After FIFA 10's beautiful rendition of the beautiful game, FIFA 11 doesn't have much to improve upon but still comes up with a great game

Last year's FIFA game from EA improved the soccer experience by leaps and bounds so much that people are still talking about it. Of course, it wasn't perfect and there was many places that could be improved upon in this year's FIFA.


The Old and the Green

FIFA 10 was all about action. You could quickly pass the ball upfield and then lob it over the goalie if he charges at you. FIFA 11, on the other hand, is all about realism. The passing system has been changed so that you can easily adjust how far you are passing, but it takes a lot of practice to get your short passes in accurately, strangely enough. The awesome 360 degree dribbling controls are still in the game, which is great, but it's harder to get a goal from afar now, as the goalkeeper rarely leaves the net.


FIFA 11 has a feature called Personality Plus, where the behaviors of your favourite players are copied into their video game character. Everything from the way they look, run, shoot, dribble, and react to bumps and slides is extremely realistic. If you are a big time soccer fan, you are sure to be impressed.


The Beautiful Game

Last year's popular Virtual Pro mode, where you create a player and put him on a team, is back. There is also a new Be a Goalie mode, where you play as the goalkeeper for the entire game. It's interesting, but pretty boring. It does open up the option of full on 11 vs. 11 online play where every single player is human controlled.


Unfortunately, teammate AI is still lacking, as they seem to have little awareness of the other players around them. This means that they can sometimes give up the ball easily and not position themselves on the field well enough to stop an advance.


Compared to last year's action-filled entry to the series. FIFA 11 is definitely more realistic, but somehow less fun as games slow down and go back and forth in the mid-field. Still, it's a good game that improves on last year's game in places.

Oh trust me, I know a pc is better. But when a console is slower then a console that is technically weaker. That is just, bad.

The internet browser on the PS4 is BAD not as bad as internet explorer 6 but still pretty bad. I will start with the little things., It is slower then the Wii U's browser (Wii U is an inferior console in terms of processing power.) Scrolling on the PS4 has been dumped down. While the PS3's browser wasn't as good. At least it could scroll smoothly. When you get too much cache on your browser, the browser will load slower, and when you type it takes for ever for the PS4 to register the letter that you have selected.

The playstation 1's Spyro/Crash beats most of Nintendo games in terms of fun and quality. I tend to get bored of Mario faster then getting bored of Spyro. Because Mario tends to reuse the same enemies and same gameplay. Not including spin ops. Spyro does use the same concepts but there are also little challenges which kinda give the the player a break away from the game.
