I find that this game feels amazing to play. Shots are more accurate than ever, and I never would have expected to see these changes in the first place. Picked through the center back or centre forward, respectively, I found the shots to be more powerful than ever, and it is a good feeling to pull the trigger on a shot and watch it go past the keeper, into the net, and thus start the celebrations. Then of course, there is the way the ball moves around. The connection betweenFIFAandFIFA 98is so strong, that the game seems to almost think its a real soccer game. The ball flies around in the most natural and enjoyable fashion ever.
This was the first year I playedFIFAfor the PlayStation and I got far too used to the feel of the controller. I do not know what I would do without it. With this in mind, the game is sold at a ludicrously low price, and it is a bit of a shame that it is not more affordable. Looking at this game as a mere game, it is not a bad game. It has its fair share of flaws, and yet the intention to make it the biggest soccer game on the planet was well-intended. The game is just not quite as well executed as it could have been.
I thoroughly enjoyed this game, and I could never, ever get enough of it. As I have said before, it is the best FIFA that EA has ever released, bar none. For that reason, I don't think it's worth the 500 Euro asking price, since it seems to have a deficiency in the goalkeeper kicking/stomping area.
