o/

360 version though.

If only I could shoot then I would be great at it. 1-0 wins start to get dull after a while but knocking it down to easy for one game every so often is great.

Any 360 users up for the League I've set up over at EG?

PM me at EG and I'll send through the Password and details.

Go on, it'd be much better having a load of regs rather than the random 100k ers that are PMing me at the mo!

:)

PM sent.

It'll mainly have to be weekend games for me but I should be able to squeeze some others in.

Has anyone tried both versions yet?

I was discussing with deem today/yesterday about it being very laggy in terms of button presses and the players actually carrying out your instructions and he hasn't experienced this.

I've played it on the PS3 though (a mates) and deem is playing it on the 360.

Would be interesting to hear if you've experienced this as well El MUERko (it's not all the time, but it happens a lot, like pressing through ball and the guy taking an age to send it off). Plus the half time cut-scene was really jerky when the players walk towards the camera etc.

Nothing that I would call laggy. There is a delay if you try and get the player to do something out of stride but nothing else. All cutscenes are pretty jerky.

I've not tried the PS3 one.

I've noticed slow down in cut scenes, the ref doesn't whistle for throw-in's, some of the FAQ's are in German and I've been unable to connect to the net and send a video :/

I've played two online games and found the AI of my team mates seemed to drop a bit, square button rarely drew in an extra player to tackle and there was a nasty delay switching players in defense, lost 2 - 1 to united as Birmingham cause it didn't switch player and Rooney then Ronaldo sailed threw my defense :(

As for gameplay, some animations can take a while but so far no real complaints from me.

Ps3 version.

Post I made on the fifa forum.

Firstly there's the picking teams thing(online). Why sometimes does it prevent you from picking a team? You then have to cancel the match or it'll say its not available.

Also and more annoying is the Ronaldinho load bit(again online). It sometimes just freezes on this bit, it's not a freeze as such, the game just never starts. Very annoying as it has happened to me 5 times, putting 5 loses onto my profile and some % on to my DNF stat.

Even stranger is that if you leave it on Ronaldinho for around 3minutes the screen goes black. Press buttons and you'll here the ball move around. Press left on the D-pad and here it goes weird. I was in Old Trafford Pro mode against a keeper (arena basically) as Van der sar, taking shots at Gary Neville!!!!! WTF!!!:)

Same thing happened with Juve, taking shots with Buffon against a player.


Anyway, rant over, love the game to bits, hope these are fixed. Anyone else experienced this?


Haven't seen slowdown, etc, though I rarely spot these things.

The Asia region 360 version is taking it's sweet time. I was considering the PS3 version but JohnyM60's post has put me off.

I reckon I'd prefer the 360 version, as I'm used to the pad for FIFA and more people I know have 360's.

Still if I get desperate I might get the PS3 one. I really want this game, very jealous everyone else is playing it already.

If you press directional pad 'down' you go to free kick training in arena mode, maybe from there you can change the players.

Yes indeed it is.

I started playing it at 8:20 this morning.

So far today I have managed to copy and paste 2 blocks of text.

:(

Bloody typical EA. They give us the useful addition of copying and pasting text, but then they spoil the addition by overcomplicating it to the point it takes all day.

No, hang on...

FUCK YOU UBISOFT

Want me to put you in the league trip?

Couple of people haven't got back to me since initial responses, so I'm booting them.

I'd rather have a reg than one of the randoms that have requested a place...
