2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa Review
19 May 2010
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is There are many reasons why football fans worldwide are excited about the new FIFA World Cup 2010 South Africa game, even though we just had another FIFA eight months ago. First, the excitement of the world cup can overcome anyone and with about a month until kick off the game is a perfect appetizer before the main course. The other main reason though is how good the EURO 2008 game was two years ago.
Excerpt: For anyone living in South Africa there have only really been two items in the news lately that had people talking. Since we won’t get into politics we can skip the Julius Malema stories and head straight into something that is actually newsworthy: the FIFA World Cup! FIFA fever has hit the country and the excitement is almost tangible! People are wearing their football jerseys and you can hear random vuvuzela’s all throughout the day.
Summary: 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa is highly addictive due to its realism and visuals that make some instances hilarious as well as great. If you loved FIFA 10 then you will no doubt love World Cup South Africa. The game is set at a $59.99 MSRP though which I thought was pretty ridiculous and others may as well if you played and own FIFA 10 already.
Pros: Amazing presentation, love the competitions between countries, facial animations improved.
Cons: Price of the game for those who have FIFA 10 already, online limited to world cup mode.
Conclusion: But the big question remains – does 2010 FIFA World Cup do enough to justify a purchase for owners of the already brilliant FIFA 2010? Yes, there are no club teams here and the improvements it makes are incremental at best. But improvements they are – this is a better game than FIFA 10 and while it'll inevitably be outstripped by FIFA 11 later this year it still stands as the best take on the sport that's currently available.
Excerpt: With an event as big as the world cup, a game has got to be made to mark the occasion, hasn’t it? Well the answer is yes, so here we have EA Sports’ 2010 FIFA World Cup: South Africa. Now many people have described the game as FIFA 10.5 and you can understand why with it may be seen that way, with national teams instead of league teams. These people could not be more wrong as many parts of the game have had a huge overhaul with new features added.
Excerpt: Zet de frituurpan aan, haal de echte Kwekkeboom kroketten en Mora bitterballen uit de vriezer, trek 3 grote blikken Unox knakworsten open, zet de stokbroden met kruidenboter in de oven, zet de Calvé party sauzen op tafel, en haal het bier koud uit de koelkast. Het is tijd voor een gezellig avondje oud-Hollands voetbal met 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa.
Pros: FIFA 10.5, WK-gevoel, Vernieuwd strafschoppen-systeem, Online meedoen aan een World Cup, Noob-besturing
Cons: Vernieuwd strafschoppensysteem, Kan aanvoelen als een game die je al hebt, Gaat misschien maar mee tot FIFA 11, Enkele ‘tweaks’ nog steeds niet doorgevoerd t.o.v. FIFA 10, Wisselen van speler
Summary: Abgesehen von der Präsentation und dem modifizierten Elfmeter-System sind im Verglich mit FIFA 10 kaum echte Veränderungen oder gar Innovationen zu erkennen. Ich würde gar so weit gehen zu behaupten, dass es sich bei FIFA Fussball-Weltmeisterschaft Südafrika 2010 lediglich um eine grafisch modifizierte Version des Vorgängers handelt.
