ReceptionEdit

The game was a bestseller in the UK. IGN gave the PlayStation version 7.8 out of 10, while GamePro gave the same version 4 out of 5. For the DOS version PC Gamer gave a 92 out of 100. Sega Saturn Magazine gave the Saturn version an 80%, applauding the comprehensive selection f players, customizing options, and camera angles, but complaining that the animation is "both slow and slightly jittery." They concluded, "[FIFA] '96 makes a brave attempt to capture the real thrill of football. At the end of it all though, it lacks the smoothness and speed to merit championship distinction."
