Clarence Yiaw, 19, an avid gamer of FIFA Online 2 in Singapore, was exhilarated when news leaked out that his favourite game would soon be releasing a long needed enhancement to the graphics. “I really enjoy the game play and the nature of FIFA Online 2 but when newer games like FIFA 10 and Winning Eleven were released, I felt that FIFA Online 2 lost out in terms of realism. I’m very happy that this upgrade will be done soon.”
Chew Hoe Seng, better known as [TtwoWInDsVIn], the Champion of Malaysia’s “Score with SMM Hyundai Motor Cup Qualifier” to his Malaysian fans, also expressed his excitement at the upcoming visual update from a competitive gamer’s perspective. “The natural look-good factor will draw more audiences and interest in the game.”
General Manager for FIFA Online 2 Jonathon Sze was very proud at this latest development. “As an online game, FIFA Online 2 is capable of constantly updating newer technologies into the game. The visual engine upgrade is a good example of that. It helps us to remain competitive with our rivals too.”
