Heya All,

I was lucky enough to be included in the closed beta of Fifa Online. Now as there is a huge base of American players here i dont know if Fifa was ever popular over there (Please do inform me).

The game as a start is very good and promising. Firstly and most importantly this game will be free at release, take this into account when making your opinions as i have.

Its run off the same engine as Fifa 10 on the PC. They have added this fantastic mouse control addition in which you can control the whole game with it. Pass and Long ball for left click, Shoot and slide tackle with right and change player with the mouse wheel. This sounds very basic but basic dosent mean boirng here, it works perfectly with the graphics and is amazingly different in controling any Football game i have ever played. If this dosent tickle your fancy then you can always plug your trusty X-box or Playstation control in and play that way but i find the mouse both new and more fun at this time.

At this stage you can only play the World Cup and Multiplayer matches. The World cup is very good and has all up to date squads and players. It is just like a normal WC with group stages and the knock-out stage. The Multiplayer is funa dn you get to play against your friends and random people, it is rather buggy atm because testing is only 3 hours a day but the game that i did play was very fun and a good challenge :).

Everytime you win you get tokens and expierence. Experience obviously goes toward your manager level, which is 19 at this time. Tokens are used for player enhancements, think of them as your MMO 'Gear'. You get new boots, shinpads. gloves all sorts of crap and add it to a players. They each have there own 'stat' which increase that players attacking, defending etc ability.

The social aspect is not so bad but could use improvement. There is a chat pannel in the loby area which you can talk in different 'rooms' like general, football discussion and so on and there is private rooms for you and your mates to chat in. The window is rather buggy so i havnt really used it because its a pain but its promising none the less.

There is lots of things to come in this game and im greatly looking forward to it. You can find out other information and sign up for the beta at - you can also reply or PM me with any questions you have. I will be producing and updating a blog and fan-site as soon as possible.

Thanks alot
