The opening cinema is a little on the lame side, and the menu screens are ugly and confusing, just like Fox Sports Golf
. Aside from that, the graphics for Fox Sports Soccer ‘99
are pretty good. Two graphic touches that I really like are the way the net of the goal realistically reacts when the soccer ball hits it, and when a player attempts a slide tackle/steal, the player leaves skid marks on the grass. Nice.
On the sound side of things, the commentary is average -- but in a brilliant move by Fox Sports, you can choose English or Spanish commentary. To my knowledge, this has never been done before, and makes you wonder why it has taken this long to do, especially when a CD format has oodles of storage space. Way to go, Fox!
