I never played a soccer video game before. I either played games of Hockey, Basketball or Football but not soccer. Winning Eleven 7 has some realistic graphics, fun gameplay and you can play the games for hours with friends.
I haven’t played the previous games so I can’t really compare the games. I liked playing this, even though I could barely score on the computer. I felt like I was playing defense the whole time and kept getting too many penalties. That’s what I don’t like about soccer. You breath on your opponent, you get a penalty. That sweeping kick button is gonna be the death of me. Maybe why I lose every game is because I don’t do any strategies Usually with hockey games, I can pick up the style of play and figure out how to win immediately. This is a little bit harder to play. Which can be good because it will give you a little bit of a challenge.
You can pick a bunch of countries to be and/or play against. You can play an exhibition game, or you can play a tournament. Obviously you’ll want to get the game down before playing the tournament. I think the graphics of the game are really awesome. They are very realistic and you can tell that video games have come a long way. Now everything is done with motion capturing, to get that realistic feel.
I’m still figuring out the game and all the moves. I had to switch around the default settings of the controller because it wasn’t what I was happy with. While starting the game, there was like 50 intro screens. I thought that was kind of dumb to have. Though I think you hit start or a bunch of buttons and it goes to the beginning of the game. This is the type of game where you can get a bunch of your buddies and play for hours. So this game definitely has replay value to it. Soccer fans will definitely want to buy this game.
Favorite Aspects: The graphics are great and the game is fun to play.
