    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 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. Collapse

    Winning 11 plays better still. you would think that since they have all the fifa rights for this games they would put more emphasis on matching or become better than the game play of winning 11. come on EA get your people together and do top quality soccer games it's time already!

  1. Surely everybody knows the score by now: EA ever so slightly update FIFA. It gets new stats, new players, new kits and slightly better graphics whilst remaining pretty much the same game it always has been.
  2. A fun football simulation for newcomers and the best FIFA of recent years. Even so, competitor "Pro Evolution" still has the virtual World Cup firmly in its grasp.
  3. The classic moment section, which features 125 well-known situations, is one of several nice touches in this game.
