This review is from: FIFA Football 2005 (PS2) (Video Game)
I have played both the new editions of fifa and pro evo and can't really decide between the two. I know pro evo cult fanatics will get upset when i say this but fifa has sorted itself out. Pro evo has to win on ball physics and variants. but what fifa lacks in this department it makes up in others. I can finally see where they are going with all of their new features. Off the ball control and first touch have become useful functions and the fluidity of the game has vastly improved. Fifa 2004 had a number of problems with crossing the ball for headers and other aspects of the gameplay. These have all been ironed out. But the best thing about fifa is that it is compeletely submersive. It has totally updated commentary, chants, players and stadiums. If your are a soccer fan and actually want to go to your stadium and play with your players then this is your game (like playing with rooney at old trafford). I found it particularly fun playing with friends in a custom made knockout tournament. The game commentary is very in depth and follows home and away goals in knock out tournaments and really builds up the tension. This game is well worth a look and all pro evo snobs who think they know it all can no longer just turn their noses up and ignore it.
