Rated 10 out of 10 by rey_aztec Not so different from other FIFA games but unique in world sports history.
This game is awesome because it is easy and fun to play. You can choose plenty of variety game modes, from getting the country of choice to glory, to play the 2010 world cup or playing previous world cups. Game play matches perfectly with audio commentaries and public reaction. Score festivities were very well improved. Game controls are similar to FIFA 10 but there is a nice two button game move that can help make game play easier. I have both FIFA 10 and South Africa and both share similarities but are unique in its theme. Games get harder as you approach to glory and you can feel the unique game strategy from each country. On-line gaming is just fun and there is always someone to play with. What makes this game different from all other soccer games is that you can be part of the greatest world sport even that happens once every four years. This is a must have for every sports fan.

After playin FIFA 10, I just cant wait to play this one....After reading some of the previews and learning that they are going to make the atmosphere of the stadium more real with confetti flying everywhere and it also staying on the pitch throughout the game...just shows you that adding these little things makes the game more realistic...Im just hoping they have more anthems and more chants for the teams and if they would put some flares in the game to And to the guy who wrote that its mexicos year to take it home COME ON.....mexicos chance to win has passed and that was the last world cup when the beautiful strike by Maxi made the whole nation cry...if anything the team thats going to win it is goin to be a country frome urope thats it....brazil will be lucky to advance to the semis and the same to argentina....its goin to be germany or holland but forget bout england
Rated 10 out of 10 by fcphillyboy Excellent game; very realistic
I traded in fifa 10 and received a higher credit as a result of a promotion. It's great they have so many national teams along with extensive features tailored around the World Cup. Looking forward to going through qualifying and earning a spot in the tournament. Online play also seems to be great along with the online world cup tournament feature. Graphics are strong, it's nice they have the coaches for the 32 teams in this year's cup, wish Bob Bradley would wear a suit or something more professional as he looks like a clown in the game wearing his track suit. Skill moves and celebrations are the same as Fifa 10 which isn't a bad thing. I enjoy the sounds from both the crowd and the in-game commentary. I have only played about 8-10 games since picking this up Tuesday but so far, it has been stellar and I highly recommend
Rated 7 out of 10 by Mazinger Z very dissapointing
I was so excited to get this game since it seemed that it would be a great game but I was very dissapointed after just playing my first game. Yes, the players do run smoother but some of them run just like crazy and run into each other. The ball control is very poor. Players that are known to have good ball control lose the ball easily. For example Messi, First he does not look like him, he actually looks taller than other players! Second, he is weak and loses the ball very easily. The goal celebrations are also very unrealistic, where did they get this from?!! This game developers know crap about real FUTBOL!!!!!! As I said before, I was very dissapointed and would only recommend this game if you want to play as your home country and try to win the world cup.
Rated 10 out of 10 by T|-|EG@/\/\/\/\E Great Game
I think the fact that they have teams from all over the world was good giving the game variety. The games modes like qualifying for the world cup and the story of qualifying were good ideas. It gives you the feel that you were the one that actually made it to the world cup. I like the in-game commentary but wish it was the guy with the Irish accent in the other fifa game. The ball handle is not that great. You tend to lose the ball more easily. I only played 2 or 3 online matches but it seems good. I just wish you can setup a private match though maybe i don't know how. I like the celebrations moves that they have like the breakdance one. The graphics look good like the other fifa games. Overall its a good game I would highely recommend getting this game.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Gangsta MC 13 Decent Gameplay but a Must Buy
FIFA World Cup is probably the only game that I would say you would be dumb not to buy it. The gameplay itself needs a little work. The shooting is a little hard in that the shot is hard to control because if you in a one on one vs the keeper, you often hit the goalie or shank it. After awhile you get used to it and easliy adapt. Dribbling is BY FAR, the biggest issue though. I played FIFA 10 and the dribbling is great. You can easily cut with the ball and change direction easily as well. In World Cup, the dribbling is bad because all of your turns have to either be made by completely stopping your character or making very slight inward progression over a long span. Lastly, the graphics are a little less than expected but not bad. Now for the positives. The fact that you can choose almost every, if not every, country in the World with the full roster including reserves and everything. The cutscenes of the team introductions and the celebration are very cool. You can also compete in the whole world cup, including qualifying. But the last, and most important reason to buy is this; its the World Cup. It happens once every 4 years. So you will have to wait 4 more years to get a game like this again. Get the World Cup and then get FIFA 11 or 12 once you get tired of it and the real World Cup excitement fades.
Rated 9 out of 10 by weece22 one of the best soccer games yet
i got this game last summer and i loved it. the sound is excellent. the commentators sound just like the real people and don't just say 10 different things. the graphics on this game were the best ones on a soccer game that i have played to this date. the lasting appeal on it was very good. i had this game for about 3 months before i got tired of winning world cups. as far as the gameplay; it was excellent as well. a person that is new to EA soccer games could easily learn the non-complicated controls. overall, this is one of the most realistic soccer games yet; right down to the annoying vuvuzelas that fans are blowing in the stands.

Rated 0 out of 10 by JCSH17 The most complete World Cup Experience Ever!!!
This game will be awesome, I think that at last there's enough technology to make an awesome game like the ones a World Cup needs. The most awesome thing about this is the fact that it has all the teams except six or something like it but for people like me that their country isn't so good It'll be awesome. I'm from Puerto Rico and I my country has never played a world cup but in the game at least I can get them far. Another thing if you haven't played the Demo, PLAY IT!!! because it's awesome and addictive. I think that I pray everyday to make the game get out sooner because I can't wait... LOL

This games sounds like it has it all! I think that each country should have their own unique fans, ex": Mexican fans should have luchador masks, sombreros, etc. They should also include the FIFA CONFEDERATIONS CUP! Since this tournaments happens while the qualification is still in process. I guess that's all for now! Since I know Mexico won't win the world cup this year, I will do it myself on this game. VIVA MEXICO! GOOD LUCK TO ALL THE TEAMS
