regularcat, i agree with you. i can't imagine fifa 11 pc is anywhere near as good as fifa 10 pc with mods. i don't think it has the same modding capabilities as fifa 10 pc. you know this because you know what fifa 10 pc can do. your gameplay updates are all a tribute to this very fact.
EA built the next-gen games from scratch. they said themselves they didn't use a single line of code from the PS2 engine that build FIFA 10 PC and every PC game before it. the fifa 10 pc engine and all PC games before that were built in a different way, with many customizable parameters. some parameters that aren't even in the original EA base a.i. in fifa 10 work if you try to add parameters to this. it doesn't seem like you can do this the same way in fifa 11 pc.
therefore, we have a better more stable more customizable football experience with FIFA 10 PC for the time being. maybe they'll patch fifa 11 and it'll eventually be good. or maybe we'll have to wait for FIFA 12 PC.
i'm not giving up on next-gen, but EA soccer and american football games have a long way to go. i bought many EA games over the years on the PS2 engine, but i don't buy any EA games with the next-gen engine.
with the exception of some games like nhl 10 and nhl 11 which are great productions, next-gen sports games by EA have been an utter disappointment compared to their games on the original xbox and ps2. look at what happened with NBA Elite 11. The game apparently was delayed isn't even going to be released this year.
If EA wants to compete in soccer, it should release complete games for PS2 or PC games based on PS2 engines like FIFA 10 PC. We have all we will ever need with FIFA 10 PC. You know it. I know it. A lot of other people know it. We as consumers have given EA many dollars over the years. I hope one day FIFA 12 PC can be amazing and truly be revolutionary. as of now FIFA 10 PC is a more thorough game than FIFA 11 PC, and even the console versions. there are some nice new additions to Fifa 11 in the front end, but i wish they just added those things to the FIFA 10 PC engine.
