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.
Excerpt: The summer is nearly upon us, and thank goodness that this year brings a World Cup to fill the summer months. But until that begins you can enjoy the highs and lows of a fierce competition with this EA offering for the Wii. It’s not the first FIFA game to be released on this console – there have been a few before this, but this is my first experience of a football game on the Wii.
Pros: Bright, colourful and fun, Good offline multiplayer mode, Simple and responsive controls, Plenty of countries and stadia to choose from
Cons: Lagging behind versions on other consoles, Limited in player movements on the field, Fun factor might only last throughout World Cup
