Sure that's not a rendered intro? Doesn't look much like the gameplay vids elsewhere on this site.

As soon as I heard the song in that trailer, I had to get up and strip bollock naked and started jiving about the room.
Commented on 2007-09-01 21:39:40
That looks awful.
Commented on 2007-09-01 21:54:11
Looks better but Fifa still kicks it arse in the presintation zone. Aslong as the next gen versions get the full game this time ill be happy ;)

Wow, EA is killing Konami when it comes to quality.
Commented on 2007-09-01 22:31:02 In reply to szaromir
Really? Where is the proof?

The quality in Pro Evo is where it counts - gameplay.
Commented on 2007-09-01 22:58:03
Well, I was never overwhelmed by either PES or FIFA when it comes to gameplay, but technically new soccer games from EA are better.
Commented on 2007-09-02 00:28:03 In reply to szaromir
Graphics wise, you have a point. But I never liked the body models in Fifa, and the faces looked weird, some had big heads and some looked like aliens. The legs looked short and bent, and still do to this day. Pro Evo's player models look better and more natural, and the faces look spot on for some. Fifa has always lagged behind in where it counts, and that's a representation of the game itself. I think it will be no different again this time round.

pro evo never been a good looking game, it was all about gameplay which wins hands down over fifa every time..
I can`t wait and now been able to use live camera to add logos and game faces, looks like we gonna get a full version this time round...
Commented on 2007-09-02 06:40:09
i think FIFA is irresistable this year with all those teams and the game has gotten better with every new title... not to mention this game hasnt changed much since ps2... i ll have to wait until konami really decides to update this one.

This year FIFA for me.
FIFA 08 will probably its flaws and issues, but I really appreciate that beginning last year EA has really been taking FIFA into the next-generation with things like new physics engine last year and now with the new analogue trick system, which is really next-gen to me and vastly improved KI. If they have fixed the issues of the last game and after having played the game already I believe they have fixed most of them, FIFA will be a very good and quality football game. And the new features like "be a pro" and especially the online leagues and the interactive leagues appeal to me and make it a must buy for me. And btw the player models are noticably improved in 08. The whole lightning in the game is much better and the players now look like actual humans.

PES again this year with some little improvements. They are not reinventing the game and bringing it to next-gen, they are still only improving little things to perfectionize their old engine and the only next-gen upgrade are slightly better looking player models.

Commented on 2007-09-02 12:58:12
There's a saying... if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Why should Konami write a new physics engine and game engine when the current one is near perfect? Just because EA are writing a new one to catch up doesn't mean Konami should throw everything away and start again. That's just daft.

ps. I've always preferred the more natural look of PES to Fifa. There's something horrid about the stylised graphics in Fifa which are intended to make it look like a render. It just looks odd. And too cartoony. And there's too many un-natural canned animations in Fifa that make it look forced and, well, wrong. PES always looks right. To my eyes PES looks, and always has looked, better than Fifa - it's an a design choice by the developers, and I just like the aesthetics of PES better. Whether or not there are more or less polygons in play I cannot say. It'd be great to see gobsmacking graphics but it's not gonna happen this time around, maybe not even this gen. But the gameplay should never be more than an evolution, a step towards perfection.

About the game

What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (4 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (4 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (4 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (4 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (4 Hours ago)
