It's about time a decent game development company with innovative and fresh ideas - made a football game.
Pes has hardly changed and Fifa has been built on the same buggy engine for years. Another thing if you run a dual core upwards machine You need to physically set the affinity of the cpu's to the game so that it is using more than a single processor. Very sloppy coding really. If you need to set affinity, press CTRL ALT DEL and in the processes list, right click FIFA and select "set affinity" This might go some way to improving performance at least.
I won't be purchasing any more games from EA sports especially not the fifa series. The after care of the fifa product is non existent.
Do not buy this game, having said that I've got one for sale for 25 quid on here ; )
