  1. FIFA 10 is all the best a football fan could imagine, you simply have to have it. The score is the right prize for a nearly perfect game that deserves the right prize for the work done in the last years that brought the average arcade game of the past, to the nearest thing to real football actually available. You'll stop playing FIFA 10 only when FIFA 11 will be on shelves. Great job EA, great job Moore, great job Rutter. You have to play it!
  2. Overall FIFA 10 plays a much more varied, fluid, and believable game of football, which easily sets a new standard in the genre. We spent a fair amount of time between matches wondering what it takes for a football game to get a 10 and we're inclined to believe Rutter and his team have actually achieved it this year. It's a marked improvement over last year's 9 rating and undoubtedly provides the finest videogame take on football so far.
  3. The intensity, excitement, and frantic pacing that FIFA brings to the table mimics the real thing so perfectly, it's hard not to become a fan after just a few scrimmages.
  4. 100
    If you're a fan of the sport – real or virtual – it's a must-buy.
  5. 100
    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.
  6. If you love football then you will love FIFA 10. This is the most realistic football game to date.
  7. The series still has some room to improve, and that alone should be a scary piece of info for all the haters and the competition overall. Perfection might be impossible, but FIFA 10 is as close as it gets.
  8. FIFA 10 is the world's best football simulation to date.
  9. FIFA 10 stands in a league of its own in terms of quality. A truly outstanding tribute to the beautiful game.
  10. FIFA 10 is a fantastic game. It improves upon last year's version in several ways, making this the best soccer simulator to ever hit store shelves. Whether you bought the game or not last year, it's definitely time to upgrade.

    In this more emotional sense FIFA 10 nails football wonderfully, its near technically perfect depiction of the beautiful game presents you with the very best bits of football letting you live the dream better than any previous virtual incarnation of the sport. It does make you wonder what they'll find to improve for next year, though.
  12. If you liked FIFA 09 and you keep liking football, you should buy this game without hesitation.
  13. The result is outstanding: FIFA 10 is a spectacular football simulation, one all fans should never miss. The good job done on the previous edition has been expanded and enhanced in this new version, adding more realism than ever to all the gameplay and animation aspects. PES 2010 has just received its final warning.

    One of the most refined, polished and compelling takes on the beautiful game – and arguably of any given sport. While this year’s improvements might seem slight on paper, each one is perfectly pitched and works together to create an experience that’s an improvement on last year’s game in every conceivable way.
  15. This is undoubtedly the best FIFA game ever made, and by far the most accurate virtual depiction of this magical sport.
  16. FIFA 10 is the capitalization of several years of polishing, both in visual and in gameplay. A true soccer sim, various and well devised, EA Canada made a brilliant game, maybe hard to master through the first days, but very enjoyable in every of its aspects.
  17. The new part of the Fifa family makes everything right! The graphic effects, the controller configuration, the licenses and the great atmosphere! Enjoy it!
  18. Electronic Arts believed that 2010 could have been the right year for the definiteve soccer simulation. It's almost true, although FIFA 10 still has some little flaws, as seen with the goalkeepers. On the other hand 360° dribbling, Live Season 2.0, new physics and a lot of other stuff should be enough to point out who's going to be the champion for this year, and that the developers have done a remarkable job on their baby.
  19. Novice or experts of the game will benefit from EA Sports efforts in creating an easy to use, customizable soccer environment. Not a soccer fan? You could be one after FIFA Soccer 10.
  20. Soccer fans should finally be happy with what EA Sports has given them. The FIFA series is now back to its glory PS2/Xbox days and there is so much to do here. Virtual Pro options alone will occupy you for long periods of time and the on the field action sees the series soaring to new heights. This is without a doubt the best soccer game in a long time and one that every fan should own.
  21. Added depth and nuance are the guiding principles for this spectacular follow up. [Nov 2009, p.100]
  22. For the time being at least FIFA 10 is The Special One.
  23. FIFA 10 adding new dynamic dribbling to its already refined passing game is like adding Ronaldo to Chelsea. It makes a winning formula that much better. A brilliant, championship-conquering football game.
  24. For now, what we can say unequivocally is that FIFA 10 is the best FIFA ever created. And, maybe, the best football game ever created.
  25. This not only plays the best on-the-pitch football of any FIFA title, but it has an incredibly smart and compelling way of tying it all together, too. Brilliant, again. [Oct 2009, p.98]
  26. FIFA 10 is a great football game. On almost every level it outclasses its predecessor, and that was already a fantastic game. The 360-degrees-system, the emphasis on physical elements and the improved passing-abilities ensure that this game appears even more realistic on your screen. With the adding of some interesting game-modes and the improvements over the last game, FIFA 10 is the best football game up to this date.
  27. The beautiful flow of the game on the pitch makes this arguably the greatest football game yet, and a few problems with the online component and manager mode can't stop this from being an essential purchase for all fans of digital soccer.
  28. Football fans who go to sleep with their laces on and foam at the mouth at the prospect of creating a virtual team ... should tattoo this title’s release on their hand and sell their copy of FIFA 09 to the blind kid around the block. [Nov 2009, p.74]
  29. FIFA 10 is the reference for license-driven soccer. Intriguing gameplay, brilliant graphics and the huge amount of different modes are driving the series towards perfection.
  30. FIFA 10 is not just a new update of the last season, and although it has not grown graphically is a game that brought a renewed gameplay, much more intuitive and real.

    I played nearly every FIFA game, also FIFA 13, and i must say that this is the best FIFA all time. But it don't gets 10 out of ten, because the online mode is not that kind I usual see in football games. When the opponent cancels the game, it'll not be counted. So there are only 9 points for a apart from that very good game, that searches for an equal. Full Review »

    FIFA 10 is a great soccer videogame and very fun to play especially as a Virtual Pro in Pro Clubs online. The game's speed is way too high and it's very easy to pass and score but you still had full control over what's happening on the pitch and normally the best player wins and not always the luckiest. I give this game only a 7, because later there are/were many bugs and glitches that could be used online and destroyed the online experience in the last weeks until FIFA 11 came out. Also, that FIFA 10 is more an actual "Game" than a Simulation of realistic soccer and right now it's not very motivating anymore because the online servers were taken offline. And offline, FIFA 10 is almost useless. Full Review »

    El Fifa 10 es bastante mejor que el 09, pero aun así deja muchísimo que desear, de todas formas, se nota la diferencia jugable respecto al PES2010, mas fluido y mas real, en los gráficos, es pésimo un año mas, mejora un poco..pero aun así...parecen de play 1, luego también esta el apartado de modo manager, apenas mejorado y muy tosco, un juego que no estaba a las alturas de las expectativas...al menos, esa es mi opinión.
