Looks quite cool. I really liked the 'Pro' camera angle in the demo.

Looks good, hope they add a lot more teams and stuff this year, last years game was ok but felt like a tech demo because it lacked so much content on 360.

It looks pretty cool, but apparently to can't play a full season like it, just one or two training-style games. :/

This one player plays one player thing has been done before, with mixed results.

I played the demo and while it still seems alright some things annoy me.

In the 10 times I played the demo (5 full matches) I scored 0 times. The opposition can get the ball off you no matter what if you try and shield it they tackle you. Yet if they run at you, you can press the tackle button til your blue in the face and even if you crowd them with 3 players they find away out.

I gave away a penalty for nudging someone in a header (no idea how) I dove the right way but the goal still went in. Which was really annoying.

It still passes to the wrong person sometimes even though you are cleary pointing in the correct direction. The trick system is pointless as you don't get enough time to execute any of them and when you do you still get tackled.

No matter what you do to the other players a free kick is always awarded every 5 seconds. I never touch the slide button in fifa unless its necessary but I still give away loads of fouls for nothing. Shoulder to shoulder stuff.

Cisse is not an amazing player and yet somehow he can tackle all of my team take a few of them on go round my goal keeper and score. I played fifa on semi pro and won lots of games quite easily against better sides than say that red bull one.

It just feels really alien and the other team will just pass for ages and no matter what you cant get the ball off them without giving a foul away.

    rayy @KORNdog: TW3 can't be a Skyring well done because W3 is not trying to be Skyrin. Different games and different type of RPG I think. You could say one more fun quest than the other though. (45 minutes ago)

    crookedmind ... I can't even think of what they want. Maybe expecting CoH or AoE or even a Starcraft like game, but it's not even trying to be a strategy game like that. (8 Hours ago)
  • crookedmind
    crookedmind @rayy: I think so. If I hit on something later in the game that I haven't gotten to yet I'll let you know, but so far I don't see any control flaws. (8 Hours ago)
  • crookedmind
    crookedmind If you took the sword work and handling from Witcher and put it in Skyrim, you have the ultimate game in that genre. Mods made Skyrim in my opinion; vanilla was stunted outside of stealth backstabbery (8 Hours ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: Both games in my eyes had spotty combat. I played W3 for its story and life. As for Skyrim, the vanilla version of the game felt bland without the mods. (10 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And I think the gameplay that is there is pretty janky and pretty shallow. (11 Hours ago)
