2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa





2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa 


2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa may be the most realistic soccer game I have ever played. Add into the mix some stellar presentation, and EA Sports has another winner on their hands. Soccer is well known around the world, and the most popular sport on this planet. I know we Americans hate to hear that since soccer is nowhere near as popular as football, baseball, and basketball in our country. You know to be honest hockey is most likely more popular in America. I am pretty sure things like professional wrestling are above soccer as well. You will not be outscoring your opponent by twenty goals in 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa.

Visually there are a lot of really cool things in 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa. The game cuts to fans celebrating or showing their displeasure throughout the game. Their models are fantastic. It is like seeing fans on the big screen at a game. This is an interesting way to show the crowd. The problem is only a few are ever shown at a time. The frequency of them being shown was a bit much for me. There are various camera angles the player can choose from. The players on the field animate well. My one complaint is the players look pretty small in the default mode.

The announcers in 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa are going to be famous. They do a wonderful job of calling the game, and explaining what you did wrong. I had no idea why I would take 15 shots in a game, and never get near the goal. The announcers explained I was shooting from too far out. 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa has a lengthy track of music that I barely noticed. The reason is the songs do not play all the time. Like other EA Sports games you can go in there and turn off the ones you do not appreciate.

If soccer if your thing then you will find a lot of replay value to 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa. EA Sports included a lot of various features. One of the more interesting features is "Story of Qualifying." In this feature you get to place specific scenarios from the past, and change history. I really hope to see this feature in other sports games in the future. I can see this catching on like a wildfire with sports gamers. 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa contains multiplayer modes both offline and online. I have to be real for a moment my friends. Getting to play others is my favorite part of this game. I never get enough of going one on one with another sports gamer.

Before you start playing 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa, look at the manual to understand the various buttons. This will lead to less frustration as you play this game. Once you do that, spend some time with the tutorials. Soccer has a lot of complex rules that you will end up breaking. I found out a lot about the penalty system in soccer thanks to 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa. This game feels like a real soccer game. I would have long periods of frustration,and then finally break through and score a goal. That made the celebration so much sweeter.

2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa teaches team work, discipline, and hard work. There are usually not a lot of goals scored in soccer, so players can also learn strategy. I like the direction EA Sports is taking this franchise, and I wonder what will be in next years iteration. I will be recommending 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa to family and friends. If you have a short fuse, then you could use 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa as a way to help you deal with your anger issues.
