play and would be satisfied with being able to play with your favorite club. Thankfully, competition arrived in the form of Konami's Winning Eleven series. The competition has caused EA to create a more realistic soccer game to please true soccer fans. This question remains: Is FIFA 06 realistic enough to knock Winning Eleven off of the top seat?"

From the review: “An interesting happens when a video game company starts to feel some pressure. For years, the FIFA series has been an unrealistic mess that relied on the fact that it is the only franchise with licensed clubs and players. EA expected (with good reason) that many soccer fans would ignore the lack of realistic play and would be satisfied with being able to play with your favorite club.”

That's funny, because I played about 100 games and have some frame drops every game ( Xbox ). I think foul AI is pretty good. I had other fouls called, not just sliding ones. There are no subs..that's true. One more..there ARE differences between proffessional and world class difficulty settings, for example: the cpu plays quicker, plays better defensively etc.

Strange. Every website is reporting it and it happens every game, sometimes slowing to a crawl worse than any recent EA sports frame rate problem.
