Summary: Parents need to know that there is nothing of concern in this game other than some branding (e.g. Coca-Cola). The soccer sim was designed to capture the excitment and emotion of 2010 FIFA World Cup soccer, a family friendly sporting competition taking place in June 2010 in South Africa. Online version does allow open chat using a headset with strangers, so parents of younger children might want to prohibit that mode of play.
Summary: EA Sports 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa features all the emotion and passion of the fiercest national rivalries battling on the world's biggest stage, with all 199 national teams that took part in qualification, all 10 official stadiums used in South Africa and stadiums from each qualifying region.
Summary: When the 2010 World Cup kicks off in South Africa next month, soccer fans the world over will be glued to their televisions regardless of whether or not their country is still in the running. When there are no matches being played, they'll need some other way to satiate their soccer appetites, and that's where 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa comes in.
Pros: Great multiplayer modes, Assembling your dream team is a lot of fun, Fast-paced, arcade-style soccer
Cons: Limited online and solo play options, Remote-and-nunchuk controls make you want to reach for a Classic Controller
Excerpt: Despite the 360/PS3 versions of 2010 FIFA World Cup marking an improvement over FIFA 10, the Wii version doesn't fare so well. In fact, this title is so similar to the year's main game that it's going to take the most dedicated of football fans to pick it up on Nintendo's console. Against EA's best efforts, what we have here is largely a rehash of FIFA 10, sprinkled under a World Cup skin. Regrettably, this Wii title suffers from the limitations of the hardware.
Excerpt: The real FIFA World Cup may be four years in the making, heightening the glory and agony of everyone involved, but FIFA World Cup games certainly aren't four years in the making. In fact, given that FIFA 10 only came out last October, you could argue that 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa has been a mere six months in the making.
Pros: Gorgeous presentation., Excellent World Cup mode., Slight gameplay tweaks from FIFA 10 (new penalty system is defo worth learning).
Cons: Clive Tyldesley and Andy Townsend., Not as many features as FIFA 10., Steep learning curve for penalties.
