So EA continue their production of the FIFA series, and it's been an important year. Instead of football fans being 50/50 between FIFA and PES, this year FIFA 10 obliterated PES and has taken world domination.
FIFA 10 is quite similar to 09, except 'skilled dribbling' has been introduced which I don't really see a difference. In all fairness, the facial graphics of the players are terrible, and not very accurate with jaggy egdes. The commentators repeat the same thing over and over again! 'Tevez with his bulldog like approach' every single time he touches the ball?
I particularly like the Virtual Pro, and Pro Club Championship mode. Virtual Pro actually made me play Be a Pro mode, which I hated on 09, but this year I have an aim and something to accomplish by having your own pro. Also introduces some lovely competition between friends to see who is better! Pro Club Championship is probably my favourite mode, in which you join/create a pro club, and play with friends or total randomers, but either way it's great fun playing against other pro clubs to march your way up the rankings.
The AI isn't spot on, and often runs directly out of play, or will circle the ball rather than playing football. You'd think that they would have developed the AI, considering the coding/programming, and game engines out there. Personally I think 09 AI is better.
10 introduces realistic physical player attributes, now the stronger player will fight off the weaker player, but due to a big boo boo at the developers, this new feature is pretty much pointless because of the referees - who love their whistle!! The biggest down point of this game is the referees. They give free kicks for absolutely anything, and blatant fouls, i.e two footed drop kick to the face, will be ignored.
FIFA 10 pretty much has everything ((except Ultimate Team (for now)), I cannot think of anything to add to the game for FIFA 11. I think the game face idea is brilliant, however it doesn't work! When it finally does the graphics is naff, everyone looks the same.
Any football fan should have this, it's just a must have, like any FIFA installment.
