"Aiming to be the first football simulation that is realistic in the true sense of the word, FIFA Soccer 96 was extremely popular at the time of release. It was hailed as the first really successful FIFA release, and opened the way for yearly revisions of the concept.
There were a number of factors that made FIFA96 stand out from the crowd of other football sims. Firstly, the game's commentary was revolutionary at the time -- the renowned British commentator John Motson comments all the incidents and happenings on the pitch in real-time. The ambient commentary is varied, and systems with more than the minimum memory level get extra commentary phrases.
The Virtual Stadium technology has numerous pre-defined camera angles. The game even has a SVGA mode for better-than-minimum system
FIFA96 boasts eleven leagues from all around the world, ranging from the unknown players of the Malaysian league to the celebrated stars of the English and Italian leagues. 59 International teams are also featured, and it's possible to match the teams you want to against each other through friendlies, or you can also choose to play domestic tournaments or International ones such as the World Cup. If you're not satisfied with the composition of the various teams, you can create your own dream team through the custom team creator.
FIFA always kept trying to reach soccer number ones. Unfortunatelly episodes 94 and 95 weren't belonging to this category. In that time thanks to great playbility dominated Sensible Soccer (the elder certainly knows) and right behind it were Actual Soccer series rather than FIFA. The reverse has begun thanks due to volume FIFA 96.
EA came up in that time with new 3D engine. Gamers could, and even now still can, enjoy the possibilities of this graphical working. Of course it was going hand in hand with progress of an IT - on market started to be available graphic cards with support of 3D. Every cool gamer in that time was sick for the best hardware and so for the games where he could use it. The gamer's reward then was brand new view of the game. And on the top of that was whole system rebuilt into 32 bit depth.
The game is greatly designed even what concerns the playbility. All those centres and long balls are great. Sound reaches top qualities.
