Love Football video

Love Football video

Namco released this new video of Love Football showcasing some of the player animations, quite nicely done I have to say. Will this be enough to forget about the very average, to say the least, graphics?

ok the amination is alright, but i don't think that'll be enough to save this game. Why dont they take a page out of FCK book and hold off a while. Because these games arn't representing the 360's potential and is probably pushing away the already limited potential buyers for the 360.

Hey, graphics aren't everything right? This could be a good game afterall. Of course I haven't purchased a football game (soccer, here in the states) since the days of sega Genesis. Don't think this will change my mind.

I think come release they will improve the graphics they wont in their right mind put out a piece of crap atleast I don't think they would right???

Don't think this game will make it to europe. We have decent footie games like Fifa and Pro evo, who in the right mind would buy a game called love football. Japan is full of nutty fanatics that love western things like david beckam, and michael jackson. This is a game to simply please those nuts.

The lateral movement off the ball is really nice but the shot that scores at the end looks awful. Oh well.

I don't know how anyone of you can comment about the graphics in that game. The video quality is so bad that you can't see any detail in it. Fifa doesn't look any better with its retarded character models and environment.

Chances are this game won't leave Japan considering the amount of bashing it gets outside. I'm not surprised if Namco just cancels it and sends it off to the PS3 where there will be mroe fans willing to play a game not for its graphics.

i dont care about the graphics but from the last video trust me the ai is terrible the players on the other team would just stare at you when you had the ball and watch you go past

Are you reading the same sites that I am? PS3 fanatics are using this as an example of Namco hating the 360!

Looking at the video, graphics appears to be on par if not better than Fifa 06. We could use another soccer game to spice up the competition.

lol if that game goes to the PS3 they will love it! You know how fickle those fanatics are They will probably say "OMG Love Football just went to the PS3! XBOX 360 suxxors since it can't handle it!" That or some lame crap.

the graphics in this game will probably be ironed out alot before release. while i doubt this game will be great, i think the direction the team is headed is very needed.

Looks ok so far

It must be me, but isn't this a new sort of football game?
This is the first football game I have seen that you play with only one character...
Or am I wrong?
Anyway, I think it will either be a huge succes, or a huge flop ...

I think there is something like a 'story' in this game. It reminds me of that football anime.

The game may be character centric. Meaning your players have a story / personality. They're not just some drones in the field. But I'm speculating based on some screenshots I've seen earlier for this game.

You gotta love "GOAL!" by Jalico. That was the best football game ever.

Have to say the video makes the game look better, but still poor for this system, and even the old Xbox.

I mean check out the nets. Damn things look like they are those plastic nets/fences you see at construction sites, shiny plastic orange fences that are usually rolled around a stick at one end, couldnt keep a toddler out of anything.
