Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that FIFA 11 is a soccer simulation game that offers a fairly authentic experience. The game is similar to the console version, in that it sticks to the rules of the sport and offers an enormous selection of teams, stadiums, and even soccer balls. There's nothing controversial, but in order to create an authentic experience there is a fair bit of product placement. There is no multiplayer mode at present, but developer EA says one is "coming soon."
Is it any good?
FIFA 11 is about as authentic a soccer experience as you're going to find, short of stepping onto the pitch yourself. It's a loving tribute to the game of soccer (or "football" as it's called outside of America) and the enthusiasm can carry through to the player. The game is visually gorgeous, but its controls are average at best and can cause a fair bit of frustration.
