Xbox 360 - FIFA World Cup 2010 Game Review



FIFA WORLD CUP 2010 - What a great game.

The majority of you reading this article will have probably played or own a copy of FIFA 2010 and wonder if it is worth buying what is an extension of this game. Well I am in that category and I fully recommend purchasing it.


The first thing that I was struck by was the amount of teams they have managed to pack into this game, you can literally pick anyone in the world to play with should you want to, whether you are a resident of Andorra or Zambia you can pick your native/favourite country and go for glory in a World Cup Campaign.


For the rest of you glory hunters (like me) you will more likely pick from Spain, Brazil, Germany, England or Holland etc.

The guys at EA Sports have really worked hard improving faces, stadiums, fans and the all round general authentic feel we all look for in each of the FIFA releases.

Note: You now get managers shown at moments during the game gesturing instructions as you would have in a real football match! Mr Capello looks as mafia-ish as ever on the sidelines in his England Suit.


I have played other FIFA spin offs and this by far the best one they have produced and one I will continue to play when the World cup is concluded.

Game Play:


FIFA 10 is the best football game of all time, however this is FIFA 10 on Adrenaline. The Game play is quicker which makes for more fun game, but before you think they have gone all arcade, don't worry. Its just that bit quicker and on top of that the players who are a little bit faster that others in the real game reflect this in the game.

I.e Cristiano Ronaldo will outpace a slower player like John Terry.


Stadiums:

WOW, Feels like being there. You have the graphics which are always outstanding but they are better than ever here. All of the world cup stadiums are included and the vuvuzela's are blowing as you soak up the atmosphere.


Game Modes:

Well you can go one of three ways... I like to go on Xbox Live and beat most everyone else which is fun as you probably know they generally get annoyed and starting fouling etc.

Another way is to go straight into a tournament Vs computer with the team of your choice.

Final way is to start a full campaign which takes you back to 2008 and give you a chance to get any team to the world cup finals (i am currently Rep of Ireland) as I want to make amends for there disappointment of being denied a place at the world cup.

I rate the Full campaign as the best route as it gives you some sort of satisfaction to get your minnows to the finals against superior opposition. We all love an underdog!


Celebrations:

Ha! By far my favourite is the moon walk, yes you read correctly. There are a host of new dances and slides in this FIFA edition and it all adds to the fun of course!

Verdict: A must buy for any FIFA game player and would highly recommend the game-play as it is a sign of what's to come in FIFA 2011 you can be sure.
