Electronic Arts' FIFA Soccer franchise was – for a while – in second place in the soccer game market. FIFA 2009 put an end to that, and the 2010 version looks very much as if it's going to maintain the high standards.

Key additions to the latest version are much improved goal-keeper AI and reactions. No longer does your keeper simply lie forlornly on the deck if a chip goes over him, now he will attempt to get back to the goal line and tip the ball away. The additional AI also means that the keeper will look to narrow angles and generally cause the strikers more mental stress than has been available in the past.

And he'll need to. Outfield players are now armed with a new 'Urgency' system. This is helped out by the ability to actually muscle other players (legally but firmly) off the ball.

Pre-game training has also been improved with the addition of a new set-piece creator that enables you to plan several multi-player moves that can be quickly incorporated in a real-game situation; strategy and real footballing knowledge will be at a premium to get the most out of the game.

Not only will players be able to battle through a full season with their favourite team in Authentic Season mode, they'll also be able to play for a spot on their nation's 2010 FIFA World Cup team in Be a Pro: Club and Country.
