I have been buying every fifa game for the last few years, and I had no hesitation in trading fifa 10 in for this, and boy did the gamble pay off!
This game really is what the world cup is all about, and the atmosphere is captured beautifully.
Gameplay - much the same as fifa 10 really, which is of course superb.
Online - I'm totally addicted to Battle of the nations online world cup. You play a complete world cup online against other gamers and earn battle of the nations points for your country, the winning nation to be announced after south africa. Just won my 4th cup, great fun.
Captain your country - offline mode like be a pro but aim for the manager to give you the arm band by controlling only one player earning points for how well you played moving from the B team to the starting 11. There is also a multiplayer mode to this too so you can race your mates for the arm band.
Road to qualifying - mini game tasks based on real scenarios, ok as a add on to main game.
Penalties - new method of taking them lets you stutter your run up like that t*sser Ronaldo, and also with a composure meter to time to perfection it takes more skill to score that perfect penalty but it feels a lot more satisfying when it hits the back of the net!
There is a globe on the main menu that you can just browse and it gives you facts about each country, including how well you have performed against players from that country online - bit sad but its a nice addition.
And there is the usual one player world cup and qualifying that you may expect and can play as about 200 countries.
Yes some may qustion buying another fifa game just for a 4 week competition, but I believe it is money very well spent and I love it!
Oh, and seeing Mr Cappello and other managers up and down the touch line giving instructions to the team is another nice addition, think they did this in the Euro 08 too.
I may have waffled, but what the hell, great game, Love fifia? Love South Africa 2010.
COME ON ENGLAND!!!
