Just 6 months to go until FIFA 13 will be upon us and FSB discuss the changes to gameplay they'd like to see in their FIFA 13 wishlist.
Great list. I would add; more individuality for players AND teams, more noticeable difference in ability, more realistic transfers in Career mode and just an improvement to that mode overall, a tall player to be more dominant in the air, better movement in the box, fix it where attacking players react after a goalie parries a ball instead of moving away from the ball. Now this is the main one for me, there is form indicators in PES that determines if a player plays well our not, it works very well and can determine how well your team will play. In FIFA your team either plays well or dont, the whole team not just individual players but not only that, the AI is a lot better and sharper and get a hell of a lot of luck. You just know this is the case sometime and that its going be very very hard to win. I hate this, it takes it out of your control and the AI is taking too much control.
1: less menus and screens to click through. It takes ages between starting up the game and finally playing a match. It's ridiculous. Why do I have to verify that I want 'english' EVERYTIME I START THE GAME!?!? 2: I've been repeating this request for years now, but the replays suck. They're too short, you can only upload about 5 of them to the crappy EA website, you save them as videofiles instead of actual replays where you can watch them from all angles, even when you save them to your own HDD, and in-game the replays suck as well. Pro Evo does this aspect better, and has done it better for years! (apart from Pro Evo 6, which curiously had no 'save replays' function....(!) ) 3: It needs to get a proper player editor. Tiger Woods 2005 had a great gameface-editor, yet FIFA still sucks when it comes to creating a player, and you can't even edit the existing players, while many of them look horrible compared to their real-life counterparts. It's unacceptable. 4: Instead of just showing the stadiums, EA might want to consider also showing a bit more of the surroundings before a match, so the area/city in which the stadium is situated. Also, it all needs to be a whole lot more lifely, with people around the pitch moving around, lights in the crowd, toiletpaper rolls being thrown on the pitch, the field getting damages from slidings, etc etc etc. There has been very little improvements in those areas for the last 3-4 years. 5: Finally, I feel you should get an in-game editor for you to have your own start-screen. Now you look at a shooting Rooney every time, but why not include a photomode, different backgrounds, all the player models, etc etc etc, and just being able to make your own 'shots' of the player you like (also edited players so they're as lifelike as possible), and you could use those as your start-screen, and upload them to the crappy EA FIFA site. That would mean that if a friend comes over he sees a completely different FIFA environment on my screen, than he does on his. You could even go as far as giving players the freedom to also change in-game fonts and such.
The loading times on PS3 are way too long. It takes like 5 minutes to get from the start screen to the pitch.
