Why I got this game?
After playing the playstation versions of the game when I was younger I thought I would chance the game on DS as I managed to pick up a relatively cheap copy online during the sales.
The game is really simple to use and the difficulty levels allow you to play games which are not too easy but not too challenging depending on how good you are at playing it. I do enjoy this game as you can just pick it up and play a couple of matches whenever you like. The only main disadvantages are that it is quite repetitive so can become boring if you play it a lot as it is primarily the same thing over and over. Also compared the other versions of the game the graphics are hugely different. The DS graphics in comparison to xbox360 HD are well virtually incomparable. It is fair to say that this game graphically is very poor.
The game follows a simple layout the same as all of the previous editions of the game.
This allows you to select any team from a large selection of teams across the world in all of the leagues respectively. Each team is made up of the original squad up to date at the time of producing. On this selection mode you can have a free play game that is 90 "mini" minutes (you can select time scales and other options on this mode).
o Be a Pro o
Here you create a player or use an existing player and try to achieve the targets set on the game you play both for club and country and have to perform well to be picked for either squad. This is a new feature on DS but has been availiable on other consoles for some time I believe.
o Tournament o
Here you can play tournaments against other teams in order to win cups. You can also play tournaments within manager mode as you are automatically entered in to them in the season.
o Manager Mode o
This is the classic FIFA game essentially in this mode it is your job to manager a team; transfer players, play matches and virtually anything managers do in a season. You get objectives for five seasons and have to aim to achieve these in order to improve your reputation. It can be fun and challenging at times but the graphics of the game and the game play as a whole are no where near the quality that you can experience on other consoles and this is what lets the game down heavily.
o Penalty Shootout o
In this mode you select a team and practice your penalty taking and saving skills against another team. This can be fun for a bit but is more fun at the end of a match like the FA Final for example.

This enables you to alter your settings such as difficulty mode game times etc. Here you can also create your own player and also view the unlockable extras on the game.
This enables you to connect via wireless connection with single or multi-card play.
This section of the game allows you to practice areas of the game that you may struggle on here you can select as player in a position and work on set pieces and different areas of play. If you select training within the manager mode you can increase the skills of your players.
The game itself is priced highly as a top rated DS game (Around £25), however it is very expensive for its capabilities and would recommend purchasing it at the lowest price available. It can be found on some online retailers for £15 new. In stores it will generally be a higher price however pre-owned games will also be cheaper of course.
Overall I think the game is pretty average. The graphics of the game let it down hugely as the other versions of this game for example Xbox and Playstation have a great deal better graphics and are priced very similar. I do not think the high price tag for this game can be justified on this console as the graphics are by no means good and I think that DS can do better than this. The modes on this game have improved from FIFA's last attempts on DS but they still don't quite meet the mark. I would recommend the game if it was on sale at a reduced price as it may be a justified purchase then. However I would recommend FIFA Street over this game as it's much more entertaining and i'd probably even say it has better graphics!!
Summary: OK game but not worth the price tag
