--Fifa 10 Screenshot.
Although not alot of Information has been told about this game, I decided it's time to create a thread for Fifa 10.
I searched for this thread, didn't find anything. I checked the Gaming chat Index, didn't find anything.

Some Improvements from past Fifa Games:
(Changed to easportsfootball.com)
A big issue for a lot of people is game speed and for me on the build we played it was perfect. The first few matches I played were on the ďNormalĒ setting and it felt great. There was time in midfield to pass and build up play, I could slow the game down if I wanted and speed it up for incisive break a ways. Me and Tom then tried out the ďSlowĒ setting. I didnít like this as much it felt a little too slow for me personally but was still much better than 09. But for those who like it really slow youíll have no issues this year.
If the weather was poor in Fifa09 then the weather in Fifa10 is nothing short of spectacular. For each stadium you can now choose between Day, Night and Overcast You can also change the conditions to either Dry, Rainy or Snowy!! Now where do I start with snow? Itís FANTASTIC, the pitch is frozen, snow is clearly falling from all camera angles and you can see the players breath itís honestly brilliant. But Rainy is quite brilliant also, you see splash puddles from players feet when they run and slide tackle and (youíll love this) me and Tom set a match to Rainy and kicked off, but it wasnít raining?? We thought ďoh a glitch perhaps?Ē but 30 mins in it bucketed down with rain..........stunned silence!
I personally loved 360 dribbling it doesnít smash you in the face and say ďhere I am look at me!Ē It just blends with the whole game to the point where you donít even notice it anymore. Everything is so much more fluid now and players really feel like they move and react naturally. Now sprinting with 360 some are worried about but donít! Itís not full 360 when you sprint thatís correct but itís not 8 directional either Iíd say itís about 16 directions. But it works really well because at full speed no one can run in circles or dance around in real life anyway. When sprinting at top speed you have to bend your runs away from the defender gradually not in sharp drastic movements, it feels really nice.
Itís probably my favourite new element from the play test. Dive in at your peril guys because Messi and Co will tear you apart. You can jink your runs, cut inside, take on the full back and actually beat a man which is pretty much unheard of in 09. But thatís not to say itís an all powerful super button, if you donít time it right or dally on the ball the defenders will swallow you up no problem. Itís going to be a real art to master this year when using it yourself and trying to defend agaisnt it. I also found this useful with players like Xavi and Iniesta to create space in midfield, the small players will not be overlooked this year for sure.
Once again a huge improvement from 09, the shooting is much heavier now and you can really drive the ball at goal rather than tapping shoot and it going into row Z. For instance I scored a cracking goal with Werder Bremen where I drilled a shot from 20 yards in to the bottom corner of the net. Volleys are also much better Mills scored a great goal with Carew where he chested down in the box and smashed a volley in. Overall shooting is great!
The player animations are great this year, there are so many more you notice as you play multiple games of Fifa10, the way the players sprint, change direction, jump, fall, slide are all great and their off the ball in game animations are even better. Example! I was Italy and cut in from the left and curled a shot towards the far post which clipped the edge of the post and went out for a goal kick. Di Natale (in game) drops to his knees looks the heavens and prays!...........Open mouths all round!
This year instead of one default jockey animation there are now about 3 or 4 I noticed, it all depends on the defenders angle and position to how they jockey. And you must time your tackles now, no more holding pressure and the AI tackling for you. In fact after 3 or 4 games I noticed I was barley using pressure as it was pretty much in-affective. The jostling is great this year when players collide itís really realistic, you no longer feel cheated when someone shoves you off the ball as it entirely depends on the individual situation as to who wins possession. Also some of the tackles are brutal, there were a few incidents where you wince at the ferocity the players show, when they go through someone boy do they go through someone It looks and feels great though and the refereeing is infinitely more clever and responsive this year.
