If you are a FIFA 2010 fan, you must buy this "upgrade". The game is not perfect (as all Fifa's, when they come out)but I have to say that the engine is the same as FIFA 2010 but with improvements already. Sounds like a presentation of the new 2011 version. But my favorite option on this game is the world cup challenge on-line (where you can be champion of the world playing with other real players on-line) or the head to head matchs, where you can improve and go on higher leagues... it is September and there are more than 3000 users per day playing this game on-line... a must buy
Its amazing how much FIFA game has grown. The technology has grown alot over the years. Fifa world cup South Africa is definately a must have game for those who love their soccer. I found the game play excellent, it is not too fast like Pro Evo Soccer 2010. The graphic is amazing. With the crowd animation and also couches on the sideline and the players face. You even got the vuvuzelas!!!! (Although I turned that off) Personally I found this to be a great game if you want to experience the world cup tournament. Otherwise FIFA 2010 is equally as good.
although you cant pick club teams, this one is so much better because it really feels like the world cup! COME ON ENGLAND!!! .... sorry about that. seriously, if you like fifa 10, you need to try this
There is nothing to say.. Oh maybe that this game is just perfect. Look have you ever play a game with the same number of team? I don't think so...But Fifa2010 is here don't forget. if you wanna buy a game take this one it's the best game i ever played. For me it'll be 5/5 Perfect Walid
The world cup game is a must buy fo any fan of the fifa series it is a great improvement on Fifa 10. Yet introduction on managers on the sidelines is a great thing, i would like to see more personalised manager actions in fifa 11. The reintroduction of the challenge scheme is a good one. I just can not fault ea on this online works fine, with a good set of trophies, new 2 button control for beginers and a new penalty system, this game is a must buy, fully desrving of 5/5. One last thing with 199 countries the game is not just an add on to fifa 10, its a good game in its own right. BRILLANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
