A job well done. That's what one can say to the EA Games Canada development team. Well after a long and impatient wait, I finally got my hands on the game. I got the PC and PS2 versions at the same time ! (Lucky Me). I started the PC installation and in the mean time popped in the PS2 DVD. I wasted no time in starting up a Arsenal-Man U game with me in my favorite RED. I have played Pro Evolution soccer, but haven't seen a game like this before. This one rocks dude. The gameplay and the 'Fist Touch' control is superb. One neat pass and a flick of the right analog stick, will make your player flick the ball over the defender or perform some neat stepovers. The PC installation was complete, and I decided to start the game at 800x600 as my good old GeForce 2 might not oblige at 1024x768. It jerked. Turned detail level to Medium. Worked. Phew ! Took time to check out 'Create a Player' which is cool and started of with my team changes. All in all this is not a title sports fans will wan't to miss.
