World Cup 98

 

World Cup 98 is the second edition to the EA soccer lineup this year. Totally revamped menus with new music, a new commentator to call the action and they also added in some commentator's review of your game progress (specific to your team). It...

Ok here is the low down. Its virtually the same as FIFA 98 with the new additions of a little better graphics, a few moves and more strategy. Also enclosed as said above, the old WC teams. I guess they replaced all of FIFA 98 leagues they had. All...

Although the game offers much improvement over FIFA 98, there also were a lot of features that should have been included to make the game more enjoyable. However, if you are a true soccer fan, the game will be great for you. The gameplay is improved...

Product Specifications

We're all familiar with the EA formula by now: a stunning opening credits sequence (which in this game reaches no less than music video level); an unbelievable variety of fully licensed international, professional, and club teams; beautifully rendered stadiums complete with roaring, chanting crowds; and John Motson's dry, humorous commentary. As beautiful as a walk along the Seine, the first things that hit you in FIFA 98 are the expansive stadiums, ever-changing skies, and perfectly rendered 3D characters. Bicycle kicks, slide tackles, diving headers... all of these are actually possible in the game, and advanced moves such as jumping over a slide tackle or flipping the ball over your opponents' heads can be mastered with a slight bit of practice. While EA is famous for its wealth of options, FIFA 98 offers more options than there are types of Brie at the lovely cheese shops along the historic Champs Elysees. There are hundreds of teams, three difficulty levels, and five different play options, including friendly, league, penalty shots, and the road to the World Cup. Most impressive, though, are the actual team management options in the game, allowing you to choose from multiple formations, player positions, and strategies. More amazingly, you can also adjust each individual player's attack BIAS and aggression level, choose who takes free and corner kicks, and create or purchase new players to add to your club. All of this is good, but what sticks out in FIFA 98 like a baguette from a shopping bag is the game play. Fast, challenging (at least for a while), and as smooth as a neatly rolled Galoise, one game immediately erases all memory of what must now be seen as the transitional FIFA '97. While this fast pace may be at the expense of true realism, it is certainly more entertaining to play; slide tacklers get back to their feet in time to rejoin the action, shots occasionally find the corner of the net, and it is actually possible to win a fifty-fifty ball from a computer opponent. Additionally, the computer AI is much improved, allowing you to play the ball into open space and let your teammate run on to it, creating a fast-break opportunity. This does work against you when you are trying to play the ball back to the goalie (and you end up rolling it into open space in front of the net), but, for the most part, it creates a faster, more exciting style of play than any soccer game ever made.
