Review It's tough for sports game developers to outshine previous efforts substantially enough to emerge as something special. NHL 09 was able to do it, NBA Live 10 was able to do it, and now the folks at EA Canada have miraculously created a FIFA title that is markedly better than the impressive previous effort...When it comes to sports games people are always crying out for some genre-defining feature addition or a graphical upgrade that blows the doors off of anything that you've seen before. FIFA 10 is devoid of those giant leaps forward, yet still manages to impress in every one of the traditional aspects of the sport...Graphically FIFA 10 has made small adjustments to what we've seen in the past. Detail on the field holds up to the level that you expect from the series with the greatest improvement being the almost total removal of the stuttering that used to plague instant replays. The framerate also holds up well during Be A Pro gameplay, something that was a problem last year. I noticed a few physical inaccuracies, but they were very few and don't dampen the experience much...Aside from the usually spot-on commentary, you'll want to crank up your speakers to hear the pumping stadium environments. Spend five minutes in a game and you'll be able to tell who the home team is and who is away. They aren't quite as boisterous as real crowds, but they're close...FIFA 10 is the definitive soccer experience if there ever was one. It packages a list of modes that perform in wonderful harmony with one another thanks to Virtual Pro and the fact that the gameplay lives up to this praise should only sweeten the deal. Taking the game online is as awesome as it was last year and with Live Season 2.0 kicking off once the US version ships on October 20, soccer diehards are going to have even more to sink their teeth into. If you were a past soccer fan and are looking to get back into the swing of things or if you've been eagerly awaiting FIFA 10's release, you absolutely, positively will not be disappointed.

Review Soccer is, without a doubt, the most popular sport in the world. While it hasn't gained much traction in the US, the sport inspires a sense of devotion and fervor that borders on the religious in other parts of the globe. So it's no surprise that FIFA 10 is breaking sales records in other countries. But the game is so good that it just might change a few minds here in the States as well. Read on to see why FIFA 10 deserves a place in your lineup; you just might walk away a convert...There's a senseless yet subconscious question we ask ourselves when we experience a video game that's incredibly realistic and enjoyable; we can't help but think, "How can this get any better?" I first asked myself this after experiencing the perfection of MLB 09: The Show, and now I'm asking myself the same question after experiencing FIFA Soccer 10...And even though I don't need the vindication, it's nice to know that the world seems to agree with me. Within its first week of release, FIFA Soccer 10 sold 1.7 million copies in Europe, making it the fastest-selling sports game and EA's biggest European launch. That right there should give you a basic illustration of this iteration's excellence...Needless to say, FIFA 10 is superb. The more I type of this review, the more I wish I was playing it right now. I feel pretty confident in saying that it is the most enjoyable sports game I've ever played. It has the depth that diehard and sim fans require while also offering up the option for a simplistic experience that casual fans can enjoy, and with a ton of new goodies, FIFA Soccer 10 is surefire winner all around. Fans of sports games definitely have to buy it, even if they don't have a strong interest in soccer--it's just that good.

Features
360 Degree Dribbling The first-ever true 360 degree dribbling system in a football game gives you precise control to skillfully play spaces between defenders that previously were not possible.
Advanced Positioning Defenders multi-task & play the pitch more intelligently by covering dangerous spaces left by out-of-position teammates. In attack, players analyze space more effectively, curve their runs to stay onside, create.
Authentic Manager Mode With over 50 improvements, FIFA 10's new Manager Mode is as close as you can get to running a team without actually being named to the job.
Authentic Shooting Refinements to the shooting system & tweaks to the ball physics create a wider, more realistic variety of shots that enhance the exhilaration of scoring.
Authentic Transfers Truly realistic transfers are made using logic based on multiple decision factors including finance, prestige, career prospects, other players' involvement & competition from AI clubs.
Behavioral Intelligence Improvements Players are more intelligent with more authentic behavior. Players now avoid passes not intended for them, avoid blocking teammate shots, & throw themselves in the way of attacker's shots in defense.
Believable Player Development Just like on an actual team, the growth curve of your star players is based on multiple factors such as their playing environment & the demands placed on them.
Customizable Set Pieces Design & record your very own dead ball moves on the training ground for use on match day to outwit your opponent. You have complete control over your players, with the ability to assign a specific role & movement to every outfield player on your team one at a time, & then combine them for the perfect set piece.
Immersive Football World Manager Mode takes you deep inside the world of football with formations & squads determined by match importance, real-time week-by-week transfers & transfer event summaries that promote bidding wars.
Improved Trapping Intelligence Players now have a better awareness of where the easiest, most natural trapping position is so they can get the ball on the ground & under control easier and earlier.
Match Realism Calculated minute-by-minute, Manager Mode lets you make decisions based on your team's strengths & weaknesses including player performance, strengths of lines & strategic formations.
More Accurate Passing Players better analyze space, resulting in pinpoint passes that give their receivers more options & time to outrun defensive pressure.
New Practice Arena Work on individual skills in a fully featured practice mode before stepping on the pitch. Select exactly how many attackers & defenders you want in play, & practice set pieces.
Player Urgency Improved Urgency AI logic, with over 50 new movement cycles, delivers more responsive positioning so your players stay focused on the ball & move at a speed appropriate to the action.
Refined Goalkeeping Intelligence Various improvements mean that goalkeepers now have a better perception of where to intercept loose balls & how urgently to do so, resulting in a more responsive and powerful rushing system. New animation warping technology provides game-realistic goalkeeper positioning & momentum, allowing for more variety in scoring. Refinements to the current goalkeeper behaviors, adding some new behaviors (like swatting the ball from the goal line) & general AI enhancements will improve his effectiveness across the board.
Responding to Gamer Feedback With over 250 million games played by the FIFA community, listening to the feedback & addressing gamer frustration has become a key part of the FIFA strategy. Better balance on lofted through balls; improved goalkeeper intelligence; more realistic shooting physics with less shots hitting woodwork; realistic sprinting & movement animation; refined off-side & advantage rules; & a more immersive football experience through continuous play & quick free kicks are just a few of the issues raised & addressed in FIFA 10.
Skilled Dribbling Advanced animation warping technology lets skilled players face defenders & maneuver around them with highly-responsive lateral dribbling, just like the game's legends.
Varied Defending Options Slide tackle targeting has been improved so good players have more reach & avoid tackling through the dribbler. Better effort clearance logic gives defenders more options when attempting to get a foot on the ball before an attacker. Effort, such as sliding to block crosses & overhead kick clearances, will give the defenders more tools in order to prevent goal scoring opportunities. Balanced by less forgiving standing tackles, defending is now a more tactical skill in FIFA 10.
