As many of you will know, the official EA Football series of games has been replaced in the PS2's top 10 by the Platinum Edition of the previous FIFA titles. Now this is a game with a bit of extra content, such as the 'Player Legends' packs for each of the games, which seem to aim to bring a personal touch to your football squad. In fact, all of the main game modes are there in one form or another, as well as a few extras. It's an upgrade to the previous game and a good one at that.
This week EA's Premiership Live goes head to head with Konami's Pro Evolution Soccer, which comes along on last week's top ten and grabs fourth place with the highest total sold. It's gone up against FIFA 06 and Landslide, the wonderful indie football title from EA itself. It's been a really good week for smaller developers and we have the best news possible for British football fans - Baldi have made their own football game and it's called Pro Evolution Soccer II.
Although it's not a FIFA title, it's something that you might recognise having trundled into the Active Time Battle mode, which is a mode in the game where you play 22 matches simultaneously, in which you change your tactics, selecting the best player from each team, to beat your opponents.
Although The Sims 2 can lean on its family simulation credentials, I'd be surprised if anyone bought it from the store solely for its football features. Road To Sunday seems to have cashed in on the success of AI Sports Soccer and Football, and the offering is somewhat smaller than the elswhere American based PASP.
Although it's a great game in its own right, Road To Sunday should be a bit more appealing when the EA Football titles finally get a release date. Plus it's an independent title that presents a very different gameplay experience from, say, The Sims. d2c66b5586
