Gonna download it in an hour or so. Even with Pro Evos recent flaws, I still think it plays a better game in terms of gameplay. Despite what people say about Fifa every year, I have a feeling am still gonna prefer Pro Evo.

I really enjoyed that! I thought Euro2008 was a very good game, and this was is definitely better.

Looking forward to 3 weeks time!

Not a fanboy by any stretch of the imagination but the PS3 demo is **** poor in my opinion.

I own both Fifa 08 and PES 2008 for the PS3 so am fairly impartial...

To me people seem to banter on about how poor the last few new Pro Evo's have been and how there is hardly ever any major additions/improvements introduced and for most of that I agree. But this Fifa takes the mick! Same menus, same intro to each game, players look exactly the same and no graphical improvement whatsoever in my opinion.

What's more the game still plays slowly, players do some riculous things and turning your own players feels like steering a shopping trolley with one buggered wheel.

Although i'm not expecting miracles from Pro Evo this year, I think I can already predict where my 40.00 is going come October and it's not in EA's pockets.

Played the demo and loved it. Seems like EA listened to the complaints people had and sorted them which must be a 1st. Best most realistic football game ever, time for Konami to show their cards now too because if it is like last years it will get poor reviews again.

awesome that is only like 11 days away then :)

Gamespot have a really good preview up about the 10 vs 10 gameplay and they say it is a revoulutionairy addition to sports games, eventually will have no need for cpu players. Is a good read so should check it out.
http://uk.gamespot.com/xbox360/sports/fifasoccer09/news.html?sid=6197498&tag=topslot%3Bthumb%3B3&page=1

Another interesting thing is that in the 10 vs 10 you create a club (like a clan/guild) and you compete in tournaments. With the ultimate goal being a virtual world cup with the best players from each country playing. Maybe we can get a Saints team back into the promised land if even it is only in a virtyal world :)

I liked the demo, and will be purchasing the game.

They have definitely improved the weight and ball physics. This one was of the biggest things FIFA had wrong with it. Another think they have improved on is the speed. While it still takes alot of build up to get anywhere near to scoring a goal, it's abit pacer.

Apart from that, I think the bend when you take a free-kick is very odd. No-where near it being something that will annoy me enough to not buy the game, but did anyone else feel this?

Well only a few days to go and reviews are starting to come in.

First up is IGN. Now those who dont know IGN is a sponsor of Konami. They put money into the development of the Pro Evolution series which in return they get the advertising boards in PES. They sponsor the PES UK tournament. So as you would expect IGN have been somewhat a little biased over this little "deal". Those who can remember IGN caused a storm by giving PES08 a 9.2 rating. Even the official xbox magazine which hands out good scores as if they were cereal toys gave it a 45% score. It's metascore was 74% and was largely panned. So what did IGN give FIFA08? a great big 7.9...

So then obviously Fifa 09 you would expect to do just as favourably on IGN this year right? Well in what can only be seen as saving face from the storm set to come they have come out and given it a 89% score. They even said there is no contest anymore in what is better out of Fifa 09 and PES 09. So naturally they would never give their own game a poor reveiw so i would expect PES09 will probably get a 90% score this year.

So there you have it. When the enemy comes out and gives the game a 10% increase over what was already a good game last year then you know good reviews are bound to follow elsewhere.

Not sure if the season is multiplayer but the 10vs10 will have leagues/cups etc.. it is sports version of a clan or a guild. In the UK at least it is about 50-50 in terms of who has a PS3 or 360 so i would expect there to be the same amount of people out there willing to join in.
There are various places that help set up leagues and things if you want to join on your own/dont have enough people etc.. i think EA run the website somewhere.

If you get really good you can play teams on http://gamebattles.com/
And if your major good you could go pro and get 1m for winning world championships :)

Sweet that you got it early!

Are the transfers up to date i.e Berbatov at Man U and Robhino at City? Maybe even Robertson at Saints? Across the net i think generally people are really happy with the game. Nice that you can change the speed of the game to kill off that "its too slow" argument people had.

Also is it true that ****hole Fratton Park is in it?

I dunno about Berbatov or Robinho, but I'm currently in the middle of an warm up game against Pompey and they have Gamsi in the default Saints side. I don't think Robertsons there yet though.

I expect any late transfers will be added in a patch at some point anyway. Maybe on friday.

I'm not sure Fratton Park is in it but I'll have to let you know tomorrow as Im not a paying user and this is my last post!

Had an hour or so on it now, love it!

Got into an exhibition game to try it out, get a bit of practice. Played Skates and got mashed 0-4 :( it is very very hard to score this year. A few other things i noticed.

When you do a nasty tackle on someone and the ref says play on, you now can get a yellow card/red card when the play stops. Used to get away with some harsh tackles in 08 because of that so i guess that is a good thing.

You can play with 3 other people in a multi-player season mode. Had a brief go at it and made a char etc.. is quite cool as you can choose your name and the commentators will say it. Unless it is a wierd name that nobody has heard before.

You see the difference in the players a lot now. If someone is crap (take Lancashire for example) he will get murderd against fast forwards. However the physics collisions/jostling is much better now.

Will take awhile to get used to. A cool thing is when you boot up for the first time it will go through your achivements in 08 and recomend what level you should play as etc.. i got intermediate and i thought i was good at 08 :(

All in all much better then 08 and they have improved on the annoying things i think.

Playing 10 vs 10 will be chaos to begin with i bet :)

Same as me, but I only lost by 2! And Defoe skied a pen!

When I started a season, I set up my formation to the current 4-3-3 we're using at the moment with the regular line up. Kicked off against Derby and they had maybe 4-5 passes and walked it into the net. :(

Theres a learning curve for sure. Not that it's a bad thing, though.

Been playing the Be a pro single player game. Really enjoying it. You start off playing reserve games. In these games your given targets i.e get a 7 rating, score a goal, help the team win etc.. if you meet these targets or generally play well you get given experience. With this you train your skills which makes you better. I chose to be a CM player so naturally i see the ball quite a bit. It is good because it shows you your stats i.e passes completed etc.. and you can see where you rank in the match against the other players. If you get sent off you have to miss games so dont get sent off!
I now see why they chose the season to be 4 years. At the end of the 4 years if you have done well and been picked to the national squad you play in the world cup. Think that is a nice edition. Playing Be A Pro season is soooo hard though. I guess it will get easier as you get better. Lots of fun though.

One slightly annoying thing i have found though is that you can get yellow cards quite easy now. Sometimes it feels that every tackle gets a card. Hopefully they patch a fix for that as i can imagine in 10 vs 10 it could be a lot of cards which will ruin it. And they seem to have used a lot of the comentary from last year. It isn't as bad as PES comentary but if you played 08 alot your be familliar with it.

Eurogamer have their reveiw up now too, they gave it an 8/10 and pretty much say it is the best football game they have played. Too many magazines/websites hand out 10/10 scores these days so it is good at least one place tells it like it is.

Well i would say play the demo first. It is a lot different to 08 but has a lot of the same attributes i.e hard to score,frustratingly annoying when you mess up (it is not like PES where you press shoot and the ball goes toward the goal automatically so you make a lot of human errors) etc..

Some people will hate the fact it is not easy, you can't get the ball and make a 100yrd mazzy run from your box to the other without getting tackled. It is more like real football in that it is about bursts of play. You could play **** for 89mins but in that 90th min you could put together a few good passes and get the space to get a clear shot on goal. This is i think a big reason on why people used to prefer Pro Evo is that you would have like 15+ shots on goal in a match. In Fifa 09 unless your very good your be lucky to have 10 shots the whole game. Which means it is important you take those chances when they come, which again is more like real football. So i like the game but i could easily see why some would dislike it as it has a steep learning curve, it takes time to learn it, some prefer the jump straight in and be a god straight away games, this is not one of those. Try the demo for each. If you like that buy it :)

Have to remember the biased levels. Right now i can't name many if any reserve players from the other CCC teams who are now playing first team this year. Statisticly we are 3 points from the drop zone and have lost what 5 of our games? All the players are un-proven and more importantly unknown. If they told you to rate the players at the end of last season chances are you would not have rated them that high or maybe not knew them at all. I had never heard of Schneiderlin then, nor Pekhart etc.. can only rate on what you see and majority of the games they have been poor. Lallana has done well but he still has missed a lot of shots and not scored many etc.. seeing as most good prem players are rated around 80 i think 50+ is about right. We are a world away from that quality. So far away we got beat 1-3 by Rotheram :(

What do you expect though, all these players have only now played a handful of Championship games. Once the update comes out in February I'm sure a lot of the stats will get improved.

I've not found it a problem though Robertson is rated 52 but he's my top goal scorer I keep smashing them in with him. Jake Thomson is also really fast so handy playing him despite his low rating, he actually won me a pen last game.

Am absolutely loving the game at the moment can't really fault it to be honest.
Love the new headering system and the fact that its a lot harder to score.

Only quivell is that im finding it too easy on Semi-Pro but too hard on Professional mode.After about 12 games in 4th in the league. Can't get off the game at the moment. The Formation im playing at the moment is a 4-3-3 like this....

Davis

Thomas.Perry.Svennson.Surman

Wotton.Euell.Skacel

BWP Pekhart John

Have also noticed that Pekhart is shiiiiiiitHHOOOTT. Can't stop scoring for me.

I'm quite enjoying it. I chose to be Man U because of my gaming insecurities. Much better than Fifa 08...

Lost 2-0 online to Bayern Munich the German bastard.

But losing is my bag so I like it.

Anyone else finding it incredibly hard to have a shot on target from any sort of distance? I'm not on about scoring 30 yard screamers all the time, as was so easy to do on the last version, but I must be doing something wrong to not even be hitting the target!

Has anyone else tried 10 v 10 yet? I may have just been unlucky with the people I was put with, but it was incredibly frustrating. No matter what part of the pitch or their situation at least four people refused to pass, which ruins it for everyone else. I got so annoyed I ended up being sent off in about the 50th minute, in truth I was trying to destroy a guy on my team, but I accidentally took out their player too.

Trying to foul your team mate is admirable. Not like running with the ball, which is bang out of order.

I said on another thread this is what whould happen. Everyone wanting to be involved all the time. Might get myself a LIVE subscription just to have a go at scoring 5+ own goals in a game.

Nope I've scored some superb long range efforts so far, a 30 yarder with Schneiderlin the other day. But with the EAFootballWorld site being crap I can't upload replays. :(

Was the same with 5v5 last year, you really need to be play it with people you know and not randomers otherwise it's crap. Fifa clubs is the way to go, played a lot of that last night so awesome.

If your playing against random people in 10vs10 and they play like jerks on purpose just remember the persons tag and hit avoid player option, never play against that person again. You will find idiots in every walk of life especially online. After awhile these idiots will get bored and be on so many peoples avoid lists they won't play much, leaving the normal people who want to play.

Playing it on Pro and think it's easily the best football game I have played. John is my top scorer by some distance. Hopefully as others have said the stats will go up for a few of our players when the next update comes out.

Q: Can you edit the players appearances? I haven't had fifa since.... '05?? but i love my editing etc. on pro evo (there is always a lot to do!)

The reason I ask is...basically if the players proper face isn't on the game they tend to look pretty ****e in terms of appearance....I seem to remember Anders Svensson having black hair!!

Was wondering the same thing actually.

I found it a bit annoying that my new striker was automatically given the number 2 shirt!

superstevesaints
07-10-2008, 10:08 AM
EA have taken that out for this years one. as its too expensive for them to maintain in each version of the game.

So no pre-season friendlies and no shirt number changing!

:(

And if anyone wants to play me (ps3) my PSN is sgarley

Cheers!

Lets hope so anyway.

I know it's nothing major but I do find it really quite frustrating.

Having Stewart Downing at 2 and David Wheater at 9 just doesn't look right to me!

Having said that mind, it's the only complaint I have about the game, as other than that it's pretty flawless.

Release the L stick?? thats ********, you need the l stick to direct your shots to corners, just dont hold it to far or for to long.
secondly dont be afraid to have a pop from anywhere.

Im more than up for joining a team, probably got a couple of you on here anyway PSN is proevosaints

Im probably best at either CF Or CB
