The Review Itself

On looking at the case i felt the presentation was quite decent and it did boast a lot of features even a 2 player mode if you have 2 PSPs etc, make sure you also have a memorycard to save your settings. Now i never read instructions so ill be honest there, im just a pick up and go player.

Onto the game itself, firstly you are greeted by a screen to choose your language once you have done that it takes around 30 seconds to load, first time you load youll be asked to make a profile but thats an easy task, after that youll come to the option screens and theres just what you would expect from any soccer game these days but i must say the music got on my nerves (a personal taste issue), graphically the screens looked great so for the moment its all very good, anyway lets get to the game ;).

Choosing my usual England team i decided to try to take on some of the worlds best teams however a lot of the teams are locked in exhibition play until you unlock them of course. Loading times during the screens to set the game up were minimal and the screens going into the match seemed very polished.

The commentary on the game was quite decent and i would say above the average of soccer games, the actual soccer itself didnt have the feel of games like Fifa or the Pro Evolution series of games, at times i felt it hard to control with the PSP buttons and the pad, i also felt the animation wasnt as good as you would expect from a USA PSP launch title.

A good soccer game to fill the void before the likes of Fifa 2005 and Pro Evolution hit the PSP but lets be honest the game isnt in the same league as the 2 previous games.

Overall i would give it a 7/10
