They are PES's best numbers in comparison with FIFA (in the UK, worldwide stats I don't have), and they did get really close. Pretty sure PES was on a whole lot less platforms back then too compared to FIFA. PES has just fallen away so much, but FIFA has grown massively too now that EA put some effort into it.

Yeah PES 2 - 6 i think is when it was at it's best. My last favourite PES was the 6th one.


6 was gooseberry fool. 5 was the end of the line for this series. I think it did decent numbers because the 360 had just launched as people were desperate for a new gen pro evo. Myself included. When i played it :dread: the horror.

I loved 6 it actually had a stable online mode unlike most of the PES games since then.


Pro was always about the multiplayer for me, i suppose before online gaming evolved. Konami seemed to screw that up, and it went from bad to worse.

Oh yeah the offline multi was amazing, i use to play all the previous ones with my mates on a weekly basis. Fifa at that point was an absolute joke of a game,PES 6 was my first introduction to online football games. The 360 version had a weird new engine which looked a little different to the ps2 version but once you got use to that it was ok as everything else was the same. The online mode though was really solid at least for me and i remember having some epic games although you could really mess with the formations. I remember needing to win a game badly once and i put 6 players up front and hoofing the ball repeatedly just to get a win. Adriano was also the most OP player ever.Check out that shot power.

I sware that while playing the whole team on the journey the computer wants me to loose. Wouldnt let me bring the goal keeper out when the ball was next to him. Did a slide tackle and gave away a penalty when i never even pressed tackle. Something strange going on

Also issues I had with the switch player not working. Seems to only happen in the Journey. Have had it switch to players not even close to the ball, not let me control the closest player to the ball, triangle to call out the keeper not working and below which is not switching at all :evil:

Sounds like some weird bugs and yep might just be around The Journey. I havent come across any major bugs yet in FUT. The only weird things i have had is the AI going a little bit crazy at points, one especially in FUT which ended up letting the other players score a tap in. It was some weird thing where my goalie for some reason just had to get the ball, decided to slide save it which put it in the path of a player and they tapped it in. I won in the end so no biggie but it was infuriating.

Im finding issues when you press shoot or pass there seems to be a 1 second delay and by than you are tackled. Switching player sometimes you find your defender stop running for an instant and by that time the attacker is gone

regarding the defender check your settings. There is a setting regarding how much running your defender continues with when switching players. Not sure what the default is but i am fairly sure i changed mine ages ago,because of EA profiles all my settings move from version to version.

Up to Division 3 on seasons on this now and loving it.

Think the fluidity, in terms of controlling the ball, passing it, stopping & changing direction is really good. They say this every year but I feel like the movement of team mates has really improved.

Trying to introduce a few more threaded through balls and hard low shots, which I think are a good additions, to my game.

Also having not scored from a corner yet had a look at a You Tube tutorial last night so hopefully that'll make a difference.

BT Sport to start showing FIFA tournament games next month

https://www.theguardian.com/football/20 ... e-bt-sport


But don't worry, FIFA 16 fans, GINX will continue to show the same tournament over and over.

Right, after a couple of seasons away from the pitch I’m looking at getting a new football game. My current game is PES2016 which I’ve played to death and am utterly sick of, but before that it was FIFA all the way back to PES6.

FIFA 18 is out and I’m interested, but I have a question for those that are playing it:

Does FIFA still have a the “create-a-player-and-then-do-their-career” mode? Offline only, I’m hoping. I know it’s got the Alex Hunter mode but I’m after a more personalised experience.

I remember on FIFA 15 they had it so you could create a player and progress their career, and in matches choose between controlling just them or the entire team, is that still around?

(By the way, if you guys start talking a lot about FIFA 18 you might want to create a thread for it. Just a suggestion -- I'll leave it up to the community 'cause I don't know anything about FIFA. :) )

I think that's thhe one where you have to take the keeper AND finesse shot into the goal. The description doesn't mention the finesse part but there's a video on True Achievements saying this
It's the hardest trophy to get apparently

That’s the one, it’s getting the keeper to dive that’s the issue

You need to approach from an angle . Haven't got it myself. Think less than 1% of gamers have this trophy

It appears that that the Alex Hunter journey mode has replaced a create-a-player option, Preezy.

FIFA 18's The Journey will follow the tale of Alex Hunter once more. The mode, which debuted in last year's version, is set to feature more star-studded names, varied locations and, as hinted by the mode's trailer, the potential of real-world cutscenes. Many fans hoped to see a create-a-player feature this time around, but Hunter's journey remains far from over...
