Awesome product! Great value for the money.
After years of toying with the idea, I finally decided to buy a football game, and upon the recommendation of many I tried FIFA.
Long story short, FIFA is an excellent football game. It's easy to pick up, yet very challenging on tougher difficulties. Plus, it's ridiculously addictive, and you'll waste hours of your life playing through it.
Undoubtedly the best feature is Career Mode. In Career Mode, you can play through over 15 seasons as a player, a manager, or even a player/manager! The most enjoyable way to experience Career Mode is to start off small, and then slowly build your way up the ranks until every top-class team across Europe is hounding you to join them.
The graphics are very realistic. The players actually look like their real-life selves (except for Laurent Koscielny, for some reason), and the pitches and stadiums appear very life-like, too.
Unfortunately, most of the songs featured on the soundtrack are, quite frankly, rubbish. Thankfully, you can turn the ones you don't like off, and also import your own songs into the game, provided you have set up your PS3'S online capabilities. The commentary can sometimes get annoying, too, although that's remedied by switching to a different language that you don't understand.
The controls, as previously mentioned, are easy to pick up, and the gameplay is simple - bog standard stuff to anyone who watches football (I'd imagine it's pretty much a given if you're playing this game). Most of the players' abilities reflect their real life attributes. Ok, so maybe Marouane Chamakh and Sebastien Squillaci are significantly less rubbish here than they are in real life, but it's all water under a bridge.
The multiplayer is also enjoyable. For a great night in, buy a few beers,invite a few of your mates around, and play each other on FIFA. It's also great to play people online, although it can also get a little boring as most people seem to choose Barcelona, Real Madrid, or Inter Milan.
At the end of the day, this is an excellent, addictive title that any football fan should pick up. Here's hoping FIFA 12 is even better.
