Okay, so the menu's are 10 times better and there is a lot to do. Then you play online. Anything you thought you liked about football literally flys out the window. People have become apparent to the 4-3-2-1 formation. Which means sit back as far as they can get, press R1 and make the computer do all the work. Get the ball, and have 3 attackers vs your few defenders because the computer likes sending the wing backs to go walkies. This happens, over and over again. So please tell me, where is the realism is such things? I will never go to such tactics because I play football, and well Fifa how it is supposed to.
Game play wise, it is very sound. Again, until online is involved. When it's hard to select players, referees are very dodgy, Younis Kaboul is faster then Theo Walcott..?! and many many more reasons. So, do buy Fifa, it is a class game. Just stay well away from the idiots online who are single-handedly ruining the game with a flaw they found, and EA don't want to listen to.
