The 2007 edition of the great EA Sports footy franchise
Windows 8 / Windows 7 / Windows Vista / Windows XP
FIFA 07 -- also known as FIFA Soccer 07 and FIFA Football 07 -- is the 2007 edition of the EA (Electronic Arts) Sports soccer video game series. In addition to Microsoft Windows-based PCs, the game was released for the Nintendo GameCube, Nintendo DS and Game Boy Advance; the Xbox and Xbox 360; and the PlayStation 2 and PlayStation Portable. It is notable for being the last FIFA game released for the GameCube, Game Boy Advance and Xbox.
FIFA 07 marked the first conscious effort by Electronic Arts to rival Konami's Pro Evolution Soccer (formerly Winning Eleven) series, which critics preferred due to its more realistic game-play mechanics. Moving away from its arcade feel -- which involved an overflow of goals -- this 2007 entry is more tactical than previous iterations, due to a complete overhaul of the game engine. Thus players had to adopt real-world tactics and think like a real player or manager to get the best of opposing sides. Also, FIFA 07 had what the Winning Eleven series lacked: licensing to use the names for real players and teams.
FIFA 07 also continued with its enhancements of player actions and movements, sound effects, stadium chanting and fan songs. Also, it is with this entry that EA Sports introduced online game play, which enabled customers to play against each other in the EA Sports Interactive Leagues. FIFA 07 is a vast universe, with over 10,000 players in 27 international leagues.
The major drawback of FIFA 07 is its now-dated game play and graphics. While FIFA 07 was a watershed moment for the series, later entries -- especially FIFA Soccer 12 -- greatly improved upon its template.
