If you're a soccer (sorry, football for our European readers) fan who enjoys grinding his opponents into the grass, then you'll be please to learn that FIFA 11 will feature 11 on 11 online play for the first time. At Gamescom, executive producer Kaz Mikita said "We have finally replicated football in the virtual world." So gather up 10 more friends, and you can finally have your real-life dream team.
One special feature I really wish they'd add to this game would be "Soccer For Dummies," thereby jumping over most American's natural built-in-block against soccer nullifiers. Why this is the most popular sport in the world, yet hardly registers here is beyond me. Maybe it needs a bang-on network presentation with "ARE YOU READY FOR SOME SOCCER???" blaring at you. Soccer with 11 real-life, human players, that is.
