FIFA 06, while far from perfection, was an ominous sign for Konami that EA was closing the gap in leaps and bounds. FIFA 07 is a firm announcement of EA's arrival as Konami's equal in terms of gameplay and fun, and its undisputed mastery in terms of graphics, sound, commentary, presentation, detailing, and licensing. If Pro Evolution 6 arrives as just another incremental season-by-season tweak on Konami's successful formula, then FIFA 07 will, for the first time, top the football game chart. But as things stand, FIFA 07 is the only complete football package in existence.

Pick this one up for sure if you are looking for your favorite stars battling it out in a realistic manner. The Interactive Leagues is worth the price of admission, too. You may be a little let down by the graphics, but if you can trudge through those, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at just how solid a game FIFA 07 Soccer is.

The management mode will keep you busy for quite a while, the lounge is just the thing for post-pub competitions with friends and the Xbox Live matches are smooth as silk. It's rare to see a game with so much polish pull it off in gameplay terms too, but FIFA 07 really is a fantastic piece of work.

While this latest title has the advantage of a few additional features and some nifty new nuances, the differences don't really merit a new purchase if you recently invested in EA's other excellent soccer title this year. Even so, FIFA 07's allure is hard to deny, making this game a sure-fire rental for seasoned vets and a must have for new soccer fans.

Although it's not obvious to begin with, FIFA 07 is a huge step in the right direction for the series, with nearly every new addition adding positively to the game as a whole. Although still not quite as refined or smooth as Pro Evo, FIFA 07 is certainly kicking at the heels of its great competitor. Although likely to be the last instalment of the FIFA franchise on current generation consoles, EA can be happy with the fact that they have certainly saved the best for last, while giving next-gen FIFA titles the perfect foundation with which to keep the pressure on Pro Evo and push the series towards even bigger and better things.

FIFA 07 is an excellent game. Is it completely new? No. Is it revolutionary in some way? No. But EA has taken the core FIFA game and improved it to create the best FIFA footballer to date. If you are a soccer game fan, you simply can't miss this title.

What a difference a year makes. FIFA 07 has closed the gap on PES5 more than we could possibly have imagined. Compared to previous FIFA instalments this plays a more rounded, authentic game of football without cranking up the realism so much that it’s no longer fun. The result is a game that’s as fun and as accessible as any of its predecessors, but with gameplay that’s more Premier League than the Championship.

Zugegeben, Electronic Arts hat mit FIFA 07 mal wieder einen tollen und in einigen Aspekten verbesserten Nachfolger geliefert. Aber will ich mir jedes Jahr ein neues Fußballspiel kaufen, das nur einige, wenige Verbesserungen bietet? Ich persönlich hätte kein Problem damit, auch einmal länger auf das nächste FIFA-Update zu warten, wenn ich dafür einen wirklichen Meilenstein des Genres bekäme.

FIFA 07 is undoubtedly the best soccer game available on the Xbox 360. Many of the new features are well-received and while the others will take some getting used to, this is undoubtedly a move forward for the franchise. If you didn’t pick up last year game, you have absolutely no reason to not pick up this version.

FIFA 07, then, is a game that undoubtedly improves upon FIFA 06 in a number of ways, though it also has a few quirks of its own. This is an easy game to recommend if you have any interest in soccer, especially since you can keep up to date with the latest soccer news and results via a ticker tape along the bottom of the screen anytime you're online, but it's not a giant leap forward for the FIFA series in the same way that other recent iterations have been. FIFA 07 is a must-have if you missed out on FIFA 06, and it's definitely worth a look if you own last year's game and are ready for a change.

The PS3, Wii and Xbox 360 are all on the market The next-generation is here. So is the next-generation of FIFA Soccer. Even though this is their third attempt now on the Xbox 360, EA Canada stepped it up a level with FIFA Soccer 07. They have room to improve with the implementation of a better experience system, and possibly a “create-a-team” type mode where you can take a team and its manager from high school to collegiate and beyond, but those are all wants that can be fulfilled sometime later. What we have right now is a very solid experience that is going to keep you coming back for more. It may even get people interested that would not have given the sport a second thought.

Mit FIFA 07 für die Xbox 360 zeigt EA Sports wohin der Weg der Serie in Zukunft führt. Die Realismusschwäche wurde zu großen Teilen ausgemerzt, während man bei der Präsentation weiterhin zugelegt hat. Die Luft für Konami scheint zunehmend dünn zu werden, vor allem wenn man dort die Lizenz- und Präsentationsprobleme nicht in den Griff bekommt. Schade nur, dass Xbox 360 Spieler auf die vielen, teils individuellen Tricks der anderen FIFA 07 Versionen verzichten müssen. Trotzdem, mit FIFA 07 bekommt ihr ein sehr gutes Fußballspiel geboten, das sich im Gegensatz zur Konkurrenz derzeit auch online problemlos spielen lässt. Bleibt nur zu hoffen, dass EA die Tricks vielleicht doch noch per Patch nachliefert!

FIFA 07 heeft zonder twijfel de nodige verbeteringen ondergaan ten opzichte van FIFA 06, maar kent natuurlijk ook nog enkele tekortkomingen. Als je op zoek bent naar een goed voetbalgame, dan hoef je echter niet verder te zoeken. Ben je ook nog eens een voetballiefhebber, dan zal je zeker gecharmeerd zijn door de nieuwe online features. Kortom: een must-have voor degenen die FIFA 06 gemist hebben.

Trotz diverser Mankos (zum Beispiel weniger Ligen) konnte uns das Spiel überzeugen, sodass Fans des runden Leders ohne Bedenken zugreifen können.

For my first extended time playing anything on the PSP, this game was very impressive. There were a handful of drawbacks – most notably the lack of some teams and absence of a team or player creation mode – but overall this is great fun. I have a stack of other games but this is the one that keeps ending up in my PSP.

FIFA 07 is a fun, fast-paced game of soccer and EA's finest effort to date. While the effort to imitate the best elements of Winning Eleven is obvious, EA does its own fair share of innovation with some great long-pall passing, jostling and the Interactive Leagues feature. With solid visuals and sound, a dearth of game modes and decent online play, FIFA 07 is one of the best sports games of the year.

The final verdict on FIFA '07 is a good one. The game of soccer has never been so complete, with so many teams, leagues, cups, options, modes, and everything else that you can possibly imagine. There are some minor issues with the gameplay, mainly involving the goalkeeping, and the graphics, with the dated models and stuttering widescreen framerate. If you love soccer, or just love playing a good sports game, FIFA '07 certainly has a lot to offer. If you like playing against other people or by yourself, whether in single games or lengthy tournaments, managing the team or controlling it directly, FIFA offers it. There is no reason that FIFA '07 cannot receive a recommendation for fans of the sport everywhere.

So, what are my conclusions after playing FIFA 07? Well, for starters FIFA 07 is a definite improvement over FIFA 06. This may seem logical for many, but fans of the series know that newer wasn't always better for FIFA in the previous years. Also I must say that this year PES surely has a more serious competitor, even though its supremacy will probably remain unchallenged for another year at least.

I feel like I have written FIFA reviews a hundred million times in the past year. This is actually my fourth since the PSP came out in March 2005. Steadily the franchise has improved each iteration that comes out...which seems to be about every six months. That it keeps getting better is a good thing, because I wasn't too thrilled about the first PSP FIFA. It's now up to the level of a console soccer game, with short load times and deep, long-lasting gameplay. I may be tired of writing about soccer, but I'm sure not sick of playing it. As Game Freaks 365's 1,000th game reviewed, I proudly encourage you to pick up a copy of FIFA Soccer 07.

This FIFA is less arcade than before but does remain faithful to the fans and remains accessible enough for newcomers. EA have listened and (finally) succeeded to put down soccer realistically. The game still has less depth than its biggest competitor but FIFA 07 makes up a lot in other ways. All in all I don't think many PES fanboys will switch sides but maybe they should give it a chance.

Almost a year to the day since the release of FIFA 06, EA Sports has released that game's inevitable sequel, FIFA 07 for the GameCube. Last year's game could only be described as the best FIFA game to date; so the question, of course, is whether or not EA Canada has improved upon that game in any meaningful way. Not all of the changes that have been implemented since last year's game have been for the better, but there are more than enough improvements here to make FIFA 07 worth a look.

Im Gegensatz zur neu entwickelten 360-Fassung merkt man Fifa 07 auf den Current-Gen-Konsolen und dem PC seine Herkunft an: Hier bekommen wir erneut eines der jährlichen Updates, das zwar in einigen Belangen verbessert und um schöne Modi wie die Interaktive Liga erweitert wurde, aber im Kern immer noch das „alte“ Fifa ist. Trotz eines weiteren Feintunings in Richtung Realismus fühlt sich der Spielablauf mit seinen Granatenschüssen und konstant flotten Spielern noch nicht so rund an. Vor allem hätte man die KI-Fußballer aggressiver und den Torwart flexibler gestalten müssen. Trotzdem ist EA auf dem richtigen Weg und liefert mit Fifa 07 ein gutes, wenn auch nicht überragendes Fußballspiel für die aktuelle Konsolengeneration und den PC ab. An ein PES reicht es trotzdem noch nicht heran, aber dies könnte sich mit der 360-Fassung ändern, die beim ersten Anspielen bereits einen starken Eindruck hinterlassen hat.

Overall FIFA 07 on the Xbox 360 is a good, but not brilliant game. It's a vast improvement over last year's FIFA 06 and plays slightly better than 2006 FIFA World Cup. While gameplay wise it's still not quite up there with Pro Evo 6 it comes closer than ever before this time around. Sadly a few things let this version down dramatically, such as the severely reduced number of teams, uninspiring sound and a general corner cutting approach that has been made to get this game to market. It is a shame considering this is the third FIFA game on Xbox 360. It's about time EA take advantage of the superior next gen hardware and produce a game that stands head and shoulders above current gen versions. Sadly, this clearly is not the case here. Anyone looking to purchase a new footie game this season on the Xbox 360 would be better off looking at Pro Evolution Soccer 6. FIFA fans should look towards the current generation version for a better value and more complete package.

While it's not the giant leap forward for the FIFA series that you might have been hoping for, the Xbox 360 version of FIFA 07 certainly isn't a difficult game to recommend.

Although it does away with some stuff that you might normally take for granted, the end product doesn't disappoint.

Der Weg ist das Ziel. Bisher stand Electronic Arts in Sachen Fußball auf der Stelle, drehte sich mit als neu verkauften, aber halbgar wirkenden Features im Kreis, ohne sich qualitativ nach vorne zu bewegen. Mit FIFA 07 hat das Team um Hugues Ricours den ersten wichtigen Schritt zu einem besseren Spielerlebnis gemacht: Die neue Physik sorgt für unberechenbarere Situationen, der Ball klebt nicht mehr wie ein Magnet am Fuß und man erkennt das Potenzial des Kicks. Der kommt zwar in Sachen Schusstechnik, KI und Animationsvielfalt noch nicht an die Klasse von PES6 ran, aber all das ist genau so lobenswert wie der technisch saubere Online-Modus, der euch wesentlich mehr Komfort bietet als das Sparpaket, das Konami auf Xbox Live abliefert. Allerdings hat FIFA 07 ein anderes Problem: die Atmosphäre. Konnte EA bisher immer mit voller Lizenz und klasse Kulisse punkten, enttäuscht das Drumherum diesmal.

In the end, FIFA Soccer 07 is a sizeable leap forward for the series.

For all those that ever wore their favorite team's scarf or shirt, FIFA 07 is a blessing thanks to the Interactive Leagues option. There are steps you take while being the fan of the team: first there's watching them on the TV, then there's going to the stadium and there's the last phase: leading your idols to success. You won't be able to do that unless you try EA Sport's latest football sim, a decent piece of work with fast-paced football, neat graphics and a multiplayer mode designed for the true football aficionados.

Von daher verteile ich mit leichtem Bauchgrummeln eine 8. Wer sich jetzt fragt, wieso die Xbox 360-Fassungen von FIFA 07 und PES 6 die gleiche Wertung teilen: Es handelt sich zwar in beiden Fällen um ein Fußballspiel, die Schwerpunkte sind aber anders gelegt. PES 6 spricht wie immer primär Spieler an, die eine authentische Simulation des Sports wollen. Die bekommen sie auch, müssen aber mit lizenztechnischen Einschränkungen und einer vergleichsweise faden Optik leben. Ferner erfordert der große Konkurrent von Konami die Bereitschaft, viel Zeit in die Einarbeitung zu investieren. FIFA 07 ist in dieser Hinsicht humaner, verfügt mit der Bundesliga-Lizenz über eine Trumpfkarte, ist optisch trotz einer gewissen Sterilität deutlich mehr Next Gen und hat somit andere Reize. Im Kampf um die Tabellenspitze gibt es daher keinen klaren Punktsieger. Je nach persönlichen Vorlieben sind beide Spiele eine gute Wahl.

If you're only bothered about gameplay and not about looks or playing as your favourite team then go and buy Pro Evolution Soccer 4 (which is easily the best in the series). If you like football games and you want to be impressed by something that plays fantastically well and looks next generation, then this is without doubt a fine purchase and a big step in the right direction for the FIFA series. However, if you can hang on until FIFA 08 I think there will be even greater leaps in both visuals and gameplay; that will hopefully have less plasticky looking players, a smart referee, perfect passing and a full complement of teams. Of course, by that time EA might have missed their opportunity to convert everyone, as Konami could have pulled their socks up and sorted out their own issues by then, but only time will tell... they think it's all over - it isn't yet!

FIFA 07's technological superiority will definitely go a long way to providing the wow factor that's needed to tempt the next gen punters, and its initial fast, exciting accessibility both off and online is something many of us have been crying out for. But as much as we wanted to hail EA's proactive progressive approach to FIFA as the great slayer of Konami's complacency, the fact remains that PES6 is marginally the better game in ways that matter.

Further bonus features such as updated real-world results, courtesy of ESPN, are all very good, but it all adds up to padding and very little else. That said, it is quite a bit of padding, with gamers able to check out the latest news on each of the clubs featured in FIFA 07, and weekly podcasts will also bridge the gap between EA's representation of the beautiful game and the actual version of the beautiful game. At the end of the day (to use something of an hackneyed footballing cliché), a real football fan is unlikely to rely on FIFA 07 to get the latest goings on at their supported club, making much of this feature fairly inconsequential.

If you are up for the challenge of realistic momentum, physics, and a gameplay style that rewards patience and strategy, then get the 360 version.

FIFA 07 is simply the finest iteration of the franchise ever created. Not only does it look great, sound great and have an atmosphere unlike any football game ever created, but it doesn’t play half bad either. Gameplay has always been the stumbling block of the FIFA franchise. Every version sees something else focused on, be it long balls, first touch, running off the ball, shooting, ball physics or something totally irrelevant and tedious that nobody cares about like custom crowd chanting. However, this year it would seem that EA have splashed the development talent and gone all out to create a football game that is finally worthy of the most beautiful of all games.

So, time for the big question. Is FIFA 07 the new king of football? To put it bluntly, no - but it's damn close. It's something I've thought long and hard about, but when the question is asked, PES still reigns supreme. FIFA 07 most definitely beats PES in a few areas, most notably in presentation and the brilliant first-touch control, but it's still not PES. While PES ambles along though, FIFA is making huge strides, so while in the end this might not be "the season," Pro Evolution Soccer's fall from the top might not be too far away. Still, FIFA 07 is a great game in its own right, and the best alternative players have had to PES in years.

Det är glädjande att se hur EA Sports har tagit tjuren vid hornen när de utvecklat FIFA 07. De har verkligen tagit en hel del okarakteristiska risker som tack och lov lönar sig. Den nya fysiken imponerar och för första gången kan det mäta sig med den känsla av realism som Pro Evolution Soccer varit ensamma om i så många år. Som fotbollsentusiast kan jag bara applådera och tacka EA Sports för att de äntligen har försökt att komma med något nytt. Kanske når de inte hela vägen den här gången men de har åtminstone tagit ett antal rejäla kliv framåt på en ny bana som kan leda dem långt i framtiden.

Meine erste Reaktion auf FIFA 07 war: "Hey, der Spielverlauf ist jetzt um einiges flüssiger und spaßiger! Die zweite hingegen: "Steht dieser minderbemittelte Torwart noch mal neben dem Tor statt drin, hämmere ich mit meiner Stirn gegen den Monitor!" FIFA 07 hätte zum besten FIFA der letzten Jahre aufsteigen können, doch bei der KI hakt es vorn und hinten.

Serious football fans are still better off sticking with Konami's Pro Evolution Soccer (Winning Eleven stateside). WE offers much more versatility gameplay-wise and it's just a better attempt at a simulation overall. FIFA 07 might impress at first, but if you stick with it, you'll realize some fundamental things about the game of football are still eluding the developers in their efforts to make a good game.

Fifa 07 macht mir Spaß - hin und wieder, wenn es ein schnelles Spiel zwischendurch sein soll. Da will ich nicht viel taktieren müssen. Ich will einfach auf den Platz und Tore schießen. Für durchgespielte Nachmittage ist mir aber auch der neuste Teil der Reihe zu seicht. Gerade im Managermodus würde ich gerne mehr Einfluss auf mein Team nehmen können, und nicht nur auf die Vereinskasse. Auch die vielen Abstaubertore sorgen bei mir für Enttäuschung. Ständig kassiere oder lande ich Treffer, an denen ich kaum beteiligt bin. Das frustriert, und ich könnte eigentlich ebenso gut die Sportschau gucken. Unterm Strich bleibt Fifa 07 aber trotzdem ein sehr ordentliches Fußballspiel. Vor allem für alle, die sich von Pro Evolution Soccer erschlagen fühlen.

There aren't many options for those wanting a footie fix. Heck, there aren't many options for new GameCube games. It's hard to take, but this is one of the last releases on our poor, indigo-stricken Cube. It's a decent game for a system’s twilight, but not terribly unique. In the holiday rush, FIFA 07 will undoubtedly be lost in the nextgen fervor. Those sticking with their GC this season should be thankful though: it's this or another SpongeBob game. Of course, there's that Zelda thing, too.

For those who want English leagues and a manager mode, the game is satisfying, but feels like more is needed. The lack of options both offline and online stick out like a sore thumb and as an avid FIFA fan I so wanted to worship FIFA 07, but it wasn’t to be… yet anyway, however there is light at the end of the tunnel as the foundations for a superb football game are there and now I wait with excitement for FIFA 08.

Overall, FIFA 07 can be enjoyable enough, but you’ll probably find that you simply expected more out of the game. The advanced graphics and physics are great, but why should you have to deal with control issues, fewer teams, and fewer modes of play that current gen gamers all get for $10 less. If you’re a soccer fan and you only have an Xbox 360 available then give FIFA 07 a try for yourself. If you have an older system in your home as well, you may want to seriously consider sticking with the current generation for another year.

In the end FIFA 2007 did draw me – a non-soccer fan – into the game of soccer. In so much as I can tell, the game of soccer is largely one of strategy and playing FIFA gave me a sense of what people love so much about the game. Maybe there’s not a lot of scoring, but that’s what makes it so exciting when something does happen. All in all, I found myself jumping for joy after a hard fought goal more often than I found myself wanting to headbutt my 360 out of frustration like Zinedine Zidane. It was a lot like being in the bar that Sunday, all that was missing was the beer. Oh yeah, and the redhead.

EA took a big chance this year and while it may not have paid off in full it is easily the best step in the right direction that I have seen for soccer videogame’s in general. That being said if you are a fan of the series you should defiantly give FIFA 07 a shot, it may disappoint you in some areas but it will please you in plenty of others.

Yet all the looks in the world are superfluous if EA can’t fix some of FIFA 07’s nagging issues – at the end of the day, it’s simply outclassed by current-generation versions of the same game. Though it’s anybody’s guess as to why, the truth of the matter must be told. FIFA 07 represents the best soccer you can play on the Xbox 360, but falls short of the bar set by Konami and, ironically enough, EA itself.

Xbox 360Game Informer Magazine
Add in the fact that this game features a paltry six international leagues (as opposed to the over 20 of some past FIFAs), the double-team defensive feature still doesn’t work, players’ collision fields are too large, the AI shows very little movement in the box on your corner kicks, and that shots and passes have little accuracy, and you’ll find that this game has taken steps back which counter its promising progress – not unlike the American national squad. We hope this is a way forward for the FIFA franchise, but you never know, next year they might just ditch everything and start from scratch – again.

Dieses Jahr spielt FIFA 07 auf dem PC noch nicht mal auf Zweitliganiveau. Allein die unglaublichen schlechten Torhüter sowie der überflüssige und nicht abschaltbare Bloom-Effekt bei den Replays dirigieren das Spiel Richtung Abstiegsplatz. Punkten kann FIFA 07 bei der sichtbar verbesserten Ballphysik, die sich der von PES langsam aber sicher annähert, und natürlich bei den vielen Lizenzen. Auf dem PC kassiert das neue FIFA von mir dennoch die rote Karte, schon die Demo der Xbox360-Version zeigt eine um Welten bessere Technik und auch ein im Ansatz realistischeres Gameplay. PC-Spieler werden dagegen nur mit einem nicht funktionierenden Grafikeffekt vertröstet. Mein Tipp: auf Pro Evolution Soccer 6 warten und von FIFA 07 nur die Xbox360-Version für Mehrspielerduelle in Erwägung ziehen.

Xbox 360Worth Playing
It's hard to rate an offering like FIFA 2007. Every aspect that "works" has a few that just don't, to the game's overall detriment. The lack of clubs is probably the most disheartening, especially with the knowledge that EA is not above charging for the additional teams. The broken passing game and shooting hurt tremendously as well, but there is a lot of fun to be had against another human opponent, which helps to make up for some of the single-player issues. The manager mode is interesting, and there are just enough positives and not enough other options on the X360 soccer scene, so FIFA '07 is still recommended for most people. If you are not a huge fan, it's probably best to just stick with the current-gen versions for now, but I imagine that next year's offering has the potential to really stand out and attain the promise that so many people saw in this franchise.

On a souvent tendance à reprocher à Electronic Arts ne pas être attentif aux critiques émises par les joueurs. Cette année, l’éditeur a pris connaissance et conscience des défauts des précédents opus et a enfin corrigé le tir. Avec son gameplay beaucoup plus dynamique sans tomber dans le ridicule de l’Arcade non plus, son I.A. améliorée, son contenu toujours aussi alléchant et son mode "Ligues Interactives" qui séduira plus d’un supporter, FIFA 07 surprend à tel point que l’on pourrait craindre le pire pour la série Pro Evolution Soccer et plus particulièrement PES 6. Cependant, quelques défauts font de la résistance dans cette nouvelle édition empêchant le titre d’Electronic Arts de s’épanouir.

We would have liked for this year's 360 FIFA 07 to combine all the best parts of its current-gen cousins and its older World Cup brother; rather, we got a good, not great, title that in several ways is outshined by those same games. Sure, we're a little spoiled, but for $60 we shouldn't have to trade gameplay for the admittedly spruced-up graphics.

Wow, dużo tych wad. Podsumuję: mecz zrobił się przyjemny, choć ze względu na sprawy taktyczne i małą ruchliwość zawodników jest oparty na indywidualnych popisach, a w długiej perspektywie powtarzalny. Po wyjściu na boisko jest lepiej niż było, w grze z innymi ludźmi jest dużo potencjału. Ale tryb kariery jest niedorobiony jak polski Stadion Narodowy, taktyka grzeje ławę od juniora, a nielogiczny rozwój zawodników premiuje wystawianie cały sezon żelaznej jedenastki. Trzeci rok z rzędu ktoś zrobił z siebie Listkiewicza, a ja jestem tutaj jego prokuratorem.

The bottom line of course is how it compares to other football games on the console. We haven’t played Pro Evolution Soccer 6 on the Xbox 360 and I would easily recommend FIFA 07 over FIFA 06 Road to FIFA World Cup. It looks a whole lot better than 2006 FIFA World Cup but it would be difficult to argue that it plays better. In terms of its deaf gamer friendliness it’s the usual form for a sports game with the match commentary being unsubtitled but everything else being absolutely fine. Personally I would rather have the PC or PlayStation 2 version of FIFA 07 as those versions simply play a better game. FIFA 07 on the Xbox 360 shows promise and FIFA 08 could be an absolute cracker if all the areas that are in need of improvement are actually improved. For now though, it still feels a lesser version when compared to the other versions of FIFA 07 that have been released this year.

Les équipes d'Electronic Arts ont les moyens financiers mais ont-ils la motivation et la connaissance nécessaires pour faire de cette série une référence du genre sur PC ? Peut-être pas. En tout cas, cette année plus que jamais, FIFA reste fidèle à lui-même, dans les bons comme dans les mauvais côtés. Les fans aimeront mais devront tout de même réfléchir avant d'investir dans un opus trop similaire à son aîné, surtout si l'on se contente d'un usage solo. Cette version PC est tout de même davantage à conseiller grâce à sa réalisation graphique.

FIFA 07 may seem like a poor game in our eyes going off what was said above but its not. It’s just a massive disappointment that EA has decided not to update the PC title to the Xbox 360 engine, leaving that until next year at the earliest. If you simply can’t wait for 360 or don’t own one then the PC version will do, but for those who have the 360, wait, because it will be worth it.

To paraphrase FIFA 07's inescapable advertising campaign, this is the season that the series' previously unjustified bluster and bravado finally has some foundation. It's by no means perfect, but 07 is a fine football game that deserves to be investigated by those who choose to automatically write EA Sports off every October.

As a long time fan of the FIFA games I am sorely disappointed in this year's release. It's not a total write off, and there is still fun to be had here, especially in the Manager Mode, but it's not as fun as past FIFA games and disappointing that EA could get so many of the basics wrong when they promised so much.

Xbox 360IGN
The potential is there, but a host of gameplay problems and lack of teams make FIFA 07 feel like an unfinished product. It's strange, because it's the third EA soccer title on the 360. EA does do a great job with ball physics and especially player momentum. Passing and shooting are nowhere near as tight as Winning Eleven or even current-gen FIFA. Visually, it's the best looking soccer game on the market. The commentary is in need of some emotion and intensity. In the end, FIFA 07 is a passable soccer game, equal parts soccer glory and frustrating gameplay issues.

Tout en faisant un léger effort sur le gameplay grâce à une meilleure variété, FIFA 07 ne révolutionnera pas la série. Toujours accessible, simple d'utilisation et techniquement très réussi, le jeu faute sur de nombreux détails de jouabilité et au niveau de sa durée de vie, un peu juste sur ce support. Toutefois, il conviendra aux habitués du genre et saura peut-être séduire certains joueurs déçus par PES 6.

Vous connaissez donc le verdict. Le jeu exploite correctement la Xbox, mais le reste convainc un peu moins, avec un jeu qui oscille entre le bon et le moins bon, comme à son habitude. On se donne donc rendez-vous l’année prochaine avec, on l’espère, un Fifa digne de son rival. En attendant, je retourne jouer à PES6.

Encore une fois, il faut vraiment être fan de la série pour investir dans un FIFA sur PSP. Ce sont étrangement les mini-jeux qui font meilleure impression et qui font la particularité de cet opus, pas mieux ni moins bien loti que les autres versions. Divertissant mais pas indispensable.

Le titre d'Electronic Arts marque enfin l’arrivée d’un vrai FIFA sur une console de nouvelle génération. Malheureusement, il n’est pas à la hauteur de nos espérances. Ce FIFA 07 a au moins le mérite de poser de nombreuses bases pour les années à venir, reste plus qu’à espérer que les prochains épisodes amenés à sortir sur Playstation 3 et Xbox 360 ne seront pas des moitiés de jeu, surtout à 70 euros.

After being pleasantly surprised by FIFA 07 on current-gen systems I was hugely disappointed with EA's next-gen offering. The game suffers from far too many core gameplay problems for it to be a worthy contender to PES 6, and it's only really the online play that is worth investing any time in. You can have a decent few hours playing online or perhaps with friends that don't know any better, but EA needs to change things considerably next year.

Every year FIFA promises revolutionary gameplay and ends up delivering the best soundtrack in sports games. This year it at least manages both -- a killer soundtrack and reworked and rebuilt gameplay. That makes it well worth a kick around. It's solid, but its subtle gameplay stutters make us hesitate to recommend it too strongly -- and all the more impatient for Winning Eleven's next iteration.

It’s this that makes the problems FIFA has all the more frustrating – they were so close to competing this year – but one thing stands out above all. This is the best FIFA game since the series went into three dimensions and it is improving with every incarnation, so even though it's the only option for 'real' football on the 'cube, at least it isn't a total stinker. It’s just so damn hard to like a good football game that is this full of flaws!

I had a hard time coming up with a recommendation for this game. I don't really feel qualified to tell hardcore sports fans how this game is. I know I wouldn't want someone who's never watched a movie before to tell me what they think of my favorite films. Considering the wealth of options in this game, I can only assume a soccer fanatic would love it to death, even with its gameplay problems. In the end, however, I have to go with my personal and wholly subjective experience with the game, and I didn't like it one bit. I guess I'll just never understand sports. Rent It.

So, should you buy FIFA for the 360? If you've read the whole review, you should have made your mind up by now. Fifty quid is a lot of money to spend on a title that doesn't offer either a realistic feeling football title, or even an arcade one. FIFA prefers to sit uncomfortably between the two, occupying an area that most would rather not visit. If you're quite happy to shell out for the fully licensed teams that EA provide every year, feel free. We tried to warn you. All we'll say is this: Konami can sleep easy for another year.
