This is by far the best world cup EA has created in their FIFA World Cup series. The atmosphere, graphics, and user interface are much improved over last world cup.
First, the positives:
The game play is pretty realistic. The defense is much harder to break down than in previous versions, which seems to keep the scoreline in check.
The online mode is awesome. You can actually pick a team and challenge other teams in world cup.
As far as the graphics go, I believe they're pretty strong. Stadiums, game action, and atmosphere, everything looks good. The crowds make you feel you are actually in the stadium.
Having 199 teams is a huge plus. You can even pick Afghanistan. LOL
Having two Button game play is a great addition for new comers in game.
Penalty kicks have improved and they are alot harder to score.
Btw the Goal looks bigger.
You still can`t play against friends in 2 vs 2 match up.
There are no clubs in it, but that doesn't bother me since I have Fifa 09 and Fifa 10.
Overall. it's a great game. If you want more features and clubs go buy Fifa 10, but if you want better graphics more International teams get this. This
game comes out every 4 years so I didn't mind paying for it and enjoy having my hometown team in there. So if you are hardcore fan of soccer or your
country didn`t make it to world cup buy this. You won't regret.
