It's the same game but a bit worse, believe it or not. Gameplay is exactly the same, referees seem a bit worse and the lower-league squads are a DISGRACE - they've got eleven players for each team and then they've just put "player 13" - e.g. Smith, Jones, Davies, #13, #17. No research at all, surely they could have just sucked data out of the main current-gen database rather than have to do seperate DS research and fuck it up completely??
Still, if you only support the big teams, I suppose the graphics are enough of an improvement to make you look twice at the game. The PSP version is far more impressive though (and this is coming from someone who plays his DS three times a week and his PSP once a month).
When it comes to console ports, the PSP is the one to use. The NDS isnt powerful enough to a good job on the port like the PSP would.
Stick to the more innovative and exclusive games when you play the NDS. Thats where the handheld beats all other formats.
