Use the 3D, corner view in TV mode, with some widgets on. couldn't go back anymore to only 2D.

3D! Gives you a lot better unsight to the game than 2D or commentary!

Can we add the point again that it is a view, not an engine.

The engine is the same for all ways you view the game, whether it be commentary, 2d or 3d.

Personally, I also don't get how the game "isn't ready" for the 3d engine. Please elaborate.

i always use 3d, it's much easier to pick out where to make tactical changes.

I always use 3d. I have from the start even when it ran slowly on my previous poor laptop.

On a sidenote though I found it a coincidence that I was about the name the thread I just created the exact same name as you have named this. :p

3D elevated, classic view. I don't use the TV view.

I play with 2D view and then watch all goal replays in 3D elevated. Both in TV View.

How? I don't understand how 2D can be much better... It's just the way you view it and surely seeing height is important.

I watch it in 2D. I don't think the engine is good enough yet for 3D. It just doesn't look good, and makes the game more unrealistic. It doesn't look believable.

It is exactly the same as the 2D one, just the players are actually... Well players.

Sorry...by engine I meant graphics. The look of the players is abit shoddy. It's like watching stick men hopping around the pitch.

2D

This may sound strange but i can somehow imagine the 2D being 'real' football more than the 3D, the 3D feels like im playing a really dated videogame

Taver
25-01-2009, 14:52
yeah the 3d is shoddy, for the spec it needs to run it's really poor, considering ive run much better 3d games on lower spec machines. I still prefer watching in 3d though, as i get a better feel for how the tactics are working.

What?! What the hell are you saying?

If you're saying that it's an opinion that 3D and 2D run on the same engine, just different ways of viewing the action, then that's complete ********. They are the same engine.

Yeah it is a bit, but it will get better, just like the 2d.

That's an interesting point in truth. Your imagination does fill in the gaps a lot with the 2D view.

2D; just so I can fill in the match engine faults with my imagination. With 3D, you can struggle.

I think that the 3d is poor on mac. Thus, prefer 2d!

3D is just painful on the eye and really highlights all the bugs and unrealistic aspects of the match engine

2D for me all day long

2D, I tried 3D but I couldn't get into the game with it as it was jolty and slow.

2D has made me enjoy the game again, although I will consider using 3D if it is significantly improved for future editions.

3D all the time. Can't stand 2D anymore and have never used the just text commentry since FM06

I've tried the 3D, and I found it appalling, especially if SI allegedly been working on it for years. However, credit to them for providing the former ways of viewing the matches (commentary,2D), as it shows quite a high level of respect for their fans.

It's a transition that has to be made, I just feel disappointed for graphics of such sort (not expecting Pro Evo style, but at least something with more dignity). But the only way is up now, and if they keep providing the 2D option in future versions, they can take whatever time they need to evolve the 3D resources in the meantime, as I'm sure that who is already pleased with it now will be pleased then, and who isn't it's just a matter of time until they are, like myself.

I dare not try the 3D version as i don't want to cringe with embarassement. It's not fair to compare it to 3D sims like PES or FIFA but thats what i'll end up doing anyway! I'll stick with the 2D version for a couple of versions until it's got good reviews.

The 3D is jerky for me but I wouldn't go back to 2D now, just as when 2D came out I wouldn't go back to commentary only. Progress isn't always 100% smooth, but it is progress nonetheless.

3D elevated, Im loving it at the moment although I agree it is really spec hungry and should be better for the specs it requires. I do belive it will improve with subsequent versions

Yeah, I saw that...
The only thing about it, is it a skin, or is it just purely for 2D view? =)
I was going to download it, but thought it was a skin...

Purely for the 2D view in classic mode, it will work on any skin and is easily removable if it is not to your taste (read the readme).
