When you say football, the first thing a gamer would think off is FIFA (the game) by EA SPORTS. Some would prefer Winning Eleven but for me playing a team named Manchester United is much cooler than playing a team named Man Red.
FIFA 07 is the latest football game from EA SPORTS hence its 14th title from the FIFA series. If you would like to try the demo, so you can download it here. Otherwise, you could wait for another 2 weeks to buy the game.
I wanted to try the demo with my gaming PC, but when I read the requirements, “GeForce MX is not supported” “Aww… damn…” Luckily, I still have my work laptop (Core with ATI). The bad news is, my gamepad couldn’t be recognized by the laptop. SO I have to play FIFA, old school.
Like most games, the first thing you look into a game is its graphics. FIFA 07 doesn’t shine that much. It is still with its ‘watercolor’ image, and the UI is pretty much the same with its predecessor. Realistic player movement? Yes, except the celebrating goals part.
Something must have gone wrong during the motion capture process because the players who were celebrating goals were as stiff as Peter Crouch (no offense
If you are a fan of FIFA series, then you shouldn’t miss this. Well, it’s either this or Winning Eleven (or Sensible Soccer, perhaps?).
