I was a fan of F.I.F.A. soccer games growing up in the early nineties. The pace was fast, it was unbelievably fun to manipulate the bend of the ball and shots on goal were what they should be: high. Soccer is a blast to play, but watching it can be a bore. Playing this sorry excuse for a soccer game puts me into a deep sleep. Your players first of all walk to the ball, when you slide tackle, your whole team or at least two players follow suit. Breakaways are non existent and the graphics are sub par. The audio in this game is also horrific. The computer has a great shot on goal, only for the announcer to say "Oh they have a good chance!" two minutes later. 6.5? 6.5?........if this game gets a 6.5 then I've been a straight A student my whole life. If this game is a 6.5 the Atlanta Hawks have a shot at the N.B.A. title next year. I wanted to write more in depth, but i don't like to write about garbage. DO NOT RENT THIS GAME, EVEN IF YOUR PAID TO PLAY IT.
This game is very confusing! I think that it is European so everything in it is different. The game itself is very slow moving. It had an English league that only has 2 of the actual English Premiere League teams. So I couldn't be the team i wanted and I could figure out how to play!

This game is horrible. The controls are so loose half the time it feels you're not the one that's actually playing the game. It's near impossible to direct a shot on net. Even from 6 yards out the players loft them into Row ZZ. The passing is terrible. Get ready for a lot of "Nooo! Not to THAT guy!" AI is like a bunch of special needs 5 year olds playing football. Players rarely make forward runs, instead opting to run AT you when you have the ball. Forwards routinely setup camp offside. Apparently unaware they need to stay with the last man back.
Fake team names are locked. You can't change them to the real ones yourself. terrible. Wish i could give this game a 0/10 but 1/10 was the lowest available.
