eToychest has posted their review of FIFA 06: Road to FIFA World Cup, giving it a 49 out of 100.
"It really is a pity that FIFA 06: Road to FIFA World Cup fell victim to “launchitis.” The rushed development is written over nearly every aspect of the game – it’s a wonder they bothered to push the thing out the door at all, because it’s sure to hurt the brand more than delaying the release would have. The game modes are barren, the graphics are underwhelming, and the online play is a heady disappointment. Soccer fans would do well to either pick up the Xbox version of the game, or better yet, wait for Winning Eleven 9 to come out for the Xbox. As for the Xbox 360, it will be without an adequate footie title for the foreseeable future, and that’s a real cryin’ shame. For all the potential the platform has, it may be a while before publishers finally deliver a sports game worth our time and money."
