Ok I downloaded the demo yesterday, booted up the game, and immediately had an impression of the game in the first 5 minutes: "this is utter crap". I'm not starting this thread to discourage anyones hopes about EASPORTS's new FIFA 2004 but I'm sorry to say that after playing soccer games consecutively for more than 10 years I can boldly state that FIFA 2004 is a joke of a soccer game. Honestley it kept reminding me about Konami's classic soccer video game "Winning Eleven 6" and how the EASPORTS developers have made a pathetic attempt to immitate Konami's original work of art. First off the demo itself is a farce when considering that the market purposes of PC demo's is supposed to attract the consumer to the product, however in this case EA has merely rolled up a pile of garbage and posted it on their website for consumers to downlaod. The demo is frankly worthless and a poor marketing endeavour, much like the annoying flyers you voluntarily recieve when u get ur paper in the mornin, things that are simply meant to be thrown away (in this case deleted). I guess I'm surprised considering that 2003 was pretty mutch a hit and an all-round decenent soccer game. But if EA thinks that people will buy this "virtual abomination" because of preceding successes, think again. I would never buy this game and I dont care that they have all the logo's and name rights because they're a rich company, instead I prefer to buy a game based on interesting gameplay (isn't that the most important thing?) Some people may like it but I wouldn't be surprised if it got terrible reviews and little notice because of it's boring pace and its weak AI/Character performance. That demo was a waste of prescious seconds of my life.
