I was accepted into the beta so I thought I would start a thread on the game...(I didn't see one started yet). I have always thought Fifa got the most play out of my system as even though with its faults it is fun.

It's the annual game of "As the Pendulum Swings" with FIFA.

EA just can't seem to get the pace of play right. The game is released, the community cries, "The game is too fast!" or "The game is too slow!" EA developers overreact and design the next year's game with a knee-jerk in the opposite direction.

Plus ball physics have been a consistent pile of sh*t in FIFA forever, especially compared to PES. The ball floats like a beach ball or inflatable pig at a Flaming Lips concert.

That said, FIFA has made huge strides and features the full license, excellent graphics and fun game modes. But PES is a better product on the field, especially with last year's game. This year's PES demo is excellent, too.

Curious to see where FIFA lands this year in terms of game speed and ball physics. Fingers crossed.

Great summation by PK and I take full credit for converting PK to PES :lol:

Supposedly EA have made a few changes to career mode so I might give it look this year. PES has the more realistic team play between the two as well as ball physics.

Hang on there, Tex: I first started playing Konami soccer with International Superstar Soccer Pro 98 on the original PlayStation. Carlos Valderrama and his wild blonde hair were on the cover. :)

I think I read that as well so waiting to see how it compares with PES because the ball physics in PES are really impressive.

Volta is really on the rails as there isn’t many missed passes. I feel the ball physics are better

It’s nothing more than Fifa streets a mode created a few years ago where you can customize your players’ look, jersey teams, stadiums etc. When I was invited in their studios back in June, I told them the truth about it. I have no interest in this mode at all, it’s just an easy arcade pick up footie of five vs five.

I mean they got some cool animations in there and goal celebrations but how often will a serious Fifa player dig into that mode. Fix the career mode, bring back a good seasons mode. If it wasn’t for the license they own, honestly I don’t know where they would be as I play mostly FUT and even so I have done so in less fashion during the 19 version due to the poor gameplay.

The demo of PES 2020 has me so excited about the upcoming version. They nailed the speed of the game and camera angles. My love for PES goes back to those PS2 days where I would import the game from Japan and memorize a few Japanese words to get me going.

No google translate in those days, just the Asian leagues and odd international clubs but the gameplay was brilliant. The last couple of installments is inching them closer and closer to those glory days.

If they had the monetary aids, they would own EA in a heart beat with all the licenses.
