Fluid Football (a.k.a Fluid Soccer in the US app store) is a tactical football game where it places you in preset match situations with the main objective is to score a goal. It is your task to come up with a plan and play to score. Each level provides different kinds of challenges and the way you score lies ultimately in your own strategy and tactic. It is a tactical football simulation where you control your whole team (the given number of players that is within the level) and play some fluid football. Continue reading
New Star Soccer (NSS), a series that left me with much fond memories. I remembered reviewing the previous game a few years ago; NSS 4 was brilliant and so was NSS 3. NSS is a soccer/football simulation game where you play the life of a footballer. Whether you become a legend later solely depends on your skills and the way you manage your career and life. Back then the game offered something different from your bigger developers such as EA Sports and Konami with their FIFA and Pro Evolution Soccer (PES) franchises respectively. Both of those games didn’t have a player simulation mode then. However in their recent few releases, Be a Pro (BAP) and Become A Legend (BAL) are modes that are well polished and provide much fun. With that said, how does NSS 5 fair against the big guns? Continue reading
It is the time of the year again, the time when gamers who love the beautiful sport of football get to enjoy both the sport itself in a virtual gaming context. Yes, the release of the next Fifa game by EA Sports is just round the corner. Year after year since 2007, EA Sports have effectively tweaked and refined the gameplay and graphics of the Fifa video game franchise, raising the bar each time it releases a new title. However, this wasn’t the case for PC gamers. PC gamers were simply treated to the same old disgusting gameplay and boring graphics repackaged into the new boxes time and again. Next-gen was the cries of the gamers, the PC couldn’t support the engine was the supposed reason by the developers. The PC is less powerful than the consoles? I highly doubt so. I believe it is just a mere excuse for laziness or simply them not wanting to invest in the PC market. This time round, things are about to change. Fifa 11 PC version is about to hop onto the next-gen engine console gamers have enjoyed for the past 2 to 3 years. This is it. Continue reading
If you hadn’t already know, Fifa World Cup 2010 South Africa’s opening match between South Africa and Mexico ended in a 1-1 draw. Yes, the World Cup fever has started again. People taking medical leaves, not wanting to go to school or work, making excuses to go work later, staying up late at night to watch their teams play and of course going out to one of the public places to soak in the football atmosphere. To shout “goal!” is a common language throughout the world and the World Cup itself is one if not the largest sporting competition that plays great importance in the world of sports. The passion and pride of the individuals can be seen on and off the field. If you hadn’t already feel the heat of the competition, I hope some of the videos that you are about to see will raise the temperature a bit. Continue reading
Just 8 more days before the battle of the biggest and strongest footballing nations begins. The following 5 teams are teams that I predict will have a chance to win the world cup. Predictions are based purely on my self-belief and are totally bias without any doubt. Please do not take any of the predictions to heart and bet your money on any of them. Without further ado, here are my five teams: Continue reading
This is a very funny parody and exaggeration of famous soccer diving moments. Some are very recognizable and is definitely worth a laugh whether that soccer player is your idol or not or whether he did actually fall due to unforseen circumstances etc. No offence to any of the fans but this is just for laugh.
And for those who actually want to learn how to so called “cheat” in a match, this video has some tips for you as well. heh, guilty of some of the tricks there when playing with friends. Always funny when you dive and do something real stupid when playing a leisure game of soccer.
Hit the jump for the video. Continue reading
Just not too long ago in 2006 did EA Sports released an outstanding sports title Fifa 07. Many regarded it as a great improvement from Fifa 06 and that EA finally decided to improve its soccer games. With that said, Fifa 08 was just released a few days back and the claims made simply sounds majestic. Fifa 08 aims to give users better gaming experience as well as trying to fascinate players with its next-generation graphics. However, is that enough to impress the fans and players? Or is it simply a failure? I will give you my comments on the PC version of Fifa Soccer 08 as well as what I think about the console versions (I did not play them, just saw it through trailers etc).I would like to repeat once more that I will be giving you my review based on the PC version and not the next-gen consoles (PS3 and Xbox360). You will know why I strongly emphasize this at the end of the review. If you have been reading my blog, you might notice that I gave my thoughts on the PC Fifa Soccer 08 demo version. And my thoughts were completely negative and not a single praise has been added. Then and there I also stated how much I longed for the be-a-pro mode and I can finally try it out as I finish installing my Fifa 08 game.
