FIFA 10 features core gameplay refinements based on responsiveness and intelligence, plus a completely overhauled Manager Mode that includes more than 50 major improvements. These enhancements and more deliver a new standard for authenticity, as FIFA 10 continues to set the benchmark in both innovations and gameplay as the most complete simulation of soccer.

Soccer is now considered to be the number one sport in the world. FIFA was created with that in mind and is now slowly becoming the world’s largest franchise. In fact, it just released FIFA 10 a couple of months ago and the response was really astonishing. With just days after its release, millions of matches have already been played.
In comparison to FIFA 09, FIFA 10 does not offer players much difference in terms of the featured games. What it offers instead is an improvement in the gameplay making it more exciting since you get to have more control over the players as well as more movement from the players. The animation has also been enhanced; especially the setting and give you the real feel of being in a stadium with lots of people watching you play the game. However, the star plays still don’t look like the real deal especially on PSP.
The Clive Tisley and Andy Gray commentary team is still one of the best features that set FIFA 10 apart from other sports games with commentaries. It seems to be amazingly accurate it makes you really wonder how they managed to do that. Unlike other game sport commentaries that say the same thing repeatedly, which can be quite annoying at some points, the FIFA10 versatile duo are doing the commentaries extremely well without hardly a hint of repetition.
The popular game modes can now be played again. The quiz mode is there to challenge you to think and recall all that you know about soccer. The season mode offers a whole season game with your chosen team if you want to play that way. Tournament mode is back with a lot of additions to the cup tournaments available for playing. Every game mode offers you different levels of satisfaction so if you get bored with one, you simply have to switch game mode.
One noticeable addition to the game using the PSP platform is showing you a rough walkthrough of how your opponent can attack you and how it can use your apparent weakness to its advantage. Mind you, it can’t always predict what’s really going to happen since you are still in complete control of the game and might change your strategy halfway through it. Still, it is a great addition because it somehow challenges you to do better and strengthen identified weaknesses in some of the ways you handle and play the game.
The game itself provides a sense of “real feel” to it. The players’ moves when they attack are astonishingly very much like the ones you see on an actual game. Players now move more naturally, you can even sense more force in the drive to attack. On the defense side, players are now able to multitask. It is mind-blowing how the game can interchangeably switch from so much easier to a lot harder, depending on whether you are defending or attacking. Although, it all varies along with the level of difficulty you choose, of course.
FIFA 09 was a huge success and it won’t come as a surprise if FIFA 10 would become an even bigger one. FIFA 10 might fall a little bit short to the expected augmentations and enhancements; still, it has the makings of a fantastic game that can get you so addicted to it. It’s just so awe-inspiring you’ll never want to stop playing!
