  • Summary: EA SPORTS 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa features all the emotion and passion of the fiercest national rivalries battling on the world’s biggest stage, with all 199 national teams that took part in qualification, all 10 official stadiums to be used in South Africa and stadiums from each qualifying region. Gamers can play as their home nation from qualification right through to a virtual reproduction of the FIFA World Cup Final and feel what it is like to score the goal that lifts a nation. Everything fans love about the World Cup comes to life in spectacular detail, including confetti rain, streamers, & fireworks - just like the official tournament. [Electronic Arts] Collapse

  1. Still, 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa offers an incredibly solid game of soccer packaged in some of the best presentation yet seen on the PSP.
  2. As always, the PlayStation Portable version isn't able to keep up with its big next-gen-brother. The controls and the game mechanics of FIFA World Cup 2010 still feel good, but the atmosphere reminds us more of a local town meeting.
  3. If you like soccer and want to play before the real world cup begins, you make no mistake when buying this game. Although the atmosphere lacks a bit in comparison to the console versions, this title is good for playing on the go.
  4. Considering it’s for the PSP, 2010 FIFA World Cup, in the end, is a decent football game. It does have its flaws–visuals are poor, gameplay is identical to past iterations in the PSP FIFA series, and you may be better off waiting for FIFA 11. However, audio is spot on, and a broad range of modes adds plenty of replayability and value to the title.
  5. The PSP version of 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa comes with a series of flaws that undermine the gameplay both in offline (poor IA, awful corner kicks) and online (heavy lag issues) modes. There are plenty of game modes, however, and fans of the series should give it a try.
  6. 65
    A decent effort, but once again it is belittled by the shadow of its console counterpart. [Issue#193, p.98]
  7. With FIFA 2010 World Cup South Africa on PSP, EA Sports sells a very cheap ticket for South Africa (30€). That’s really the least it can do for this copycat of FIFA 10, itself copy/pasted on the previous one.
