Trivia

Reception and Cartridge Limitations

Due to being cartridge-based, compared to earlier releases of FIFA, FIFA Soccer 64 is stripped down detail-wise. Reduction to one commentator, the low quantity of different lines spoken by commentator, poor quality of when lines are spoken, poor game performance/frame-rate, over-abbreviating and omitting textual details were all reported problems with this new FIFA release. The sole commentator will often erroneously interrupt himself, sometimes even immediately contradicting himself. This angered many fans due to widespread hype and excitement for FIFA's first 3D soccer game on the N64. Another notable release demonstrating the console's limitations in quality due to its usage of the cartridge form-factor.

Electronic Gaming Monthly named FIFA Soccer 64 as Most Disappointing Sequel citing many of the above problems as the reason.

Unfortunately, the follow-up release to this, FIFA 99 for N64, suffered from many of the same problems for many of the same reasons.
