Living in North America, when I read Football, I think of American Football, not Soccer, and so I was surprised when I read that LoveFOOTBALL was a soccer game. Then I found out that LoveFOOTBALL is Namco’s attempt at getting a good position in the Soccer video game business. What is the big feature that makes this an Xbox 360 title?
Because it’s for the Xbox 360, the game can’t just be a normal soccer title. No, following what is becoming the latest trend in gaming announcements, LoveFOOTBALL must have some type of next-gen feature that would be utterly impossible to support on previous systems. The feature? The camera. Rather than having a floating camera showing all the players on the field at one time, LoveFOOTBALL’s camera will always be placed close up and directly behind the controlled character as if one was playing a 3rd person action game.
