A good, solid PSP sports experience.
Following in the wake of its classic console cousins, it wouldnt be a surprise if FIFA on the PSP was little more than a pale imitation of its distinguished predecessors. In reality, though, its a worthy addition to EAs million-selling soccer series.
Although its difficult to pull-off some of the games complex trick shots as the PSP doesnt offer the same intuitive interface as a console controller, FIFA 06 nonetheless offers pretty much everything that fans of the series have come to expect, including 350 fully licensed club and international teams, a transfer option and a slick challenge mode where you can try your hand at over 40 real-life scenarios and use your silky skills to win the day.
But what really makes FIFA 06 essential is its head-to-head mode where you can challenge your friends using the PSPs wireless connection, an option that occasionally suffers from jerky animation but is still the best footy experience on any portable console.
