The Bottom Line

Winning Eleven 6 is the world's most popular soccer game for a reason... it's really, really good. Graphics, gameplay, options, are all very tight. But is there a market in North America?

Guide Review - Winning Eleven 6 - PS2

There's simply no comparison... this is the best soccer game in the history of soccer games. Man, do I wish all sports games were this good.

The players are very lifelike, the 14 stadiums are beautiful, the camera is great. This is a good looking game... and oddly enough, a great playing game. No arcade affects, no powerups, no catching on 'fire', just sweet smooth, fast soccer. I don't even follow soccer and I could help but get sucked in. Kudos to Renderware for taking such pride in their product.

To be fair there has to be a downside... so here it is, occasionally there is a little slowdown, especially on corner kicks. But umm, that's it. Other than that it truly is the prefect soccer game. If you dig soccer, you have to have it.
