Thanx for your attention, I will try to explain to you why I didn't like KO2002 but my english is really poor.
I expected so much from this game and I was really disapointed by the gameplay. I don't care about graphics and stuff like that (I m still enjoying Player manager 1) but I can't help to think that the AI should have been much much better and that the game, after all thoses years should have improve much more than that. I think Steve have made a good old fashion game, like in the old days but it s not enough now that you can play game like WINNING ELEVEN 6 FINAL EDITION (and again I m not talking graphics but gameplay)
KO2004 must have an incredible AI, a role play option, some management (like the master league in PES 2) and a slower pace.
It s only my opinion and I already had this discussion, five years ago with DINO DINI when I was pissed by the FIFA series, begging him to make a new Player Manager with Steve.
I hope you ll will understand my terrible english
thank you gillis.
All I can say is that I totally agree about your critics against KO 2002.
Especially the cpu ai is bad and needs a big update. Thats something I have claimed since day 1 I played Kick Off 2002. Steve knows this as well and has promised a brand new CPU AI for KO 2004. Iand the rest of the betatesters will test it and we dont will leave this subject until the AI is really great.
A role play option. Does this mean play in position. That is allready possible in KO 2002 patch 1.33 but the speedsystem make it not work as good as in Player Manager. This is something that I will talk about in the beta testing as well.
If you want slower pace why dont you choose medium or slow speed?
I though reckon alot of people complain about the gamespeed and I think the default speed should be medium speed. The most guys in here dont agree with me though. Nowadays I also play with medium speed. The game becomes so much more full of tactics, nervous behaviours
and you actually have time to think in different situations.
About the manager part I probably cant help you though. This has been discussed and Steve will have one specific game for the manager part, Ultimate Player Manager.
Over all I agree on what you say.
thanx for sharing. The people that have been very very disappointed with KO 2002 havent mentioned there problems with the game before. thanx for doing that.
any other proposals to improve the game???
