It’s only been a couple of weeks since the release of the inevitable annual FIFA, and your probably still attempting to ascertain the difference between the new and “Improved” FIFA in comparison to last years apparently inferior version. Obviously I’m being callously sarcastic, because there is clearly a huge, Ronaldinho teeth size distinctions visually and technically between the 2, I mean come on, it’s not like EA only lazily update the teams and kits for the sole purpose of making money?…..*cough* Be that as it may, the battle for footballing supremacy is now fully underway between the 2 bitter rivals, but EA have already announced the release of another FIFA Street, and Oh? Is that a collective cheer of anticipation I hear. Oh, no it isn’t?
I know what your thinking, the thought of another FIFA Street would be enough to leave even the most hardened of Footy fans feeling thoroughly underwhelmed. They havent been great I know, fun, but repetitive after extended periods of plays, but this FIFA Street could be the game changer (see what I did there?). The major catalyst that could alter the success of this rather disappointing offspring is that this version is being developed by the team that created this years FIFA, which I’m hoping will be a good thing. Regulars to the series will already know what to expect, being able to play as your favourite international stars across 35 variant locations around the world, participate in five-a-side, one-on-one and futsal (no, I don’t know what that is either) matches as well as EA’s “Street Ball Control” feature, which will involve the control you have on the ball, whilst, well, being on the street I would assume. If EA can incorporate the same intensity and intricate gameplay offered by its more professional counterpart, while still allowing you to look awe-inspiring as you nutmeg Messi (clearly still not basing this in reality), then FIFA Street might actually be good entertainment, if not OTT, and should act as a sufficient distraction from the frustrating world of FIFA 12 .
FIFA Street is released in Spring 2012, click the link to watch the trailer
