  1. INTRODUCTION
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
  International Superstar Soccer is the 3rd soccer game released by Konami of
  America in Sony Playstation Console. The other two are Goal Storm & Goal Storm
  97. Maybe you guys realize that i was the author of Fifa'99 FAQs, so i want
  to explain the difference between Fifa'99 & ISS Pro'98.
  The ISS Pro'98 game is more easier & fun to play than Fifa'99. Why ?
  You just can see that in ISS Pro'98 there are no complicated button combination
  like Fifa'99 has. The game is just that simple. Shooting, passing, heading, 
  volleying are easier to do. There are no in game strategy, IGM, just only has
  simple strategy. The "ball in the air" situation is more "live" than Fifa'99. 
  The bad is the player are not licensed (Ronaldo is Ronarid ?), the movement 
  aren't as realistic as Fifa'99. So my suggestion is, if you find that a soccer
  game is seriously, need more skills to play, & cool then pick Fifa'99, but if 
  you just wanna play easy, think soccer as fun & get comfortable with, choose
  ISS Pro'98. Overall Fifa'99 (9/10), ISS Pro (8/10). Ok let's cut the crap, go
  to features section.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  - The through pass (Triangle button) is the best way to destruct opponent's
    defense area. Make sure to do it at the right timing.
 
  - Combine between Dash & normal run to pass opponent's players, you must learn
    to do when to use Dash, when to use normal run.

  - Corner Kick is the best way to score, the percentage is 80%. Pass to the
    center of opponent's penalty area then try to head it using Square button.

  - During play you can use Select button to change your player priority, if
    you push select, you see that the little box under the player name moving.
    Forwars is more attacking, cente is normal, back is defensive.

  - The best formation to use is 4-4-2 C formation because the middle area 
    are very strong & penalty area are more saver because of the devensive 
    midfielder are helping to defend from opponent's attack.
