I found myself not liking this game as much as Eric Cantona Football Challenge, mainly due to the controls. When you don't have the ball, the computer usually puts it to the closest person, though this is not done as well as in the aforementioned game. The kicking mechanics are like FIFA 96, where you kick in the same direction as you are pointing. This turns into an exercise in frustration, though, as the same button used for kicking is also used for sliding, and you almost always kick the ball away immediately after gaining position. Passing is very difficult, as the field of view is not nearly enough, and it is often the case that your teammates are nowhere to be seen. Also, it often happens that if the opponent has the ball, none of your players are in the screen, leaving you to guess where the player you control is. When you have the ball, it is far too easy to lose it. I found that even when I was running straight, and unimpeded, that I still lost the ball.
Still, despite my gripes with the controls, I still liked this one better than FIFA 96. The gameplay was fast, and even adjustable. The amount of options and controls make it inferior to Eric Cantona Football Challenge, in my opinion.
