Review: 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa (Xbox 360)


There is no finer feeling that when you win a championship in a sporting event.  There is a sense of satisfaction and pride in knowing that you team rules the top of their prospective sport.  That feeling is driven even higher for the greatest sports...

All in all, FIFA World Cup provides the one definitive World Cup experience, with the atmosphere, play and modes to earn points with most football fans.  It has a few rough spots in an otherwise fantastic on the field experience.  2010 FIFA World Cup...

There is one sports title in particular that has played a vital role in my gaming life, and I have found that it tends to have a similar bond with many of my friends. World Cup ?98 kept me glued to my PlayStation all those years ago, and I have yet to...

While it falls short of FIFA 10 in many respects, 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa rewards players with an accessible and ultimately rewarding game. There are plenty of elements to improve for Brazil 2014, but, as it stands, this title is a must-have...

If it moves, kick it. If it doesn't move, kick it until it does.

The most dramatic FIFA game ever; Smooth, free-flowing football makes this a delight to play; New penalty system finally recreates the drama of pressure kicks; Goalkeepers now react on instinct; Enough content to make it worthy of a release separate...

No club teams; Despite trying to, isn't going to welcome new players to the series

England is so going to smoke us.

Improved over FIFA 10 in several ways from passing to keeper AI; complete World Cup 2010 experience

Still some offensive AI issues; Captain mode is merely ok

It's unfair to criticize the game too much for being just a Souped Up World Cup version of FIFA 10. It's really more than that. Yes, you can make the argument that dropping 120 bucks for two similar soccer games in a six month stretch is asking a tad...

2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa


This tournament-specific soccer game doesn't offer as much content as FIFA 10, but it does improve upon that game in a number of areas.

Plays a great, realistic game of soccer ; Impressive visuals and animation ; Difficulty and control options cater to players of all skill levels ; Significantly better commentary than FIFA 10

Limited online options ; Even minor lag ruins online games ; Some lengthy load times between matches ; Inconsistent feedback in Captain Your Country mode
