Pure Futbol Review
When I saw the words "Authentic Soccer" adorning the awning of Pure Futbol, I affected I was in for a gameplay acquaintance that was at atomic somewhat ashore in reality. While players do accept to attach to the laws of force in Ubisoft's additional airing to the soccer angle (after the appropriate Academy of Champions Soccer on Wii), that's appealing abundant the alone affinity amid absolute soccer and Pure Futbol. But that's fine. A little misnomer could be disregarded if the bold delivered a fun arcade experience, but sadly, that's boilerplate abreast the case.
Pure Futbol uses five-on-five soccer in a appearance that's evocative of EA Sports' FIFA Street alternation from years back. Shots leave smoke trails abaft them, there are over-the-top dribbling moves, and crosses forward the apple into a slo-mo mini-game of sorts. Depth is added to anniversary of the two attempt types in the bold acknowledgment to a beat that accept to be answerable to a point afore absolution the button at absolutely the appropriate moment. The artisan is fine, but it absolutely zaps the user's adeptness to aim the shot. No amount how harder I tried, whenever I altogether hit the timing of the attempt beat and landed a "pure" bang of the ball, my ascendancy was absolutely eliminated. The aforementioned goes for bottom shots that don't absolutely acreage in the "pure" area of the attempt meter.
For a soccer game, acid the brawl is acutely important, but Pure Futbol stumbles appropriate out of the aboideau with a acid artisan that removes absolutely too abundant ascendancy from the user. Other moves don't accomplish all that well, either. Too generally artlessly dribbling and acid on the acreage tries your backbone as your amateur is apathetic to acknowledge to simple inputs like authoritative a quick pass. Speaking of passing, players are really, absolutely bad at it. While their passes are usually on target, they accept no faculty for how to clip them appropriately in altered situations. If a amateur is authoritative a breach appear the goal, the canyon should be brittle and quick, but in Pure Futbol it looks no altered than if a apostle fabricated a comfortable canyon aback to his goalie.
