This may take the spot over fifa world cup for the 360, as i have thought that was the best one so far. But thankfully this game was developed by the same team that has done the world cup series so the gameplay felt great, and looks great unlike in fifa 07 where i did not like the feel of the game. the one and only MAJOR problem i have with the game is that it doesnt seem like you can remap the buttons for controller configuration. I cant stand having L2 being the switch player button, would much rather have it be the y button which i believe was the button in the world cup game. it seems as if you can not change any of the buttons.

This game is okay the actual gameplay is just ok people say its better than Fifa and at times i agree and others i dont. For one it's harder to play defense in this game for sure but on the plus side the AI is 1000 times better sometimes they'll actually move to get the ball and they also play defense. This big deal for this game is the card system in the ultimate team mode. You actually build your team using cards and you can buy more online this is a really fun system to play trying to build your ultimate team. Definately a good game for any soccer fan especially if you watched the Champions League however, with difficult achievements and a much harder game than fifa casual fans should stick with Fifa.

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. That’s why I was only mildly surprised to have UEFA Champions League 2006-2007 show up in my mailbox barely a half a year after FIFA 07. That’s not to complain, I certainly enjoyed FIFA 07 and was more than happy to jump feet-first into a new title and kick it around a bit.

If you’re a novice to international - specifically European - football, the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) Champions League features some of the absolute elite football clubs that even soccer newbies are mildly familiar with. Clubs like Real Madrid, A.C. Milan and Manchester United all compete on this grand European stage for the chance to hoist the European Champion Clubs' Cup – considered the most prestigious by most European fans. Unfortunately, here in the states, I’m not sure that having a title specific to Champions League is nearly the selling point that it is on the other side of the pond.

Fans should love what UEFA Champions League 2006-2007 has to offer. While it seems very little has been changed to the actual gameplay since FIFA 07’s release – that’s not all bad. The game still has some of the best physics in recent sports titles, and the AI still manages to produce a significant challenge to players on any skill level. The visuals have been improved since the fall, giving the game a crisper and smoother overall look.
