BEFORE FIFA FAN BOYS FLAME ME!!!!!!
I HAVE PLAYED OVER 3000 GAMES ON FIFA 08-11... I AM NOT A TROLL
LOOK AT MY GAMERTAG AND EA HUB!

I was so pumped for this game when it arrived on wednesday, however after playing a number of games online on pro clubs, pro ranked match, head to head and team play i can no longer sit back and ignore the flaws.

The Game FREEZES after EVERY Online Pro Clubs Match and i have to dashboard or turn off my console.

In a Head to Head Match vs my friend i paused the game and started to play when my friend was STUCK in the menu, i even scored and started celebrating before he told me he was stuck

Online team play, LAGS and freezes 70% of the time

Pro Ranked Match DOES NOT WORK. AS IN, AT ALL!!!

Subbed players turn INVISIBLE on occasion in online team play

Created Chants IS BROKEN

Achievements such as stay unbeaten in 5 ranked matches are BROKEN, i have a 6 unbeaten streak. Wheres my achievement.

Online pro clubs does not allow members to get into the dressing room if you cant find a game and it says "connection to opponent has been lost"

Im sorry but the amount of bugs in this game is truly astounding considering the amount of care that usually goes into FIFA's development process. A PATCH IS DESPERATELY NEEDED!!!!!

Okay, this is a brief summary of problems/glitches that I've encountered so far:

Invisible players after substitutions.

Team Play crashes so often it's unreal.

Head to Head games can freeze for one player, whilst the other continues, that is of course providing you don't get a blank screen whilst trying to choose your team.

Pro Ranked simply doesn't work.

Pro Clubs works....That is unless 'the game session has ended' because that means you have to go to the dashboard and restart the game to be allowed back into the room.
In addition to that, the game crashes after every match for certain people
Oh, and not to mention the fact that imported chants/music relating to Pro Club don't play/work.

Following on from that, if you've imported music for use in the menus like myself, every now and then it continues into a game, so you have to manually switch it off.

Players may receive an 'EA Servers are unavailable' message whilst other users are playing online.

Wrong players for substitutions - Mikel gets subbed, yet the game shows Essien jog off the pitch instead.

Achievements don't unlock if people quit, this needs little elaboration.

Penalties is spelt 'Penaties' for one of the accomplishments. (Petty, but that's just so lazy).

Sure, if you want to play the Exhibition or Career modes, they're playable, you can actually PLAY them, you know, PLAY?!

However, if you purchased this game for the online experience...... you're fucked!

If you want comedy-gold, play a "be a pro" match as an outfielder and watch your AI teammates run directly into the CPU.

Thats just the tip of the iceberg. Ive heard of people who's game would freeze EVERY time when trying to load a career save. Meaning they have to start a new career. Also, some people their accomplishments randomly lock again.

It's a great game, just let down by bugs. I haven't even got into a clubs match after an hour or two.

This is just the EA servers not being able to cope with the amount of people online, this is release day, everyones on it, in a couple of days it might be a bit better

I only experienced that when playing on semi-pro and amateur. World class the AI doesn't do it.

I have a belter of a bug though. was in march with chelsea and a game got postponed from 30th March till some time in april due to cup games. Now when i get to 30th of march it tells me I have a game and I goto the game screen and it sticks on "warming up" and won't start the match. When I go into calendar it says I don't have a match on that day. However it ALWAYS stops on this day and won't let me pass it without playing the match which of course I can't....

So that's my career screwed 2 months from the end ...

ive had some cracking bugs, in one game i was barcelona..... next game i picked chelsea, before the game started i was in the process of changing obi mikel for ramirez and all of a sudden my whole team changed to the barcelona squad? LOL game is a joke, my friend gets some random bugs too, when hes altering his squad before kick off his team player names all change to "player10" and he has no idea on who hes changing. EA have fk'd up BIG time on this release. i for one will be entertaining PES this year to see if its worth the change.

I got exactly the same thing. Before starting the game, I picked AS Roma and went to make a substitution when the squad turned into Sevilla's squad, the team I used the game before. Even in the arena just before the game loads I got Luis Fabiano with a Roma jersey.. and then my 360 crashed. 1 lose. Brilliant.

Couldn't of said it better myself. I was loving this game playing in career mode, I've tried playing online a few times and I'm ready to snap the disc in half! I think I'll give it a few weeks for EA to sort this shit out before I play online again.

agreed that this game desperately needs a patch. I am quite disappointed in this game if im honest! I feel that this game si a bit of a step back compared to the gameplay of fifa 10!

LMAO when fifa 10 came out i threw it at the wall. I was reli looking foward to this. But atm its pretty standard the passing is also a bit shite and the movement wtf ive scored about 20 own goals uncontolably. Just hit hem in the face and goes in. passin dont go where u want. And im pretty good a fifa. no one makes runs playin on high difficulties its so hard to get thi defence for me coz i play as west ham and i hate playin on nething below pro.

Ive only played 1 ranked head to head and the other player quit when i was 4-1 up! yet my stats read played 1 won 1 scored 4 conceded 1! not sure if it actually counts yet tho!!

on the bugs! ive only had a few offside problems, like i pass the ball into midfield and they still have all 4 defenders infront of there goal and i get called off side! ( and no he hasnt come back from an offside postion as i can see them the whole time before passing)

All good points apart from the end. The AI is completely fucked as well, both for team mate, opposition, and ref. I'm sick of some random 5.4 defender steamrolling passed everyone on the field and pulling all the tricks out faster than Messi.

So basically, everyone who's bought FIFA this year is just giving EA free money (again). 2 years in a row now that FIFA has been utter shit. At least PES is actually playable.

so glad its not me noticing it, AI seem to be be psycic as they can always guess ur approach, not to mention their tackling(if u can call it that), they just fucking stand there and throw u on ur arse, ive never played a fifa that is so untidy and unfinished, the world cup game was perfection as far as FIFA has ever been, why piss it around again

also as every1 else saying, online sucks as its to laggy, me and my mate play, he goes to sub, and game splits in two, hes aparently winning 4-3 where as in still winning the original 3-0. now my mate is quite good at fifa and its taken me yonks of attempts at playing him, always losing, and finally as im winning, it does this 2 games in a row

FUCK YOU EA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

well ive had 90% of the problems above but heres one that i havent seen before while playing pro ranked match when i ready and unready the game seems fine(no lag) i get into the game no lag GREAT I FINALLY GOT IN ONE. then my guy feels sluggish hmmm then the ball goes out a cut scene follows when it comes back my movement and buttons are about a second delayed. when the ball goes out again another cut scene when it comes back nearly a 3 second delay and so on . when i come out for the second half its a joke i flick the stick wait nearly 7 to 8 seconds for my guy to move. this happend in my last club game costing us the game . well done ea for releasing a game tha has the slogan WE ARE 11 your lucky to play with 2 with no lag as EVERY online mode is fucked i think they made a typoo and it was supposed to read WE ARE 1 as in yull only ever be able to play 1 player


PS: with all the freezing re booting my box has now got 3 red lights not blaming the game but never had a problem till fifa .

Yeah, hate that. I always try to ignore it and play as my position, but somehow that seems to be near impossible.

I have had a few glitches nothing huge tho.

Was playing a private head to head with my mate and i passed the ball and half way to my player it just got thrown up in the air for no reason.

Couldent get in the Pro Club dressing room.

So far i have had no problems with Manager Mode but with the amount of problems i had on FIFA 10 with it im sure the glitches will come.

I dont play Ranked head to head matches becaouse..... well im crap so i dont no about any glitches with that.

I've encountered pretty much everything thats has been said already but me and a friend encountered one problem I Havent seen mentioned yet.

Being knocked out of the Online Cup....for winning the game. Seriously what is this about?. This was the second time we got knocked out of the Cup last night..the first being because a team quit on us because they went a goal down straight from Kick off in the Quarter Finals.

I'm sorry but I know the 5 minutes time limit is there incase people get disconnected or are lagging horribly but its constantly being abused by whiny kids who cant face the prospect of losing if they go a goal down in that time frame..but EA needs to do something about it because its getting beyond pathetic.

In all fairness, the promise of a game being fixed doesn't make up for the fact they shipped a broken game AGAIN.

Still, I've not encountered any of the glitches/freezes/bugs so far, so I don't mind.

after playing fifa 06, (skipped 07) 08, 09, 10 and some others before including the great fifa 99, i decided it was getting glitchier every time. I could count at least 30 bugs and glitches from fifa 10, which, after a year of release, have not been fixed and are very annoying. The most annoying being those in which you it freezes and you cannot go to the dashboard, but have to stand up, and manually turn the xbox off.

This is why after so many years i decided not to buy fifa 11, now im glad :)
We should definitely make a stand, otherwise ea will just keep doing what they always do.

Am I the only one who hasn't had a single problem with the game, yet? Well, I've had one, and that's me having a 5 game streak and the achievement not unlocking but it's not like I'm not going to get it at some point so I'm not really bothered.

as far as the bap complaints, just play as the whole team, a lot easier and less stressful

Gosh EA basterds owe me 3 achievements. I got a streak of 8 wins in Head to Head, where only 2 guys left, no achievement. I won 5 games in a row in Cup match with my Club Pro, no achievement because the ridiculous EA host doesnt unlock the 1/4 Finals even if the message at the end of the previous game says "Your next Cup match will be a 1/4 Final". I also started a Club match with 11 eleven players, no achievement because the EA host doesnt allow some players to proceed to the loading screen. I can only blame myself, after Fifa 09 I swore I d never buy a freakin EA game, 2 years later I knew I should have taken the boring Winning Eleven 11, at least it doesnt glitch all the time.

The only problem I've encountered so far is that during career mode, when it's advancing the days during the transfer window(s). It freezes every time it hits a Tuesday, so I have to press B to stop it advancing and start it again. Other than that, it's been fine with me!

I'm so angry they let this game go out like this. It's shocking! What is even more shocking is I don't think they have even gave the fans a update on when and what they are doing about it. With this amount of mistakes can they fix it with a patch? It's going to be a big patch if so and will take a while. I was reading even manager mode has problems like player growth and dumb things like that. It's even freezing when I save a replay.

I'm a massive Fifa fan but I think I'm selling this until they fix the issue. I could do with the money instead of playing a broke game.

10-04-2010, 03:08 PM
Not going to go into great detail. basically one of the worst xbox games ever, how could they sell it in this state? game owes me a lot of acheivements, such as 5 win streak 5 different clubs etc. Pro clubs is extreemly laggy if you are lucky enough to even get into a game without everyones game crashing. not even gonna mention gameface, ea doesnt recognise my details so that acheivement is out of bounds again. if i see the person that made this game I will actually beat them until they give me my 36 pounds & hours of wasted time back. there are HUNDEREDS of minor flaws which i could list but im not going to waste my time with it. I have played many many fifa games and this is by far the worst. thanks for nothing ea.

For those who haven't had any bugs.... *Clap Clap* now get off your high horse and fuck off, for those saying the game only just came out... what if a film just came out at Cinema 1st night you went to watch it and the film wasn't even finished, all blue screens and ropes everywhere still, would you be pissed off or just hope an "update" fixes it. Lets be realistic, 10-15 years ago a game came out, maybe 1 or two bugs in the whole game, now we have this "we can patch anything!" business, games come out riddled with bugs, with EA's great developers we may get 1 or 2 of these fixed by, I dunno maybe December/January. 40 for an unfinished product is disgusting and stealing to me.
