First images of 2006 FIFA World Cup

First images of 2006 FIFA World Cup

What's better coming back from sunny Oman, than finding a (quite) new bunch of 2006 FIFA World Cup images? I've enjoyed Fifa 06 RTWC, even though the lack of features is a shame. EA seems to have dropped some of the creepy skin textures, and looks to be aiming for a more realistic look.

That looks quite impressive considering how many people are on the field.

still to crapy. guess it's the same engine as RTWC, just some minor tweaks. Still miles from NBA Live 06.

Well better hopes in FIFA 2007

Looks good, I'd be surprised if Winning Eleven looked better (though it will play better without doubt)

The grass is just a big blur! And why a WC game? Couldn't they've just implemented that in the RTWC game? This should mean that we'll be seeing 3 FIFA games total this year? Or was RTWC released last year?

Anyway, I am waiting for Pro Evolution Soccer. The best football game that has been released. Hope they got something nice coming up for the xbox360!

Releasing a WC game in November wouldn't be smart, as the official line-ups for the teams haven't been announced back then. RTWC was released at the X360 launch.
Winning Eleven/PES will this year be a little late. They are always released in October in Europe, but all versions will probably be released in November/December this year.

Yeh the skin looks a lot less 'undead' but the figure still have that weird semi-solid fibre-glass shorts thing going on.

Why are companies so scared of showing in game screens? "Oh wow, some stills of cut-scenes/replays, how awesome".

Looks awful, just look at the crowd, they don't even have any faces.

So fifty quid for a game that looks crap, will most probably play crap, and you'll only be able to play the world cup, no thanks!

the graffics looks brilliant but what about the game.

I´m worry about the graffics, coz i see them even nicer now, but does it mean that the forgot again to make it a little bit playable?
I´m not a fanatic of fifa neither pes, but what the hell are developers doing with fifa.
I think they have one more chance to do it right with 2007 coz if they don´t, the next pes6 gonna kick some ass.
Will see with this fwc but i don´t think in 4 month the can rebuilt the other one.

Hmmm, can anyone say "Same Game, Different Name" ?? just another way for the money grabbing dev's at EA to grab some more cash.
Commented on 2006-03-03 14:46:55
Great license EA.
Dogmeat gameplay.

Sure, but why even release i RTWC in the first place? I mean come on, do people acctually buy that? I personally think they would benefit more if they would release the whole game with the WC as an option when they are aware of which teams made it all the way. Just a RTWC/WC game is the most boring thing to release as a soccer game.

But that's just what i think, i guess people buy it cause they keep on releasing the stuff. :P

damn awsome is all i say football is looking nice

LOL, will cost $60? Umm why can't they just have a downloadable upgrade patch, which is what the Marketplace is for. I'm sure it won't be more than 1GB. Classic EA move.
Commented on 2006-03-03 16:08:32
FIFA XX never again. Unless they improve the Gameplay! but i dont think they will...
I want PES 6 (winning eleven) for XBOX 360, the one and only good football game.

The crowd's almost as diversified (Red, blue, green or yellow) than in Love Football! Is that always the same in soccer game?
