However, PES did have diving and they've done it pretty well, with only a slight chance on success, depending on the exact angle of the referee and such. If you fail, you get a card. Nice balance between risk and reward.

I'm pretty sure one of the older games, maybe '07 on original Xbox, had the ability to dive. I can also remember that '07 on xbox was far superior to '07 on 360.

I remember This Is Football having the ability to dive, that's about it.

So did PES at one stage.

Frankly its a rubbish feature.

I'd love diving, but obvioously it should be kept off during MP matches.

But yeah put diving in FIFA!!!
