sure soccer fanatics may love the game due to the attention to real life player details and what not but besides that there really is not point to want to continue playing this game unless you are with some buddies. This game lacks a huge and what i feel essential part of any arcade style sports game should have, a single player career mode in which you make a player in your likeness or whatever way you choose. For some reason EA's division that has been making these games has really dropped the ball lately. After playing NFL tour i really had almost zero hope for this game and my lack of hope was sadly confirmed. Sure the game play has remained the same in that there are ridiculous ball control and dribbling skills and tricks but once you start playing you loose the urge to continue with no character creation, upgrade or even outfit changing system. In my game EA has really missed the mark with this game.
Overall this game brings excitement for all soccer lovers. From the character design to the field designs. From the start there is a rush of excitement going through you when you start your first match. It might seem simple in the beginning but the game gets harder as you go through the levels. Playing against the CP is fun but playing online is even greater. The lack of more fields to play on is a negative and the lack of a career mode or world cup mode is very disappointing. But overall this game will entertain you for a week or so after it kind of gets repetitive.

the game is good for soccer fanatics who actually know the characters and teams, Dida the goaltender for Brazil is a little on the chubby side, and Peter Crouch is a this slim giant. If you know about soccer this game is going to be the game for you. But other than the jokes the game is pretty good, the graphics are pretty good and it is fun to play. It is kinda like all the other fifa street's but I like this one the best it is definitely a good rent or buy.
