When EA Sports' FIFA 10 was announced, I was worried that the team at EA Canada wouldn't be able to top this year's effort. Well, they seem determined to prove me wrong, according to some new gameplay details announced alongside a new batch of screenshots (in the gallery).

Here are some improvements that have been made across all platforms:

  • First and foremost, FIFA 10 promises to get rid of a few glitches found in 09: specifically, every once in a while, some players will do this weird backpedaling movement and get kind of "stuck" on the ball. No more of that.
  • Some of 09's star players -- like Barcelona's Samuel Eto'o and Manchester United's Christiano Ronaldo, among others -- have been retooled, knocking them from "Godlike Supermen" to "normal dudes that happen to be good at kicking." 
  • Team defensive A.I. has also been improved across all platforms; maybe I'll stand a chance against my friends Nate and William next year.
  • Lastly, EA Canada has also included a new, "360°" dribbling system -- then again, they tout the dribbling every year, so no surprises there.

My favorite addition to FIFA 10, however, isn't really new at all. Training mode is making a comeback after a painful absence this year. I've never, ever scored from a free kick in FIFA 09, but I'll be able to practice to my heart's content next year. Even better, set pieces will be fully customizable and tweak-able.

The game will come out for every console you have ever played (including the video poker machine at the bar your mom took you to when you were a toddler) on October 2. Check out an absolutely massive gallery of screenshots from every version -- DS, PC, 360/PS3, PS2, PSP, and Wii, respectively -- and hit the jump for a press release.

Review: Kinect Sports Rivals

The original Kinect Sports for the Xbox 360 did exactly what it set out to to do. It didn't set the world on fire or reinvent gaming as we know it, but it showed that despite some gimmicky features, the Kinect actually w...more

Review: Rusty's Real Deal Baseball

During the first hour of Rusty's Real Deal Baseball I babysat one of the titular character's 10 kids, played a 4DS, and fed him donuts while I listened to his marital problems. I'm glad Nintendo decided to make this game.more
