Product Description

From the off, its fair to concede that the worlds best-selling action football game, FIFA 2005, hasnt changed an awful lot in the past twelve months. Those who bought the last version will be entirely familiar with the games look and feel, and could rightly argue that once more this new version is an evolution at best. But its still quite a good one. The FIFA series has, in recent times, got into the habit of adding one big new feature each year, with middling successes. Last years, if you remember, was the impressive-but-tricky off the ball control. This year we get a simpler addition, but a far more effective one. Its the first touch option, and it genuinely can open the game up, whether you choose to use it for a quick pass or tighter control. And it works because its straightforward--theres no endless messing around with buttons to get it moving. The rest of the game attracts the usual annual pros and cons. Its presentation is second-to-none, and for a more attacking-focused game, you need look no further. Whats more, the single player mode is substantial, and very long lasting. The downside is the Pro Evolution Soccer franchise which is, and remains, the choice of the hardcore gamer. Yet that doesnt mean theres not fun to be had with FIFA 2005. Quite the contrary, in fact. Every year, FIFA can be relied on to provide an entertaining, engrossing and long-lasting football game. Thus, whilst it might be in second place, and this latest release doesnt change that, it remains a strong and worthwhile runner-up.--Simon Brew

From the off, it's fair to concede that the world's best-selling action football game, FIFA 2005, hasn't changed an awful lot in the past twelve months.

Having bought FIFA 2005 on the day of release, I have played it 5 hours a day until Pro Evo 4 was released (I work nights so it's easy). It is deffinetly a step up from last years version. The career mode is very addictive and all the usual EA glossy presentation and official licensing is very nice. But the game play, though slightly improved is still not a match for Pro Evo 1 let alone 2 and 3. It just does not quite feel like you are in a real football match in the same way that Pro Evo does. It feels more like an arcade game than it's rival and goals are to easy to come by for both teams. The extremely satisfying feeling of hanging on to a 0-0 draw to go through on away goals is just not there. That said, it is a very good football game and it is bridging the gap to it's Konami rival little by little each year. The good news for FIFA fans is that I have now played about 15 matches on the new Pro Evo and my first thoughts are that it seems to have taken a slight backwards step for the first time ever. For the record I would not give Pro Evo full marks for the first time ever and I would only give it 4 stars.

I got a ps2 earlier this year and one of the first games i bought was FIFA football 2005. I used to have Fifa 2004 for PS1 and it was ok for the first 5 minutes but after a while you get fed up with winning every game 8-0 but on 2005 winning is a challenge. However I advise you start using the Amateur difficulty level before moving on to Semi-pro, the new first touch control is brilliant, its simple and easy but very effective. I suggest you put some time in on the practice pitch first to get used to the game. So buy it.

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.

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!

I like this game. Having played both Pro Evo 4 and FIFA 2005, I lean slightly towards FIFA (shock, horror!), mainly due to the general ease with which you can get into the whole game. No doubt Pro Evo has superb gameplay and you can play around with the tactial side of the game a whole lot more, but lets face it, most of us want a game which we can enjoy with our mates. Easy to use, easy to learn, and easy to improve. Ease of use is the hall mark of this game. Its got a good feel, and the controls remain slick and precise, unlike pro evo, which can take some time to get used to.
The new first-touch system adds both realism and entertainment, and is a fanatastic addition. Corners and throw-ins are more realistic and merge well with the action, and most importantly, quick-breaks work very well, since the keeper can do long throws - something that wasn't quite there in 04 edition. Most importantly, the through ball ctually works and plays well with the first touch system, making games entertaining and fast moving.
Overall, its a definite improvement, and a real rival for Pro evo, especially amongst the majority of gamers who just want to enjoy playing without so much stress.
