The simplicity pleases me, and I’ve found myself taking the few seconds to predict the score as often as I can. EA/Playfish really saw the opportunity and jumped on it, and now players have a great reason to login to FIFA Superstars to think more about the soccer world. Surely they’ll have this for other soccer events through the year, as well. The goal that this is more than just a game is enhanced because all the players that you can choose within the actual Superstars game are real players as well, and all the music and sound effects have authentic sound quotes from real FIFA commentators as well. Check the game out and let us know what you think.
