SINCE PES 06, IS THE BEST SOCCER GAME EVER!!
on 3 December 2010
I'm 40 y.o, and since i was a kid that i play footy games. I still remember when i played Match Day 2 for the first time, i got amazed with this ZX Spectrum game.
After this game i've played few footy games because i always was a first person shot player, in spite i love football, soccer games on pc were very bored to play and the realism was not the better i was waiting for. Pro Sensible Soccer, Fifa 99, PES 3 and PES 6 (specially this last one) were the best footy games that i have played in the last 15 years. With PES 6, i wasted more than 10 hours per week playing it online with my friends, and after this game i really got disappointed with the next ones (PES 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011) and Fifa (2007,2008, 2009, 2010). I always prefered PES because Fifa games had horrible movements and the players were very small in comparison with the field. Sometimes it seemed a soccer game of dwarves ...
Some weeks ago i've bought PES 2011 and I got disappointed with the game, specially with ball control and lags during online matchs. A friend of mine (we spent lots of hours playing PES6 online) told me great things about the FIFA 11 and I decided to try it...
Fantastic ball control, dribbling perfect, good positioning of the opponent on the pitch that make you have to think twice before continuing on, , slender system of shots, passes and crosses, superb graphics (no more dwarves ...), large and pretty stadiums, and a good atmosphere competition even when we are tired we can do with one more game to play.
In FIFA 11 you can not think you're the Ronaldo or Messi of your street, because if you keep dribbling around, your risk of losing the ball is high, so you'll have to opt for collective play if you want to reach the net with more facilities and opportunities of scoring a goal. Of course you also can do some dribbling to the audience, especially if you're not playing in the highest category (professional or as a veteran).
The only thing I didn't like in this game was the positional side of the players. In games like Pro Evo. Soccer you have a system where you can manually drag a player to a specified position in the field. In FIFA you can only choose squad systems (4-4-2, 4-3-3, 4-1-2-1-2 ...), but even with this fail, I say that the game is terrific!!!
Even the online mode is terrific, with no lags (like we ALWAYS have in P.E.Soccer games...).
My sincere congratulations to the producers and directors of this game! They gained a new fan!
