yes yes yes, now lets get it out the way, THIS IS NOT JUST AN UPDATE FIFA 10 TO RIP PEOPLE OFF!
this is simply the best football game on any console, any version you will play.
This is soo in depth authentic and just massive that it could not just be DLC for £15-£20. This is a brand new football game in its own right, and should be treated like that.
The most important thing about any footy game is the actual gameplay, and this is the best part about 2010 World Cup. It is spot on.
It removes every annoying thing that fifa 10 had, from offsides all the time, and in turn players movements are better, the players in the middle and general build up play can be smooth and you feel you have time on the pitch to execute passing play. It improves player likeness's, pitches, stadia everything. I have scored screamers, tap in's, flukes, and uploaded them to fifa online hub. It is better than fifa 10. The AI is so perfect this time around. I hate playing AI on football games, but this is the first time it feels real and authentic.
If you play a weaker team they are indeed weaker, stronger team are stronger. Sounds simply but for me they have never got it right until now. Online play is smooth, fun and brill.
I have played as everyone, from Honduros to England, Wales, Cameroon etc. I am currently Ecudor.
I can beat the bigger team even though I am say Wales, the online world cup, is just fantastic, must have been through it about 20 times now, lol, but its just so absorbing, realistic. I have yet to win the online world cup, and so far really have avoided being the bigger teams for a challenge, and its enjoyable, it really is.
You can do captain your country, a be like a pro mode, with up to four mates on a local 360.
There are squad updates, will be future dlc, there is also option to edit teams yourself.
You can replay famous stories and try to change history, these are very enjoyable. I am still to correct Henry's hand of cheat, but I will.
Draw backs are few and far between, but I would say the penalty changes are to drastic and make it very hard to score from them. You now have a up and down bar to stop the pointer in the green bit, alongside that you must try and aimyour shot, aim to far( and you CANT see your aim) and you just slide over or smash it wide. For me they should have the pressure green bit, but should hhave left the aim part out.
Another draw back for me is the pool of players. Now I do hope the squad updates deal with this, which I think they may, but with England I feel alot more players should have been added, ie KING DAWSON, A JOHNSON etc.
I would also like a save squad selection featuer, so as not to have to spend a few mins before everygame switching players(online play)
The game is so true and authentic to the world cup it is unreal. Gone are the boring menus of fifa. Introduced are bright colours, themed world cup music, news menus, in game scoreline, news tickers, just every thing to make you feel you are the boss of a country at the world cup.
Overall this game is a 9 out of 10 for me. I love it. played it tonnes already, and will be playing it alot more in the future.
If carlsberg made football games it would be 2010 FIFA WORLD CUP
