Wii games just keep getting better and better. First, there were simple sports games. This time, how would you want to play a soccer game of 5 on 5 or 11 on 11? With FIFA 11, that is possible. FIFA 11 for the Wii comes with two core flavors of soccer. The first is the standard 11-on-11 while the second option is a 5-on-5 offering that is unique to this game.
The 5-on-5 street-style gameplay features power-ups and game modifiers that switch things up from the normal standard of play. All of the games in the Hit the Streets mode take place on non-soccer pitch environments, think arcade style fighting game environments. You will find locales that look like a Moroccan jail with a dirt-covered pitch and no apparent exit to a playing field that looks more like a basketball gymnasium than anything else. Weird right? But this only adds up to how cool this game really is.
The graphics in Wii FIFA 11 are impressive as far as Wii graphics are concerned. It always amazes me when the graphics are textured compared to polygon based models. It just does not look realistic unless they get texturized. The sound effects simply fuels the players like they are playing real soccer. The menus are well-designed, especially the Streets to Stadiums hub and they are not hard to get used to.
I would say EA Sports did a good job with FIFA 11, continuing their long standing tradition of creating great sports nintendo wii games and this is one of them.
