  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.
  2. 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.
  3. Slightly more than a re-skin of FIFA 10, but not quite enough to make this definitive. [May 2010, p.84]
  4. This accessible arcade-style soccer game eschews realism in favor of fast-paced fun and features some great multiplayer options.
  5. Setpieces are simplistic and the instant appeal of the arcade style wears off after a while, but there's still enough fun here – particularly in multiplayer – to make this a decent game for fans wanting to get involved in the tournament at home.

    2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa will appease younger gamers who just want to go kick the soccer ball, hear unrealistically loud noises when players take a shot and see lots of bright colors. Those looking for a realistic soccer game won’t find it here, but then again you shouldn’t expect to.
  7. Despite the many disappointments, undoubtedly the thing that disappointed me the most with FIFA World Cup 2010 is that it has no identity. It doesn’t know whether it’s a simulation or a simplistic arcade game.

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. Expand
