UEFA Champions League 2006-2007
By Sandor Hugert
This soccer game for the XBOX 360 is very well done. This soccer game isn’t any different than the Fifa games considering that it has the same teams and they are both made by EA Sports. However, the only difference is that in this game you get to play the Champions League, which is a positive, and a negative point. It’s nice to actually play with your favorite team in the Champions League, but there really is no other mode in the game that is actually really fun, other than this new mode called Ultimate Team. In this mode you get to basically be the manager except instead of the cool setup of the manager mode in Fifa 07, you play with cards to trade and buy new players in this mode. I had way more fun with the manager mode in Fifa 07 than this mode. Obviously the Champions League tournament mode is very well done since that’s what the whole game is about. It really makes you feel like you’re playing at this awesome tournament, the graphics are amazing. The online for the game is also really fun except for the fact that many players quit during the game once they are losing by like three goals. At tines the game does lag a bit too much when you’re online, but that doesn’t happen too much to ruin the game. I really wish that they made a manager mode in the game where you start out in let’s say the Premiership and you have to get in the top four after the season is done, and then you could take your team to compete in the Champions League. It’s still a really good game and definitely worth at least a rent if you enjoy playing soccer games, or just love the sport like I do.
Score: 9 out of 10
