Palpably, FIFA World Cup 2010 South Africa is the official video game for the 2010 FIFA World Cup. What’s intangible about this new EA Sports release, however, is how detailed and up to date it is.

The intense action environment and the multi-cultural audience gestures are present in the game.

Players can choose among 199 of the teams that took part in the FIFA World Cup qualifiers, which is a great bonus, considering the limited number of teams that are actually playing in the openers.

National teams that are known to be competent gets more highlights in detail and skill attributes, but with two hundred teams to choose from, it’s kind of baloney to even tell the difference.

Sadly, the Philippines did not make it into the game, citing its decision to not participate in the qualifiers. Had the national team did, this game would have been a first for Philippine football.

The good news however, is the wide variety of teams and its star players included in the game: Wayne Rooney in England, Lionel Messi in Argentina, Cristiano Ronaldo in Portugal, Julian Fabiano in Brazil, David Villa in Spain, and many more.

All 10 official World Cup stadiums are available for game play, and the game’s rosters are up to date as latest as February 2010.

The game primarily features the ‘Captain Your Country” mode, where players can choose a nation and bring them from the qualifiers all the way to the finals yourself.
