first of all play were really good with my pre order as i got home from work on the day of release and it was there waiting for me! so i whipped it into the xbox and have so far loved it!!
the new tackling system is a breath of fresh air! gone are the days of holding down A and waiting for your CB to catch up with a much faster striker to steal the ball! now you have to really time your challenges or you will be exposed!! your player will do a useless lunge if timed incorecctly and the other player will just casually stroll past into the space. being able to send an AI player to jockey the person on the ball while you mark someone else is a great thing as the computer AI has been vastly improved and they make some very good runs.
There have been a few noticable changes in the career mode! the addition of deadline day is a nice thing!! so over dramatic and tense just like the real life version. the clock stops every couple of hours to give you time to try and bring in that last player and so you can see where the other big moves are happening. (on my game 180mil was spent on deadline day!!!
the quick throw option is a nice little addition.. speeding up the game a bit and can be a good chance to score a cheeky goal while the other team tries to get back.
online is still as fun as ever! the new head to head season looks like some fun! giving you a target amount of points needed to get promoted in 10 games against other players... so you could be the team that stops them getting promoted or even sends them down a division!! the new tackling system shows online! a human player is very quick to pick up on the space created by a misplaced tackle!.
i think this is the best in the series and would recomend it to any FIFA fan! there have been vast improvements on the old FIFA games and i think theyre onto a winner with this one! easily give them 9.5/10.. (would of been 10 out of 10... but there doesnt seem to be any new stadiums that ive noticed.. and i like a change of scenery now and again)
