Not much new here. Besides, I'm not a big fan of skill moves anyway as I find them too effective and abused online.

Hopefully they won't be as effective with the tactical defending. If the defenders contain rather than dive in at everything, it should neutralize the moves to some point.

Well then there'd be no reason to ever step in. A fine line needs to be walked between offense and defense, I'm really excited to get my hands on the demo next week.

Oh I agree, I guess I was trying to say that it's based more on perfecting the timing of the move rather than just doing it at will to advance down the field.

Who are you guys kidding. This is an EA Sports game. Defense will never get it dues. There is no flash in defending.

kind of like Madden how the spin move is way too effective.

Great, a bunch of unrealistic moves that I'm too old to master, that will be used incessantly against me by some 14yr old using a player that has no business pulling off those moves in the first place.......

Awww yeah just my style. I love how you guys just assume these moves are abused and are used by players with a very low level of skill.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

I think you have to be skilled on the sticks to pull them off but what I think Bahnzo was saying was that some of those moves are unrealistic. Take the Ronaldinho juggling for example. That's a training ground move. No one does that in a real match.

I don't assume that skill moves are abused, I KNOW they are abused. Against CPU controlled defenders, skill moves make them bite too hard. And against human opponents, skill moves tend to make the user controlled defender act like they're stuck in quicksand. Besides, only a handful of players should be able to consistently pull off these moves.

2:35 for just one example of the cheesy effectiveness of skill moves. Even for Henry, that's just unrealistic:

More cheese @ 4:09

Bottom line, more often than not, FIFA ends up looking like a game of FIFA Street when these moves start popping up game after game after game... which they do.

You know you're right, but as unrealistic as the game is, it will remain as the #1 seller and never really be forced to change. Trust me, if PES had a few more leagues and more real names and kits, I'd hands down buy it over FIFA. Not having that makes me unsure as to which to get, even when I know the quality of the gameplay is better on PES.

Still confused as to which to buy.

Well do you watch football? "Skill moves" are used relatively infrequently, and if they are, they're used by ronaldo, nani, and a select few others. I agree with everyone else that the overuse of them online is ridiculous and completely unrealistic.
