Video Game of the Week – FIFA Soccer 11

Every so often, video game franchises that have been around for a long time make a huge leap forward. That was the case last year for the FIFA Soccer series, when FIFA Soccer 10 arrived and transformed both the design and gameplay. While this year’s version isn’t quite as revolutionary as its predecessor, it still improves where it can, making sure that it doesn’t do anything to disrupt a winning formula.

FIFA Soccer has always been about delivering the most realistic experience possible. Last year, EA added 360-degree Controls for smoother running and passing. This year, they have added Personality+, which increases the authenticity by differentiating players based on their individual skills. It’s uncanny to see how the game captures the unique on- and off-the-ball characteristics of players like Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney or Barcelona’s Andres Iniesta.

Other new features include 360-degree Fight for Possession, which makes the game far more physical, and Pro Passing, which puts a premium on pass accuracy and rewards the more skilled player. A series of clever customization tools in the Creation Center allow you to control the match environment, even setting up crowd chants for each team or playing tracks from your own music library. 

The My Live Season premium online service available to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 owners has also been improved, and now includes updates from all the major real-world soccer leagues, including the English Premier League, the German Bundesliga, and the Italian Serie A.

FIFA Soccer 11 includes dozens of tutorials showing players how they can pass, tackle and shoot depending on which game system you play. Perhaps the only drawback for complete beginners is the lack of a tactical overview of the game of soccer itself. But even without this, FIFA Soccer 11 is very easy to pick-up, with step-by-step screens leading you to an appropriate set-up and skill level.

With steady progress and the occasional huge leap forward, FIFA Soccer has become one of the premier video game franchises in the world. FIFA Soccer 11 does nothing to harm that well-merited status.

As you may have guessed, it is made of titanium and some stainless steel¡ªthe case is titanium and the rolex replica sale is stainless steel.

But the informal band gives it a more casual look and feel, which can be quite appealing to the modern male.
