Wow what can I say, last years was a step down, this years is a big step forward! The game play itself is finally catching up to Pro Ev but its the extras that really push it above the competition this year. Be a pro is a wonderful idea that seems to work better than other sports titles "be a superstar theme" and it seems like every game now has to come with file sharing, so after you score that memorable goal against your best friend, you can record and let him (or her) see it over and over again. After last year I never thought I'd play FIFA again, thank you EA for getting it back on track.

A few glitches, but definitely WORTH THE WAIT!

The most anticipated soccer game has yet hit the shelves again. And EA did what their predecessors have failed to accomplish over the years. The biggest improvement is the gameplay that most people complain about, not to mention its arch rival PES/Winning eleven that is a top notch on this. But EA is no longer behind, the AI adapts to your style of gameplay, and the ball physics is as smooth as possible..Though the referee, more often than not, might have swallowed his whistle and have missed a bunch of obvious calls from CPU’s rough tackles. It seems that the CPU gets twice as more calls against you.But other than that, it’s a bit of a steep learning curve but rewarding in the end.No more scoring 7-0 against the CPU (which I’ve accomplished many times on WE/PES). Graphics and presentation are also very strong with stunning visuals,though the frame rate sometimes suffers on replays. One thing I noticed though is that referees are introduced before the game and suddenly disappear in the game. EA should have just not bothered introducing them if that’s the case. In-game camera is limited, and would be nice if they added a few angles and the ability to zoom in/out.Aside from the ghost referees and limited camera mode, there are a bunch of stadiums that are missing unfortunately, like Real Madrid’s Santiago Bernabeu and a few other stadiums.Oh well…Sound in the game isn’t too bad at all, with soundtracks that are more pleasant to the ears and crowd chants and in-game conversation are more prevalent all throughout. While British duo Martin Tyler and Andy Gray provide adequate, if uninspired commentary. There’s a lot more in the game that will keep you busy for quite a time like the ‘Be A Pro Mode’ in which EA kind of experimented that actually works and fun to play. Add that to the many leagues and countless licensed team and players that will for sure definitely kill some of your time throughout the rest of the season.
