    I have ordered Pro evo.

    But I might still be tempted with Fifa if it features infrastructure play. Does anyone know?

    Thanks

    That is excellent, have you or anyone else tried it?

    Might have to invest in this over the weekend, if it is any good.

    Thanks

    ive never been a fifa man but me and my mate bought it today so we can play the multiplayer.......but
    its as smooth as a babies bum when playing on your own but playing wireless multiplayer its very glitchy and slow!
    ea really are money grabbing ****s!
    why should it make such a big difference ,surely they could of optimized it better!
    bring on pro evo hopefully they can sort this out!

    hold out for winning eleven (pro evo), by far the most realistic footie game ever made. Fifa06 is poor in the graphics department looks like the gba version when in the sidline view, plus still too easy to score.

    I really want to wait for the "better" game that is Pro Evo BUT it doesnt feature online play does it? FIFA06 DOES which is a serious advantage which means I think I will buy FIFA for PSP and PES for PS2.

    Has anyone else had problems with FIFA online? I have PES5 on order but as stated earlier in the thread Fifa does support infrastructure mode which I'm itching to try.

    I've been playing it a bit. I must admit that i'm not really a football player, but i did find that the players can get ridiculously small on the screen.

    Overall I just felt a bit uninspired! Was a bit bemused by that fact that the little loading messages boast about 'This years advances!' and 'This year you can...' :mad:

    Bloody EA! :rolleyes:

    can anyone give a genuine review?... is it worth or purchase or not? -- previews of winning eleven have been mixed, a couple saying that its not so very smooth on the psp, and no commentary, and no infrastructure -- All things that fifa does, apparently very well.

    PES is a better game of football. Sure, there's no commentary, but to be honest, with the standard PES commentary, that's a good thing.

    FIFA is poor, simple as that.

    What it comes down to is whether you would like a good offline game (that can be played with friends) or a poor online game that can be played with anyone.

    while i apreciate your point of view, have you actually played Fifa 06 and PES on the PSP... otherwise you're really just assuming the above, aren't you?.

    and that sir, makes an ass out of u and me... and if you have played both, then i apologise for my attitude - i just want an honest review, i do apreciate what you're saying though, and, to a degree - agree.

    If the rumours of choppiness and long loading times on PES are true though... i may just end up with none of the above.

    ^^^ WE9:UE has terrible slowdowns in the box and the load times are rank. Other than that its a good game.

    Haven't played fifa 06

    I have played Winning Eleven 9, the JAP version of ProEvo 5. I've also play FIFA Soccer and the new FIFA 06. Both suck. I can't really comment on choppiness for ProEvo as I ran it from the memory stick (which I plan to do with all my games as it's just faster), and it ran smoothly with zero slowdown. FIFA Soccer is very choppy, and while FIFA 06 is better, it's still miles from ProEvo.

    Online play is the only thing it's got going for itself.

    I've got the game and I don't see what the fuss is about over slating it. Looks like a Gameboy Advance game?? Please...

    It's Fifa, it's like all editions of Fifa but portable. I've also played wifi agaisnt a friend and I gotta say it was flawless, no lag or slowdown.

    Load times are painless, commentry is very good. I don't play as Premier League teams, but from what I have seen of the Prem League players close up it seems pretty good. Shirt detail...while not as detailed as the PC version, still very acceptable, you can easily see sponsers etc clearly. The default cam angle is quite far away and players are quite small, but IMO not a problem.

    Yes it's easy to score, but you can play some decent football and score some spectacular goals.

    One major gripe is the transfer dealings are WAY behind. In fact Sean Thornton (Doncaster Rovers) isn't even in the game :(

    Bottom line......put things into perspective. For a portable version of Fifa this is more than acceptable.

    Any other questions, just ask.

    Hope this helps.

    EDITED - load times comments didn't make sense lol

    Thanks Tiger, thats all i wanted to hear... it seems any questions on this game are generally met with a "Wait for PES" attitude, and while a respect that i haven't heard good things about winning eleven and its ultimately not what i want to hear... i'm gonna go pick this up i think.

    Bless you... bless you very much.

    Quite like this game, is fun and thats what counts. What gets me is that the opposition can tackle u so easily [even on easy mode] yet it takes a bit more to return the favour!

    Maybe its because i'm playin as Leeds utd :D

    pro evo 5 is really fast and loads really quickly when run under umd emulator at 333mhz! :clap:

    The english language patch also makes it a lot more accessible!

    Hmmm I take it this is a serious question, it's just that when I hear any question like "Is FIFA any good?" I tend to look for the punchline somwhere.

    The answer is NO. FIFA has, is and probably always will be poor and should never be purchased over a piece of gaming brilliance like Pro Evo/Winning Eleven. To put things in perspective, FIFA could have slick online play, photorealistic graphics and the game could have every option under the sun in it and I would still buy Pro evo with no online play and no options apart from the ability to play 15 min exhibition games with a choice of 6 teams!

    Any football fan worth their salt would agree with that 110% i've tried fifa in the past thinking oh it'll be better this year for sure? and it always fails year after year.

    I've said it before and i'll say it again i would'nt have fifa if they gave me it FREE.

    Buy Pro evo and you'll never look back, it doe's what it says on the tin. :D

    4000th post and its about evo :clap: ;)

    I played a spot oe WE9:UE tonight using UMD Emulator 8 (running at 333mhz) and was very, very impressed!

    It runs flawlessly with no slowdown and as it's on my mem stick the load times are instant! It looks and plays almost identical to it's bigger console cousin and the only things really missing are the Wide camera view and commentary (although lack of commentary is more of a blessing than anything else). It's a shame that there's no propper 16:9 view as well (it's just the 4:3 picture squashed to fit as the centre circle fills the same amount fo screen that it does on the PS2/X-Box on normal long view) and I do prefer the wide view to see more of the pitch. That said, if there was a wide view on the PSP then the men would be tiny! I guess they had to exclude the wide view as it uses more processor power. The control is good, although the PSP is not the most comfortable unit to hold and the analogue stick could benefit from one of those bigger replacement nubs that you can get.

    All in all this is excellent though and I spent my first game in a state of awe that I was playing PES/WE, (which looks almost identical to the game running on a current gen console) on a handheld!! :eek:

    Stunning is the only word for it!

    i think im going to have to try this running from memory stick as the loading times and general slowdown in the box at busy times is a joke on W11.i also have fifa and while its obviously no pro evo beater it certainly is an entertaining alternative imho,think of it as pro evo is the forza/gran turismo and fifa as burnout/midnight club.people started moaning about the loading times on tiger woods etc and i honestly have to say i have neve noticed slow loading times till W11,one of the little niggles is the amount of time it takes to make substitution`s :mad: never mind the other loading times.

    i think people are overly harsh on FIFA as before 2004 it was an absolute no go compared to pro evo but i think that there is a place for both on the PSP as they both have benefits and downsides.im less impressed with pro evo than i was with fifa but my expectations are lower for fifa lol.
