EA has had a long period of criticism and bad press publications with the FIFA Football series. EA has been struggling for years with Konami’s Pro Evolution Soccer series (Of Winning Eleven). It’s obvious that EA wants changes, and in 2003 it first started to look like something when EA released FIFA Football 2003 for almost all platforms. The 2003, 2004 and 2005 versions of EA’s showpiece also received some criticism, but after that you can finally call the 2006 version a decent game with a lot of challenge. For those who don’t understand what I’m talking about, I’ll give a short explanation. EA has been competing for the title of best football game developer since 1995, and is actually the only one who can call itself the father of football games. EA has owned all the rights since the dawn of time, giving them the opportunity to sell the expensive names of Ronaldo and Zidane cheaply to the public. Well, cheap? No, because in the beginning you paid such 130 guilders to get a FIFA game and later it became such 65 euros, which comes down to 143 guilders. Essentially everything has become more expensive, including the FIFA Football games. We are now already at the 2007 version, so I won’t bore you with things you’ve already heard and only cover the most important features (Given that almost everyone has watched the series once, it makes little sense make the introduction to this preview even longer than is strictly necessary).

Always nice when the audience is behind you or not? I think so too, which is why EA has improved the emotions of the audience and the people along the side, among other things. The audience will respond to your performance in the field in real life. When you have possession of the ball or score a few goals, you will hear the club songs blaring through the stadium. If you’re not performing too well, you’ll only hear buzz and weird noises from the stands. So you should not be surprised if you hear some less friendly statements from the stands. And even players who struggle to control their emotions can’t escape the camera’s view. You can safely call this a small boost, but what about the competitions? Throughout the season you will have to fight against rival teams from the FA Premier League, Bundesliga, French League and even the Mexican 1st Division. In addition, all competitions from previous parts of FIFA Football are also included, but keep in mind that some countries will not be present. Certainly the number of countries that failed to qualify for the last World Cup in Germany…
