FIFA Gold plays great, looks great, and will blow you away—if you've never played a FIFA game before. If you have, it's much like the FIFAs you've always played, right down to the scratchy Genesis sounds.

The gameplay and controls are as awesome as ever. The most significant new feature of Gold is an indoor mode. In addition to playing with thousands of international players outdoors, you now can bang balls off the boards.

The other noticeable change is in the graphics. Although the FIFA players seem to be shrinking slightly over the years, they now move more fluidly than ever.

FIFA newcomers—buy now. This game sets a new Gold standard. FIFA regulars—rent first to see if the changes warrant a purchase.


  • Unless you've mastered the game, the CPU is better in the net.
  • If you have the ball near your goal with defenders on you, press Button C to clear it.
