I decided to download the demo... first thoughts pretty good.

Always bought FIFA and willing to give any football game a try, the first things I noticed when playing it with Juventus v Roma.

- Atmosphere, the fans are non-stop, really gets you settled into the game.

- Player movement not too erratic, when moving with the ball there is a bit more fluidity.

- Presentation.. meh not much to say but not overly fussed.

- CPU A.I. no afraid to play the ball from the back or go direct, tendency to try and 'suck' you into their half.

- You can't just go around players but did find it okay to do so down the wing, perhaps tactically setup that way.

Noticeable things...

- Llorente called for the ball to play in but then took a step back allowing me to play the ball to his feet. Other occasions allows you to change the mind but allows the control.

- Not many fouls, again it seems to allow a bit more movement of play rather than start/stop, players tend to fend off rather than waiting for contact.

Remember these are just my early thoughts, not going to do the "compare to FIFA" and so forth.

Well I'm one of them, what about an option of just returning it and getting a full refund?

Can Codemasters explain why;

1. There is no career mode
2. No virtual/safety car
3. Lack of modes
4. Emphasis on recreating last season mode, WTF?
5. Crash mode no way near realistic

Despite the games being old Grand Prix 3 and 4 will always be remembered as the greatest F1 racing games, it's shocking that in this day and age the so-called big companies go out and just release games that are unfinished, buggy and lacking replay ability.

In some ways those who oppose the removal of the flag are practically right, it is an attempt to 'erase' history. Not sure what the "progressive" movement wants, it's not a Liberal or Conservative thing if anything they would stand up to this shit.

Nazi Germany flags - okay to sell/buy
Black Panther Party - okay to sell/buy
United States of America - okay... for now.

EA are beginning to sound like the Obama Administration; everything has to be "symbolic".

1. For the first ever FIFA to have Women team.

2. For the first ever Madden to have women in crowds.

And next it will be;

- For the first time ever a Gay captured player for Madden

- For the first time ever a Gay team will be in FIFA

- For the first time ever the FIFA President will appear to present Cup trophys in Tournament mode

- For the first time ever a retired player will appear on the cover of the game.

and so forth...

Just stick to sports and actually show us some footage EA.

Sony I think are admitting that its not really possible to have PS3 games running on their machine, perhaps it's because its purposely built for playing new-gen games.

Although this is a slick move from Microsoft it doesn't change the fact that during the time of which they made it quite clear that they didn't have intentions to allow backward-capability myself and many others out there ended up selling their games!

Of course Sony did well to offer a different kind of service to gamers but I still take disc copy over digital or streaming.

More concerned that whilst playing the game what if my connection drops, I lose connection to my MS Account and then what, it kicks me out and takes me back to the main menu?
