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. FIFA 10 was by far the best football game I'd ever played, and this latest iteration is that game with a smattering of new features, tweaked and refined where needed. As such, you can probably stop reading now if you want.
Conclusion: It's a feat itself considering all the bad games I have played. Not even the Team of the week thing in this game makes sense as I become nominated to the team of the week after a red card. Let's just end here shall we! 0/6 points for how good the game is and how much one enjoyed playing it. This is worth celebrating!

Excerpt: 's engine great, apart from making penalties more of a bother than they need to be, but a lack of meaningful improvements, particularly in its game modes, means that it feels like I'm paying full price mostly just for updated rosters and kits.
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). FIFA 11 certainly has huge shoes to fill; can it knock the reigning king off the top of the mountain?
Conclusion: FIFA 11 is the best football game around. Football fanatics won’t put it down, sports lovers will appreciate the depth of gameplay offered, and even the average gamer will be able to enjoy a few solid months of multiplayer action.
Excerpt: As I write this, Liverpool sits atop the Barclays Premier League log with seven wins out of seven games. Torres is in fine form, the team has gelled and even the manager is garnering praise. It should be noted, of course, that this is in FIFA 11 ’s Career Mode. Real life tells a different tale, but that’s about the only discrepancy between FIFA 11 and genuine football, because in just about every avenue EA has nailed the crux of the sport.
