GAMESMASTER: FIFA 07 play-test hands on
From the sounds of it in the magazine, they say it's possibly going to beat PES. They said for the first time ever in a FIFA game, when they were told to stop playing after 4 hours none-stop, they were gutted! The ball physics are better and from what I saw in a screenshot, it showed $ not points, which means it's real cash guys.
You can bend corners now, goal keepers have loads more animations and players' like Ronaldinho, C ronaldo, Carlos, etc have their skill moves, Carlos has his free kick as will Lapard (both mentioned), so I'm guessing Becks will too!
'Glory mode' in the game is cool. Once you start winning 3, 4-0, the game realises you're the winning team and the animations of certain players' become rather 'show-off' like. It says 'cheekier' animations for passing, crossing, shooting, etc......but they said the game IS simulation and an interview with the guys in charge at EA say they didn't want the goalkeeping and shooting from the World Cup game. It says that shooting is based on more factors from;
they say if shooting isn't satisfying, your game is going to struggle, meaning they've really tried to make it rewarding. " we tried to simulate real football, so nailing the ball physicals was vital. For instance, spin is now integrated, so people can shank, slice and screw shots all over the place. We feel we've now achieved that vast variety of shots people see on the football pitch every Saturday afternoon. On top of that we've also added context sensitivity system. Lots of factors go into this, including shot speed, movement speed, kicking angle, whether you're under pressure, what speed the ball is coming at you and player skill"
There's more, I'll prob type it up later. but for now enjoy that and talk about it. Sounds pretty swish!
