Electronics Arts developed the FIFA series, which gave rise to the FIFA 07 edition of the game. When it was released, FIFA series was one of the best, featuring significant improvements in AI and an online multiplayer mode.
Gameplay and compatibility
The graphics of the game at the time were cutting edge. Now, whatever flair was there is long gone. Graphics are quite blurry and do not compare to the newer games. The AI is considerably poorer than what you'll see in any game now.
With respect to the mechanics, the game is still solid. You won't run into too many problems with faulty controls. A problem though, is that you can't play it on Windows 7 and onwards, making this rather limited in reach.
Play with friends
This FIFA features the first online multiplayer mode available. Also, to this day, the sound effects remain some of the best in the series history. It's one of the first as well to feature the ability to use tactics in the engine.
Players and AI act quite realistically compared to their real-world counterparts. Also, EA introduced a Manager system, which is quite limited. This advancement has led to the continual addition and improvement of the modes of play.
There are many options for FIFA games out there, with some of them being successful and others not improving that much. The 2018 edition had significant improvements to which 07 can't even compare.
The graphics have improved a great deal. Also, the negotiations for players and the Ultimate Team mode have been significantly upgraded. Overall, it was a fresh take on the series.
Pro Evolution Soccer (PES) 2018 is FIFA's main competitor. It features greater ball control and a challenging playstyle that 07 doesn't have. They do have less licensing, so they continue to gain and lose important teams.
Better off with newer versions
Once upon a time, 07 was a must to have. However, with all the new versions to play, it is not worth the trouble. You also won't be able to get it on any of the newer Windows computers. It falls short of any game after 2012, as it doesn't have the timeless qualities some programmes have.
