4.0 out of 5 stars Not Quite Perfect, 4 Dec. 2004
This review is from: FIFA Football 2005 (PS2) (Video Game)
Superb game with just three faults:-
1. Most open play goals are scored either by crossing the ball for your striker to head home or by threading a through ball into the penalty area for your striker to run onto. There aren't enough scrappy goals. As a result 95% of goals are scored by strikers - more if they take the free kicks and penalties. In the last season I played Darius Vassell scored 55 goals (for Brentford!)
2. The one fault with the commentary is that they declare you Champions before you've won the title. It's annoying to have McCoist say "He won't mind missing that as they're already the Champions" when you're 8 points clear with 9 games to go.He will then say it four times a game thereafter until the end of the season.
3. I can't say this for certain but I believe the computer fixes certain cup games. It was really frustrating to lose 3-0 away after taking a 2-0 lead into the 2nd leg of a European semi final. I hadn't lost a game by more than a goal all season but suddenly their 'keeper makes 6 outstanding saves while thier strikers produce flicks, chip through balls and vollies that you simply can't defend against.
Apart from these few gripes (the last one could be sour grapes on my part) the game is well worth the money and the attention to detail is incredible. I only hope that by 2009 Ashley Cole, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Ledley King, Darius Vassell and Alan Smith have all really signed for Brentford and we're on our way to our third successive Premierhip title!
