This game marked the start of an upward trend in the series. It boasted a refined graphics engine, team and player customisation options, 16 stadiums, improved artificial intelligence, a "Road to World Cup" mode with all FIFA-registered national teams, and a licensed soundtrack featuring popular musical artists of the time. The most ambitious of the series up to that point, it features many accurate team rosters even with reserves for national call up when playing in the round robin qualification modes. Another new feature was the ability to manually change the referee's strictness, allowing major injuries and fouls to go un-noticed.FIFA 98 was also the first of the series to feature a licenced soundtrack, with "Song 2" by Blur used as the intro track for the game. It was the last FIFA game to be released on the 16-bit consoles that the series had originated on.
