Mega Score (Mar, 1998)
A bola mais amada do Mundo inteiro volta a invadir os relvados de FIFA e está pronta a brilhar em novos grandes remates feitos pelos futebolistas de consola.

The presentation’s well done, the graphics are detailed and nice to look at, and the sound is adequately atmospheric, more so than in most other soccer games on the Genesis. The additions like practice mode, the create-a-player menu and especially the entire World Cup Qualifier seem like a very neat idea as well. However, the price it took to cram all these extra features into one cartridge seem rather steep: The gameplay is worse than in the ’95 or ’96 editions and the constant interruptions to the game flow due to all these fades to black deeply hurt the immersion factor. None of the 16-bit FIFA games have aged particularly well, but even if you disregard that notion, FIFA ’98 seems like a major regression when compared to its predecessors on the Genesis. It’s still an above average soccer game for this particular platform, but when compared to other games in the same series, it’s definitely one of the worst.
