The graphics are nice
The BPL stadiums and chants is a really nice touch
The dribbling is fun to use
Pace actually holds significance now (in previous versions Mertesacker could catch Bale, it was ridiculous)
The new animations are really cool and add to realism
I don't understand the complaints about heading, I find it good and a lot more realistic, I've gotten a lot of good goals from it.
The defending is totally terrible, like really, its almost impossible to make a tackle when realistically its perfectly feasible.
The opposition don't play "football", they run at you, and keep running, and coupled with the bad defending mechanics it ends in rage disaster, my pad has never been thrown so much since I bought it, I also don't think I've shouted **** more than at this game.
Its biased: I'm not a bad player, I've been playing this game since FIFA07, granted I'm not absolutely outstanding, but I can handle the game and I fully understand football inside out. The referees are biased, they give decisions the computers way and neglect the decision when the shoe is on the other foot. Its also frustrating when you've been attacking for 80 minutes of a game but the keeper has saved everything you've thrown at them, just for them to run at you, and keep running, past your retarded defenders to score as if its a 5 a side kick around.
The transfer system in career mode is fairly bad. For example; when conducting a criteria search, you don't have enough criteria. You have position, name, age, country, team league etc. Nothing substantial. Even if they added an option to search for players with expiring contracts it'd improve the experience. The global transfer market is good, but you don't seem to retain information from previous scouting expeditions, or even players you've sold, you'd think it'd at least retain their last known abilities and value but it doesn't, so a lot of the money you spend on hiring good scouts and the time you spend sending them out and setting instructions is wasted.
The passing is almost ridiculous, everything is either intercepted, or goes to the wrong player or just goes into no mans land, its really irritating and frustrating. I'd understand it going to the wrong player if there were 2 players stood in the same vicinity, but its not the case, its a case of you asking it to pass one way, and the computer misinterpreting the information and sending it the other. The interceptions are over the top, no man on the planet has a brain that works that fast to cause them to read what you're doing and react perfectly, its unrealistic. It happens when dribbling too, when you've wrongfooted a player with a bit of skill or pace and they magically do some sort of acrobatic nonsense and pull the ball away with almost German precision, it really gets frustrating.
The shooting system is VERY hard to get used to for about 20 games. You'll take a shot using a reasonable amount of power from a reasonable distance using a player with good shooting attributes, and you'll hit the blimp hovering above the stadium or kill a fan near the corner flag. It depends very heavily on getting your players body set right and if you don't take enough touches to settle yourself it'll just spoon off into the distance, even if you're 5 yards out. Be careful or you'll frustrate yourself by missing sitters.
Overall, its a good game, but its not solid and it doesn't quite feel finished, I'm sure all the defending errors, interceptions and maybe even the shooting will be tweaked in an update, but I'm not currently on XboxLive, so its not really fair is it?
6/10 - Frustrating, but still a good FIFA game and plenty of fun to be had.… Full Review »

BUT , the big problem is the game itself , the gameplay has been dumbed down to such a level that its a joke ,defenders can barely turn , while attackers can weave around at will , through balls always find an attacker in space , while your defenders stand still or run in opposite directions , also quick players are too quick in the game , there is too big a difference between fast and normal players. Games are identical , just a series of through balls or quick players tearing down the wing . The momentum feature is still present , you can tell when you are going to concede a goal , your players cannot pass to each other , and your keeper cannot hold onto anything. What is so infuriating is that everything about the game is top quality , but the gameplay is terrible , EA have made an arcade game for younger players , games end 5-5 , loads of goals , its just so boring its unbelievable.I can't recommend it at all , best wait for PES 15 which looks miles better for the more mature player… Full Review »
