I found it hard to pinpoint how exactly this iteration differed from FIFA 09 and I concluded in all honestly that it's mostly not. Who cares about 360 dribbling? The teams are more or less the same, with some having more inflated ratings than they should (hint hint...Liverpool).
I don't play Manager mode or anything other than Online or Tournament so this review is based on those modes or just general gaming. I was a fervent follower of 09 so my learning curve on 10 wasn't as steep as it would for a novice, meaning: you will find this game challenging if you're not familiar with controls of previous FIFA iterations on PS3.
All in all I understand that EA needs to make money by coming with bogus useless features to entice people to pay for newer versions of the game but really I'll say it again, this game isn't that much of a departure from 09 to justify a $60 price tag. In fact I bought this game but found myself going back to FIFA 09. In the end I had to buy it coz all my friends have migrated to it.
Play FIFA 10 long enough and you'll start believing it's the greatest soccer game ever...yay same thing you thought for 09 and you know what they say in psychology...familiarity breeds acceptance...
Here are some pros and cons
- Most Fifa 09 bugs/glitches (scoring midfield etc) fixed - Players motion is more fluid, believable - Game in general is more fluid, less "cut scenes" for free kicks, referees carding etc. - Practice arena for set plays etc.

even better then the last, i dont know how PES 10 can out do this game, graphics are great and the movement of the players is more realistic. i dont know about that other review stating that its hard to play in easy mode, maybe that persons a rookie, im a fifa vet and i can say that its not that much harder then fifa 09, and i play in the hardest setting, if you love the fifa games then this is a must have if you are new to it enjoy it its a great game, GO CHELSEA FC!

Fifa 10 didn't surprise me!! It was so cool!!! So much better than 09. You can score from outside the eighteen if you are in a good position. The new created player thing ( virtual pro) is awsome!!! You can get stuff for him like long sleeves and gloves and other cool things.manager mode is pretty good.I love manager mode I played it all the time,but then I got Call of juarez: Bound in blood. If you were thinking of renting or buying this game get it it is a fantastic game,and if you like creating a player go to virtual pro!!! The set piece that you can make is so cool.you can make them your own how ever you like. the graphics are so cool Once my mom and my grandma came in and they said hey look soccer is on
