Reviewed: 2010 Fifa World Cup: South Africa (PS3, 360)
7 September 2013
Excerpt: With one of the biggest sporting events taking place this summer, a game to accompany it, was inevitable but instead of the usual dross 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa actually serves up a playing experience on a par with EA Sports big football series. Initially the only real obvious difference between the game and FIFA 10 is the vibrancy of its presentation. Menus are much more colorful than that of the some what subdued looks of FIFA 10.
Excerpt: 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa may be the most realistic soccer game I have ever played. Add into the mix some stellar presentation, and EA Sports has another winner on their hands. Soccer is well known around the world, and the most popular sport on this planet. I know we Americans hate to hear that since soccer is nowhere near as popular as football, baseball, and basketball in our country. You know to be honest hockey is most likely more popular in America.
Conclusion: As for everybody else, if you want the very best football simulation that money can buy and a well-developed accompaniment to the summer festivities, then World Cup 2010 is undoubtedly recommended. But get ready to lay down another £40 this coming October. You will want to.
Review: 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa (Microsoft Xbox 360)
3 September 2010
Excerpt: I was very, very nice to FIFA ’10 when I reviewed it. I gave it a good score, pointed out that it was a better football game than Pro Evolution Soccer 2010 , and said that it was the “perfect evolution” of the series. I still stand by that review. Then, I gave some demo impressions of 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa (henceforth known as World Cup ’10 or WC ’10 ) in a PSN wrap-up , and noted that I wasn’t sure, based on the demo, that the game was worth $50.
Excerpt: There is usualy a spate of new releases at the beginning of major sporting events, so it is no surprise to find EA’s 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa (FWCSA) receiving an outing. After the frankly excellent FIFA10 , you might wonder what FWCSA could offer, but EA have certainly done their utmost to ensure that this is a pick of the crop and not an also ran.
Excerpt: I am distressed. Team VideoGamer.com flies out to Los Angeles for the behemoth that is the E3 trade show on Saturday June 12. That day, as anyone who's ever kicked a football knows, is the day England open their World Cup account against the USA. I'm not sure of the time zones, but I will probably miss the game.
Excerpt: The trademarks, advertising hoardings and colourful presentation promise an accurate recreation of this summer’s international tournament – but how well does the action hold up, compared to the recent high point of FIFA 10 ? Commentary helps you through the menu system, updated to include a globe showing the 199 different countries available to play.
Conclusion: A game that would look all the greater had it not arrived so soon after its predecessor. As a tribute to the greatness of the World Cup it is probably unequalled and offers a unique feeling football experience. For fans of the series this will not disappoint and for those who don’t own FIFA 10 it offers additional value. Roll on FIFA 11.
