Summary: It's like clockwork at this point. Fall rolls around and EA gifts the world another fantastic FIFA game. FIFA 11 is more about streamlining past modes and polishing the gameplay than debuting a lot of new stuff, but it still marks meaningful steps forward over previous games in the series.
Excerpt: FIFA 11. It's FIFA 10, but better. After playing this year's version of EA's blockbuster football sim, that's the best I could come up with for an opening. It's true, though.

Excerpt: FIFA 10 was a fantastic simulation of “the perfect game” for EA Sports' soccer series when it launched last year. It took massive steps forward in both gameplay and features. In fact FIFA 10 is highly regarded as the pinnacle of videogame football (soccer for us N. Americans).
Excerpt: We continually demand that each new version of a game series, or any new game in our sports, do something major every year. These games run for $60 a pop annually, with the costs rising due to DLC which doesn’t transfer to the next year’s versions, and people reflexively want a reason to buy the new...
