2010 FIFA World Cup captures the excitement of World Cup play through its enhanced presentation of the stadiums, players, and crowds. Playing through the tournament sure gets us excited for June.

We like

  • The new, tighter and enhanced gameplay
  • The World Cup flair and terrific presentation
  • The Captain Your Country game mode

We dislike

  • The occasional online lag
  • Still a bit formulaic
  • Questionable buy since another FIFA is out this year
