EA just released the demo of Euro 2008 on Xbox Live Marketplace, and here is an early video of it. As a PES addict, I am surprised how much EA has revolutionized their Fifa series. Players do realistic runs and there are a lot of things that is done better here than in Konami's games. I am in a hurry to right now so you will only see some of the goals from my first playthroughs, where the last one is from the Be a Pro mode.
The controls can feel really sluggish at first, as you really feel every step the controlled player takes. Turning around and changing direction can feel really slow sometimes, but this is something you will get used too - it's just the way the controls work in Fifa. Some would say that making mistakes as a goalkeeper, like on one of the goals (not the first, that was on me), is realistic - but sometimes they just stand on the line and do nothing, even though there's a high ball landing two meters in front of them.
If you were angry to see every shot hitting the 20th row in PES when you first played it, be ready for some irritating moments at first in this game - you really, really have to be light on the buttons, as some balls just fly straight up into the stands even though you press the button really fast. This while standing faced towards the goal without anyone near.
The Be A Pro mode lets you pick one player to control, while the AI controls the rest of your team. You can shout for a pass and you are, in one way or another, always involved in the play. It works good and has been pretty fun to play so far.
@Tiz: Yeah.. it keeps track of the number of times anything is launched and how much you've played it. Apparently the 3DS activity log is better, but I thought i was a nice feature anyhow. (2 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX: Is that for each game? If so, then I am happy. Can't wait to buy a WiiU this fall. (2 Hours ago)
@Tiz: The WiiU has a great timer/log built into the OS. (2 Hours ago)
@Tiz: i have decent pc too, so if it wasn't for Bloodborne i wouldn't even think about console. :) Also the indie support that both companies promised, year later we still have yet to see it... (2 Hours ago)
Also, WiiU and Bayonetta 2, the only thing I hope they've done with Bayonetta 2 is increase the amount of hours played shown on your save file. People need to know how many hours I've put into it. (2 Hours ago)
@Seth: Last gen still has a lot of life in it. So you are good. I was considering getting Destiny, but I just tried Diablo 3 demo and I'm actually enjoying it far more than the Destiny Beta. (2 Hours ago)
@Tiz: i'm hoarding up these xbone games (thanks xbox.com), not that will be buying the console anytime soon tho. :p (2 Hours ago)
