previously someone talked about these moves i'm going to talk about but not very clearly (in my opinion).
When not moving at all, If you press the button with which you hold the ball, and then you press any of the right analog stick direction, you'll see several fake movements.
However, i don't find this very useful. In real life it would be more. it is rather something you use to look nice or to mock your friends playing with you.
While pressing the 'hold the ball button' turn to one side for a little bit and then (without releasing the 'hold the ball button') to the other (now you can let go the 'hold the ball button') is usually good to pass a defender close to the side lines, so then you can cross the ball. In the center field this "trick" is not so effective.
When i want to make a low shot (close the half-moon area) usually i tap the shot button twice, and it works fine. Shooting while pressing the simulation button is not so good because sometimes it performs a fake shot or a dribble instead of shooting.
To curl in a free kick you just have to move the right analog stick to one side, so the player gets sideways to the ball. i don't know, though, if it is possible to curl also while the ball is on the air.
theres some pretty cool moves in the game,but the defender always steal the ball so it doesnt matter what move i do! maybe i learn how to do soon,cause i have always used the nhl buttons so...im a beginner with a,s,d :P
Apologises if this has been posted before I am new to the forum and the game for that matter, so feel free to call me a NOOB if you get the urge.
More of a dirty trick than a tip I discovered last night in the Fifa Lounge.
Clicking down (and moving) the right hand thumbstick in game creates a variety of silly sound effects ranging from an old fashioned rattle, an air-horn and out of tune trumpet etc. The longer you hold it down the longer some of them last. The trumpet is a good one. The beauty is you can use any of the 4 plugged in controllers to make these noises even if you are not playing in the current game, great for causing distractions. I managed to totally put off my mate last night as he had a one-on-one with the keeper. He lost his composure as air-horn blasted out just before he hit shoot and I wasn't even playing the game. . Dirty tactics I know but quite funny.
Now I realise that 'Crazy Sound Effects' can be purchased in game but even with this turned off in the game options these noisy distractions can still be used, in the lounge at least not tried in any other games. Someone else may be able to explain this with a little more detail and point out that I am an idiot
BOING BOING MOO QUACK
