Damnit, I really was hoping this game was going to be good and I was even okay with the demo because EA still had time to improve the imbalances.
However it seems that they haven’t done that and have released a horribly flawed game. IGN has just released their review and given it a 5/10 which is fantastic since EDGE magazine slammed it with a 3…
This will be quite a hard blow for EA to take as Facebreaker was their first title out their new ‘FreeStyle’ department and had high expectations hanging on it.
Hopefully EA doesn’t throw in the towel though as I think they have the ability to release some awesome free style games…
If you were wondering the game is being slammed because of gaming imbalances… that’s it really. Cheap moves, lucky shots and general lack of skill required.
