If you're looking for an action-packed title for your N-Gage, you need look no further than FIFA 2005 - even if you're not a fan of football or sports games. You can go on for a quick match, challenge a medium match with friendly mode, or have a longer session with the deeper career mode and that's not to mention the competition mode, the unlockables and the multiplayer! In addition to all this, you can connect to N-Gage arena to upload instant replays and scores, although there is no multiplayer online option. If you enjoy rewarding gameplay, FIFA 2005 delivers like few others.

FIFA Soccer 2005 has a competent, thoroughly enjoyable game on the consoles and on the GBA. While the N-Gage version doesn't deviate far from the GBA's formula, the graphics are cleaner, and the Bluetooth and N-Gage Arena support are welcome additions.
Soccer fans, prepare yourself for a great EA Sports experience on the N-Gage. FIFA 2005 Soccer is addictive, solid in control, and designed perfectly for the mobile experience.
Released for the N-Gage in January of this year, FIFA Soccer 2004 is arguably the best sports game to grace the platform to date. Now, just 10 months later, EA Sports has released its inevitable 2005 sequel which, we're pleased to report, does a lot more than just update the team rosters and uniforms. FIFA Soccer 2005 for the N-Gage has a lot more in common with its PC and console counterparts than you might expect, and it plays to the strengths of Nokia's handheld with both Bluetooth and N-Gage Arena support.

Sur une autre console, ce Fifa 2005 aurait mérité une note moins bonne. Mais sur N-Gage faute de concurrence...

It's often said that the best football players make the game look simple. If the same principle can be applied to football games, then the N-Gage's FIFA 2005 is a veritable Pele. Whereas most modern simulations of the sport (and indeed most other versions of FIFA) seem to want to make the game ever more complicated, with stunningly life-like animations and fussy gimmicks, FIFA 2005 sets out to do the simple things well and it's all the better for it, delivering arguably the most accessible pocket gaming soccer sim yet available.
Eines gleich vorweg: Mit den großen Brüdern kann die NGage-Version von FIFA 2005 nicht mithalten – weder spielerisch noch optisch. Auch die Soundkulisse ist ernüchternd schwach. Dennoch machen die Partien immer wieder Spaß. Vor allem der Karrieremodus sowie die Herausforderungen sind für ein Spielchen zwischendurch sehr reizvoll. Wer FIFA light für die täglichen U-Bahnfahrten sucht, könnte auf seine Kosten kommen.
When you take into consideration the differences in power between the N-Gage and today’s high performing consoles you may just be surprised to learn that FIFA 2005 on the N-Gage almost plays as good as its powerful brothers.
Sur un N-Gage où le choix n'est pas vraiment légion, FIFA Football 2005 apparaît comme une option passablement incontournable pour l'amateur de foot. Offrant une prise en main agréable et une réalisation soignée, il est toutefois regrettable que le titre offre si peu de résistance aux méthodes les plus bourrues. Mais vu la concurrence, on saura passer outre.
