played it last night on the xbox pre-release. i'm very impressed,even more realistic...passings harder so you cant just ping it about by pressing the pass button. if you hold it down it goes longer. slide tackling has improved alot. not so many fouls. the nudge foul gives away more fouls so you gotta be careful and not just button bash. defenders can push strikers off theball to win a header and you can also chest it down. the injuries have changed. if someone gets injured 1st half but can carry on, 2nd half they might not be able to carry on and you gotta sub them. also, the ref stopped play coz a player was down, ended up being a drop ball...all these nice touches make it the best football game around without doubt. thats all ive noticed up to know...cant wait till its released on the PS2.
