That game really pisses me off.

I played 3 games, so far none of my actions have been showed in the highlights. I can't shoot the ball somewhere near the goal. I can't switch between players the way I want to. My hand hurts from pressing 'D' all the time attempting to take away the ball from the other player. If I press 'A' 50% of the time I get booked for it. I can't organize my team.
Last game I played was Barcelona versus ADO Den Haag. Me being Barcelona. I lost with 0-2. Goddamn. ADO Den Haag is one of the worst Dutch teams.

So how the hell am I supposed to play this game?!

btw, atleast it's better than 2002.

You have to play it little bit longer (6 month) and you will have no problems!
Try NHL 2004 :D

w00t, 2005 is the only one I haven't played. I have played'm all on PC since fifa 96 (geekie me). Fifa 99 was actually the worst =p, fifa 98 road to the world cup (rtcw) was the best one. It even included some cool indoor football.
I liked the last fifa's a lot actually, like that thing where you can control the person your passing too before you actually pass ("off the ball" it's called or whatever).

I might buy the "fifa street" game for the gamecube, seems interesting.

I really liked 1998 aswell, indoor was great. Plus it had the cool Robbie Williams song. 2005 has a Flogging Molly song, isn't it? We had all the FIFA's starting from '97, but last year I cleaned up my cd-rom's, threw them away because "I'll just download them when I want to play them". I can't find any proper versions online...

Anyway, the reason I've installed 2005 is because it's the only one I haven't played yet. And I wanted to see the graphics and such. Quite alright, should be better when I get the new computer though, kinda slow now sometimes. Annoying thing is that if you don't set the settings on 'high details' you can't see the ball's shadow, making it very hard to predict the balls path when it's in the air.

I'll just play it a lot for a while, like HeadAroundU said. That should work, I might even score my first goal tonight.

Hell no, even though that game has some nice player moves, it's too.. I don't know, too not-fun-to-play.

apparently it doesnt really have any player names in the game from what ive read. that would piss me off royally. i eventually want to try controlling Juventus in career mode, but i gotta move up from a crappy team first >

I like PSV, if anyone should win, it should be them. Because there is no way that NEC is going to win any time this decade.

edit:
Well they're second now in my career, but that's thanks to.. me. PSV Eindhoven is still first... 2 points.. two damn points!

Fifa 2005, Lol. N00b.

PES is the best football game, well they do say that fifa is more aimed at the younger fans who just want to play a game of football with there best players or whatever, but PES is the REAL football game, much more realistic.

Perhaps you are in the fifa category, thats cool, just keep practicing and when your older try out PES.

Go mare your own PES thread if you don't like FIFA.

In the career mode:
Everytime I complete a match, I get passed a screen with all sorts of people and their job names behind them, what am I supposed to do with that? When I click it it just gives me some information about the job.

PES 3 was fun, but a bit too easy for my taste, I played it for like 6 months with my nephew. We always played togheter against teams and it was easier to win with PES 3 than with fifa on the hardest level (and ofcourse fifa had nicer graphics/commentary and real names, except the grass which looks nicer in PES).

About it being realistic, no way, since I pretty much suck at football in real life ;).

haha! you really did gather a shitload of points.

i thought i was going to hate the whole ownership mode since you need to start off with a lower team but i kinda.. cheated a bit.. put some good players on New England Revolution in the MLS (including myself -_-) and uh.. yea.. :D

W 28 D 0 L 1
