ONLINE GAMEPLAY IS AMAZING, BUT IS SLIGHTLY SLOWER THAN I WOULD LIKE. IF YOU WHERE TO MIX 08 GAME SPEED AND 09 EA SERVER QUALITY THAN IT WOULD BE THE BEST EA SPORTS GAME EVER MADE TOPPING EVEN MADDEN.
I WOULD LIKE TO SEE A BREAKAWAY MODE FOR 2010 AND ALL THE KINKS FROM 08,09 FIXED AND APPLIED TO THE SAME PLAY STYLE.
ONE LAST THING I AM A CLASSIC CONTROL FAN THE DEFAULT IS JUST TO MUCH ALL OVER I WOULD LIKE REVAMPED CONTROLS THAT MIMIC THE CLASSIC BUT CAN CONTROL ALL FEATURES SUCH STICK LIFT AND BODY CHECKING WITHOUT IT BEING A PENALTY.

I like the play of the game. Passing and shooting is realistic with the need to aim your shots and create plays. The only thing I do not like is that you use the right stick to check, poke check, shoot and pass so it is really hard to crash the net and shoot or pass without taking a lot of tripping and cross checking penalties if there is traffic around because you use the right stick for all of them. Other than that the play is pretty realistic and a lot of fun to play.
