EA claims that FIFA 09 contains some 250 improvements over last year’s game. These include improved responsiveness, changes to the collision system and a new jostle system that takes into account players’ strength when calculating collision. Presumably, that means that strikers like Drogba and Villa will have an easier time running through defenders than Eto’ or Messi. Of course, Messi would just dance around the defenders, so that point is moot.
Or, we can sum all that up, and say that FIFA is just playing catch-up with PES.
And EA knows all it has to do is update the rosters, include the new kits, and tweak a setting or two, and people will still buy the game in droves.
Also, who’s gonna win the Euro?
