About the Product
- You have complete control over your players, with the ability to assign a specific role and movement to every outfield player on your team one at a time, and then combine them for the perfect set piece.
- The first true 360 dribbling system in a soccer game gives you precise control to skillfully play spaces between defenders that previously was not possible.
- Advanced animation warping technology lets skilled players face defenders and maneuver around them with highly-responsive lateral dribbling.
- More intelligent AI with more authentic behavior. Players now avoid passes not intended for them, avoid blocking teammate shots, and throw themselves in the way of attacker's shots in defense.
- Work on individual skills in a fully featured practice mode before stepping on the pitch. Select exactly how many attackers and defenders you want in play, and practice set pieces.

If you are a sports game fan, I think you will like this game. Its fun to play solo or against a computer opponent (face to face). Didn't try online yet.
Not with FIFA 10.
I've only played the manager mode with the team I support the most, AS Roma, but simply from that experience, what a difference in the game play. I liked last year's addition of an actual referee pointing the flag in the direction of team possession, so of course, that made it back to FIFA 10. New additions to the FIFA game include; a full schedule for your team, including preseason friendlies with teams in your league, and with teams all over Europe; improved player likenesses, including the way indivual players move (Francesco Totti actually moves like Francesco Totti); weather changes to go with day and night games, including rain and snow; in the rain snow games, most of the players on your squad switch to longsleeves, which was a feature missing from the previous FIFAs; it's easier for defenders to tackle and win possession, which makes the game more difficult but lends to the realistic aspects a real match; and right and left backs can actually push up the sides of the field, which allows them to score and gives more team members besides just your strikers and attacking midfielders a chance on goal.
The only problem I have with the game is the price, and the fact that I'm a full time student without the time to play the game as much as I'd like. Fully recommended to any fans of the previous games. And just think to yourself once you play it...it only gets better from here.
Playing on the harder difficulty levels, the AI still makes awful decisions from time-to-time. Defenders under no pressure make awful panicky clearances, forwards make runs while keeping a defender close and between them and the ball, et cetera. That said, overall the AI has improved greatly from earlier versions, and it makes the game that much more fun.
Improved physics & 360 controls:
The high points of this game are the physics and 360 controls. As opposed to previous versions, you have very precise directional control of everything. This is also somewhat frustrating, because it greatly increases the sensitivity of everything you do. The ball movements, player movements, and player clashes seem more real than ever before. It feels much closer to real soccer than any other game I've played before.
They made a big deal out of how improved manager mode is. Frankly, I see little difference, except simulating games takes longer, I'm guessing due to the increasing number of variables taken into account. But I still see outlandish results, but like Fifa 2008, it seems fairly reasonable a majority of the time. Of course there's some things like salary caps going on here, but nothing makes a big difference in my opinion. I still enjoy manager mode, it's just not a very big change from before. The one thing here that I still find frustrating, is even if you start with a 5-star team, it's incredibly hard to transfer star players. They simply don't want to play for you until you have many stars. But by the time you can get these manager stars, some of the star older players (e.g., Ronaldinho) have retired.Read more ›
Dribbling is much better you can now absorb contact and push the ball.
Again game speed is much faster so you don't have to use turbo all the time and burn out your players come 2nd half. Shooting from distance now works in 09 and previous years the only to score was on a breakaway or 10 feet from the goalie (Gerrard Lampard we doing work this year)
Let me stop rambling. Fifa 10 is a great game alot of people would say PES. I was one of those guys but Fifa 09 really put the ball in their court and 10 just improves off last years game.
Madden junkies that want to play a sports game where it doesn't take an hour to play a game pick up Fifa you can probably get about 4-5 matches out in the same time it takes to play a madden game online.
