Advantages: superb graphics
Disadvantages: fake names
There is no ISS 98 section so this will have to do here!
The follow up to ISS 64, this is easily the best football game on the console. It has more teams, improved graphics and better gameplay. There are now more moves in the game for you to do, and scoring goals at the top level against the computer is not easy.
The players names are still fake, though they can be edited to anything of your choice. A really good improvement on the previous game is that the commentary is much better. More words are used, and it runs along more smoothly. Playing against the computer is fun, but playing against a friend is much better, especially when you score a thirty yard thunderbolt and then rub it in his/her face. If you want to go one step further then try the 4 player option. This is absolutely brilliant and tests how well you are on teamwork.
There are options in the game for you to be able practice all your skills and techniques, and you can also have penalty shoot-outs. The gameplay is overall better than ISS 64 and way better than the FIFA games. Moves can be recreated very accurately, and game scores are quite realistic.
If you bought ISS64 and thought it was good, then you have to buy this game. Quite simply it is the best football game on the Nintendo 64.
