FIFA series from EA Sports no longer needs introduction, probably the most popular football game series in the world. Obviously, this does not mean that FIFA is the best game of this kind, often Pro Evolution Soccer (PES) proved to be superior, at least in certain respects.
Autumn this year came with a new version, called simply FIFA 11 and, respectively, FIFA Soccer 11 U.S.. Producers promise a series of important updates, but unlike previous years this time might even be right on it.
First, because EA Sports has confirmed that the PC version of FIFA 11 will use the same engine as versions for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Hardcore fans of the series have strongly requested that in recent years, as the console versions had a superior quality compared to the PC, and studio producer said he took two years to make a port work as well. All three versions will have the same gameplay features and game modes.
Turning to the facilities offered by FIFA 11, we must say that one of the major news is Personality +. As the name suggests, EA Sports has proposed to draw an equal sign between the skills of a player in the game and its counterpart in reality. In other words, the Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo will have a greater efficacy of the implementation of free kicks and Spaniard David Villa shots at the gate will turn many of his goals. On the other hand, we must regard this function will be available only for well-known players, because abilities implementation is not as easy as it might seem at first sight.
One of the chapters in which Pro Evolution Soccer has excelled over the years has been the accurate images. EA Sports is preparing a counteroffensive and promises the players will be much closer to those of reality, and enjoying the animations in real time depending on the type of phase: acute pain after a foul, a small grimace when a hit head and, of course, the joy of a goal after marking it.
FIFA 11 will benefit from a new system called Pro Passing. Accurate passes will depend on more than individual players skills and how to reach the ball will be more natural than ever before being disposed of in a kind of dubbed passing.
FIFA 11 is available on the PC platform, the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii, PlayStation 2, Nintendo DS and PSP. Also, there will be a last generation mobile version of the game.
