It turned out better than I thought it would - the gameplay is intuitive and feels right,although shooting is a bit off key. There is much reliance on the 'one touch' control which works well if you use it right. Attacking can be difficult,as the defences seem to work very well,and breaking away from a defender is very difficult.
Commentary is very good,and obviously,all the licences are here. The graphics are fairly good,but figures at the far side of the pitch seem particularly small despite maxing out on the camera zoom.
Overall,it's a fairly good purchase if you want a football game now for the PSP,but really I'd recommend this as a teaser before the mighty Pro Evo enters the PSP stage in November - if it plays and looks like the PS2 version,then it will definitely rule the roost!
I think I may have to take it back to the shop as the magnifying glass needed to play this game wasn't included with the game!?!?...(oh you don't get one!?!?)
The players are sooooo small and the ball...well about half the size of a pin head!
Totally impossible to track when in goalmouth action, i find my eyes frantically searching the screen mid game because I'm not sure which player is running with the ball!! hopeless!!
Ok maybe its me....I can hear all those FIFA geeks up in arms at my comments!!...but its certainly not well designed!
And to top it all off I've played for about 2 hours now and haven't managed to score one single goal!!! (mainly because I can't see the ball!)
Here's hoping Pro Evolution doesn't need a microscope to view the action!!
For starters the ball is impossible to see, especially when its yellow. It is ridiculously hard to get the ball off the opposition even on the easiest difficulty level. Far too often you will find yourself running after them in circles, often back to their own goal line. It's like they have an invisible shield around them and no matter what you do you can't get near the ball, yet they will take the ball off you with ease.
The intelligence of the players is laughable. Try passing to a forward running at goal and the computer passes it back to a defender, or worse still, the other team. The through ball button might aswell not be there as the results are disastrous. A through ball will either go out of play or straight to the other team. Watching the actions of the other team when they get the ball is often laughable.
There is a horrendous delay between you pressing a button and the player kicking the ball. Hit the pass button and by time your player has kicked it the ball has been taken off him. When you successfully kick the ball the other players seem to grow huge limbs and block nearly every shot and too many passes.
Finally it's too hard to score. If you get past the blockade of defenders and get a shot in that isn't blocked, either the goalkeeper catches the ball or it goes miles wide. Pure luck. Oh, and the free kicks are a joke too.
Save your money, get anything else, unless you're a die hard fifa fan.
Well after regular playing i can say that the graphics are great, and the game play is excellent- if you have bad eye sight then its tough luck really - it is easy to follow, but i have yet to find aftertouch on free kicks (if there is any function).
The players look great, commentry is good, and the stadiums are accurate, and the sound tracks aren't bad either.
You can transfer all your favourite players into your team without a transfer fee (rooney and shevchenko as Nott'm Forest strikers! lol)
The career mode does only last 1 season though and the reward points are not very rewarding for the hard work.
The juggling mode is a nice little addition to the game & uses the full use of the width of the psp screen to it's advanage.
Overall it is a great game but there is plenty of room for improvement.
Lets hope we can get a propper management mode and possibly a create a player mode in future versions.
Nice work though
The one major drawback is that I have real difficulty in actually seeing the ball. OK - i'm 36, perhaps my eyesight isn't quite as great as it used to be, but on my last visit, the optician told me I had perfect 20-20 vision! The fact is that the ball is very small, and also very yellow - a combination which creates "challanges" from time to time during gameplay and which ultimately lets the game down. I can't say particularly that this is a FIFA problem or just a PSP footie game problem, but it is a bit of a pain.
Perhaps it's time for my eyes to be tested again....!
