FIFA 06, also known as FIFA Soccer 06 and FIFA Football 06, is a video game developed by EA Canada and published by Electronic Arts based around the game of football. It was released in the United States on 4 October 2005 on the PlayStation 2, Xbox, GameCube, PC, PlayStation Portable, Game Boy Advance, and Nintendo DS. It was later released for mobile phones. This was the last FIFA edition to be released exclusively on six generation consoles. The taglines for the game were “You play. They obey.” and “The total soccer experience.” It also marks the first time the PlayStation has been excluded from the FIFA lineup since FIFA Soccer 95 (released only for Mega Drive).
FIFA 06 was the thirteenth game in the FIFA series and the tenth in 3D. It is currently the highest selling game of the FIFA series, ahead of its predecessor FIFA 2005 by over 100,000 copies.In total, FIFA 06 has sold more than 3.6 million copies.
Ronaldinho and Wayne Rooney graced the cover of the game in the European market. Freddy Adu, Ronaldinho, and Omar Bravo were on the North American cover while Ronaldinho and Wayne Rooney were on the Australian, Brazilian, and United Kingdom covers. Lukas Podolski was partnered with Ronaldinho on the German edition of the game. Park Chu-Young was on the only South Korea cover.
Andy Gray and Clive Tyldesley provide commentary for the game’s English version.
Developers of the FIFA series made a complete overhaul of the game’s engine for the 2006 installment of the game, asserting it has improved the control of play, having rewritten more than half the programming code for the game. In addition to a renovation of the game engine which discards the “the ball” system, developers boast a significantly more involved career mode and the introduction of “chemistry” which will determine how good teams play together. This installment will break with a short tradition of commentating from John Motson and Ally McCoist, replaced by ITV’s Clive Tyldesley and Sky Sports pundit Andy Gray.
FIFA still seems to focus on a much more action-based or arcade-style foundation, and the same carries over to the Nintendo DS version. This element is even more obvious because the difficulty level is set so low right from the get-go, most likely to give players the real, energetic feeling of accomplishment by scoring their first goal in their premiere outing. The default difficulty setting, “beginner”, is an absolute joke, and anyone who really wants to be challenged in their soccer matches really need to bump up the AI to a slightly higher level. The higher the difficulty level the more aggressive the goalkeeper and opposing teamplayers will become, so it’s best to find that balance where scores and blocks get on an acceptable level in the matches.
The gameplay is extremely solid for handheld soccer, utilizing the Nintendo DS system’s 3D capabilities for the players and environments. Though it sticks to a smooth 30 frames per second rate most of the time, its framerate isn’t locked down. So it’ll get knocked down a frame or two when there’s more stuff to render, and even jump to 60 if there’s very little displayed on screen. This is only noticeable if you’re actually looking for it, and for the most part the engine is sharp and detailed. Of course, some shortcuts had to be made, including texture details on players — the programmers keep the camera at a safe distance so none of the glaring visual flaws and cheats becomes noticeable. Don’t expect graphics on the level of the console or even the PSP game, though, and the player animations have been cut down in their motion capturing for the DS version that feel a little more stiff than the bigger productions. All the important moves, like headers and bicycle kicks, are available, but their movements don’t flow together as smoothly as the console editions.
