  1. I know what you#'re getting at. When me and a mate played UEFA for a whole day to try and get into it, we were complaining about the monotony of the types of goals we were scoring. This was really down to our pes wired minds. A quick trip to the Ea sports uefa website to look at goal videos soon made us realised it was mainly cos we were shit and didn't know how to play the game that was holding us back. Maybe your idea doesn't need to be in the intro but a proper 'tutorial' or 'gallery' in the actual game might be really good.
  2. PGR4 does....which I love...Is that against the forum's policy of approved opinions?
  3. Great thread. Amazing intros are things that I miss. But I guess the fact that now the actual games look comparable to a lot of the intros is a good trade off.
  4. two and a bit weeks to go. have been slogging away at fifa 08 and man does it feel old and frankly a bit rubbish in comparison. Light years ahead is 09.
  5. does it have anything at all to do with Microsoft? Isn't it coming out on ps3 as well? Has it got split screen on ps3 but not xbox? Have microsoft declared war on offline multiplayer? What the hell?
  6. nah you need to see this german man say 'BOOTH'
  7. it really is extraordinary. its as though someone spliced in the word 'booth' over the top. magic.
  8. all true. There is one way that Pro Evo used to 'fake' the bigger results in PES4 definitely and also 6 I think (maybe all of them). If you're playing the cpu and score 3 goals, the opposition changes tactics to 3 at the back and become more 'open'. This then usually opens them up for the 5, 6 goal rout. Obviously weaker teams were more likely to concede 3 goals earlier on and allow for these types of results. There's a similar trend in UEFA that if the cpu is more than two goals down, they sometimes give up, allowing for a greater margin of victory. Hard to tell with Toronto in the Fifa demo because it's so short.
  9. good question and like some other people have said, go with amateur to begin with. You really do need to unlearn pro evo and get to grips with everything before moving up the difficulties.
  10. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZwROVMZ7Sts here's one. Glad to see the 'dive' feature is still in there. Looks better than 2008 but it seems clear that in comparison to Fifa 09, there are simply things you cannot do. The right stick flicks come to mind and also in terms of your teams AI, there are moves, attacks adn things that don't appear to be possible. Hard to tell from one video i grant but years of experience of proEvo makes me feel like I've already played pes 2009 just by looking at that. roll on October 3rd.
  11. you could create a club on pes6. it was great fun. My team's sponsor was 'Booze Nest' which is the name of the off licence down the road. Started off in the Master League with a team of superstars (a la Man City) like Willem II's Kevin Bobson and the indefatigable 'Snake Derick' aka Northern Ireland's Steve Davis. The stadium was always pretty much empty cos it was a new team. I put myself in there as well and made myself Captain and played regardless of form which I liked to think irked the other players.
  12. i never even noticed the manager mode on 08. there's too many features in the game! really can't wait for 09 to come out.
  13. that's all well and good but what you really mean is that as a seasoned pro evo veteran you learn to adapt your play around the flaws...For me, shelling out nearly £50 for new frustrations when a slick, dynamic, playable alternative is available doesn't make much sense anymore. I was as stoic in my anti-fifa stance this time last year but I didn't realise how ingrained i was to pes' way of thinking until we tossed 2008 out of the window and gave the enemy a chance. Fifa 08 probably won't change your mind but not giving the 09 demo a whirl would be a mistake in my opinion. I'm decided on fifa 09 this time but I will definitely be trying pes 2009. Demos are free after all.
  14. played this in two player for like an hour last night. even though the matches are too short, swish through the menus back for another game. It's a great football game. Really looking forward to it. Just what I was hoping for from EA. Nice one.
  15. someone else mentioned this as well - couldn't find the quote. What an extraordinary comment. Go back to your ps2 proEvo and compare the 'delay'. It's probably 2, maybe 3 seconds delay to load the player if that. If i worked at EA and read people moaning about that I'd be tearing my hair out. Ludicrous.
  16. yeah the reviews were really so so bad that surely they could qualify as fraud somehow...deliberately misleading the consumer or something. All about the demo this year for pes.
  17. oh agreed. i love how if you mistime your header, they awkwardly jump for it and just get a little bit on it. Heading is actually *fun* in midfield.
  18. To an extent. It converted me and some of my friends but the number of people who refuse to give it a chance is staggering. My housemate works for Sony Games and has been banging the Euro drum all summer and none of them will even try it. 'Fifa's shit'. It's depressing.
  19. played two matches. it's good. probably won't convert any fifa haters though.
  20. the important thing to remember is that it really isn't anything like pro evo and all the shit you've gotten used to doing in pro evo isn't necessarily applicable. Definitely needs time to bed in just like when you first played pro evo and couldn't score.
  21. Well said. sadly, don't think i'll be able to afford to buy both this year. My early money is probably on Fifa 09 but we'll see.
  22. we were thinking that during our first long session with UEFA last weekend...then we started trying to aim a bit more, trying different power levels/positions and we were a lot more successful. they're still a bit too good though.
  23. all good points. will be interesting to see how it works. that said, they deserve credit for thinking about things like this and trying to expand the game.
