We have just posted Part 2 of our 2 part interview with Joe Nickolls, Producer of 2006 FIFA World Cup. EA Sports also sent us some exclusive screenshots to go along with it this one as well. Just in case you missed Part 1, it's right here.
Operation Sports: "Have they done anything to the penalty system? In Road to the World Cup there were almost no penalties."
Joe Nickolls: "It depends on how severe the foul is. We have completely re-written the penalty shot mode and we obviously want to take advantage of that so it goes along with the adjustments we have made to the AI."
Operation Sports: "Will there be better atmosphere in the game? Will it feel like a real World Cup game?"
Joe Nickolls: "We have 12 official stadiums from Germany plus two official stadiums from each qualification zone. We have authentic crowd sounds from the majority of the countries that we represent. We have confetti and streamers and spectators dressed in the colors of the home team and sections of fans cheering for the opponents. Fans we even wave flags in the stands. This will certainly give it an authentic World Cup feel that you have never experienced in a game before."
