Fifa 2005: A few things worry me

Guys, I'm not here to be negative about Fifa 2005 - I think it's a very good step forward from last version and I'm sure many people will enjoy this game a lot! :)

But a few things worry me a bit. Yesterday the Dutch version was released and I noticed a few things that I think are pretty annoying and not really fair:

- The lighting on players during night games is messed up. Some parts are very brightly lit, which makes them look like plastic, but other parts (like the back of their shirt) isn't lit at all.
To me it seems like they've had a problem with night games and decided to put them in as unlockable extra ? Cause also, in career mode there are no night games (only clouded, sunny, rain).

- The dutch commentary is completely fake. You really can't compare it with the english or german from last year.

They don't say any team names, and they only say one or sometimes two player names for each team! Like with AC Milan, they only say 'Kaka', with Ajax they only say 'Sneijder', etc. The rest is all generic stuff that never mentions anything specific (3 different game intros, like "the stadium is sold out and these are the lineups", and stuff like that).

Also there are some serious problems with it: The co-commentator often says 'this game has the same score as last game', while it isn't true.
The commentator keeps saying the complete intro and when you skip it and are already playing for a few minutes he's still busy with his intro - which makes it really weird.

- Another thing that really makes me wonder are the chants. When I play with Barcelona, Ajax, AC Milan or whatever team I tried sofar, I always here the same type of chants.
It's always that 'There's only one......there's only one.........only one.....' (hope you know what I mean :) )
Yes, ofcourse, there's the normal stadium 'sound', but I thought last year italian games sounded different than engish or spanish games.....or am I wrong ?


Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but please reply if it's different for your game......

Thanks!

Most of your issues are cosmetics. You shouldn't make those problems sway your decision to purchase the game

You make a lot of valid points and I agree they are only small points but they add up and can compile to be something really annoying.

Fortunately I don't see any of this bothering me.

Like I said, there's nothing wrong with the gameplay, career mode, etc, but I just thought it's no really fair to sell it as a real dutch version.

But people who like to enjoy full commentary ( I do), might be better off with an english version.

Btw, does anyone know when they will put the other commentary files online at EA ?

Thanks :)

Can't you select to have English commentary?

Also, I thought that all the big teams have their proper chants or at least proper generic ones.

Got the game today and was impressed with most of it. I liked how you get points to unlock different stuff, the new gameplay. But the major disappointment is this carear mode. I bought the game so i can play as my favourite team (with me in) but no i have to start with some crappy league two team. Thats fine if its meant to be a management sim but this isnt -> we should be able to pick any team.

did u not know that going into the game u were going to have to start with a low league team? Most people knew that already.
