There's no doubt that FIFA '96 is currently the best football game on the Saturn, any kind of football, that is. A game for soccer fans of great games alike, FIFA '96 is an excellent continuation of a superb series.
Un jeu complet et doté de graphismes réussis, à réserver aux techniciens accomplis.
I'm not as much of a soccer enthusiast, but this is definitely a quality title. The animation is nice (but a bit framey), the screen movement is generally smooth (but a bit choppy), the soccer play mechanics are EA solid...Not up to the 3DO version, but quite good.
Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM)
FIFA '96 utilizes 3-D perspectives to bring this soccer game to life. The multiple viewpoints let you catch the action from different angles. This title doesn't leave much to be desired, including traditional soccer moves and play-by-play commentary. The action could be more intense, but that's about all it's lacking.
FIFA puts all the strategy and intensity of the world's leading international sport at your fingertips. If you're looking for a realistic soccer challenge on the Saturn, prepare to be knocked on your grass.
Coming Soon Magazine
FIFA Soccer '96 for the Sony Playstation and the Sega Saturn comes with great graphics, many teams, and provides the feel of realistic play, but we found that FIFA Soccer on the 3DO easier to play!
All Game Guide
The big picture is this, FIFA Soccer 96 offers quality soccer action that is just as good, if not better than competition even with the sluggish controls.
