This review is from: FIFA Football 2005 (PS2) (Video Game)
This is my second review for this game. My first did not even touch into ONLINE.
How the online works.
There is a huge growing community here. Around 50000 players are registered and that means people to play all the time. The game plays much like a normal 2 player game on the playstation with a friend with little comprimise in game speed usually none at all.
There is a massive ranking system in place that takes into account: Your rating, Your opponents rating, Your teams strength and your opponents team strength and how many goals were scored each way. Then it goes through a formula and tells you exactly how good you are. In place throughout the world. Eg I am roughly 2500 th.
There are a few different catogories for games:
RANKED 8 minutes
UNRANKED Any settings you choose
Tournament Knock out style tournament can be ranked or unranked
This game is also compatible with a headset which makes the game a whole lot better, for the simple reason when you score, you can rub your opponent in the dirt (not literally)
There is also "Ea Messenger" Which serves as a database for your FRIENDS, BLOCKED, Event opponents etc. Which lets you easily talk to people when you need to.
Virtually everyone speaks English eg. I played a hungarian and a portugese with out trouble.
I have many online games. This is the best thanks to Ea's effort to make this a excellent Game without the offline sector.
So if you have completed the game on World Class, Get this for another game entirely.
The human mind is incredible and people always have a few suprises up their sleeves.
