Rated 2 out of 10 by SoCalCynic Poorly-Executed Release for this Franchise
I knew purchasing a game with the history of Electronic Arts' FIFA franchise for the Nintendo Wii platform would be a step backwards in certain ways. However, the number and distance involved in those steps backwards are sufficient to make me wish I had not made the purchase. The biggest disappointment is the lack of training and practice modes. There is no practice mode within which a player can practice defense! The game has specific training modules for free kicks, corner kicks, and penalty kicks, as well as open play, but the open play is 11 versus 1 (the 1 being a goalkeeper). Besides the lack of training and practice modes, the method by which to identify tiring players is neither intuitive nor simple. Furthermore, the simple quartet of player statistics is similar to falling off a cliff, if the player is used to Pro Evolution Soccer or FIFA for another platform. Finally, the manager data file save process causes numerous fatal crashes, at least some of which result in the loss of previous game data! I am using a Wii only because my son has monopolized the XBox 360 with Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare 2. I am considering selling the game and picking up another XBox 360.

This game is totally amazing. I could just play this, hour upon hour, and never get bored. Just think... Any other sports game, you could have played as all the teams, against every team, in about a year. This game will take you a whole lot longer to do that. Also, it is so easy to score on this game. A friend of mine said, "This game is so much easier to score on then the PS2 version." Another friend of mine played it at my house, and that very week, got it for his Wii. This is a game, you can have laughs about, and play as your favorite players & teams. YOU HAVE TO GET THIS GAME!!!!
Rated 8 out of 10 by man123 If you liked fifa 09 don't get this game
this overall, was a good soccer game. however, if you had fifa all play 09, this is a major downgrade. there are no free agents, no scouts, and you cannot visually stimulate a match. the same two announcers from the last game are still here. overall, it was a great game. but compared to fifa 09, it sucks
Rated 9 out of 10 by Strechme84 Great game
When i first got this game i couldnt put it down. I played for a few hours straight. It was so good that I invited people over for us to take advantage of the multiplayer option.I would recomend this game to any one who plays sports.
Rated 6 out of 10 by CMan10 2 EASY!!!
All you do to score is swing the Wii remote and the ball goes,like, 60 mph towards the goal! An amateur can probably win 28-0 on easy mode.
Rated 7 out of 10 by soccerman1 Great Game But a Few Problems
the passing in the game is decent. but when you want to take away the ball is difficult.
