Please tell me the graphics are better, or at least the
same as FIFA 99!
Itís a beautiful, beautiful game.
That's my first goal!
a nutshell, the graphics are as good as ever. Player
animations are lifelike, courtesy of a motion captured
Sol Campbell. Players fall over differently. The heavier
the tackle, the more exaggerated the fall. Heading and
jostling look great as well. You can see your player
use his arm to keep the defender at bay and your defender
climbing on the back of the opposing striker to head
the ball clear. Goalie movement is also excellent. In
the game, I swear I saw David James miss-time his jump
trying to clear a simple cross from the flank, exactly
like in a match between Liverpool and Man Utd last season!
Look out for my ball!
are recreated faithfully though every pitch looks and plays
about the same size. Crowd animation has been added to further
enhance the atmosphere. Weather effects are realistic and
pitches look better than ever.
mention that you can now choose the game resolution? Yeah
baby, crank it up to 1024 by 768 and use Triple Buffering if
your 3D Accelerator allows it! No more 640 by 480 for me!
gripe here is that the players are skinny and big headed,
almost alien-like. Just take a look at the screenshots and youíll
see what I mean. Though a minor point, Iím hoping that one
day the FIFA series would finally use the real team kits. FA
Premier League Stars looks better because of this! I mean, if
EA Sports can do it with the NBA, lets hope they tie something
up with FIFA!
Players are too skinny!
Should I get the game?
