The most impressive aspect of this game on PS3 and Xbox 360 is the graphics. Player likenesses, soccer pitches, and stadiums are rendered with stunning realism. It's also fun and accessible, allowing casual players to jump into a single game while letting hardcore soccer fans engage in extended tournaments and careers.

There are a few downsides, however. First, the audio commentary is sometimes delayed, repetitive, or, worse, completely out of sync with the action on the field. Plus, the true soccer geeks to whom this game is marketed might be disappointed by the absence of some key leagues and teams. Many fans prefer EA's FIFA series of soccer games for this reason, though it can come down to a matter of personal taste, as both have distinct features. In short, this is a very good game that offers lots of bang for your buck.

Online interaction: Online play will allow players to challenge friends in a variety of tournaments and modes. However, you can also choose to play strangers online where you can expect foul language and poor sportsmanship aplenty. Common Sense Media does not recommened open online play for children under age 12.
