Fifa 13 in slow motion

Fifa 13 in slow motion

Less than a week before the official release of FIFA 13, we had a sudden urge to show how great the game looks on PC, especially during replays. As you can see, those who consider EA's promotional images are nothing but bullshots will be unable to say so for a little while. This short extract was captured with the demo version of the game, so if you also have a few nice replays of the trial version to show, feel free to post them in the comments.

Lescott. No wonder it wasn't a goal.

It is a shame they don't use the 3D grass all the time, not only during close-ups in replays. I remember the first FIFA on the 360, which had very long 3D grass all the time. The frame rate wasn't always good but it was decent nonetheless. So all these years later, why isn't it now possible to do the same but with better frame rate?

Def FIFA.. I think PES is rubbish, they completely screwed up the decent parts in the demo.

PES is back, baby! Back to 2003! Yep, they should just call it PES: Back to the Future edition, because that's exactly what it feels like and that is just not good enough by today's standards. Get Fifa instead.

Well if only they could get rid of the "stiffness" from PES it could be better then fifa.

Lol. PES is the one with crap physics, not FIFA.

Agreed with blmbox. Lack of physics is def. in PES, not FIFA.. It is really strange to see people still prefer PES over FIFA. I was an absolute big PES fan but since the 360 and PS3 there is no denying that this game is just horribly gone wrong.

One thing I have noticed is how the rivalry between the two has involved a couple of cheeky jabs this year, most notably from EA:

- PES has Ronaldo, the second best player in the world, on the cover; EA goes for Messi, former PES cover star and the best player in the world.
- Included on the FIFA 13 soundtrack is Kasabian's 'Club Foot', which is by no means a recent track. In fact in football terms it's most famous for being on the PES 5 soundtrack, which many (including myself) consider the greatest PES of all time.

I used to say 'greatest football game of all time' when referring to PES 5, but I think the latest FIFA titles may have just edged it. Anyway, I thought it was a little bit of cheeky gamesmanship on EA's part. I like it.

^^ Suttle unlike Konami's obnoxious Jon Murphy with his constant pops/rants at EA/Fifa.

Exactly, at least EA's is a bit tongue in cheek and more like banter.

Jon Murphy just comes across as a bit jealous and bitter.

Correct. It's this thing the PES fanboys have: they call it "inertia" or my personal favourite "foot planting" or in this case, physics. What it actually is with PES is the illusion of gravity or weight caused by robotic animations and stiff, archaic controls. Simple as that, really.

What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The BF1 interface is literally the same thing. The only difference is you load a huge client to reach the UI instead of clicking on a bookmark. Guess which one is faster? (14 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And the like.. primary complaint that people had about Battlelog on PC was the plugin. It doesn't use a plugin anymore. (14 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I like being able to take stock of my favorites in a manner of seconds. And I don't need to load the client until I find a game I want to play. (14 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yea, really. It's much faster than loading a beast of a client just to look at a server browser or join a queue. Why would I want to waste time and resources before I actually need to *play*? (14 Hours ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: Really? I was never a fan of launching the game through a web browser. The stats and everything else i was okay with. (14 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Why do I want to load a huge game client just to check my favorites? Just to wait in queue? It doesn't make sense. (15 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'm scared of the new Battlefield UI. I think Battlelog works pretty great on PC and I'm worried that it'll have a negative impact on the population. (15 Hours ago)
