More images from Fifa World Cup 2006

EA did a breakthrough today and finally released the first (?) FIFA World Cup 2006 gameplay image with actual HUD. They also released a big bunch of images from the Xbox 360, PS2 and Xbox versions.

These players look a little undead... maybe it's the jet lag. Or then EA is making a bold prediction that heavy eyeliner will be the fashion statement of 2006 among football players.

Are they planning on releasing a demo? I could do with a laugh.

my god, they are all so gormless.

Yea they really look exactly the same. The Xbox version has super blurry textures, aliasing probs, really low polygon models, no advanced lighting, and the crowds look horrible. The 360 version doesn't look all that, but to say they look exactly the same is just stupid.

What's wrong with Xbox image number eight? That is a decent first generation Dreamcast screenshot!

The sad thing is this game is going to sell well anyway .... if only people use a bit of their brains and went and got PES 5 instead.

Winning Eleven will be a different game....

EA make me sick, this is supposed to be next gen and they can't even get a player to hold the world cup right, ffs.

mmm I love the plastic skin and lumpy knees.

Also why doesn't the guy firmly grip the cup?

Here's something for EA: skip a year and take some time to actually make something decent. Stop releasing a game yearly like it's a white good, put some passion into your art. This doesn't look good at all.

No one should be suprised, its EA Canada, seriously what did you expect from them. By the way the 360 and Xbox version do look similar. The 360 version does look better but hardly a real graphically leap to the naked eye. Just a what i like to call a "optimized port version". We know what EA is about by now for the most part.

As much as it pains me to say it, I am 100% getting this game! I can't bloody wait. I'm an Aussie and our qualification was one of the best moment of my life (and I'm not even a soccer fan). The way that it united everyone was unpararelled. 'Gangsters' were running up to me and hugging me in the city after the game, etc. It was truly amazing. I wish to relive this and also win a world cup for Australia (if only on the field).
I hope the atmosphere is right more than anything else. Fuck the graphics.

Capcom should hire some of EA artists to make zombies in Dead rising look more realistic.

LOL Canada and Soccer... they should care about Icehockey or something else... this Job should be done by Europeans! The Gameplay still sux and EA won't learn of mistakes. Don't they hear the crowd screaming for better Gameplay? PES5/Winning Eleven is so much better and I want some Next-Gen Screens!
