Fifa World Cup for noobs

Fifa World Cup for noobs

EA released another tutorial video for 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa showing the two button control feature that will be available for the least gifted of us. After all, why not. You should also know that a demo of the game will be available as soon as tomorrow on Xbox Live and PSN and that it will feature Italy and Spain.

Pretty useless imo

Why would you want to go back to 2001 where you only needed 2 buttons the whole game long. This is pretty useless for most players, and I don't think they will attract new players with this.

I can't wait till we can get the 1-button control. Press X and the AI will analyze whether to pass OR shoot OR change player. Good times ahead.

I take that back. I can't wait till FIFA is a button-pressing-sequence game.

It is but you have to look for it in the sport section.

So FIFA 11 a few months later? Ridiculous if so.

Well I've played the demo a bit now:

Hmm some good, some bad:

The Bad:
Pausing stops the current line of commentary (tiny annoyance but annoyance all the same), worst thing is match highlights are easily as bad as Fifa10, I just won 3-0 with a number of shots on target and the post match highlights showed just two goals nothing else, pathetic.

The Good:
Loving the post match stat screens (it says man of the match but you can view that screen for every player by pressing LT/RT).

finally we can see stats for all players again as with Fifa08.

Was booked for a foul I made about 10-15 mins before the play was stopped and it still "remembered" the foul and showed me a highlight of it.

As for the gameplay it's hard to tell in stupid 2x2min halves, passing on semi seems less accurate but too short to tell.

I'm surprised you haven't noticed the difference in gameplay, because after about 10 seconds playing it I can see that it's a far cry from FIFA 10. Seriously. Much tighter controls, hugely improved responsiveness, better animations, more freedom and greater presentation.

I might actually have to get this now.

the players look ALOT better.. finally lost the vaseline look to them. Although i would of liked England on there to see if it passess the Rooney test.

Overall it looks abit crisper.. though that engine still struggles with framerate issues.

Player stats page is alot better.

There seemed to be a few animation issues in the 2 games i just played. I also ended on a draw for both game's and the commentry messed up at the end of one claiming a loss. It also felt the same as fifa 10 to me.. i didnt find any "hugely improved responsiveness".. fifa 10 wasnt broke

This just makes me think how incredible FIFA 11 will be, as this seems so much better than FIFA 10 based on the few matches I've played.

One thing I love is the dynamic camera angle when you score and celebrate afterwards. I've always loved how you could pull off your own celebration, but it always lacked atmosphere. Not anymore.

fifa 10 wasnt broke
No it wasn't, but it also wasn't perfect. This refines it to the degree that there's a clear difference.

Just playing the demo first time, it is playing GREAT and it looks a lot better, faces reminds me of PES 10 quality.
