Maybe this title is a 8 or 9 if it's the only soccer game you have played. But after playing FIFA 11 for the PS3 (or XBOX360), it obvious the difference in hardware. I have FIFA 11 for the PS3 but figured I would rent it for the Wii for my kids. Even they were disgusted. I know this review should be about how the game performs and not how it compares to other consoles. But it feels like a PS1 game.

i have been a fan of the EA fifa series for years and this game has really made me lose a lot of the respect i had for the series. this game makes even the simplest phases of the game (i.e passing) quite difficult. as someone who was able to win some ultimate team tournaments on legend difficulty in fifa 10, i find it nearly impossible to score goals on the professional difficulty in the new game unless playing with the great teams in the game. i played an entire season in mls and every game was 1-0 or 0-0. completely unrealistic. now there are certainly some improvements including goal celebrations with teammates, shielding with strength and it is easier to defend than the last game, but this game is incredibly frustrating to score goals if you are not one of the top teams, and that is lame. also a friend of mine and i had trouble with multiplayer where every 2 or 3 games the game would freeze when loading on both of our systems meaning it was the game at fault. i am not one to usually complain, but i have been totally disappointed with this game after anticipating its release for months. and at this point there is no ultimate team option which was probably the best thing about fifa 10. my recommendation is to skip the purchase of this game and wait till next year. shame on you EA Sports.
