Enhancing the engine debuted with the previous game and official 2006 World Cup game, FIFA Soccer 07 includes enhanced ball and player collision physics and more player animations adding to the 16 trick moves and first touch ball reception introduced to the game engine with the previous games in the series. Players can choose between 2 and 10 minutes halves in three different game speeds and four different difficulty levels. Over 510 teams are accurately represented in the game. 27 leagues from 20 nations are included, along a "Rest of the World" for the best teams in championships left outside the game and international teams. Spain, England (with two), France, Germany, and Italy also feature second divisions. Players can also create two clubs, customizing their badge, kits and home stadium, selecting players from anywhere in the game, along with the starting budget in manager mode. The player creation tool remains mostly unchanged, with the ability to customize everything, from faces (with a complete set of options, from jaw width to eyebrow shape) to the appearance and playing abilities.

While the focus of this yearly update was on the game engine, the Manager mode was also enhanced: players now also improve their playing ability from being active members of the squad, forcing the player to choose between keeping his celebrated stars near retirement in the starting eleven or give the benefits of the youth system a chance to shine. Another new feature, in what is now the primary mode of the series, is the ability to watch the game in a simplified text mode, with the ability to jump into action to turn the events still available. The points system was replaced by a less abstract currency model (with the ability to choose between Pounds, Euros or Dollars). Other game modes include Tournaments (including the creation of custom tournaments) and Challenges. By completing challenges (similar to the Global Challenges mode in World Cup 2006) the player can spend points in the Fanshop with items such as new teams, a special overhead camera, new balls from Adidas (including all original World Cup balls from 1974 to 2002), stadiums, third kits and special celebrations for created players.

Finally, online gaming received a new mode: Interactive Leagues. These are online-only leagues based on the fixtures of their real counterparts (English Premier League, French Ligue 1, German Bundesliga, and Mexican 1st division). Then, online players go head-to-head with their favorite teams with a victory counting one vote for their favorite team. Once the week is over, the team with more votes is declared the winner of the week, getting three points. The number of weekly matches a player can do in this mode is unlimited.

Best Soccer Game for the GameCube

The Good
This game is fantastic. The game is realistic and fun. The graphics is great. Players models look detailed and everything else is good. The sound is excellent. The music is top notch. There are a total of 40 songs in this game from artists around the globe. EA did an excellent job with the music in this game. The commentary in this game is great. The commentators rarely repeat which is a very good thing. There are many teams and game modes to choose. It even has the MLS! This game is always fun to play especially against a friend. Playing alone is fun also because the CPU is pretty smart and it will give you a real challenge.

The Bad
Although the graphics look good it could be better especially the crowd. They look generic and flat. In close, they look very blurry as well. Also, on certain scenes the game look very dark. The commentary is somewhat repetitive after you've played it for a few weeks. Other than that this game is great.

The Bottom Line
This game is extremely fun to play if you are into soccer. If you are a soccer fan you need to get this game. It's the best FIFA soccer game the Nintendo GameCube can offer. Get this game now because it's so much fun to play.

Best at series.

The Good
Mechanics of the game were changed. Thanks to the advanced physical engine the ball after the shot is tumbling down as this way as in fact. Slight changes happened in the managerial mode (currency, the progress of competitors, the school of juniors). The audience better behaves on the court. To feel the primary atmosphere of matches. It doesn't finally have a problem with the interface (at once all stresses appear). Even the not-revised version doesn't already have disastrous mistakes putting the games off.

The Bad
Unfortunately however the mating call is worse than competitive series pro Evolution Soccer. FIFA 07 is schematic (at least not this way as earlier), simple and the like apart from that Polish commentaries of Szpakowski and Szaranowicz (I am Polish) are weak. Apart from that shaders, even though they are hiding from view of the majority of ugly graphical elements until they are pricking into eyes. And complete lack of placing tactics of our team.

The Bottom Line
FIFA 07 sold out in the number of as many as 6 million copies.
