Summary: After playing Fifa on the PC and consoles since '96, I finally decided to get Fifa 2010. The main point of it was I heard that the 360 Degree control made for a much better game. In summary I would say if you are thinking of upgrading to Fifa 10, don't. Also I won't be buying another Fifa game unless I hear that all these stupid issues are cleared up. At first I was impressed with the PS3 version. The new controls are great, making for a much better runnign game.
Summary: I would like to start by mentioning that I'm 34 years old, and that I have owned almost every single soccer game ever made for Nintendo and Play Station. I have always been a fan of Pro Evolution Soccer, back when it was called Winning Eleven, and going even further back to International Superstar Soccer. Being a soccer fan I have tried FIFA in the past with less than satisfying results (more on that ahead).
Fun But Don't Fall for Marketing Hype. Rent First, Full of Bugs.

Summary: FIFA 10 is a fun game, 360 degrees of motion is great, it is an improvement over 09 and 08, has MUCH better gameplay than previous versions - it actually functions properly -, and has tweaks here and there over the 09 version too. However, it still can't be considered the best soccer/football game of all time and other fancy cr*p that's being hyped around by EA and some people who don't demand too much from their game.
Excerpt: "...the biggest fan of fifa myself and was suprised to get it as a christmas present. The gameplay for me is very slow and the time it takes for the players to respond to the buttons pressed is embarressing. The layout i feel is boring and does not appeal to me at all, like previous fifa's i feel this is a letdown and i odnt really know when fifa will be worth buying. The carrer is exactly the same as fifa 09 and after a season you are board stiff. ...
Summary: FIFA has often been criticised for its over emphasis on attacking play and ignorance of defence. Last year was a slight departure from that attempting more realism, but in FIFA10 the game has regressed and defences have been ignored and goalkeepers have become an absolute joke. Worst examples for the keepers have been in the Be A Pro Clubs mode where you are assigned a computer generated keeper, who more often than not will be very short.
Summary: When I first got this game I thought it was awesome. However, after owning it for around 2 weeks, I have begun to find it incredibly, mind numbingly boring due to a poor shooting engine which means that most goals are pretty generic, unoriginal and just lacking in creativity. It's far to easy to lose the ball and to tackle other players is also a breeze. There are a number of online bugs which make this aspect of the game totally useless. I'm switching back to Pro Evo!
Summary: First things first: FIFA 10 plays a cracking game of footy. When you're on the pitch it's sublime- I haven't played a football game properly since ISS on the SNES and FIFA 10 feels just as fun and accessible whilst providing deeper options for those who choose to use them. Sadly as others have mentioned, the game is riddled with bugs - ranging from minor graphical glitches which spoil the presentation to crash bugs and major game breaking bugs in tournament or manager...
Summary: This game is a bug ridden mess. After an initial period when I thought this was an improvement on Fifa 09, and the movement of the players brought it closer to the look of a genuine football game, it has all gone pear shaped. I have been unable to progress beyond 4 full seasons in manager mode without it fatally freezing. This after, amongst other things: * The assistant manager changing the team after each game when this facility is supposedly turned off.

Summary: Buggar i mängder!! Framför allt blir jag, med många andra, disconnectade mitt under matcher online. Har varit så sedan releasen. Går jag tillbaka till fifa09 funkar det alldeles utmärkt. Känns som press och understöd har blivit ännu mer effektivt, vilket förstör spelupplevelsen. Spelarna rör sig bättre och ser mer naturligt ut än i 09.
