boot, January 1997

"Soccer's the most popular sport on the planet. Hell, even America's starting to sit up and notice that goofy checkered ball; and FIFA '97 is the best computer version of the game to date. Somehow, EA manages to improve the sterling gameplay with each successive version.

"The graphics haven't been radically upgraded: players are small, but nicely shaped and easy to recognize. They look positively real when running, kicking, and bouncing the ball off their little heads, thanks to incredibly smooth animation..."

"...Good sound effects add to the game's immersive feel, as does the realistic weather - ranging from dry as a bone to extremely wet. Skill levels start at Beginner and advance through Semi-Pro to Pro."

"The auto-boot disc is full of demos and video clips to watch before getting down to the serious business of scoring, and while enabling the speech option eats up massive acres of hard drive space - it's surely worth it to hear the announcer call the play-by-play. (And with a decidely British accent too.)"
