Hi Wicked Witch, I would like to mention that although after the latest update the frame rate has improved during gameplay, cutscenes and kicking angles are still stuttering and I've noticed some screen tearing as well. This should ideally be fixed in the next update as it has been one of the first issues many people has had since it first became available.
On the graphical side it's quite underwhelming, especially after seeing the first screenshots released on Facebook. I really like the approach to add a lot of detail in the player models with the new face scans. Although the face scans looks great, for some reason hair and facial hair is so pixelated (see images below). Now I don't know if some graphical settings were reduce to enhance frame rate performance but it's a really strange option to reduce hair resolution. The hair and facial hair really doesn't do any justice for the quality face scans.
Lighting is also really looking good this year, but rainy games look terrible. It might be due to the flood lights not being on in the stadium but everything is so dark and grey. Rainy games should have the floodlights on. That's kinda one of the reasons stadiums have them...
Here you can see the low rendered hair and facial hairs even on close up.
Look at the player with the ball. from far his hair at the back of his head seems to disappear...
But close up it reappears again, which shows it must have something to do with how the game renders hair.
I know to some this might seem nit picky, but for someone like me who likes the creation mode, I would love to see all the details in the hair and facial hairs.
I hope you can address these issues, as i really like this game. I just want it to visually represent the standards of today's gaming.
