FIFA 10 (DS)
Advantages: Keeps my son entertained
Disadvantages: Perhaps not for grown-ups
I'm writing this review purely from a third party persepctive, it is my 6 year old son who plays the game. Neither am I a gaming or technical expert so cannot really comment on the technicality of the graphics etc. Most of the reviews of the game I have read have rated it as rather poor, however my son gets great enjoyment from the game.
My son received this game as a reward for good behaviour over a period of time. He has had it a fair few months now and I can honestly say that anytime his DS is picked up the cartridge in the DS will be Fifa 10. This game is played on a daily basis, now I don't allow my son to play all day on his DS, strictly after homework and if his behaviour has been good.
I listen to my son playing the game and he gets really involved in the matches, it is almost like having a running commentary from Match of the Day. He really gets into the characters and the flow of the match, the game holds his attention, enthusiasm and he generally has great enjoyment from it. He shows me action replays and looks for consolation if a referee's decision does not go his way. I have looked at the images on screen and the graphics seem ok for an electronic game, it is obvious who the teams are if not the individual players. I cannot compare this version against over consoles as we only have it for the DS.
This game seems to be good fun and my 6 year old thoroughly enjoys it, older DS players may want a more tactically challenging game but for my son this is a game he plays over and over again. A definite recommendation from my 6 year old son.
Summary: A game to be enjoyed by children
