We will be returning this year with FIFA 2005 Online. It will be ready very soon. This year the features of the site will be better than ever. Make sure you return over the coming days for the opening of the site.
Eurogamer.net have given their verdict on FIFA 2005.
"Once you accept the limitations, there's no doubt that FIFA 2005 is very enjoyable whether played alone or with your mates. The addition of Live play is without doubt a major bonus for those of us fed up with having to wrestle with PS2 Online. The truth is, despite there being online play in last year's version, we hardly touched it. This time, however, you can hardly get us off it, and it has already become this reviewer's big online kick."
EA announced today that FIFA Street is in development. This announcement comes as FIFA 2005 is officially released around the world today. Wil Mozell, senior producer for the project, had this to say about FIFA Steet.
"What FIFA Street represents is a movement in football and a break from the modern game. We are stripping the sport down to its core and delivering a game that's all about freestyle attitude and individual skill, something I believe is at the heart of every football fan."
FIFA Street joins EA Sports BIG's line-up of successful "Street" games, including NBA and NFL versions. We will have a trailer for you to download shortly, but if you've already got your hands on FIFA 2005 you can view the trailer in the game.
3DAvenue give their opinion of EA's latest FIFA release.
"FIFA 2005 again shows EA's commitment to providing one of, if not the best soccer gaming experience around. The brand new career mode has both its pros and cons but overall enhances the replay value of the game significantly and FIFA fans will relish the chance to take each other on online."

That's right people! - Breamster.com is now 1 year old as today we celebrate our 1st Anniversary! In the space of a year we have had over 600,000 unique hits to the main home page alone!
I started this project in the summer of 2003 but the real site as you now know it didn't get properly released until the 5th 2003, after several design changes, etc. I wanted to try and offer the community a unique experience during every visit. This has been achieved by including the most important FIFA news, download news and world football news, all offering a mixed content.
We have a talented team of news posters, graphics editors and patch makers who I would personally like to thank for all their hard work, ideas and support.
Our strong partnership with the talented guys at FIFAECP.com has also helped produce a great forum community that is growing day by day (http://forums.breamster.com). As it stands we now have over 1200 people registered since the boards were re-released back in February 2004.
Our long list of site features also grows regularly and in particular the first and only community site to have a Desktop News Alert System in the shape of InstantBreamster (http://instant.breamster.com)!
This milestone of one year may seem over shadowed by Sweetpatch's recently celebrated 5th anniversary (respect to Dave's hard work), but as a "new" site we want to mirror their achievements and have a long reign within the FIFA community!
Better still that we are able to celebrate this during the same week as FIFA 2005 gets released!
