Very Good

A for presentation, B for gameplay

Well I received 2006 World Cup this morning and have been playing all day (just took a break a bit ago hehe) and so far have been having a good time. The presentation before, during and after the game is probably the best seen in any soccer game. EA sure does know how to showcase the sport.
But the gameplay is still not up to par with Winning 11. Every time the ball is passed or lobbed, it never fails to reach another player's foot. EA still keeps that "magnetic" ball play where the ball rarely leaves the player's body. That is the major flaw with Ea's version and why many enjoy Winning 11's version. But still, the game is so much fun and enjoyable.
For all you big soccer fans who are looking forward to this year's World Cup and can't wait any longer (like I am), make sure to play this game.

FIFA World Cup has the best graphics I have ever seen for a soccer game. The only thing I believe they lacked on was the scheduling. Otherwise it has a great story line and commentary.

I would try World Soccer Winning Eleven 9 instead.

This game has okay graphics but when compared to World Soccer Winning Eleven 9 it just doesn't compare. World Soccer also seems to have better, more responsive controls.

I like that it is up to date as far as teams go and that it has the whole World Cup tournament. It is a really great game but try out World Soccer Winning Eleven 9 and see which you like better! For me it is World Soccer.
