    Its simple really. If you are into tactical soccer, like tinkering with formations and monitoring the growth of your players, if you expect a striker to behave like a striker when forced to take up defensive duties and know the difference between a defensive midfielder and a fullback, then this is the soccer game to play.

When compared to the other soccer videogame, this actually plays like the sport. Anyone who plays soccer understand that you entire team does not sprint forward as soon as you obtain possession, but this seems to escape the programmers at EA. Very simply put, FIFA 10 plays like a hockey game without the sticks...and it doesnt suprise me seeing as how the game is made in Canada. If soccer/football is your favorite sport then choose PES. If you are a casual gamer..choose Fifa Expand

    NO matter what critics say, it all comes down to the fans. If a player is into the authenticity of the gameplay, tactics, movements and formation then this is the current best game in town. If you feel like just dribbling past defenders and shooting as if shooting a gun in a 3rd person game then go for Fifa. True footballers would pick PES!

    This game got harsh backlash from the media because of two admittedly horrible years before and the FIFA hype. This time it's back on form [kind of]...The PES elements can be seen here, the randomness of football, the variety of every match and team and the players (variety- something FIFA badly lacks) are all here for you to see. Granted, the gameplay needs a bit of ironing out but This game got harsh backlash from the media because of two admittedly horrible years before and the FIFA hype.

Granted, the gameplay needs a bit of ironing out but if you were a PES fanatic in the PS2 days and love how much care goes into recreating a match feel, you WILL get an excellent match feel with this edition. The core PES feel is here. Add on top of that a superbly improved Master League mode (they obviously been secretly working on this for at least 3 years), community mode that keeps stats of matches between you and your mates, and finally a lagless enough to be playable online mode and this is a PES that makes you see a light at the end of the tunnel and something any PES fanatic can pick up and fall in love with within 2-3 matches. This is finally a football game I fell in love with this gen and PES2011 will perfect the formula (hence the 9 for this one). Expand

    I have been a FIFA fan for as long as I can remember (33 years of age) and to be honest it has always delivered nearly every year. And for a while now it offers the TV/SKY Sports style exeperience we are all so familiar with and that is why I love it!! I had one year when I became hooked on Pro -Evo (not sure what year 07 maybe 08) but FIFA 09 took me back to class and 2010 now even I have been a FIFA fan for as long as I can remember (33 years of age) and to be honest it has always delivered nearly every year. And for a while now it offers the TV/SKY Sports style exeperience we are all so familiar with and that is why I love it!! I had one year when I became hooked on Pro -Evo (not sure what year 07 maybe 08) but FIFA 09 took me back to class and 2010 now even classier. Realistic is the key word. Technical is another and at times there is an adrenaline feel of real achievement when you score! Yes it has some annoyances (FIFA 10) music is awful but who cares. Management Mode is basically still naff - with Board comments that often make no relevance, budget calculation may go all to cock in any new season but again no detriment to the game play which is simply awesome. Get a big TV 32 inch no less and HD. Bring the players in closer (Camera), I did this and I was in my element, the nearest to actually being out there on the pitch! 360 degree makes the whole experience almost flawless with fluid 'real life' movement and I actually like it when the ref gets in the way it all adds to the frustration of a real life footballers experience. So we know FIFA 10 is pretty much 10/10 but the reason I give it a 9 is: 1. Clicking through Menu Options is a bit too slow unlike with ProEvo. 2. Crosses are hit and miss. Never know whether to have a 99 Header of the ball or 99 volleys? Go for a big striker wack his heading up to 99 and accuracy to 99 and he will score his fair share over a season all the same. But still crosses I find mostly are a waste of time which basically means your wide players need good strength, pace and positioning to cut inside run at goal hold off the defender and also long range and finishing need to be up in the 80's and you will score some beauties! This brings me by the way to fiddling with your players abilities in the Edit menu to what you want them honed at according to how you play and what you want to get from them during a match. TIP: Pace hurts opposition. Give your Defenders a lot more pace aswell. 3. My biggest frustration is waiting for Transfers do we really care if we see Kasparachimikov move from FC Gogoonheem to FC Metz just pointless and time consuming - we know who we want to buy and that's all that matters - I just want to get from next match to next and the inbetween to be quicker! 4. Graphics is a lttle off in places. That's about it however we have been loyally lining EA Sports pockets for years now AND I would love to see Pro-Evo do something extraordinary one year soon but somehow I don't think they will well at least FIFA is on the button - remove those glitches make the commentating more comprehensive and a little more off the ball incidences perhaps a few more real stadiums and the official Champions League from Pro Evo and we wouldn't ever need a rival footy game as FIFA would rule the world!!!!!

    Este jogo é incrível! Eu recebi e ainda não posso parar de jogar. Os gráficos são tão detalhadas para um game e é desafiador, mas divertido e terá que jogar por horas! A história é complexa e profundamente pensado. O melhor jogo que eu já joguei de forma

    The gameplay is solid; it just isn’t able to keep pace with FIFA 10 in most regards.

    It's game on between the big two once again. [Dec 2009, p.114]

    Yes, FIFA is the superior offering this year -- but it's a lot closer than you might initially think. If Takatsuka's team tackles the animation issues and online hiccups next year like they addressed the graphics, presentation, and Master League this year, we could have a 2010 videogame footballing derby worthy of Premier League titans Liverpool and Man United.
