  1. This is a fantastic title that not only all Wii owners, but every fan of the sport will find something to enjoy. This might be a strictly arcade affair, but once you accept that and just focus on trying to score as many goals as possible, you will find it difficult to put down.

    Virtually the same game as FIFA 10 but the new modes add heaps of longevity. [May 2010, p.66]
  3. This is the most fun I've had with a soccer title in quite a while, so 2010 FIFA World Cup is definitely worth checking out.
  4. 2010 FIFA World Cup is the confirmation of everything that was good in FIFA 10. The playability is great, the atmosphere authentic and players move smoother than ever.
  5. Slightly more than a re-skin of FIFA 10, but not quite enough to make this definitive. [May 2010, p.84]
  6. Great graphics, great gameplay style, but nothing really new that's worth the try if you're not a fan of the World Cup or if you want to use the South Africa championship to do something special with the arcade style that FIFA offers in its Wii version. It's a very interesting game lacking something useful for those who want to see a different game, or an evolved one.
  7. Even if the gameplay is quite enjoyable, the Wii Version of FIFA is evidently Family Oriented, and this will disappoint many gamers.
  8. Electronic Arts has created a great soccer game, but for those who have already played a FIFA game for Wii, you probably won't find anything worth getting excited about.

Tons of modes and game play variety make for great replay value. There however isn't much new to it that hasn't been in previous soccer games. Still, a nice enough game. Full Review »
