Just plain fun

I'm not a big fan of soccer, but I'm a big fan of sports. I heard good things about this game so I thought I'd give it a try. All I have to say is, I love this game. Granted, once I've played through the entire process of trying to get the USA to the World Cup and then trying my best to win it (yeah right) I will probably send it back. But until then, I'm having a great time.

Nice graphics, great gameplay, realistic difficulty, and exciting. Scoring a goal in the game feels just like it should...AWESOME! Love the stadiums, love the atmosphere, love the game.

Even though it has little replay value once you've been through the process of trying the win the cup a few times, it's still a great game. Does what it's supposed to do, nothing more, nothing less.

Fans of the World Cup should DEFINITELY check this out. Non-sports fans should probably stear clear. But if you love sports, check this one out!

After make so many soccer games, it looks like EA is finally getting it right.

This game is getting closer and closer to the quality titles like Pro Evolution, and that's a great thing. The controls are very tight and easy to use.

The graphics are great, especially the "pitch" or field for Americans. The AI is top notch making the very challenging. The sound is great though the announcers are very repetitive and its not very fresh from the older versions.

I you are a sports game fan, not even a soccer fan, you will enjoy this game. It really makes great for on line mulitplayer as well. Take on players from all over the world.

This is my favorite soccer game, and I own the winning eleven and fifa games. It's not number 1 in realism, but it's number one in gameplay. For me, that matters more. The graphics still hold up today and it has great online play. Also, over 120 national teams. So if you're country wasn't in the other fifa or winning eleven games. it's in this one. At only 14 dollars, this game is a steal, and no, its not outdated, its funner than fifa and WE 08.
