Acknowledgement ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 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. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2.
