EA Sports is hard at work on FIFA 12, and has detailed some of the improvements you can expect to see when the game releases later this year.
Why not support fifa 11 and add in the improvements? oh wait this is EA lol.
I want different commentators for different matches. Plus, how come they have NO enthusiasm in their commentating? They commentate as if they just lost their life savings in Vegas!! And the online needs a complete overhaul! It's impossible to play online, even if there are 2 PS3's in one house!
whats the problem online? i and my mates find it easy to play most nights,
... I liked WC2010 a whole lot better, gameplay-wise. Somehow, the changes in gameplay in FIFA11 just made the game a whole lot more frustrating. Shooting from distance was perfect in WC2010, and is pretty much impossible in FIFA11 now, with players even stopping halfway through their run-up to the shot... Also the AI is screwed up somehow: break away with a winger on the ball and a striker, and the strikers doesn't move to the open space, yet comes into the ball, which is just beyond ridiculous. It's still a good game, but the changes in gameplay and AI just made it a whole lot more frustrating, less fun to play, and while I would score in many different ways in WC2010 (long distance, 1-on-1 with the keeper, chips, wing-play, combinations, etc etc...), it seems like in FIFA2011 you pretty much mostly score through a 1-2 over the top, or by a cross from the wing that gets headed in... which becomes pretty boring quickly.
@Yi-Long true Long Distance (Screamer) doesn't come very often as you would wanted, I score one screamer like from 25 yard, but very unlikely that I will score again, maybe a few more months before I did again
That's why I play with spanish commentary :D
the only person from chelsea that I believe ive scored from 25 + yards out was with lampard. I even scored a 40 yard free kick against arsenal with him. I have a video that would of proved it but ea fucked up the replay I uploaded...
I scored a free-kick last night from 42 yards...HAHAHAAH.... How about that?? I was using Alves. The trick to shooting long distances is that you should really consider using the Finesse shot. I know, I know. It doesn't look as good but still, a goal from long distance is a goal from long distance, right? Anyway, I played Chelsea using Barca last night and Pique scored a finesse shot from 25 yards. It was beautiful in my eyes! Barca went on to win the game 9-0. :P Lucky for me the person I was facing was a 12 year old. If the guy was 13-30, he would have quit when it was 4-0... Do you people have my problem too? Ragequitting suckssssssssssssss!!!!!!!
Yh, lol. It's basically the same thing as COD, Madden etc. EA and Activsion r the worst publishers ever. I hate EA more though. The only thing they have better than Activsion is their games and devs, but other than that, they're just as money-hungry as Activision.
they could patch them improvements into fifa11, we need to stop buying these yearly updates otherwise were going to get mediocor footy games for a long time to come. the last time i enjoyed a footy game was last gen
Pro Evo still awesome to play, they got a better youth system in the game
EA & Activision Are The Same At Milking Stuff
Yep EA is known to shutdown server of multiplayer games a year or so after release, just so they can force the user base to buy the next game. Mean while we have other developers like Valve, who keep supporting their games 10years after release. The little differences EA does offer in their Sports games are hardly worth a purchase. Heres something different i have been doing with Fifa 11 though: http://www.youtube.com/watc... Games running on 3 screens via Nvidia surround (or eyefinity), seeing the entire field is simply epic.
Set pieces in a sports game? It must have a campaign then...?
Set pieces in football: Free-kicks, corners etc.
Haha you actually expected EA to actually put in some work into their next Fifa lol. About the only time they will do that is once they have milked this engine dry. Expect any improvements if at all when a fresh game is released maybe by 2015.
Hahahahaha, Active Reload, that's the funniest thing I've read in a long long time on this site. Thank you
On the PS3 version at least, how about proper custom soundtracks & with a menu that works? That "feature" was so badly made it's unbelievable. I was looking forward to hearing music over the game whilst playing but instead we get some crappy background style effect. Don't even get me started on the menu for it either.. & another thing, why is it when you try to find an online game & the old "this session has ended" thing comes up are you brought back to MAIN menu?! I wanted to play online ffs, at least bring me back to the online menu.
They dont really care what you think, since they have millions buying the same rehashed stuff every year. Why make an improvement when people will willingly pay 60usd for a roaster update every year?
I like what they did with the custom music on the PS3 version because you can hear the commentator and also the music like its playing in the stadium :-)
EA is seriously milking the sports genre as there is no competition and people around the world got a habit of buying those each year like CoD.
pro evo is their only kind of competition in the football genre, I rememeber back when pes was the better of the two
will it ever end ?
Think I will pass on this one =)
Don't expect great improvements on yearly updates, for if EA did actually do some work they'd be scratching heads on what to do for the following year. Idiots will continue to buy Fifa year in year out
Is the same with all these games. The kits and players transfer and a couple of gameplay tweaks warrants another £40 each year. They could quite easily release a patch but hey it's a business and money makes the world go round.
can't pass up on fifa really.. if they released a fifa 11.5 id buy it.
I hope they have a new freaking engine, they've had the same one for like 2-3 years now, I have not seen improvement in graphics...
They don't need a new engine when they haven't even taken the current one to it's full potential yet. It can still improve vastly. Agree, they need to overhaul the visuals to freshen it up.
Some right moaning twats commenting here. As a former PES fan, I'm thankful that EA got their act together and actually sorted out the Fifa series, otherwise I'd be stuck with only one viable option to buy, which would be the now stagnant and ridiculously outdated PES series. Slight, yearly improvements to a football engine are nothing new, so those bitching about it are looking like bitter muppets. Konami did it yearly, and it was the slight tweaks and improvements that made it feel like a totally new experience and worth the buy. Ditto with Fifa over the past few versions. They've now improved it to the point where it's almost nearing footballing perfection; as good as it's ever gotten. I like how they are talking about improving AI, because that is where the series is lacking, and it's probably the only place where it's lacking, because everything else is spot on. If EA improve the graphics engine, add the real-time physics that is in the NHL, tweak the other elements (control, personallity etc) and give the AI a massive revamp, then it's day one for me again. Those improvements should take the series to new lofty hights which I doubt Konami will even get close to, this gen or the next. Like most Japanese companies this gen, they are lacking.
I completely disagree, PES 2011 was much improved upon PES 2010 and is a more exciting game than FIFA. FIFA has improved, but it still feels scripted to a degree, PES on the other hand reflects the unpredictable nature of the real thing.
i think 2010 was the year i skipped buying a football game. i'll buy it this year and it's gonna be PES 12. konami nearly nailed it right. they've finally made the game like Demon's Souls. no more 'tap tap tap and tap' to get the score. and i also agree they fcked it up real bad before that.
it seems with every iteration they keep quoting the same upgrades better AI and control, they have been saying this since fifa 94 and it still hasnt progressed that much just better graphics.
PES 2011 sucks. I'm so pissed off of my decision to buy it! I can shoot from long range in that stupid game! My favourite is still PES2009... Long range screamers are easy in that game...
