Hola Amigos...I was really excited abt FIFA-09 after reading countless positive reviews! It has improved over FIFA-08 in terms of graphics....also, scoring the Goals has become a bit easier than 08.
But there's still the existence of perennial issues. Few of those cld be -
1.Very difficult to score frm d range...Goalkeepers somehow manage to get their hands to deflect d ball!
2.Game could continue for more than 3 extra-minutes, even though injury time is 1 minute.....and it happens very frequently(come on...it doesnt happen so frequently in real football games). It is very annoying! U never hv any idea whether game will finish in 1 minute or 5 minutes!
3.Substitutions r still treated as a way to replace the injured/unfit player; rather than tactical/time-wasting approach. There is no wastage of time during substitutions.
4. After few games...everything gets repeatative(Board messages/expectations, fans, gameplay, commentry etc.).
5. Scoring the goals through perfect crosses is difficult. Though it has been improved, compared to previous editions!
6.I still feel tht FIFA series has become too predictable!
Apart frm these issues, it is a gr8 fun to play FIFA-09(as always)!
If u ask me about the game, most difficult to manage....then it has to be Caesar-3(for me, at least!).
Player is supposed to manage a hell lotta things....farms, markets, military, Colosseum, Hippodromes, Caesar......not to forget d citizens.....the almost impossible entity to please!
They dont like granaries or aqua-ducts nearby....neither the barracks! They desist d water from well now....they prefer fresh water from fountains!
No matter how hard u try to please 'em...they ll abuse/curse u in public. :D
Added to tht...ur military is prone to lose d motivation every now and then.....and it ll remain shivering in their camps, while invaders loot ur city! :D
If this is not enough...there is wrath of Gods!
Wow....It's d difficult(and very very interesting)game to play...very minutely detailed and nearly perfect! In fact every mayor-to-be should be asked to cross certain levels of Caesar-III before taking d charge ;)
So...when I heard tht Caesar-IV was out in d stores...I brought it wid big deal of anticipation.
But alas....the moment the game began on d screen...I lost d interest in it....Vary first thing I noticed was very poor graphics!(at least I thought so).
Caesar-IV was a big disappointment for me....a complete disaster!
Let's hope tht Caesar-V(if it's ever released) will be much better, improved and fulfil d expectations!
What say u?
2 thumbs up
What an amazing game!
One of the best(if not the best) war-games ever!
Modern weapons, gadgets, vehicles....everything's there!....and yes...even a nuclear- explosion!
Graphics r gr8! It's like watching...or rather....playing the heroic character in a movie(or in real life)! Added to tht..it's very easy to play...Almost anyone can play!
If u want to play a game wid following characteristics...then Call of duty-4 is for u -
1. Shooter genre War-game with Very good graphics/Sound/AI.
2. Ease of play.
3. Good Story.
Hats off to d development team at Activision!
