I am not giddy like a schoolgirl excited about this game as I have read enough reviews to know what I am getting into.  Mostly play mock World Cup games and exhibitions but will slog through the ML with one of the licensed leagues or make a fictional world league.  I hear online play is really bad with this one but if anyone wants to give it a try I will join.

I'm actually going to review the Wii version.  I really liked the vids on that.

I was going to get it until my wife blew much of our tax money on a new recliner yesterday.  Of course, the recliner is an early birthday present for me, so I'm not complaining ......

Anxious to hear how it is though.

Looking forward to hearing what you make of it, fellas.  The PAL release felt an awful lot like Pro Evo 4 would have done if Konami had programmed the full-backs to pretend they were strikers every couple of minutes.

Played a couple quick matches.  I prefer the quicker speed and WE/PES gameplay to Fifas slow pace and questionable gameplay in the air, passing and when in control of a player.  With that said it still feels a bit to fast for my taste and faster then previous editions? On the pitch I have not played enough to break down the AI outside that it feels similar to what I have played in the past.  Compared to Fifa 08, passing is much better in this game, ball in air play is much better and the animations are top notch. Nice for me to finally play a soccer game where I can maneuver by the guy defending me.

Also, and it may just be my limited time with the game but it appears to have cut down on the moon shots over the bar.  A couple time I hit a shot that in previous editions would have ended up near Jupiter, only to have it skim the top or go wide. Playing on 3* or whatever they call it now and the AI play is more aggressive than in series past. I remember on the PS2/Xbox versions that the AI seemed content to play for a 0-0 draw if left to their desire (on that 3* rating). 

The big problem is that it is just hard to look at the game while trying to appreciate the good things.

One thing missing from the options menu though (I am playing this on an HDTV)

[   ]   Please insert next gen, or heck, last gen grass textures, instead of this washed out mess that had me hearken back to my N64 days.

Even worse you have to play from the farthest camera or the sluggish framerate really kicks in.  What boggled my mind the most is that with the textures as bad as they are, there is actual pop-in at the top of the pitch as you move upwards.

I will throw out more gameplay comments as I get some ore time with the game.  I have to lead Dotan and his cronies to a World Cup.

If anyone gets this one I would like to try it out online.  This one is a keeper as the gameplay/control is still far more enjoyable than Fifa08. Just wish it was not so hard on the eyes.

Let me know when you get it, itching to try it online even though I have not heard good things about it.
