Only rate it 8+ because of the difficulty.

FIFA 10 is a soccer sim. Right? The violence only involves slide tackles. Which normally either take the player down or get the ball. This is rated 8+ by me because of the difficulty. Not the content. Common sense say Iffy for 8+ honestly? Slide tackling is not appropiate for 8 year olds? I was playing GTA when I was 8. This is appropiate for anyone who can play it.

This title has:

Too much violence

EA has left no stone unturned in making FIFA Soccer 10, one of the most elegant and most realistic sports games available to date. Sure, you’ll be able to upload your photo and paste it on the player you create. But more, it’s the attention to detail that makes this one a winner. For instance, Manager Mode alone has been tweaked to add 50 improvements, not the least of which is a player transfer system that takes more than money into consideration. Even more important is the ability to move freely on the field in 360 degrees of motion. Like all games of this sort, there are minor audio errors from the sportscasters and occasional glitches in the quality of the video and graphics. Still, dollar for dollar, the FIFA Soccer 10 is well worth the price of play. With 600 international teams from which to choose, hours upon hours of enjoyment await the true soccer fan.

Online interaction: Online play is seamless and varied. However, if you don't play with a friend, expect trash talking, cheating, and players leaving the game if you're in the lead - before the game is done.
