It is more challenging like it is harder to score goals and you really have to think about how you are going to score as you cant just ping pong the ball like in Fifa 10.
The graphics are cool. All the top footballers really look like that person in real life and the stadiums are really nice to.
ONLINE IS A JOKE!!!!! I hear so many people who are having problems like myself. Just go to the Fifa11 forum to find out more. There are so many bugs and connection problems it is unreal. Sometimes it takes me more then 10mins to try and find a player online. Even if I get to play a game, most of the time it says I have lost connection or quite a few people quit on me which is annoying.
DO NOT BOTHER WITH THE CAREER MODE!!!!! So many bugs its unreal. You always play the same teams in the cups each year. At the end of March the screen freezes so you have to go to the calendar and sim the match instead. The board give you very unrealistic targets to meet each season and even if you DONT meet your targets you still get rewarded for a job well done.
The commentators always say the same thing and get quite a few things wrong. The referee makes a few mistakes aswell but that happens in real life.
YOU CAN NEVER OUT RUN A DEFENDER. The defenders will always run as fast as any of your strikes etc etc. Know I know some people were complaining in Fifa 10 then it was to easy to run past people but this is the complete opposite.
Oh and if your one who always plays it online and you are thinking of buying this game no one chips the ball when you are 1 on 1 with the goalkeeper as it is to hard. THE CHIP SHOT IS NOW HEADERS AND MANY PEOPLE USE THE 1 2 AND LOP THROUGH BALL ETC ETC. It all gets very boring after a while and is not a realistic football game at all. From my personal experience, EA has not done a good job on this game and you would not be missing much if you choose to go with another football game or just to save your hard earned cash.
