FIFA 98 is THE best FIFA game out there.
Everything except the graphics. The graphics are not as good as the versions ahead of it, but the music (Blur, Crystal Method) is superb, you qualify for the world cup, there is league play, and every int'l team in the world is available for play. Much better than 99 or even 2000.
The Bottom Line
Go out and buy/download it today. Awesome game. Especially for Crystal Palace fans :-)
