So i was browsing for the songs from FIFA 2005 (which may have the best soundtracks in a game ever) and i realised that after being tired of the stupid FIFA 13, what i need is actually another round of FIFA 2005. Oh my God ... this game will never get old. I remember getting it in 2004 and playing it all day long. In my opinion is still the best FIFA game ever and can be played no matter the times we are living.
Over the years i played every FIFA, from 05 until 13 but every year i came back to 05. It just has something about it ... no stupid engines (player impact, first touch control) that can ruin the game ... it's just football! Great soundtracks and it was the first FIFA in which the players actually started to look like the ones in real life.
I am now writing this article on full throttle because of one soundtrack that was present in FIFA 2005. For those of you who still remember here is the name of it: Oomph! - Augen Auf. While looking for opinions on FIFA 2005 and if someone still plays it, i was surprised to find out that this is actually one of the most loved FIFA games and people are remembering the game with pleasure.
Here is a screenshot from the game which we reviewed back in '09:
Just by looking at this picture i got great memories coming to my mind. In this FIFA there were no idiotic 30m goals and i don't remember scoring goals because of the bugs. Actually i don't remember getting any errors at all. This is perfection!
The game was running smoothly and you could pass well to your team mates without any stupid first touch control coming in. My first team that i used in my career was Hellas Verona and since then i always used them no matter what version of FIFA i was playing. Dario Biasi, the left breaker was pushed all the way up into the other side of the field ... i made him an attacker because of this 99 speed skill. Not matter what team i was playing against, he always got passed them but 90% of the times he would miss because of his poor shooting skills. I took Hellas Verona from Serie B and made them win the Serie B, promote to Serie A, win the championship in Serie A (beating teams like AC Milan, Juventus and Inter Milano), winning the Italian Cup and also winning the Champions League. I remember once i had two games on December 31st but hey they were professional players so all they had to do was to concentrate and win the games.
The games against AC Milan on World Class were the hardest ones. In about two years i was always meeting them in the Italian Cup and even in the Champions League. I was barely having more victories against them than they had against me. At one decisive game i was 2-2 in the 88th minute. I wasn't scoring too much from crosses but this time i gave it a shot. I runned on the right side, took the cross and one of my attackers (if i well remember), Antimo Iunco or Dario Biasi scored with a header. 3-2 for me in the 89th minute for me. I though it was all over but the opponent was moving like crazy on World Class so they started one last attack in the 90th minute. It was something like mine just one minute ago, a cross and Shevchenko ... took a scissors but missed it with only a few cm on the right post. I watched the replay over and over again and i still didn't believe that he missed and i was winning. I kicked the ball with my goalkeeper and it was all over, 3-2 for me ... 7 years from that game already.
I'm preparing for some FIFA 2005 with it's soundtracks which actually brings me in my head a lot of moves and tricks.
Ronaldinho was 24 years old and was one of the best players, if not the best in FIFA 2005. Thierry Henry also was at it's peak. Cristiano Ronaldo can be seen in the picture ... he was only 19 years old!
8 years since this game has been released and almost 8 years since i got it and i want to play it again. Anybody up for a match?
