Just six months after the release of Fifa 2000 (One of my favorite games of all time )we have yet another version of the popular football (Soccer) game from EA Sports. This time they have based it around the Euro 2000 tournament which starts in June. So what is new?:
Installation And Settings
Euro 2000 comes on the single CD-ROM, depending on how much hard drive space you have, you can do either a regular install or a custom installation. I recommend going for the custom one and selecting everything just in case you have the same graphic problems I have with the game.
There is no simpler way of saying this...if you have played Fifa 2000, you have played Euro 2000 as well. There is really nothing new on the gameplay side apart from the inclusion of a new skill drill section which is a little too easy. The idea of the skill drill section is to show that you can perform a certain set of moves for your coach, for example you may be asked to cross in the ball and then do a header for a goal or say do a lob pass and then do a headed pass. It is a well put together part of the game, but as I said earlier it is a little too easy to complete.
The AI has managed to improve very slightly over Fifa 2000, players tend to run back from offsides a little better than before and some of the "certain goals" from corners have been fixed. One new problem I have seen so far in playing is that when you are say 2 goals ahead in a match, the opposition doesn't really make any real effort at attacking you more than they did before they went behind in the game.
On the multiplayer side, the game is yet again lacking internet play so you are stuck with a network or modem to modem games, I wonder how long it will be until EA finally add internet play as a feature.
Graphics, Sound & Music
Let me get one thing off my chest straight away, Euro 2000 does have some great new graphical effects such as better crowd animation, improved player effects like dirt on their kits but this has affected the frame rate in a very bad way at least for me and many other people who have started to play the game. The box clearly states that the minimum specs are a Pentium 166 and they recommend a Pentium 200 or above with one of their recommended graphics cards. So I was ready to go with my Pentium 450, 128mb ram and a G400 (Which EA recommend you play the game with), so you can imagine my and many other peoples horror when the game runs at around 10-15 frames per second no matter what resolution you set the game at.
Don't assume that I haven't tried everything to fix it either, different drivers, enabling triple buffering via the registry etc, nothing worked except for one thing...changing the games detail level down to zero, this made the game playable but it looked pretty bad to say the least. I could accept the lower frame rate and blame my PC if the game looked exceptional like say Quake 3 (Which still gives around 60 frames per second on my PC) but the fact that it doesn't makes it even worse.
The new faces that have been added to Euro 2000 and have been branded about as been great in some reviews and previews are nothing to write home about to say the least, I personally prefer the ones used in Fifa 2000. Sound and music are yet again excellent though, with John Motson and Mark Lawrensen both returning to do the voice over commentary and Des Lynam as the introducer to each game.
As you can tell, I am very disappointed with Euro 2000 as I had high hopes for it after reading through a number of previews and the fact that Fifa 2000 is one of my most played games, but this is basically a slightly better looking version of Fifa 2000 just 6 months after that came out, and I can't really recommend readers to shell out £30 for a title that should be an add-on. That and the fact that the frame rate is dire not just for me but for many other users. A real shame especially as it will sell so well.
