This is an excellent improvement from the last FIFA games. I really like the new features like online and Be Like a Pro. I was also amazed by the short loading screens and what makes it even better is that while it loads you can take some practice shots with Ronaldindho. The graphics are also amazing. The realism of the crowd has increased greatly too. Depending on what country your playing in and what team is "home" the crowd will cheer their cheer in that language. I realized this when playing in the bundesliga and I was facing Bremen away. The crowd would cheer the popular "Auf gets -TEAM NAME- schiest ein tor!" with the tone and everything. I'm definitely "Keep"ing "It" from GameFly. I highly recommend this video game for any fan of soccer to occupy their time when their favorite team isn't playing (its practically like watching a real game with this level of realism).

The depth of this game is enough to amaze everyone from the hardcore addict to ones like me who mostly only get in to international play. I was impressed with how many teams there are. The controls were excellent as well. My one complaint is with the online aspect. It always took forever, most times 5-10 mins to get into a match and I couldn't figure out why. No problem w/ my connection... it just wouldn't connect w/ the other player. For someone like me who loves to play online against human opponents, once you actually get into a match, it's amazing how intense the game can be.

Fans of Soccer (futbol) will love the authenticity of this game. Just like a real match the scoring is low and the defense is rather difficult. The be a pro mode (where you play as one individual player and have to stick to your position) is fun and really mixes things up from other titles.

The main problem i have with this game lies in one of the things hardcore soccer fans will love...the difficulty. The computer AI never commits a foul against the user as well as plays extremely tough defense. While this may be a nice challenge to hardcore soccer fans, those of us who like the appeal of setting up goal after goal will lose interest quickly. ( I know i did).
Also the manual move stick where you can do a variety of fakes and ball moves just don't blend well into the game. I found them insanely difficult to pull off.

Despite my negative analysis, this game is visually appealing. It also boats a complete roster of teams and leagues. The gameplay is manageable if you love a tough 1 - 0 match. For arcade and high schoring affairs turn elsewhere as this title will not quench your goal thirst.
