I really wanted this game to be the Soccer game I was looking for. With Fifa 08 right around the corner, I picked this up and played it for the first time. I was impressed with the gameplay, and the pace of the game. The one thing that stuck out to me the most when playing, is when I pass the ball, the receiver stops in their tracks — doesn’t attempt to move towards the ball if an interception is imminent. The training is hard, not because the controls suck or anything, but the descriptions on how to do things are completely, well… missing.
Good graphics, for a later generation PS2 game. A lot was left to be expected really. The weather effects could have been done a little better. The models and textures were spot on, and fields themselves (just the grass part) were superb.
Overall, its a fun game, its one of those you would play a few hours a week, just to get a fix.
