    Great graphics as usual; EA still has the licenses to seem like they control the world; but they just don't get it. Winning Eleven still holds the edge on realistic gameplay (although no licenses) while FIFA has stayed in the same stagnant place as they were four years ago. What starts out with a lot of flash ends with a whimper. Their choices for classic players is limited at most (no Beckenbauer) as well as classic all-time squads. They still have the most in-depth managerial system but that doesn't make up for the poor, redundant game play where you can figure out the patterns in five minutes. I scored with a player 9 times from the same spot just inside of the penalty area. Fix the game guys, or at least contact me so I can help you figure out what to do correctly. Full Review »
