If you are looking for a football simulator and enjoy football, DO NOT BUY THIS GAME. It is completely unrealistic and appears to have been designed by American gamers who have no idea how football is played and want every game to be a high scoring affair full of tricks, flicks and skills. Earlier editions of FIFA closer resembled the game, but newer releases take you further away from reality to the point where you watch what happens with disbelief. Defending is atrocious and player actions often so far from reality you wonder what was going on in design and testing. Even my 8 year old thinks the game is unrealistic.
Basically it is for gamers who want to show off their skills with a controller and it doesn't matter what the game is. It has precious little to do with football any more.
