Many gamers who also love soccer eagerly anticipate each and every offering from Fifa and the latest version Fifa Soccer 11 is no different. While there was just a release with the World Cup version, which brought an entire new audience to soccer, it was not hailed or as highly regarded as previous Fifa Soccer games were. So, Fifa Soccer 11 needs to really bring the action and gaming to the highest levels. Unfortunately, the game falls flat and does not come through with the anticipated changes that were rumored.
Those who enjoy soccer and Fifa Soccer in particular can still enjoy the game and the game play that is offered, but there are some downsides that have to be taken into consideration. The following are some of the issues that have been found in Fifa Soccer 11:
• Glitches with the Penalty Kick Mode
• Difficult to Put Plays Together
• Soccer Stars are not Given Enough Technical Difficulty
• Players Look Correct but do Not Have the Same Skill Set
• Poor Graphic Quality in the Game Play
It is not all bad with this game and there are some highlights that need to be looked at before making the decision on whether to purchase the game or not. Two of the highlights that have been noted are the new modes and are as follows:
• Keeper Mode – Allows players to play as the goal keeper instead of being on the pitch. This can be a good choice for the novice player so they can get a feel of how the game plays. Of course, being the keeper is not the most exciting part of playing soccer so many may find this dull.
• Gaming Mode – Combines the Professional and Manager modes into one function which means that the game is easier for new players. This allows for the players to track their team throughout their divisions as well as their tournaments. There are emails and other tools that are used to track the team’s progress.
The game is suitable for all ages and the cost is around sixty dollars. It is available for the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360. While it does have some glitches that a hard core soccer fan may find disconcerting, those who just want an action packed game of soccer can have hours of fun playing Fifa Soccer11.
