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.

fifa's physix or lack there of makes me like Pro evo for gameplay but fifa has better atmosphere

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.

    asdfg @droezelke: If you get the chance you should try Vive in higher framerate and resolution. Could be the low res of the PSVR that mess you up. (24 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GrimThorne: not true. I get car sick. I don't get VR sick. But it's kind of the opposite of car sickenss in terms of inner ear movement and perception of movement. (51 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I guess they felt like making it slower on account of the general lack of stuff to actually unlock. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And yea progression is pretty weird. You have to level up your class rank to unlock guns for that class with warbonds that you earn every soldier (not class) level. (1 Hour ago)

    Moonwalker Oh stupid me, that's on the top left. (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker One thing is unclear to me though. How do I see my progression? Just now I was promoted and received 90 cards, not enough for a new weapon. How exactly does this work? (2 Hours ago)
