I'm looking forward to seeing if they've changed the engine or if they're doing a Konami from now on... The fact that the "interactive leagues" feature of FIFA 07 on all of the other formats hasn't made it once again on the 360 says to me that it's exactly the same, but IGN claim it's an improved engine. Here's hoping!
This is great news! The more footy games the better! To be honest the idea of having a specific game focusing on the champions league is awesome.
I can remember the old ones being absolutely pants, with the graphics being absolutely awful. Atleast that side of it should change.
From these screens of the PS2 version the graphics dont look too different on that particular format:
The newest things I can see is that the players are now wearing gloves.
I cant wait to see what the nextgen version looks like. I really hope the refs are better and the players faces have been sorted out.
Btw, it also looks like this will be a PS3 launch game. Its been announced for the PS3, and we got a release schedule in today saying that it will be out on the PS3 on the same day as the 360. The schedule could be wrong, but heres hoping it gives us a clue of when the PS3 actually launches.
Can anyone post some screens with russian two participants? I mean PFC CSKA Moscow and FC Spartak Moscow. Cause i really don't see ANY improvements in the video level I just want to see if the kits and appearences match the current season
it just kinda pisses me off that they can't even get the fonts for big teams right, or at least a halfway realistic font size (!). i mean, the numbers are like at least 50% too small and just look at the "sergio ramos" writing on one of the shots, wtf ? i mean, it looks totally off. it's just like they have a fantastic new engine, but keep missing the small details to make it THE graphically most impressive football game. i'd rather have some less sweat or moving hair and maybe focus some more on the detail you see also without 200% zoom in replays
I agree that some graphics need improvement, but I wouldn't boycott a game based on graphics alone. Every game can improve, but thankfully it appears that EA are concentrating more on the gameplay than on improving the graphics. I'd much rather have it that way than the old way, or "the Konami way" as it's now known (i.e. making the players look plastic, adding nothing else and selling it as a brand new game).
Saying all of that, however, EA have to prove themselves now. The graphics are the same, so the gameplay must be altered. If not, then I'm really concerned that we're going to be playing PES5 or FIFA 07 repackaged until the next time they decide to change things.
